‘As with most aspects of the VW scene, there is a significant amount of speculation and debate relating to models. There will always be the originals and the imitators, and there will always be some models which are more sought after than others. In the Beach Buggy world, one name reigns supreme – the Meyers Manx…. Manx Buggies are highly sought after and can command frightening prices. In the UK however, the Buggy that gets all Buggy boffs a bit hot under the collar is the short wheel base Mk 1 GP. In looks, this is very close relative to the Manx Buggy and it’s certainly the most attractive and well-proportioned of all UK built buggies.’
This VW Beach buggy in itself is very rare as many bodies and wheel arches have been cut, extended, modified or damaged. This wonderful example is presented in very good condition and drives wonderfully. This little Buggy is a seriously collectable piece of VW history. Finally, as anyone who has been lucky enough to have driven one can testify, they are a complete hoot to drive.
