Bruce Meyers is quoted as saying, “I'm an artist and I wanted to bring a sense of movement and gesture to the Manx. Dune buggies have a message, fun. They’re playful to drive and should look like it. Nothing did at the time.” Sure enough, using a basic Volkswagen chassis and engine, this radical design concept proved an instant hit both in the US and then, later, in Europe.

This wonderful example of a Manx Evocation looks superb in striking orange coachwork over a recently re-trimmed black interior, it is a (useful) four-seater with comfortable bucket seats to the front. Running and driving very well with a recent MoT test certificate, this Manx evocation looks outstanding and sits proudly on a set of replica polished Porsche Fuchs wheels.

Fitted with a 1300cc engine bored out 1650cc offering spirited driving between the dunes and a good turn of power. This buggy has been serviced recently and is offered with a number of old MoT test certificates and a current V5C registration document. These are generating much interest at the moment so get ahead of the crowd.
