I HAVE RELISTED THE CAR. AFTER LEARNING FROM SOME POSSIBLE BUYERS THAT THE BEST WAY TO IMPORT AND REGISTER THE CAR INTO THE USA IS BY NOT INCLUDING THE ENGINE OR TRANSMISSION. THIS AUCTION IS FOR THE FOLLOWING ITEMS ONLY:
Aluminum BodyChassisFront suspensionrear suspension minus shock Front disc brakesPedalsShifter SeatsStainless steel gas tankInstruments (VDO Tachometer. speedometer. oil pressure and battery light)windshieldWiring for lights
You will need to provide:Engine. transmission. rear axles and brakes.  wheels and tires.  battery. lights. All these items are easily found at VW parts stores and I can help you source them. Putting togwther the car is a very simple matter that any mechanic can acomplish.  

This car was built in the spirit of the Porsches of the 40s and 50s. Aluminum body. tubular chassis. mid engine. Its very low weight makes for an incredibly fun drive.

Here´s another video of the car when it had racing numbers and stripes: https://vimeo. com/74212534

The car was built and is located in Bogota. Colombia. But can be delivered anywhere in the US. specially since a free trade agreement has just been approved between the two countries. Shipping prices can be discussed on request.
I will travel and deliver the car in person.
Specs:
The car has a 1640 vw engine. with dual solex carbs. lightned flywheel. electronic ignition. ported and polished heads. 1. 25 rockers. scat c35 cam. It delivers more than enough power for an amazing ride.  
The front suspension is a VW. modified to be adjustable. Rear suspension has a Penske monoshock in the style of the Formula Vees.  
Chasis is mild steel mig welded.  
body is 0. 050 3003 aluminum.
Seats are aluminum.  
The car weights 480 kilograms.

Some fine print:
Can it be road legal? well. it is in Colombia. but every state has different regulations. You should check your states laws before bidding.  
This car is sold without any kind of warranty. I will deliver it to you in perfect working condition.  

If you would are interested please contact me through skype: badelico and I will be more than happy to answer any questions. I am also accepting commissions for other cars (a mk2 is planned).  
This was a personal project that has become a life project. I want to sell this car to continue building more. and for that reason a low reserve price has been set. I was trained as an artist at the Savannah College of Art and Design. so I understand that the value of a work of art depends on the commitment of the artist´s life to his work. That is why this. more than a car is a valuable object that will appreciate in time.    
THIS IS NOT A FIBERGLASS REPLICA. THIS IS A ONE OF A KIND. HAND BUILT. SPORTS CAR.
