Jason Weidhuner is a Chevy guy at heart, but as his wheeling experience grew he decided he wanted a buggy for extreme trails and maybe a bit of desert/rock racing. So how do you combine your love for Bow Tie iron with a desire for a tube car? You stuff solid Chevy bits in a well-thought-out chassis and skin it in classic GM bodywork, even if it means scouring junkyards to find old panels in matching colors. The Chassis was designed and built by S&N Fab in Washington. That GM aqua blue-green color is called Light Green, Medium Blue Green Poly, or Medium Green depending on the year and the shade, but Jason was able to track down enough old sheetmetal to give his Frankenstein-stitched buggy skin a unique look that caught our eye from 100 yards away.

The Curr The aqua paint is all original from the late ’60s and early ’70s. Panels from four junkyard trucks were rescued and the rust trimmed out before being cut and fitted into a new, slimmer buggy body. Some panels even had layers of later paint sanded off to reveal the original hue. The rear bodywork is actually from a front fender as well; however, the roof was painted to match.The aqua paint is all original from the late ’60s and early ’70s.
