I re-pack and ship US purchases for my buddy Terry Reeves in Australia. Today he had a big box of junk sent to me and I dug this out.
 
He's got a pretty good eye as it was piled in a "make offer" lot on eBay. He made a lowball offer and ended up with it all. Can't find front wheels but the rest looks like it is here.
 
Funny thing is when we first got the dune buggy thread rolling, he is the guy that had a new body that Gene used for the initial molds.
 
This frame is the right length, just a tad shorter than the one I have.

I like that!  
 
Built one of my own from Gene's bodies.

Question is... are you going to send it on or claim it missing?  ^_^

I'll send it on. Terry has found me some great stuff over the years. I'm lucky to have such good trading buddies. I am as happy for them to get stuff as I am for myself 

 

I did a buildup with the frame I found in my junk box last year and one of Gene's new bodies.
