Ebay Description:

This is a great looking and fun ride. The fiberglas body is in excellent unmodified shape and so is the rustfree floorpan. It still sports the original orange metalflake glitter gelcoat as it was applied before the buggy was assembled. The paint looks good and shines for the most part, but is not perfect. In some areas it has oxidized and there are minor chips, dings and scratches. The fiberglas is extremely thick and gives it tremendous rigidity. I am not sure who the manufacturer is, but it has the same spare tire mold on the left side in the rear seat area like the real Manx Buggys have. The work on the shortened pan is very well done. The king pin style front axle looks almost new. Period chrome wheels with Moon caps and Mickey Thompson style tires all around. Tires have good threads, but show some age on the sidewalls - however they did cruise down the freeway at 65mph recently just fine. The windshield is in good condition, stylishly raked and held by a polished aluminium frame. A Mopar Flip-Up gas cap completes the look in the front between the chrome headlights with red indicators on top. Chrome plated bumpers front and rear in good shape. The front seats are racing style fiberglass buckets with black vinyl covers in great shape and red lap belts. Both seats slide forward and back on the original tracks. The rear seat covers the battery and the tire mold. It is black vinyl and has one belt across. Headlights, taillights and brakelights work. A little ball horn is installed on the drivers side. Even the windshield wipers work, but currently there are no arms installed, only caps. I can't remember the last time I had to use the wipers on a dune buggy. The turnsignal switch works intermittent. It might need a new one at some point in the future. Speedometer & odometer work. The trusty 6 Volt electrical system is still in proper working order and got a new regulator. The radio hole cover is from 1953 Pontiac Chieftain, the taillights from 1964 Mercury. Sturdy rollbar, new brake drums in the rear, newer shocks all around, Grant 3 spoke steering wheel, chrome airfilter & beltcover, marble shiftknob. Dual trumpet style exhaust gives it a great note, to too loud. The engine is an older single port unit. Not sure what size it is. Even the STP sticker on the dash is appropriate for this classic little roadster. The buggy runs, drives, steers and stops without problems. It is street-legal and titled as a 1964 model year, with clear AZ title and does not require emissions testing. The title is marked as actual miles and the odometer shows 93345 mls. I would guess that these are miles of the donor bug, in addition to what the buggy accumulated. Also comes with a tow bar. You are guaranteed lots of smiles per mile and whether you take it to the sand, the snow, or Mexico – it is entertainment with investment potential at an entry level rate!
