Available for auction is this 1957 Porsche 356A Speedster replica finished in Silver over a red vinyl interior. Originally built by Vintage Speedsters of California in 2014, this high-quality recreation spent time in Colorado while under the care of its original owner. It was acquired by the seller in 2022 from a dealer out of Missouri and features a 1915cc flat-four-cylinder engine paired with a 4-speed manual transmission as well as a Tri-mil exhaust system, 17” Cip1 wheels, a full tonneau cover, Coco floor mats, and more. This road-registered Speedster replica is now being offered for auction by its seller out of California.
The handcrafted fiberglass bodywork sits atop a Volkswagen chassis which is mated to a custom-built steel subframe. The car is finished in Silver with a black cloth top, matching tonneau cover, and side curtains. The seller notes a small imperfection near the front passenger side wheel well, and a few small rock chips at the lower front end. Additional images can be found in the gallery. Equipment includes dual side mirrors, front fog lights, mesh headlight guards, painted bumpers with chrome trim, dual exhaust outlets, and a set of 17” Cip 1 vintage wheels dressed in Bravuris tires from 2020.
The cabin features red vinyl upholstery on the seats, door cards, dashboard, and a handbrake boot with contrasting black carpets lining the floors. Amenities include a wood-rimmed steering wheel with a Porsche crested horn button and Coco floor mats. The seller confirms that all gauges and accessories remain functional and some wear is present on the vinyl upholstery.
Power comes from a 1915cc flat-four-cylinder engine which has been upgraded with an Engle W110 cam, a Tri-mil exhaust system, and an 8 Dowel crank and flywheel. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 4-speed manual transmission and stopping is handled by front disc and rear drum brakes. The seller notes that an oil and filter service was performed immediately after they acquired the car, a new battery was recently installed, and there are no other outstanding service items at this time.
This sale will include a clean title and California registration.
The seller would like you to know: "Full tonneau and half tonneau covers, plus side windows are almost never used. The car looks great, sounds great, and drives great."
