I'm looking to purchase a Manx SR.  I'm willing to travel for a decent car, but probably needs to be east of the Mississippi.  Please let me know what you have and we can start from there.

A couple on Samba right now, but asking a premium. One in New Jersey for under $4K, but missing the roof and some other pieces, listed on Craigslist.

Rick - I'm aware of the two on the Samba.  I agree that they are asking a premium for them.  The one on Craigslist in New Jersey sounds interesting.  I tried to find it, but can't.  Do you have a link that you could share?

I just did a quick CL search and it didn't turn up, so the ad may have expired. I'll keep looking.. generally I see one or two every couple of months listed. Shame if I can't find it... someone on eBay has a roof and canvas sections for sale!

And now on ebay:

That's how I had gotten mine for less money - the seller had it on CL for $1K less than ebay and I called him on it. Can't sell for two prices in two places and not expect someone to catch it!

The pictures really don't show much detail about this car.  I've sent a note to the seller, but no reply yet.  I can't tell if it is a round headlight or square headlight car.  The rear deck looks off without the top.  Does anybody recognize what was done to the rear?  It looks like the original rear panels have been changed or are gone.  My goal is to have an original looking Manx SR.  Does anyone know this car?  Can it be brought back?

I've been in contact with the guy who has the top sections for sale.  I had hoped to find a complete car, but I might have to buy the pieces separately.

Any input would be appreciated.

Looks complete to me except for the roof panels. The hood has a funny scoop on it for some reason, and the grey rear panel is something I've never seen before - definitely looks custom, but if everything is "together" and uncut underneath, that wouldn't be a deal breaker if you can find the roof panels. And son of a gun - they're still listed on eBay as well: For $300 it might not be a bad deal since generally you can't find them separately.

If all else failed, Vince in NC (surfnc) has the molds for most all the parts.
