By 1960, Bug Karts had side rails and (still) the narrow steering support hoop (or whatever that's called). It would be three years later until the Bug Scorpion would sport a wider hoop. The above 1960 model is pictured with a Clinton engine and knobby tires (slicks were usually an option in those days), and was certified by the American Kart Manufacturers' Association.
The above ad appeared in magazines in early 1960.
