Description for Porsche Other 1964

This listing is for the commissioned build of the Frankfurt Flyer 2 seat Spyder. The Frankfurt Flyer started as a lifelong dream of building my own aluminum bodied sports racer similar to the post war speed enthusiasts of Germany. After owning many Porsche cars over the years, n 2012 I completed my first ground up build and since have built 4 more of this design for fellow speed enthusiasts. Please understand this listing is for an unbuilt car because nearly every detail is bespoke to your personal taste, iterally hand built. The delivery time for the basic Spyder model takes 7 months from initiation.

History:
THE EARLY DAYS
Shortly after WWII in war-torn Germany, small group of speed enthusiasts emerged from tool rooms and barns sporting lightweight aluminum bodied race cars across the German countryside. These cars were purpose built with one goal in mind, peed. The cars shared common underpinnings most often in the form of scrap Volkswagen, orsche and aircraft pieces from the left over military vehicles.
Early day "Privateers" such as Petermax Muller and Huscke von Hanstein traded scarce food supplies with Wolfsburg engineers for modified Porsche and VW parts to build the Petermax Muller Special. The Muller Special was built on a Kubelwagen chassis with Schwimmwagen front suspension and highly modified Vogelsang heads. The car went on to win and set records in the first Postwar days of racing.
Other "Eigenbau" (translated Home-built) Aluminum bodied specials included Kurt Kuhnke's VW beetle based racer and the sleek Rometsch Porsche. One racing special made a name for itself, hat was Walter Glockler's VW "Eigenbau." After the war, lockler had opened his Frankfurt VW Dealership and had a long standing interest in motorsport. He appointed the ingenious race engineer Hermann Ramelow to build his chassis and coachbuilder C.H. Weidenhausen to wrap the car in its beautiful aluminum skin. The car began wearing a VW badge but in a short time, orsche had approached Glockler pressuring him to put the Porsche name on his car in exchange for Porsche parts. The deal was done and the Glockler Porsche was born. Glockler went on to build several variations of his Porsche Specials, ll bodied by C.H. Weidenhausen, eventually the car would give birth to the Porsche 550 Spyder.
