Auction Block: 1965 Meyers Manxter 2+2

Feb 26, 2018

Category: Rides

In the late ’50s and early ’60s, American beach culture was all the rage. From movies, to fashion, and even to cars – people couldn’t get enough of the west coast lifestyle. And one of the most iconic things to come out of that time – invented by a surfer, no less – was the Meyers Manx dune buggy. And now a nearly immaculate example is headed to auction.

A Manxter 2+2 (a 4-seater configuration), this beach cruiser has recently gone through a comprehensive ground-up restoration by actual Manx specialists out of San Francisco. And while they put it back to practically brand-new working condition, they also made some improvements – including the addition of custom Porsche center-cap wheels, a leather-wrapped roll cage, and a new green and tan paint job borrowed from none other than the classic FJ40 Land Cruiser. It also features a fiberglass hard top, custom dash gauges, and a BUG PowerPak. Get behind the wheel of this classic American dune buggy by purchasing it at RM Sotheby’s upcoming Amelia Island auction on March 10th for an estimated $40,000-$50,000.

Purchase: $40,000+
