Usually a picture of the sides, back, dash and hood are needed for help.

Looks a lot like a manx clone of some sort. The hood was probably custom done. I would pull it off and check out the work from behind

Tub looks pretty much like any other rip-off MANX body (tub) clone.... Hood is only thing at this point that makes it "custom" or unique....

You might find it here...

Was someone thinking about going watercooled with that hood?

Difference in paint tint sort of makes me think the hood is not original to body.... Or it could be somebody painted body and forgot to do hood, or ran out of paint...

Very cool bug, BDB!
I have no idea what this is, but Dale is most likely right; a Manx rip-off.
