Item location: San Dimas, California

Here we have a 1961 VW Meyers Manx style dune Buggy, I have been told it is an early Manx when they were still in early days. But this is not certain and cant be confirmed. It however is a solid original car that was made and registered as a 1961 VW on title it says CP under model the numbers on vin match the pan # on hump at rear of pan.. I inherited from a relative who passed away. I kept for a few years but recently got a Ford Bronco and want to keep it so widow said go ahead and sell dune buggy. It is currently registered in my name on non op status with a clean Calif. Title so no hassles here. Car seems to be all original 1961 VW with 1200 40 HP motor and a swing axle trans with king pin front end. It still has its original 6 volt system even. Everything is in working condition and it starts up pretty easy if you have been driving it. If it sits too long it sometimes needs a shot of quick start so battery doesn't fail. Car even has its original gell coat with heavy blue metal flake not perfect but looks real good. It always gets thumbs up. I have had it for a few years and haven't really drove it that much so it will need to be inspected for safety but again when I got it from my uncle he was using it regular up in Big Bear City ( In the summer of course). I can tell you this much the shifting is a bit sensitive but I adjusted shifter and seems to work well now, Also I have had to add Brake fluid so I believe that one of the rear wheel cylinders has a small leak. Leaks a little trans oil and engine oil but not so you cant use it just want to try and disclose all that I know Everything else seems to work fine at this time, but car is sold as is with no guarantees its just too old.

Car is avail for inspections send over phone number and I can call you. Also I can assist in loading if you send your truck. I can also deliver to transport company for a fee. Car also comes with a Tow bar with a 1 7/16 Ball.
