Now available for auction is this 1957 Porsche 356A Speedster Replica finished in the iconic color of Irish Green over a tan interior. Created by Vintage Speedsters of California, prior to the company being moved to Arizona in 2018, this Speedster is built upon the chassis of a 1968 Volkswagen and comes equipped with an upgraded electronic ignition system, adjustable front and rear suspension, a 4-speed Freeway Flyer transmission, and dual Kadron carburetors. Not to be overlooked, this replica is now being offered by its seller in California with under 7k miles driven since the completion of the build.
This handcrafted fiberglass body is finished in the coveted Porsche color of Irish Green. A tan convertible top is equipped along with a matching tonneau cover and side curtains. Custom “CruZin Windows” are also included which can be installed to reduce wind disturbance and provide a more comfortable top-down driving experience. Other details include chrome brightwork and Porsche Speedster emblems, dual Aero style mirrors with convex lens, an LED third brake light mounted to the top of the license plate, grill style headlight stone guards, and chrome wheels with baby moon hubcaps.
Inside, the cabin has been upholstered in tan leather and sand beige carpeting. Additional features include Coco floormats, an ivory shift knob, and a genuine Nardi wood steering wheel with Porsche crested horn button, Porsche crested seatbelts, and a radio with remote control.
Power comes from a custom-built 1915cc type-1 Volkswagen flat-four engine that is equipped with dual Kadron carburetors, electronic ignition, and a TriMill exhaust system. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 3:88 Freeway Flyer 4-speed manual transmission. Other performance features include front disc brakes and an adjustable front and rear suspension. Recent service items include a full tune-up and timing adjustment, carb adjustment, and oil change.
This sale will include a car cover, a sales brochure, and a clean title. Both eye-catching and performance-oriented, well-executed Speedster replica is not to be overlooked.
