1964 Volkswagen Other

This listing is for a rare Manx style dune buggy. I was told by the previous owner that the engine is a 1640cc. This vehicle also comes with a tan Vinyl Top & a well made tow bar - it tows nicely. My understanding is that this Dune Buggy is called a "Thunder Bug" and it was made by "Manx House" which was later known as "Bugformance" in Sunnyvale CA. Here is some info on the Thunder Bug:Thunder Bug was Custom Built mold made by Clay Diekmann and Tony Vierra of Manx House (a dune buggy shop) in 1968 in Sunnyvale California. The shop later became known as Bugformance. There were only 50-70 of these bodies produced. They were handlaid fiberglass construction with chopper gun re-inforcements. They were designed to be the same dimensions as it's cousin the Manx. Tailbox was raised for more clearance. Hood appears designed for more tank clearance. Dash and hood thicker than most manx kits. Interior surfaces were textured . Later versions were molded with tube under fender for wiring harness. Please do your due diligence and ask all questions before making a commitment to purchase this vehicle. If you are local you are welcome to contact me to setup an appointment to view this vehicle in person.
