They came out in the 70s. I've seen a few around. Its a dune buggy, basically like the popular Manx Buggies

It might of been to work around the Manx trademark/patent. They were pretty aggressive in stopping copycat designs

Way too much $$$ for an unsuccessful kit car. It's a VW.

We had one running around the Rogue valley for years. It was painted red, white, and blue.

Meyers Manx was squeezed out of business in the 70's due to the huge amount of copycat builders. He has since reopened his shop and offers both the shortened bodies and a new 2+2 that fits on a stock pan.
The VW chassis has lent itself to an untold number of kits, including many on road cars like the Bradley GT.
The samba has a kit car identifier section. If you stroll through it you will see a huge number different fiberglass bodies. All fitting upgrades for what is, in my opinion, one of the best engendered vehicles ever made.
