Only thing I can say about mine other than that was the main reason I bought it - it had the glass tub and fenders and was in good shape - is that I have jackknifed it with my M416, and it broke the side marker light and bent the handle on the corner of the trailer. I heard a crunch, thought I was going to have a large hole, but I only have a light scratch in the gelcoat. I have drove it daily for the past 5 years, wheeled it a few times, and used it for yard work. I have a crack in the paint along the front where the cowl meets the part going up to the windshield. It is a double walled tub. Not certain on mfgr.
My uncle many years ago swapped a 'glass tub onto his early '7, and when he saw my 78 tub he was impressed with how much better it was made than his was, it was a single walled 4WDH version since that was all that was offered back in the early 80's. He never really did more than DD it, maybe some yard work. I guess it held up well, until the kid he sold it to wrapped it around a phone pole because he couldn't responsibly handle the 327 power in it.
