I am the 2nd owner of this Manx. Purchased in 1997. Built by Roger Smith of PEPPERTREE AUTO. in Costa Mesa, CA. in 1965. Have done ALL work/maintenance since Manx was built, as the owner was a customer of our auto repair business. According to "original owner" it is believed to be #5 out of the "original" pan-Manx mold. Has MANY "original" Manx accessories of that time....

Additional Details of the Original Meyers Manx
•The dashboard of the 1st floorpan model is made of ABS plastic surrounded by a steel frame inside the fiberglass hood.------YES
•The hood has a small bump on it's nose, measuring 2" wide by 2 1/2" tall. This bump wore a silver and black sticker on the first 150 kits or so into early 1967, at which time the large black and silver plastic emblem covered this bump.------YES Meyers Manx never had any other bumps, airscoops, ridges, furrows, or anything else on their hoods.------YES
•Two tubular steel struts may be in place to stiffen the lower edge of the body at either side of the license plate. This continued to the end of 1971.------YES
•The 1st floorpan model, produced into the 70's, had stiffening tubes glassed under the fenders from the pedal bulkhead to the engine bulkhead.------YES
Has one of Bruce Meyers "handmade" windshields made from shower door frame material.------YES

Hi Bill, thanks for the write up, it is good to see such an early variant of the Meyers Manx still going strong.

Do you have the hand formed windscreen ?
