This Meyers Manx dune buggy was commissioned by the selling dealer in 2014 and built in the style of Bruce Meyers’ “Old Red” Manx prototype using a Kick-Out fiberglass body finished in red and a 1966 Volkswagen Beetle chassis. Power is provided by a 1,600cc Volkswagen flat-four mated to a four-speed manual transaxle, and additional equipment includes a Manx Sidewinder exhaust system, a chrome roll bar and front bumper, black vinyl bucket seats, and a white bikini top. Service in preparation for the sale included replacing the seat backs, seat belts, flywheel, clutch, throw-out bearing, front brakes, and carburetor as well as repainting the exhaust, resealing the push-rod tubes, and changing the oil. This Manx is now offered with its original sales contract, service records, a limited-edition surfboard, and a clean Minnesota title.
The Kick-Out fiberglass body is finished in red and mounted on a 1966 Volkswagen Beetle chassis. Features include a chrome tube-steel front bumper, a front-tilting hood, Kick-Out surfboard badging, a full-width chrome roll bar, and a white bikini top.
White-painted steel wheels wearing VW-branded chrome hubcaps are wrapped in Starfire SF-340 tires measuring 205/75-15 up front and Wild Spirit Sport H/T tires measuring 265/75-15 at the rear. The front brake shoes were replaced in preparation for the sale.
The bucket seats were reupholstered in black vinyl and feature 1964 Beetle seat backs, fore/aft adjustment, and matching seatbelts with Wolfsburg-crest buckles. The battery is equipped with a red vinyl cover and is mounted in a well behind the passenger seat.
The padded three-spoke steering wheel fronts a black crinkle-finish dashboard signed by Bruce Meyers. The sole instrumentation consists of a 100-mph VDO speedometer with an inset fuel-level gauge and a five-digit odometer showing 237 miles which is said to have been driven since completion of the build. True mileage is unknown.
The 1,600cc flat-four breathes through a rebuilt Bocar carburetor and a repainted Manx Sidewinder exhaust system. Service in preparation for the sale included resealing the push-rod tubes and changing the oil.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transaxle. Service in preparation for the sale included replacing the flywheel, clutch, and throw-out bearing.
The body bears a Meyers Manx ID plate and serial number, and the vehicle is titled in Minnesota as a 1966 Volkswagen.
The dune buggy is accompanied by a Meyers Manx Classic surfboard that is numbered #17 of 100 and features a laminated serial-number plate. The board is finished in Just Right Yellow and signed by Bruce Meyers.
