The Meyers Manx was the original dune buggy for the unwashed masses, but the roofless, doorless, and dry-weather-only setup isn’t for everyone (even the unwashed, who probably appreciated an occasional rain shower). A few years later Bruce Meyers designed the SR (short for Street Roadster) which added a small top and scissors doors to the basic Beetle chassis with fiberglass tub. Today’s SR has some cool square headlights (most early SR’s had round lights, but the later 1978+ hood used rectangular sealed-beams) and is mostly complete, but will need some mechanical work. Find this 1973 Volkswagen Meyers Manx SR bidding for $15,100 with 2 days to go in Sadieville, KY via ebay motors.
From the seller:
1973 Volkswagen kit car. Manx SR. Shows 17162 on odometer believe it is higher. yellow exterior (needs repaint). Car is all there. No parts missing. car is in need of a refurbish tires are old, brakes need work, needs carpet. the engine is in good shape. I believe this is one of the last produced due to the square headlights. Fiberglass seems to be in excellent condition for its age. This is a very fun car to drive. Door tops and center roof is removable. You will not be able to drive this home. Make sure you bring transport.
