Nice buggy and great story. Riding a bicycle to Ojai that a story in itself.
Did you Dad change the rear of the body on later models?

Man that looks cool! I really like the shot of the day you brought it home. It looks really rugged with the centerlines and beefy rubber on them. Nice job on the chassis, super clean!
