small tail box may be a Glitterbug, The Tarantula also had a small box and I think the Corsair may as well. Dash design might bring this id home. The Giltterbug usually had emblems but not all of the time (this one does not)

That is what I am thinking. A late Sears Rascal with the large tail, or a Terra Buggy, who I understand made the Rascal for Sears.

What are they worth?

Did you try Dune Buggy Archives...

http://dunebuggyarchives.com

And as for value, depends on "market" maybe $1000 if its dead, maybe $5-7000 all cleaned up for "show" and derivable...

I'll tell you exactly what it's worth.

It's worth digging out of that pile, cleaning up and driving!

Love the pinstriping!! :D

Since there is no air filter on it does the engine turn over?

Human nature is funny - find something covered in bird c'hit in a barn and dreams of Corvette #1 or Publisher's Clearing House —FOR LIFE— are the first things that come to mind.

"What someone will pay for it." is the ACV.

Looks like the start of a good project tho'...

Is it worth more or less than when this thread was started 5 years ago?
