Back-story from the owner.
As a dealer. collector and enthusiast for classic cars. I am known locally for my online marketing. Many local and out of state collectors contact me to market their classic cars. As with all of my cars. both personal and consigned. I do my best to market them in a way that is respectful for both seller and buyer. Understanding that line of trust that I must follow to both parties is extremely important to me. Not to over sell or under sell is the balance I must tow to make sure both parties are represented properly. If the seller wants me to over represent their cars. I will not take the consignment. As for this car. it is very easy to represent the car in the limelight it deserves. A true classic design. a drivable car that doesn't need to sit in a museum or be tucked away within a collection. This Replica Car. of a 1958 Porsche Speedster with a full fiberglass shell on a 1968 Volkswagen chassis and engine does just that. gives you the great classic style and looks without the price-tag of an original. nor the stress of actually driving one. This is a no brainer get out on the road and enjoy the spin around town and the thumbs up of countless onlookers who don't know the difference but enjoy the looks of a pure classic Porsche. Enjoy and bid to own.

Where do you find such great classic cars?
Viva Las Vegas Autos!
1958 Porsche Speedster are a worldwide renowned classic car. So expensive these days that companies years ago started producing fiberglass kit cars that the average collector could afford and own. Building one was part of the joy for those that built them with professional help or even inside their own garages with their kids handing them tools. Either way. these replica cars continue to be hits today for many who want to drive them and yet afford both coin and stress to enjoy them everyday. This little gem is just that. A nice reproduction of the standard original 1958 Porsche Speedster. A local friend and client of mine purchased this car just last year at televised famous a classic car auction and enjoyed putting about 800 miles on it before he cam to me and asked me to help him sell it. His only reasoning. he was selling off his collection of cars. his house and moving to San Diego for a new job and no room to store his classic cars. So here it is. Very little history other than his own. no documentation on the build other than what I can see and you will see within this presentation. We know it rests on a 1968 Volkswagen Chassis with a single port 1600 engine that appears to be a crate block motor and no block casing number from an original VW. The engine has the adjustable valve guides. dual carbs and a header for extreme performance of zero to sixty in about 3 minutes. haha. just kidding about extreme performance. It drives. can get up to freeway speeds and it stops. turns and steers like a 1968 VW. Drum brakes front and rear. no leaks. no noises that are unusual. Just Cute. inexpensive (compared to original speedsters) driving for a car that looks like BIG DOLLARS that the originals bring.
More about the condition?
LOOKS. DRIVES AND FEELS LIKE A FRESH KIT CAR BUILD!
What else am I supposed to say. it's only has 3. 32 miles on it. Seriously
Tires have plenty of tread (90-95%) and I wouldn't hesitate to drive anywhere on them.
The first thing I do before I buy any car is look at it's condition then do a very serious investigation on it's history and care. As you can see looking at it from top to bottom. we have a great car here. Condition like this is indicative of an owner that takes pride in their vehicle. The builder of this car was very thorough and whoever painted it did a very nice job; no paint cracks or unsightly blemishes and a mirror-like shine. There is only one ding in one of the wheel caps but hardly noticed unless your really trying to find it (Left Rear). Trunk and Engine bays. beautiful. Interior Beautiful. Top. beautiful and no rips. The car doesn't have the side windows so you get all the air conditioning you want right through the open sides. Steering is tight and the handling just like a 1968 VW Beetle. NOT A TRACK CAR.
A breathtaking Replica Kit Car of a 1958 Porsche Speedster that shows pristine . . .
Can you just see yourself driving this little gem? I did. It was a blast and full of waves from onlookers all the way down the street. Why not treat yourself to a little fun you can take to the local car shows. run out and grab an ice cream with the grandkids or just enjoy a weekend drive without the stress of thinking you're drive a half million dollar car. but let them think you are.
Power house? Not here.
Just a simple single port crate motor 1600cc dual carb motor with lots of chrome. a updated 12 volt starter and clean as a pin.
1. 6 Liter H4
80 horsepower (I think)
Finding an undercarriage this clean will only happen when you find a car that has been extremely well cared for. No rust. No leaks. No damage. This is a very important aspect of our business model. If it isn't great under hear. what's up top can only be superficial.

