Meyers Manxter Street Buggy
Back in the 1960's a fellow by the name of Bruce Meyers developed a
legendary vehicle...the Meyers Manx.
This was the iconographic Dune Buggy that has become permanently etched
into the pages of automotive history.
Many copies came and went, but Meyers was the originator and the
originals have become hot collectibles.
Back a few years ago Bruce came up with a modern Buggy body, called the
Manxter, and they are once again
the cream of the crop of the modern Buggy bodies...and the one in these
photos is a pretty awesome example.
The build on this was started in 2004 and finished just this year...it
was a long process for it's owner
but the results are self evident...it is stunning.
Some of the real unique attributes of this example are the interior and
the custom air brush work
on the roof and dash and other areas. Its a great look...very "beachy"
and very well done.
The car is really fresh in all regards and has been driven very few
miles since completion.
The sweet details are what really make it stand out...check out the
Mirrors have been given the woodgrain treatment.
Roof is a work of art to be sure.
The interior is really gorgeous and more custom faux woodgrain work on
the dashboard is wonderful.
Full padded roll cage, custom two tone upholstered seats and
panels...full fitted carpet and everything like brand new.
This is the 2+2 model that has the back seats...not a huge amount of
room, but the kids sure wont mind!
Front seats are adjustable of course to provide a little more leg room
for the rear passengers.
Really nice color choice in my opinion, it plays off the red paintwork
In these photos a bit of material is taped over the edge to keep the
body mark free...the owner has taken wonderful care of it
and it has truly been a labor of love for him. Unfortunately the funds
are needed and it is now up for sale.
Full instrumentation, nice steering wheel, custom shifter and
pedals...check out the chrome
brake handle and the locking glove box with more amazing artistry
Bruce Meyers, the man himself, has signed the rear fender in approval
of the builders creation.
Engine is a pro built Scat 1776cc unit that by itself was $4500...the
trans and brakes are all new, the interior is top end
the chassis is clean and nicely finished, really no stone left
unturned. The builder estimates that he has
about $32,000 invested in it, not counting a penny for his time and
Wheels and tires are excellent
Front hood pops up to reveal the custom fuel tank with more amazing
Really neat touch!
Wiring is all top nitch, everything super clean and well worked out.
Top off for open air motoring !
In closing this car is really stunning. It is a fully new build, done
with no holds barred,
a unique style applied and many unique touches that will make it stand
out in any crowd.
To build a turn key car built to this level by any of the pro shops
would easily cost over $40k.
This on is priced VERY realistically at
Car is located in
