Created as an homage to one of Porsche’s most legendary historic race cars, this 550 Spyder Replica is reported to have been built by a Sports Car Club of America race car driver in Florida. This custom example comes finished in silver or red leather upholstery and features a 1,966cc Volkswagen flat-four engine, dual Weber carburetors, a flame-thrower ignition system, dual exhaust outlets, and slotted wide 5-lug steel wheels. Reportedly driven just under 300 miles since the build, this Spyder replica is now being offered for auction by its seller out of New York.
This replica is finished in silver and features an iconic 550 Spyder silhouette with a red tonneau cover. Exterior details include a central hood-mounted fuel filler, an aerodynamic driver-side mirror, twin engine grilles, leather bonnet straps, and dual exhaust outlets. It rides on 15” slotted wide 5-lug steel wheels dressed in Vredestein Sprint Classic tires from 2022. Some paint imperfections are notes including scratches on the deck lid. Additional images are provided in the gallery.
The cockpit features red leather-trimmed bucket seats, a 3-spoke steering wheel, lap belts, and 356-style instrumentation with green markings and chrome bezels. All gauges, electronics, and accessories are reported to be working properly.
This 550 Spyder replica is based on a 1967 Volkswagen tubular chassis/frame and is equipped with an air-cooled 1,966cc flat-four Volkswagen engine with dual Weber 36mm ICT carburetors. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 4-speed manual transmission. Additional features include a flame-thrower ignition system, a hydraulic clutch master & slave cylinder kit, a cable shifter, axle boots, and KYB shocks. Stopping power is provided by front disc brakes and rear drums. No outstanding maintenance items have been reported.
This sale will include a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “This 550 Spyder Replica was previously built and owned by an SCCA racecar driver in Florida. It shows the correct mileage in kilometers, and runs, drives, stops, and shifts as it should!”
