Pretty sure the shell is a Cobra buggy, made by a southern boatyard in very small numbers.
Photos printed on genuine ILFORDŽ paper.

"Ah, Beach Buggies, sure, just a quick cheap way of getting a few more years out of a rusty Beetle. You can throw one together in a weekend." anon.

Thankyou for tidying up the links ;-)up
How did you do it? where did i go wrong, the first pic is what i would really like people to see :)

Yes cautious i am, thats why I've never bought one before, but the midlife crisis is starting and if i don't now i never will. Just don't want to buy something that i will have issues with keeping on the road

Cobra, never heard of them, ill try and find some other pics of them on the internet ;-)up

You'll be very lucky, they only made literally a handful nearly 50 years ago!
