This one is mine:
This is a genuine Meyers Manx dune buggy with the (1968) serial number plate and (circle R) nose badge still attached. I purchased it in 2006 as an original, worn but well built buggy, and spent several years renovating it into the buggy I wanted to build in 1969. The original metal-flake finish has never been painted, although it does have some spot fiberglass repairs that are primed. It has a nice 'patina'. It is street legal in Washington state, with working turn signals, brake lights, horn, wipers and brake lights. I last drove it the summer of 2010 just before the plates expired. It is based on and titled as a 1967 VW Bug. It runs, handles and stops great around town, and is a comfortable highway cruiser. It has enough power to more than keep up with traffic. It is not a show car in its present form, but it is a solid, unmolested, original Meyers Manx ready for its new owner to use as is, or take to the next level. I no longer have time to devote to this old Manx, and need the space.
