Volkswagen dune buggies are without a doubt always head turners. Especially when they look as good as this one. Check out that vibrant orange paint on the frame and chassis. It almost hurts your eyes to look at it, and that's a good thing because you can definitely see it coming; that's what you want with a custom made vehicle right? Chrome and billet accessories cover this machine in all the right places and really make everything stand out. Everything was properly thought through and put together when constructing this machine.
The center console is where you find all the controls. Your headlights, fog lights, ignition switch, and turn signals are all there with the flip of a switch. Flip up the diamond plated box sitting behind the front seats to find a two person padded bench seat complete with seat belts. The machine drives with precision and can turn on a dime. A true joy to drive anywhere you can put it.
The entire vehicle was constructed from a '72 VW Bug with a few custom modifications as well. The 1600cc motor runs fantastic and is mated up to a 4 speed manual transmission with stock gears and stock rear end. The engine and trans coupler have been completely rebuilt as well. Only 600 miles have been put on this vehicle since the rebuild and that's enough to ease your mind when looking for a vehicle in a world where many have been abused and misused. Come check out this one of a kind ride today.
This vehicle is located in our Charlotte, NC showroom. For more information, please call (704) 598-2130 or toll free (866) 542-8392.
Meyer's Manx II, our last run.
I made this for the new owner. I hate to see her go; I love this car and so
does Deedie.. I guess we'll throw a glass in the air to the Manx tonight;
I started this project back in 2008 and have been off and on working on it.
It's has taken almost three years to get this far but, its been worth it.
It has an old Honda 200cc three-wheeler engine that runs like a champ. It
has electric start, or pull start, Have to have key to start. It has really
great independent suspension. The buggy also has the option to have
four-wheel steering. I'm installing a dune buggy rack and pinion steering
system, and a seat belt. It also has a light installed.
Meyers Manx Kickout SS Dune Buggy
This is a video I made from photos taken at the debut of the Kickout SS
during the Carlisle Import Kit Car Nationals May 16th 2009. What a nice
show set up they have at Carlisle. The Kickout is an inspiration to get out
there and create your dreams. " I'll Kickout before you cage me " Thanks to
everyone who made it possible to be there and witness this dune buggy
history. Kickout SS #001.
Meyer's Manx II project build part 2
Chassis is complete for the Myers Manx II project. Every nut and bolt was
removed, cleaned ,threads chased as new or replaced. I'm very happy with
how things are turning out. Now on to the body; first we'll remove two
layers of paint to get down to the original gelcoat then apply the new
finish. I think this is gonna give Deedie's buggy a run for the money.
Hopefully we'll have both cars at the big VW show on the circle in Sebring
