Although the best way to enjoy this beautiful Speedster is with the top down it is also nice to know that if needed this Speedster also has a full convertible top that is easy to put up or down as well as side windows that insert easily. When enjoying this beauty with the top down you have 2 different boot/tonneau cover options. You can simply snap the boot cover over the convertible top area, or place the tonneau cover on which can cover 3/4 of the cabin while you are driving alone and can be zipped up to cover the entire cab area when you leave the car to keep the interior protected.

The Aquamarine exterior is complimented by a beautiful Wine Red interior. This was an original Porsche color combination and it is truly stunning. Seats are in near perfect condition showing practically no wear. Beautiful Nardi Wood Steering wheel with Porsche Crest center. Simplistic gauges in the dash all work correctly. Lights and turn signals all function correctly. Matching wine red shifter boot, e-brake cover and dash all in near flawless condition. Nice set of black cocoa mats. 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. Just a beautifully designed interior that looks just like the real deal and in close to new condition…have a look
This is the 4th Vintage Speedster we have owned so we knew what to expect when this one arrived. However, when we got our 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 Aquamarine 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. This Speedster has just under 2700 miles on the 1600 cc, single carb air cooled Volkswagen motor and the engine compartment is clean as a whistle. While we have had a few with the larger 1915 cc motors and dual carbs I have to say I feel little to no difference in the performance of this one compared to those. In fact the previous owner confirmed that he chose this set up because his previous one had the dual carb larger motor and it seemed to need contestant tuning and he felt this set up would be perfect for the kind of sunny day driving he planned on using it for…I agree with him and think the next owner will be thrilled with the current set up. The car had just been serviced, tuned and fresh oil change so the new owner should not need to do a thing. This particular speedster also has the upgraded 3:88 4-speed transmission 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. When the previous owner had this one built he also had them lower about 1″ for better handling. 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 wheels look great with the chrome baby moon hub caps and tires have 90% tread. 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. Check it out and also be sure to listen to the video to hear this baby start up and running
Hopefully you agree that this is just an awesome looking little Speedster Replica. It is in amazing condition and is an absolute blast to drive. People will be stopping you left and right asking you what it is or wondering if it is an original….that will be up to you to tell them…believe me it is hard to tell! This is truly a sun in your face, wind in your hair, super fun roadster that you can drive and enjoy and take to the shows and cruise-ins. It is registered as a 1965 Volkswagen which is what the floor pan came from. It has a valid California title that will be transferred to the next lucky owner. Don’t let this one pass you by… Don’t you deserve it???
