Manx SR on Craigslist. I think it is SUPER RARE

Ok as always I get a kick out of sellers who use RARE to describe a kit car or buggy. I get it only a few 100 were made, but that amounts to just about nothing in the kit car biz. In fact for a few 100 of any body to be built is a big deal in my eyes.

This seller is pretty convinced rare in caps is going to sell this car…

I have never been a fan of the SR and I can admit I do not know how desirable they really are, but $5900 for a snow covered example with no motor? What do you all think?

    I miss mine. And that car isn’t too far from me. But the visible roll cage and being left outside in the weather is about $2K too much for the asking price. Parts are non-existent with the exception of a guy that has most of the molds and will cast a part as needed. But, it is a valid Manx item and I still can’t fathom the “value” of a Manx, regardless of a traditional buggy or one of these. Mine sold for a little more than the asking price of this one, and it was a complete restoration. Took a bath on that car. But it was fun while it lasted!
