Battlestar Galactica / Buck Rogers Hover Mobile question


Well-Known Member
Hi fans,

I'm making a paper model version of the Hover Mobile that was used on "Battlestar Galactica" and "Buck Rogers" in the late 1970s. I'm a bit stuck at the moment because I don't know how the dashboard and steering wheel shall look like. In both shows there is no shot showing the detail. So this is my question: Does anybody of you know what type of car was used as a base for the vehicle? It has two round front lights behind the grill, it could be a jeep or a golf cart. Thank you in advance. :)
