Description of 1967 Other Makes

This 1967 Volkswagen-based buggy is believed to be a genuine Meyers Manx, though this has not been verified. The car has been measured a verified Manx, and found to be consistent with a known verified car, though can not be confirmed. Power comes from a 1600cc Volkswagen flat-four mated to a four-speed transaxle. There has been fairly extensive recent work, including a new carburetor, new exhaust, front disc brake conversion, new lights, and new wiring.
This buggy is finished in copper-colored metalflake paint and is fitted with a set of Western Racing slotted alloy wheels. The rear tires are grooved DOT-legal items. The lights are new, and several chrome and billet dress-up pieces are fitted, including chrome lighting housings, a tubular chrome front bumper, and billet mirrors. A crack is present in the lower corner of the windscreen.
The Manx badge was removed for a photo, which shows that the raised Manx shield is present in the fiberglass on this buggy. The battery and tire humps under the rear seat match the verified car, and the fenders are dimensionally the same as well. Holes are present for the original data tag, though the tag itself is now missing.
The interior is equipped with working stock Beetle instrumentation, and all of the lights, the wipers, and the horn are working as well. An early-1990s vintage Volkswagen radio is mounted in the passenger side of the dash, though it is not wired in. The throttle pedal is a roller, and the brake and clutch are conventional floor-hinged metal pedals.
The seats are trimmed in white vinyl front and rear with matching patterns. No seatbelts are fitted, and the 100 indicated miles are from when the car was assembled.
Power comes from a single-carb 1600cc Volkswagen beetle flat-four mated to a four-speed manual transaxle.
Photos of the underside are provided. Numerous dents and marks are visible in the pan, showing that this buggy has likely been used off road.
My standard disclaimer/mantra for any car regardless of service or price: The car is sold with no warranty. You are buying a used car. Eventually every car will break, if you find one that doesn't please let me know. I do my ABSOLUTE BEST to describe accurately the shape of the car, but keep in mind it is impossible to discuss every detail of a car for better or worse. I am not a dealer, just a guy who loves buggies (among other cars) and hope to pass along my passion and fervor for these cars. That said if ever you encounter an issue I do my best to provide advice, direction or even parts if I have them. Please understand that it is a used car and will have minor signs of use despite its service and restoration. That means please do not expect a showroom brand new car. Please adjust your expectation level to that of a used buggy car that however presents well. Please only bid if you intend to buy. If you would like to have an Ebay 3rd party mechanic service check out the car I MORE than welcome it. Please have the car checked out before bidding and not after, if you intend to use that service. And please, if you would like to utilize this service, contact me with more than a couple days left in the auction so we can arrange schedules. Please check your local laws and registration procedures before buying. Buying over the internet can be scary sometimes! I get it, because I am an enthusiast too!! For that very reason, I am more than happy to answer every and any question you may so you know 100% what you are buying. But, please ask any and all questions ahead of purchase! It is impossible to list every pro and con of a car, I am not an inspection service, it is your responsibility as a buyer to do your due diligence and inspect the car. All sales are final, you are buying as-is, the sky is blue, etc, etc. Sorry to have to give the boring speech!
