Porsche 550 RS Spyder Recreation (ALL PORSCHE!) - Priced to Sell
What sets this 1955 Porsche 550 RS Spyder recreation apart from the rest of the kit cars on the market is the heart from a 1961 Porsche 356B. From our research, it's a 1600 S Type 616/2 T5 engine that we believe was a carryover in 1961 and was not actually installed in a vehicle from the factory. According to what we found on the serial number it that it was only 20 from the last of these engines produced in 1961.
She was built in 1996 with all Porsche components to be as close to an original Wendler built 550 RS Spyder as possible. This 550 was built so well that she was displayed in the Blackhawk Museum in Danville, California for most of her life, and has only around 600 miles on the road.
She is Porsche through and through, from the Porsche 356B (1600 S Type 616/2 T5) power plant to the suspension, and even down to the Wicker-Bill. The frame was custom built to mimic Wendler’s race-winning design, and she proudly displays the Karosserie Wendler Reutlingen badge on her lower fenders.
