Corvair Powered: 1970 Meyers Manx SR2

The Meyers Manx was the original dune buggy for the everyman, but the roofless, doorless, and dry-weather-only setup isn't for everyone, so Bruce Meyers designed the SR2 version which added a small top and gullwing scissors doors. The builder of this example ditched the typical VW flat-4 and instead went for a quad-carbed Corvair flat-6 for ultimate awesome. Find this 1970 Meyers Manx SR2 here on ebay bidding for $10,300 reserve-not-met with 2 days to go.

See a better way to drive something with Gullwing doors?


  1. Cool car. those are scissor doors, not gull-wing.

    1. Ahh -- yes, scissors/lambo doors, NOT gullwing/SL. Whoops! I'll update the post -Vince

    2. Based on lineage, shouldn't Lambo doors be called Manx SR2 doors?

    1. Remember when autopart stores had large bins full of Cherry Bomb mufflers? So cool.
