1963 Manx Style Buggy - Many Upgrades   Price: $7750
NOTE: Decals are easily removable if desired, I just couldn’t bring myself to do it.

Meet Chester. Chester is a champion. Chester will take you on endless adventures. Chester probably won’t get you laid, but kids love him. Chester could be your new best friend if you just let him.

For your consideration is a Manx style (not an actual Meyers Manx) fiberglass dune buggy kit car built using a body from the 70’s and a shortened 1963 VW beetle pan. The body most closely resembles an “El Lobo” buggy amongst the known manufacturers, however is one of only 3 copies in reported existence with this exact body mold. The fiberglass is thick and strong and has some stunning design features including the inset hood and clean sweeping lines. I purchased this vehicle for a very specific purpose – to build it up into a road warrior, compete in an epic road rally, have a hell of a time, and win. I have completed what I set out to do and am ready to pass him on to the next adventurer out there. In August 2017 Chester competed in the 3rd official “Lemons Rally” – brought to you by the same crazy folks who created the “24 Hours of Lemons” racing series where $500 cars compete in an endurance race on actual race tracks. The “Hell on Wheels: Monterey Car Weeeeak Rally” began in Monterey, CA and over 4 days took Chester, my brother-in-law, myself, and several hundred pounds of gear up the California, Oregon, and Washington coasts – across the 5am ferry to Seattle and up to within 2 miles of the Canadian border – back south to Bend, OR just days before the apocalyptic solar eclipse – all the way to where it all began in Monterey, CA to participate in a Haggerty Monterey Car Week show. For his valiant efforts, outstanding performance, and determination Chester was awarded the most honorable prize of “First in Points” amongst a sea of over 50 other worthy competitors. After achieving worldwide acclaim and recognition Chester was asked to be displayed at the 2017 Sacramento International Car Exposition, where he brought joy to the faces of countless car enthusiasts.

The asking price for this well-sorted machine is a very reasonable $7,750. There is significantly more money than that into the car, but isn’t that always the case? May consider a trade for a Volkswagen bus, especially a Westfalia or Riviera, but not interested in a bug, ghia, squareback, etc.
