nice build, decent price.

TWO LISTINGS THOUGH, 6 MONTHS APART. SECOND LISTING TELLS A DIFFERENT STORY

Ebay Description:

FOR SALE IS A MEYERS MANX DUNE BUGGY!!! THIS IS A VERY RARE VEHICLE AND I HATE TO PART WITH IT BUT I NEED THE MONEY. I GOT IT FROM A FRIEND WHO HAS OWNED IT FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS. THE BODY HAS BEEN REMOVED AND COMPLETELTY REPAINTED PROFESSIONALLY, IT IS LIKE A PLUM CRAZY PURPLE. WHEN I BOUGHT IT LAST YEAR IT WOULDN'T START ON ITS OWN DUE TO A FAULTY FUEL PUMP, BUT WHEN I PUT THE FUEL LINE IN A GAS CAN IT FIRED RIGHT UP AND IT RUNS WELL AND DOESN'T SMOKE. I PUT THE TRANSMISSION IN GEAR AND IT MOVED WITH EASE.

THERE IS A WHOLE LIST OF NEW PARTS THAT THIS LIL BUGGY HAS HAD DONE TO IT

FRONT SHOCKS
RUBBER BRAKE LINES
HARD BRAKE LINES
BRAKE DRUMS
BRAKE SHOES
TIE RODS-INNER AND OUTTER
BRAKE RESIVOIR
HORN
REAR SHOCKS AND SPRINGS
REAR BRAKE HOSES
REAR HARD BRAKE LINES
REAR BRAKE DRUMS AND LININGS
CLUTCH AND PRESSURE PLATE
COIL
DIST. CAP
WIRES
VOLTAGE REGULATOR
STARTER
AXEL BOOTS
COMPLETE EXHAUST
FRONT AND REAR BUMPER
WINDSHIELD
BELTS
NEW FLOOR PANS
WIRING
COMPLETE CUSTOM SEATING OVER $2,000 IN THAT ALONE
HEADLIGHTS AND TURNSIGNALS
IM SURE I FORGOT SOMETHINGS
THE PROBLEMS WITH THE MANX IS IT NEEDS FINISHED, THE REAR TIRES DON'T HOLD AIR AND THE KEY IS MISSING AND I THINK THAT THE CARB NEEDS REPLACED OR NEEDS REBUILT. THAT IS ABOUT ALL THAT I CAN THINK OF.

 

 

2ND LISTING:

and a somewhat "different story" 6 months later..

HELLO, AND THANKS FOR VIEWING MY AUCTION. UP FOR SALE IS MY MEYERS MANX DUNE BUGGY I HAVE HAD FOR APPROXIMATELY FOR 3 YEARS. I DRIVE IT ALL OVER TOWN AND I WOULD CONSIDER IT DEPENDABLE. I HAVE HOWEVER NOT DRIVEN IT OUT OF TOWN OR STATE. IT STARTS UP EASILY AND RUNS GOOD AND REALLY IS JUST AN ALL AROUND GOOD LITTLE TOY. I WOULD LIKE TO SAY IT COULD USE SOME RESTORING AND TLC TO MAKE IT EVEN NICER. IT HAS NEW SHOCKS AND NEW BRAKES, BATTERY AND CABLES, COIL AND OTHER ODDS AND ENDS. THE TIRES HOLD AIR AND HAVE SOMEWHAT DECENT TREAD.

IT HAS A CLEAN TITLE AND HASNT BEEN WRECKED TO MY KNOWLEDGE. I WOULD SAY THAT I HAVE AROUND $8000 INVESTED BUT I AM AROUD THE HALFWAY POINT FOR MY RESERVE. GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY BIDDING!!!!!
