Ebay Description:

For auction is a stunning lime green Dune buggy. Manx clone body style, solid tube chassis, high performance JCS engine, and 4 wheel disc brakes. This bug draws lots of attention. Built as a modern interpretation of a classic style dune buggy to a high specification from new and reconditioned parts. We bought this bug in 2005 as a fully reconditioned rolling chassis and a box of parts and we had it on the road in 2007. It has done just over 5,000 miles since then. In 2008 it was upgraded to a fully rebuilt turn-key JCS performance engine to give it great highway cruising capability. The oil cooler was included to provide worry free-driving in hot down-town Charleston SC traffic. It has not been used off-road. It draws smiles and attention from many people, from kids, hot girls and the rich and famous alike. Features: Chassis - rock solid tube chassis, not sure who supplied it but it's professionally made and has a fiberglass floor pan Running gear - independent rear suspension, 4 wheel disc brakes Body - solid Manx clone, lovingly prepared and professionally sprayed with stunning pearl green (2006 Dodge Challenger Daytona Sublime Green) Engine - JCS 1914cc twin carb performance turn-key engine ($3,249 list) with oil cooler and ceramic coated exhaust, full spec includes: * Late Model Dual Oil Pressure Relief Case * New Fan Shroud & Sheet Metal * Big Valve 041 Heads * New EMPI Dual 40 mm Carbs * New Piston & Liners * New Generator * Rebuilt Crank, Rods & Flywheel * New 009 Distributor * JCS 110 Cam * New Bosch Blue Coil * New HD 30mm Gear Oil Pump * 8 Dowel Crank & Flywheel * Heavy Duty Swivel Adjusters * Hi Carbon Steel Pushrods * Wider (23%) Cooling Fan * More efficient 'Dog House' style Fan Shroud Housing Aluminum oil cooler
