1965 Meyers Manxter 2+2 Dune Buggy

1965 Meyers Manxter 2+2 Dune Buggy

Designed and built by an avid surfer and boat builder who wanted to upset the existing buggies of the time, Bruce Meyers’s Manx dune buggy has been a phenomenon ever since it was released in 1964. If the profile looks like a VW Beetle to you, you’re not that far off, because it started with a floor-pan and powertrain before being transformed into the dream buggy and desert racer you see here. This particular example of Meyers’s creative vision is a 1965 Meyers Manxter 2+2 that was restored from the ground up in San Francisco and finished with a tan leather interior and an olive green paint job borrowed from Toyota’s FJ40 Land Cruiser. If you want to own an original, this is also Meyers Manx registry authenticated as “#0461.” This 1965 Meyers Manxter 2+2 will roll across the block with no reserve on Saturday, March 10 as part of the RM Sotheby’s Amelia Island concours.
