1969 – VW Dune Buggy.

We love the Meyer Manx LM1 since alway, but they are quite expensive today and the other buggy brand was almost of the time ..mmh.. uggly.

But this one is pretty nice and we have never seen one like that before.

Les Manx on toujours été trés cher mais c’est devenu un vrai luxe.

Based on Vw beetle like the Manx, the 1500 is a pretty torquey motor which can be much improved and it’s a good thing because this buggy look more street killer than sand blaster.

J’avais le même moteur sur mon Combi de 68 et ça fonctionnait plutôt bien, j’imagine que sur ce poids plume cela doit être convainquant et de plus les options pour améliorer les performances sur cette base sont légion, sans parler d’un possible swap douteux sur base de type4  2 litres.

We swap the Cobra seat for some old school short black leather bucket seat and keep the Wolfrace wheels or sell them actually  (they are pretty rare) 

But change these horrible rear-view mirror for some chromes obus

And keep the Cucaracha Italian trumpets. 🙂
