Description

Lot #866 - Turn-key 356 Speedster re-creation built to the highest standards paying homage to the legendary Carrera GS/GT race cars that helped lay the foundation for Porsche's motorsports legends in the 1950's. The hand made body is virtually indistinguishable from the original cars and is finished to show quality in Porsche Slate Grey. The car boasts a long list of racing-type features including louvered deck lid for improved engine cooling, dual 550 Spyder racing mirrors, chrome 5-lug wheels, shaved side moldings and removed bumpers, racing roundels and Mobil Pegasus decals, leather bonnet safety straps, wire mesh headlight guards, auxiliary driving lamps, 550 Spyder bucket seats, racing belts, chrome fire extinguisher, full cockpit tonneau cover and matching black softtop. Performance keeps up with the racy look thanks to a brand new dual carbureted 1,915cc engine, 3.88 Freeway Flyer 4-speed transaxle, front disc brakes, front and rear sway bars, lowered suspension, high performance alignment, Pirelli tires and jet coated high performance exhaust system. Additionally notable features include genuine all leather interior, authentic Porsche Carrera badging, beehive tail lamps, black banjo steering wheel, VDO gauges, square loop carpeting, Coccoa floor mats and 356 door sill plates. This Speedster Carrera GS/GT re-creation has been driven just 19 miles since the build and presents as new. *TITLED AS A 1964 VOLKSWAGEN*
