In 1964 a gentleman by the name of Bruce Meyers designed a fiberglass body kit car using the VW Beetle chassis known as the Meyers Manx but would be referred to as the “Dune Buggy”. There would be many copycat companies that would build their variant of the dune buggy and would be referred to as a clone. The Imp by EMPI an acronym for Engineered Motor Products, Inc, the company founded in Riverside California – the proving ground for Dune Buggies. Many of these were modified and they all took on their own design based from the owner and level of thickness of their wallet.

Offered here is on incredible 1969 Empi Imp Dune Buggy in a stunning 15 stage paint job of Candy Magenta from the House of Kolor – 5 coats of base, 5 coats of Candy Magenta and 5 coats of clear coat. Over 50hours were spent just on the paint job and just under $12k in paint and labor. This isn't your backyard built Dune Buggy using some left over parts, it is a professional build from top to bottom.
