Details

Turn-key 356 Speedster re-creation built to look like the famous 4 cam Carrera GS race cars that dominated small bore racing classes throughout the late '50s. Beyond the incredible quality and exacting proportions, this car was custom built with a host of details and equipment that are not typically seen on other, lesser re-creations. This Carrera Speedster is powered by a new 1915cc H4 with a center exit sports exhaust system and backed by a 3.88 transaxle. It features front disc brakes, two-piece 5-lug racing style wheels, Spyder mirrors, leather bonnet tie-down straps, louvered rear deck lid, Marchal driving lamps, wire mesh headlight stone guards, "bee-hive" tail lamps, complete Carrera badges and show quality Signal Red Paint. The interior is equipped with a wood-rim Nardi steering wheel, genuine cocoa mats, Spyder style racing seats, red piping, a quick release chrome fire extinguisher and genuine VDO gauges. Topping it all off is a custom made removable fiberglass hardtop that replicates the ultra-rare original factory option. With painstaking attention to detail, performance that outpaces the original, a unique and racy look and absolutely the finest quality components and craftsmanship, this Speedster Carrera GS/GT re-creation is a stand out example. **TITLED AS A 1965 VOLKSWAGEN**
