A little off topic but it seems to me that I have seen or read about some glass bodied model As from the mid '50s. Maybe there was a thread on the HAMB about them. I don't think that they were a "manufactured" body as in mass produced though. It seems to me that there were kits to build your own Kookie T. I could be wrong. As exhaust goes that one was interesting and no one could say that it was not "trad". At least one rendition of it had 4 pipes per side running back below the bucket on each side.
