ABSOLUTELY AWESOME, 1957 356 SPEEDSTER REPLICA FROM VINTAGE SPEEDSTER WITH JUST UNDER 2550 MILES, LOADED WITH OUTLAW FEATURES, BUILT 1915 CC, 4 WHEEL DISC BRAKES, SPORT SIDEWINDER EXHAUST AND MORE….READY TO SHOW AND GO!!!
This Seal Gray Metallic Beauty was hand built by Vintage Speedster in 2013 for a guy in Florida who wanted a cool, classic 356 Replica to match his Seal Gray Porsche Boxster. He enjoyed the Speedster for 3 years and then sold it to a gentleman from London who had a home in Florida also. This owner only drove the car 900 miles in the 3 years he owned it and was selling his Florida home and asked the original owner if he would help him locate a new home for the Speedster. I was lucky enough to buy this car and had it transported to me via an enclosed trailer. It is in exceptional condition and I am now and making it available to the next lucky owner…maybe you?!!
As you will see in the pics below, the paint and body are truly near flawless and the Seal Gray Metallic color really suits the Outlaw styling features on this 356 Speedster Replica. The quality of build from Vintage Speedster has always been top notch and this car is exactly that. Body panel fit and paint quality is awesome. Most people who will see this car will have no idea it is a replica! Other than a few very tiny paint chips the body is truly near flawless. The Carrera GT mirror mounted on the fender, the Black painted wide 5 wheels and the Sidewinder Sport Exhaust set this one apart. Slight oxidation on the drivers side door handle. Nice set of mesh rock guards on the headlights and authentic badging. I have blocked some of the manufacturer badges in the pics as required by some advertising companies. Of course I recommend you enjoy this speedster with the top down as often as possible but it also does have a like new, black convertible top with side window inserts. A matching black boot cover installs when the top is down. I think the photo tour below will show you jut how nice this Speedster is:
Complimenting the gorgeous Seal Gray Exterior is an equally impressive black interior. The interior is also essentially flawless. Simplistic sophistication is the best way to describe the layout of the interior. Very comfortable and supportive authentic bucket seats look close to brand new. Race style seat belts for driver and passenger. Door panels were nicely upgraded to include custom closing document pouches. Rear seat shelf pad to match. Carpeting looks great and a nice set of cocoa mats finish it out nicely. Dash is neatly laid out with all the gauges you need to monitor the performance of this 1915 cc air cooled dual carb engine. All of the lights, turn signals and gauges work correctly. Fire extinguisher neatly mounted under dash. Beautiful Wood grain steering wheel with mfg. emblem adds to the authenticity. Check it out:
This is the 19th Vintage Speedster I have owned so I knew what to expect when it arrived. However, I have to admit I was a little skeptical about how much fun these would be to drive when I bought my first one. Well, after driving that first one I was immediately a huge fan! This one has just over 2500 miles on the 1915cc dual carb air cooled engine which was upgraded at the time of the build with an Engle 110 Cam, upgraded Empi/Weber carbs, Chromalloy push rods, and the A-1 sidewinder exhaust. These upgrade help push the horsepower on this Speedster to an estimated 110-120 horsepower which makes it a whole lot of fun!! It has received a recent oil change and valve adjustment and is ready to driven and enjoyed. This motor is mated to the 3.88 Freeway flyer transmission making it highway friendly. The A-1 Side winder exhaust also has a bullet style muffler that produces a really aggressive tone under acceleration and a nice tone on idle. This Speedster handles exceptionally well and has the upgraded wide 5 wheels wrapped in great set of Pirelli rubber. Braking is a breeze thanks to the upgraded 4 wheel disc brakes. This one also has the external oil color which is a smart addition. With just 2550 miles on it this baby has just basically been broken in and is begging to be driven. Of course the undercarriage is rock solid and looks great. Plenty of storage in the carpeted front trunk area so pack a weekend bag and enjoy a fun filled driving experience through the mountains or around the beach but leave plenty of extra time to talk to everyone who will want to know all about this sweet car. There is nothing this 356 Speedster replica needs but you in the drivers seat.
