Description for Porsche 550 spyder 1968

I hate to sell the car, but I have two little kids and I just don't have the time to drive it anymore.
This model utilizes a Volkswagen Chassis with rear mounted engine and a Perry-D custom fiberglass body that is bolted directly to the chassis. Perry-D Porsche is a little bigger then the original car since it is on VW pan. So if you are a bigger person there is more room inside the car.
The car was built by certified welder and he built this car with a protective roll bar package that includes reinforcement under the dash and a roll bar behind the driver and passenger . The added stiffness of this setup helps this car to handle well.
-It is titled, registered in California.-It's registered as a 68 VW and therefore does not require a Smog certificate.-only the milage gauge works and the speed, the other two can be replaced for a few hundred dollars (see picture driving)-The car runs great anddoesn'thave any drivability problems.-The transmission is a '68 VW transaxle which shifts like any typical good condition VW transmission does. It runs at 70-75 mph with no problems. Higher gears can be installed if desired.-The engine is rebuilt and only has 2383 miles on it-The engine is a typical VW with double carb and not a high performance version.-roll bars under the dash and in the rear compartment behind the seat,plus the over the head roll bar U-Tube protectors which can be seen in the photos.-included is a built-in trickle battery charger that will keep the battery properly charged duringtimesthe caris not used.-installed an adjustable front I Beam as part of the front suspension. This allows the front of the car to be adjusted to the proper height level and also helps adjust the wheelalignment.
If you have any questions feel free to ask, or if you would like to see the car let me know and I can set up a time. If you want to see more pictures feel free to ask.

I added some pictures of the paint and inside the car. The paint is about 4 1/2 years old, there is a few area that the clear coat can be touched up you can see in the pictures where the paint doesn't shine. There is also some scratches around the car. The seats have a few black rubber marks from getting in and out of the car, you can see them in the pictures too.
