short money for a pedigree Manx

Ebay Description:

This Manx has been authenticated by Bruce Meyers in person and all paperwork is included with sale. Low hour VW Paradise 1915 with a single weber carb Pertronix electronic dist. conversion. VW Paradise confirmed they built the engine and the ID number stamped on the block matches their records. Previous owner had engine built, ran it briefly on his ranch before it was stored for an extended period of time. Engine has a flat spot off idle that needs to be tuned out. Transmission appears to be original, all 4 forward gears as well as reverse work fine. Front end was upgraded to a longer travel beam. Dash was replaced with an aluminum custom setup with aftermarket guages. Tires are virtually brand new and wheels are in great condition. This is a great example of an early original Meyers Manx that has lots of potential. It should be noted that this vehicle does run and drive, but needs a little TLC to be 100%. Items requiring attention: Lights were converted to LEDs, brake/tail and headlights function, however turn signals don't. The wiring could be cleaned up, wheel bearings and brakes should be inspected, steering box has some play (adjustment or new steering box). No smog required in CA as it is titled as a 1960. This vehicle is CA street legal but hasn't been registered for a number of years. No penalty fees due, as it is "out of the books" as DMV stated. Minimal registration fees will be the new owners responsibility. Email through ebay with any questions. I have a video of the buggy being driven that I can email to interested parties as requested. No reserve auction, bid to own.

***Update*** I forgot to mention that I have the original windshield frame with original glass that is also included. The glass has a crack vertically in the middle otherwise it is in good condition. Also have an aluminum skid plate that was under the engine, mounted to the engine cage. I removed it to change the oil and havent put it back. Today I tuned the carb per webers instructions and set the timing per online instructions for an 009 distributor and it is running much better
