This Meyers Manx is one of approximately 6,000 examples from the Meyers production run and is powered by an injected 2,331cc flat-four that features CB Performance heads, an Engle camshaft, forged pistons, and much more as detailed below. The car is built on a 1968 Volkswagen chassis and finished in Guards Red over a grey interior. Other features include Gene Berg 4-speed manual transaxle, roll hoops, MegaSquirt engine management, and KYB shocks. Recent service from Doug’s Buggs and Bunnys of Mesa, Arizona included a fuel injection adjustment, fuel pump service, and an oil change. Acquired by the selling dealer about a month ago, this Manx is titled in Arizona as a 2014 Special Construction and is sold with a certificate of authenticity signed by Bruce Meyers.

The fiberglass body is finished in Guards Red, and the seller claims the paint is about 15 years old. The car is built on a modified 1968 Volkswagen Beetle chassis that the seller claims has been reinforced across the bottom and along the sides. The roll hoops are tied into an internal bracing system that extends to the windshield.
