In 1964 a gentleman by the name of Bruce Meyers designed a fiberglass body kit car using the VW Beetle chassis known as the Meyers Manx but would be referred to as the “Dune Buggy”. There would be many copycat companies that would build their variant of the dune buggy and would be referred to as a clone.
The entire chassis was dissembled and sandblasted and painted. Tubular suspension in the front end, new front brakes with new hardware, bushings, shocks and rear brake kit. New lights were added with new windshield, horn, GM tilt steering wheel, 15in Weld Racing wheels, full carpet kit, 4spd manual transmission, turn signals (inop), hi-lo beam headlights, oil pressure gauge, voltage gauge, seatbelts, and stereo.
