From what I have read this is a Super Shark manufactured in Canada. It is not a Bruce Meyers built vehicle.

Definitely NOT Bruce Meyers.
My "Buggy Book" does not show it.
Who Knows! Many 'glass delights were built from the Meyer's Manx inspiration.
Unfortunately, too many were direct rip-offs of Bruce Meyer's design.

This sure ain't one of them! Very unusual to see doors on a VW based buggy. Only other I'm aware of is Dean Jeffries Kyote II, which was pretty dang cool!

Kinda similar to the "Super SharK"
This is one on the Buggy Archives website:



Compare to this one on CL:





The front headlight section looks like the Super shark, but lot's different, too.
Owner customized?

As the folks above have said - not a Bruce Meyers vehicle.
There was a Corvair powered super-shark for sale a couple blocks from my house at an auction....went for too much money for me.

I would say so.
Look at those door handles.
Those look to be something fairly newer, to me.
I would buy it if it was close.
I love old school buggies.

If you dig deep into the old 'Super Shark' literature - there is a filler piece for under the headlights, that the yellow buggy does not have, but the orange one does. Often missing when they are for sale.
