I can't see the front... - But it is not a Manx. Different Body Style. Thanks for sharing, hope someone picks it up. Good Luck!

I agree; no Manx in there.

So many cheap imitations of the manx. Once saw a manx "toad". Now that was an interesting ride.

It's actually a "Tow'd," as that's how Bruce meyers got it to races. They're more rare than Manx buggies, I believe. I'll have to refer to a recent copy of the Meyers Manx Club registry for real figures, but I know they have accounted for less than 500 true Manx buggies; a fraction of the approximate 5200 bodies they made between 1964 and 1972.
