1974 Volkswagen Other Dune Buggy Manx Style Additional Info:

Fully Restored to original street legal condition. Everything works i.e... Lights, brakes, wipers, etc. Original owner was a musician and painted it to match his 1969 Fender Swinger/Arrow.Always garage kept inexcellent condition when I got it. Looks like it came out of a time capsule, this is an actual old school buggy. Less than 25,000 original miles.

Paint is a Chameleon Red Metallic Flake withmatching Marine Grade custom Interior. Added Fully Adjustable 5 point F-1 Racing Seats recessed8”with pull of steering system, so someone 6’ plus can drive it. I’m 6’ 268lbs and fit fine. Adjustable rear suspension so can be raised up to 6"easily. Stereo is Remote Control, with Removable Speakers so you can set on hood, Windshield,orRear Deckwhen at beach and blast your tunes! Is set up to add exterior speakers as well.

I work in Oilfield Salesanduseitonce a week,about160 mile round trip 8 monthsa year to Schmooze customersat beach or Golf inHouston and Galveston.

Previous owner provided car History and Specs, appears to be correct from what I found online before buying it. This buggy is perfect when you want to show off with plenty of “get up and go”, a realblast to drive. I pulled an 8’ trailer atChristmas dressed like Santa for Caroling, local parades and car shows. Has rear seat belts so my kids could ride.

This is an "Unmolested First Run “Road Runner with T-Bird Hood” AKA: t-bird, and Dune Runner. Dune Buggy Enterprises first run bodies were Originally named “Road Runner” & “T-Bird”. Legal actions by (Chrysler and Warner Brothers) later models were renamed “Dune Runner”. This is the same company that made the “Wonder Bug” for the 1970’s TV Series, and styled after "Speed Buggy"


I did my best to accurately describe the vehicle to the best of my abilities Thanks and good luck! I'm always open to offers, but no matter what we agree to, it has to be sold through eBay since it is listed hereso we are both have records of the sale, Description, and Record of communications.

CONS: It has 2 barely noticeablescratches the size of apen capto clear coat under front bumper. The Windshield wipers work, but could use new wiper arms and blades. I think it looks better without them, but did not want to change from original. You could cap them and run without like I did using RainX.

Admittedly, I’m not a VW guy, I can’t tell you much about it outside of what I was told and what I have done. I had interior replaced in December. All work done by Professionals. It was apprisedlast year to insureat $21,347.13, and I’monly asking around half ofthat.

Again, to sum it up: This is a “Turn Key” and Go ride. The day you get it, you can go cruising! Not wait to repair… I spent $4,500 on interior in December! You get a lot of extras with this car unlike others listed on Here for same and even more!
