ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL, 1957 PORSCHE 356 SPEEDSTER BUILT BY THE BEST, VINTAGE SPEEDSTER....BUILT ONE YEAR AGO WITHJUST 2550 MILES, FRONT DISC BRAKES, FREEWAY FLYER TRANSMISSION...NEAR FLAWLESS CONDITION!!!
This gorgeous Stone Gray over Saddle 1957 Porsche 356 Speedster replica looks basically brand new and it should with just 2550 miles on the odometer and just built one year ago. It was purchased by a gentleman from Tennessee directly from Vintage Speedster just under a year ago. He special ordered this beauty in an original 1957 Porsche Color and was thrilled with it. He is in the process of building a new home and unfortunately this requires him thinning his collection of toys....sad for him, lucky for the next owner...maybe you!!!!? I recently purchased this Speedster from him and had it transprted in an enclosed trailer to my showroom in the Atlanta, Georgia area. I have owned over a dozen of these awesome little cars and the quality of the Vintage Speedster built cars is really top notch and most people cannot discern this car from a real one. This Speedster was pampered and kept covered in a garage when not in use. You will not be disappointed with the condition or peformance of this beauty!!!!
Body and paint are truly near flawless. I found 3 really tiny rock chips but otherwise this 356 Speedster is really in showroom conditiion. The color is perhaps the nicest I have owned on one of these 356 Replicas. It is called Stone Gray but as you can see in the pics has more green than gray in it. This is one of the facotry original colors used in 1957 which really adds to the look and authnticity. All of the chrome, badging, trim etc. look like new. You will be very impressed by the fit and finish of this one!!
I beleive these cars should be enjoyed top down whenever possible but it is nice to know that the custom Chocolate brown convertible top also looks like new and fits very nicely. The original door window inserts come in a nice storage bag and do not look like they were ever used. When the top is down the boot cover gives the car a very clean look.
Interior is a beautiful saddle color similar to a baseball glove color that really accents the Stone Gray exterior beautifully. The wood grain steering wheel has a rich look with Porsche emblem center cap. Simplistic gauges in the dash all work correctly. Speedometer and odometer are in Kilometers with just 4010 km which is about 2550 miles. Lights and turn signals all function correctly. Matching saddle shifter boot, e-brake cover and dash all in near flawless condition. Rear seating area is padded to match and lets face it is really more of a storage area then a seat. If needed this Speedster also has heat for those cool fall drives through the mountains.A great vintage look modern stereo is mounted under the dash with bluetooth and adapters for ipod/phone. Carpeting is in the dark chocolate brown color and a great set of cocoa mats finish out the interior nicely. Just a beautifully designed interior that looks just like the real deal and in close to new condition.
I have owned quite a few of the Vintage Speedsters so I knew what to expect when this one arrived. However, when I got my first one I have to admit I was a little skeptical about how much fun it would be to drive. Well, after driving the first one we owned I was immediately a fan…after enjoying this beautiful stone gray Speedster on a nice ride today I am still a huge fan!!! I have driven plenty of high horsepower muscle cars, newer Corvettes, BMW’s and Porsches but these little Speedsters have truly won me over!! It has a serious fun factor to it unlike anything else. The dual carbureted 1600 cc motor pulls super strong and will keep up in highway traffic no problem. This particular speedster also has the upgraded 3:88 freeway flyer 4-speed transmission which shifts smoothly and takes this little roadster up to speed quickly with no problem and sounds great doing it! This one also has front disc brakes making stopping a breeze. This little roadster really handles the road well and to me feels like a Porsche 911 on the road. Maintenance is cheap and easy on this car and any foreign car mechanic should be able to do a valve adjustment and tune up every 3-4,000 Miles to keep it running great. The radials are close to new and wheels and hub caps look great.
There is nothing this car needs but you in the drivers seat!!! Undercarriage looks great! Plenty of storage in the front trunk area so go ahead and take that weekend trip to the mountains or the beach…this will be the ride of your life. Make sure you leave a little extra time for all the questions and conversations you will have with folks who stop you. This Speedster Replica is titled as a 1966 Volkswagen making insurance and registration cheap and easy. Check it out and also be sure to listen to the video to hear this baby start up and running.