A note from the owner.
I am a “used car dealer” but before that. I'm an automobile enthusiast. I love original rare and high quality modified vintage cars and over the past decade I've been in business. have come to appreciate an expanding selection of high-demand. high value vehicles. I specialize in and am always on the lookout for cars and trucks that were cherished by their previous owners. I have an experienced eye for quality but I've discovered that my preferred buyer can instantly discern such a vehicle and I have therefore. built my business and reputation around finding these kinds of cars for this type of customer. Super low miles and/or gentle ownership are strict requirements but a car must do something for me on a personal level if there is any hope of convincing you. the bidder. that this is an above average. exceptional vehicle. If nothing about the car excites me. it probably won't do much for you either and I would soon be out of business.
With just four employees and no sales people. I realize how unusual a “dealership” like mine may at first glance appear. It has taken great care and effort to create such an organization and often. an unusually high investment in a particular car we are about to list. To sell the best it is critical to have a trusted expert in my corner and Chris. owner of A-Best Auto Repair in Henderson. Nevada has my back. He and his crew can fix anything; from a low budget beater to the absolute most expensive exotic you can name. no job is too big and no small detail unimportant. They do an exhaustive 130 point inspection on each and every vehicle and nothing escapes their methodical investigation. Experience has shown that everything I spend making a car truly “right” will come back to me not only with a higher selling price. but a happy customer that says good things about me. Moreover; it allows my writer to describe the car with ease and confidence. something that simply is not possible unless he thinks it is true. If major issues are found or the cost of fixing the car the way it should be makes it too expensive to sell. my choice is an easy one. I simply absorb a few hundred dollars loss for my trouble and sell it at auction.
After the vehicle is fully sorted it arrives at our facility where it encounters the suspicious eye of Tom. my writer that creates the presentations you see on eBay. He believes absolutely nothing I or anyone else tells him about the car as he combs over every inch. researches its history and documents originality and authenticity. Historical significance. rarity. special features. possible modifications and much more are used to accurately describe the vehicle with integrity and honesty. Most important for the potential buyer are the 100 to 150 high resolution pictures that I take myself. The pricey equipment I use would be right at home in the hands of the very best professional photographers and I've developed a logical format that walks you around the entire vehicle with close-up shots of every square inch. I provide detailed views of the interior. under the hood and then put it on a lift to show the undercarriage and confirm that the beauty of the car you are considering is not merely skin deep. Even our detailers are enthusiastic about the cars they so meticulously clean. This reconditioning can sometimes take several days and I've converted a paint booth. especially prepared for the professional clay bar and polishing each car lovingly receives.
Usually. I'll also include a high definition video that shows the car doing its thing. If it's a fast car. we film it going fast. If it's a 4x4 you'll see it crawling up a hill. In every case you will hear things like a rumbling exhaust. working sound system and watch the temperature fall on a digital. laser thermometer pointed at an air conditioning vent. How many “dealers” will video a Lotus Esprit doing a buck-eighty? We do.
No “dealer. on-line or in the real world. takes it to this level. No other seller or organization provides you. the buyer. with so much information. I do this because it is the only way I can convince a person; often a world away. unable to touch or feel their purchase. that my vehicle is for real and what I say is the truth. All the above is necessary for me to stay in business while keeping integrity intact. I want every buyer to be happy and I need glowing feedback on eBay. To accomplish that I need satisfied customers that are as thrilled with their purchase as I was when I bought it.
If you have any questions at all. please call me on my cell at: 702-353-7500. If your inquiry is sincere and your offer serious. you'll find me the most accommodating business partner you've ever dealt with. If you call or e-mail asking for my reserve or “what is my bottom line” I will be looking for ways to politely end the conversation. Until you are ready to actually pull the trigger. I will happily quote you the absolute highest nationally advertised suggested retail price I can find – a number we both know will not buy the car so. don't waste your time. or mine. I am after all. a “used car dealer. ”
Serious buyers know the maximum they can offer. I then must simply decide if I can sell for that number.
If you hit the reserve. the decision is no longer mine. I must sell at that number.
