A hand-built recreation of one of Porsche’s most iconic vehicles, this 1957 Speedster replica is based on a 1969 Volkswagen Beetle and powered by a dual-carbureted 1,800cc air-cooled engine. Recently serviced with a valve adjustment and fresh fluids, this Speedster replica is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Georgia.
The Speedster-style bodywork is constructed of fiberglass and finished in silver paint with a black convertible top. Accessories include a red tonneau cover, dual chrome mirrors, gold Speedster badging, yellow-tinted headlamps with lens guards, a chrome luggage rack, dual chrome tailpipes, and VW “Wide 5” wheels with chrome Porsche-crested hubcaps. Additional images are provided in the gallery.
The cabin is lined with black carpeting and appointed with red vinyl upholstery covering the seats and door panels as well as the shifter and handbrake boots. Accessories include Speedster-style bucket seats with lap belts, a three-spoke banjo-style steering wheel, and a newly installed set of VDO classic gauges.
Power comes from a 1,800cc dual-port VW engine with dual carburetors and a 4-speed manual transmission driving the rear wheels. Stopping power comes from disc brakes at the front and drums in the rear. The seller states recent service includes valve adjustments, carburetor tuning, and new oil and gearbox fluid.
This sale will include a clean title.
