Ebay Description:

GO BACK TO THE 60'S IN THIS SUPER NICE VW DUNE BUGGY! You are bidding on a very nice Meyers Manx style VW dune buggy. Originally constructed in the sixties, it was done right the first time, has been nicely updated but is reliatively unmolested except to make it reliable and a super driver. It's even still in the original orange gelcoat!

Starting with a shortened 1957 convertible floorpan, the metal is rust free and in great shape. The suspension and transaxle are 1965 VW. Trans was resealed in march, with new bearings, boots, and complete brake kit including new drums. The motor is a dual port 1600 vintage 1974. So, you have 12 volt electrics, electronic ignition with a pertronics unit. Trick exhaust system (not too loud). Has new clutch, pressure plate, throwout and pilot bearings. Shifts nice with the stock shifter. Just repaired the hand brake assembly.

Plastic bucket type seats with removable and replaceable covers. This one is a really nice driver, wonderful on the backroads. The top is 60's vintage, seams have been resewn, comes with side curtains to boot( have not tried them). It will keep the sun off your head, but if you need full weather resistance, I would use it for a pattern to create a new one. Or have your upholstery guy create a bikini type top, very inexpensive.

I will also include the VW tow bar so you can bring the car anywhere (you can easily forget it's back there, so be careful).

Also included is a spare set of rear wheels (for your other tires) and a trick display surfboard from Corona (for display only, not a real surfboard).

Last, but not least, you get a COX DUNE BUGGY from the 70's. Maybe you can see the family resemblance? All in all, everything you need to have your own car show anywhere! Loads of fun, all at an affordable price. BID NOW!

This is a dune buggy you would be proud to own. I would keep it myself, but am having knee problems and have difficulty driving a clutch because of this.
