So there you have it.
A very very clean example of a genuine factory built Meyers Manx SR
with a very colorful history and a top quality restoration.
Ask around in the world of Meyers Manx collectors about this car
they will agree with my assessment...it is one of the very best of thebreed available today.
The best part about the design is just how attractive it is to a wide varietyof people.
Guys love it because it's sporty and cool.
Ladies think it's cute.
And children think it's like a gown up Hot Wheels car.
I personally always thought that the Hot Wheels car called the "JackRabbit Special"
that I had back when I was a kid looks a lot like the Manx SR
What do you think?
1969 Meyers Manx SR kit car. Bought used in rough condition which was with a light blue metalflake gel coat body, black gel coat rear canopy, plexiglas rear window, no side windows but with hinged wind wings (that would snag the door if not pulled in to clear), stock vertical hinged doors with original garage door type counter-springs, vinyl targa top, wide VW wheels, 95 hp Corvair engine mated to stock VW tranny, 6 lb. flywheel.
1970 Meyers Manx SR Built for virtually no purpose other than to be seriously tiny and seriously fun, the Meyers Manx SR was built on top of a VW Bug chassis. More or less a glorified dune buggy, this one’s got a special floorpan that sits two inches lower, meaning drivers over six feet tall can get in without a craniotomy.
