Ebay Description:

1968 Manx VW Dune Buggy w/title


I purchased the chassis, body and engine off ebay in January 2010. I worked on this for several weekends and completed the restoration in January 2011, with all newly purchased parts. The engine is a 1967 single port 1500cc, which has great low end torque and gets great gas mileage. I had the block checked and some work done on the engine by a local professional VW shop. Since the rebuild, I have put 350 miles on it. Top speed on a warm day is 60mph. It does not burn oil or leak oil. The fiberglass was professionally epoxy primed, painted and clear-coated. There are some scratches and flaws in the paint which have been touched up, however, they are difficult to see. The pan has been sanded down to bare metal, primed and painted with rustoleum oil based black paint. There is no rust anywhere. All exterior metal has been primed, sprayed with textured undercoating and topped with rustoleum oil based black paint. I am not an offroad enthusiast, so I have only taken it on the road. It gets looks, waves and thumbs up everywhere I go and is tons of fun to drive!!! If you do not like attention and do not like talking to people, this is not for you...

Here is a list of all of the new parts that I purchased in 2010:

New 75 amp alternator to replace the generator, New atlernator belt, New 31 pict carb, New air filter with chrome cover, New Flame Thrower electronic distributor, New Flame Thrower chrome coil, New racing spark plug wires, New Bosch spark plugs, New chrome fuel pump, New racing style crank pulley, New fuel lines, New Maxxis 195/60 15 front tires, New Maxxis 275/60 15 rear tires, New 15" steel wheels, New front disc brakes with drilled rotors and red painted calipers, New brake lines throughout with braided stainless steel on front disc brakes, New dual master brake cylinder and reservoir, New headlights and cans, New front turn signals, New locking gas cap cover, New front bumper, New driving halogen driving lights, New license plate light, New emergency brake handle and cables, New adjustable coil over shocks all around, New air horn, New side and rear view mirrors, new ignition, horn and light switches, New rubberized stereo antenna, New wiring harness with fuse box, New turn signal switch, New steering wheel, New racing style seats, New red vinyl racing seat covers, New red RCI racing harness and lap belt, New skull shift knob, New custom fabricated roll cage in 1.5" and 1.75" steel tubing, New roll cage padding, New marine fire extinguisher, New Autometer racing speedometer, New Boss 80 watt marine stereo w/CD player, memory card slot, removable face plate, carrying case and remote control, New Kicker marine tweeters mounted on dash, mids mounted in rear and 8" woofer mounted behind drivers seat, New Sosche marine stereo cover, New battery and cables, New rear engine cage, New cargo net, New heat resistant underlayment and New carpet.
