Do you have this special Citroën ever seen on the road? Maybe in ivory white, or red, or canary yellow? In addition to Black, Silver Gray, British Racing Green and Blue, these were the colors on offer. 

Polykitcars described the Manx as follows: “The Manx has a practical styling and is easy to build. The donor is one Citroën 2 CV. The body is mounted on the donor's chassis and uses the same holes as those used to secure the body of the 2 CV. ” 

Sportier

“The Manx accelerates and drives much better than its donor, is more economical due to its better aerodynamics and looks much sportier. With a well-treated chassis you are free from rust problems for a long time. The body therefore consists entirely of polyester and is therefore not subject to rust. ”
