BaT Auction: 1973 Meyers Manx SR-2 at No Reserve
This 1973 Meyers Manx SR-2 was assembled from a kit manufactured by Karma Coachworks of Costa Mesa, California and is equipped with optional scissor-action doors. It is built on 1967 Volkswagen Beetle and receives power from a mildly-tuned 1500cc flat-four paired with a 4-speed manual gearbox. Only a handful of miles have been added by the seller since he acquired the car two years ago, and it has previously been registered in Arizona, Washington State, and California, where it received an SB100 sequence number. This Manx is now being offered at no reserve with receipts from the most recent service, a copy of the assembly manual, and a clear Michigan title in the seller’s name.
Styling for the SR-2 was conceived by Bruce Meyers and recent Art Center College of Design graduate Stewart Reed. It utilizes a total of 13 individual fiberglass pieces, and like the original Manx, it is based on a shortened Beetle chassis. The front section of the body folds forward to access a storage compartment, and the open top cabin features a stow-able vinyl top.
This example comes fitted with a set of scissor-action doors and removable side windows. A spider crack about 1.5″ long is present on the front compartment cover. 4-lug slotted aluminum wheels measure 13″ in diameter up front and 14″ out back.
Bucket seats are upholstered in matching black and yellow vinyl, and the interior also features a T-hande shifter, yellow-lettered gauges, and a wood-rimmed Grant steering. 4k miles are shown on the odometer.
The rear-mounted 1500cc flat-four utilizes a larger carburetor, aftermarket camshaft, and a quad-tip Empi exhaust. A service in 2016 consisted of an oil change, carburetor tuning, valve adjustment, and installation of two new fuel filters.
A registration sticker from Arizona can be seen above along with the Karma body tag, and this buggy received a California BAR SB100 sequence number in 2005 under previous ownership.
