EBAY Description:

This is a 1969 EMPI IMP that has been completely rebuilt. It starts with a welded epoxy painted tube chassis that has all new bearings, stainless steel brake lines, height adjustable rear arms, shocks, vintage Keystone Classic Wheels and new tires. All new brakes with all cylinders replaced and all new shoes. Then 3/4 inch marine starboard was the floor material secured with stainless steel or galvanized nuts and bolts. This platform is SOLID and should last many years. The engine is a type 3 1600 single port with new jugs and pistons. A new carburetor, new generator, new wiring harness, new voltage regulator, fuse panel, gauges, battery, and headlights and taillights were installed. A hot spark electronic ignition rounds out the engine work. The swing axel is from a 1965 Volkswagen with new seals and boots. This is a fully rebuilt car. The paint is in very good condition having been painted about a year ago but recently fitted to the chassis

purchased this project as a donor for a Manx that I am building. When I saw the welded frame and realized that the IMP is only shortened 12" instead of 14 1/4", I decided to build this one out and sell it. I recently attended MANX on the Banx with this car and it preformed flawlessly. I towed it to the outer banks then drove it from Corolla to the Virginia state line and back. It was great fun! Nothing needs to be done to this car but enjoy it. It has a new windshield, new tires, new brakes and I think that I would keep it except that I drove a Manx as a daily driver from 1968- 1970 and I am rebuilding one just like the one I had. The original color of this car was sunburst orange. It has a clean 1965 VW North Carolina title. It has new seats and adjusters and the back seat frame material is also marine starboard like the floorpans. Windshield wipers work and rear view mirror taken off for travel.
