Item location: Oakdale, California

Hello Folks, I have, for sale, an original ( pre serial number ) Myers Manx for sale. This bug is currently listed in the Myers Manx registry. Bruce Myers himself verified the buggy's authenticity. We call it the "Plum Bug". I have had this car for about 4 years sitting in my garage or always covered in my driveway. There is "NO RUST!" This is basically a "barn find" buggy. I bought this bug to restore to original condition and maybe drop it down a little bit. Alas, life gets in the way. In that time I was diagnose with cancer and the Plum Bug has done nothing but sit. Plum Bug runs and the motor is very strong. I do believe if it had the traction it could climb trees. I am not totally certain of the engine size the serial number is D0705273. It is a dual port engine with 2 of the largest carbs I have ever seen on a motor like this. Just before I bought the bug the previous owner had installed a new heavy duty clutch and I haven't put more than 20 miles on it. Like I said I had big plans for this buggy, but due to my condition, I do not have the time or the funds to restore it to it's former glory. I do started it up once every couple of months and drive it around the block, just to keep the fluids flowing. In fact, I went out and started the motor 11/7/14, runs great. I can't tell you much about the engine. It has a.009 distributor, electronic ignition, electric fuel pump, an air/fuel mixture regulator. high performance oil cooler and filter. I did have the electrical worked on by a local certified mechanic. I am sorry to see Plum Bug go... I did have such high hopes for her. I wanted to install some sidepods , a dark cherry-high gloss paint, chrome mags, rechrome the engine, and install a custom interior. Please remember this is a running "Project Vehicle". With a little TLC it can be a nice ride and with a little more TLC it can be a show car. This is an "AS IS"/"WHERE IS"sale.

Funnybug says: Is "Meyers" really that hard to spell correctly?
