Description for Porsche 356 1955

The Difference between a home built Speedster and a professionally built one can be thousands of dollars in repairs and upgrades to make it feel safe and reliable. Most Speedster replicas do look similar in photos, but upon close inspection, the real difference can be amazing. Don't let your Speedster purchase ruin your dream. Alan Merklin who built this car, has been building and restoring Speedsters and Spyders for 18 years.

This Speedster replica has been built as a one of one. It has a tube chassis grafted to a VW type 1 rear torsion assembly and forward axle beam. You wont find a duplicate Speedster anywhere. This is one of those cars that is amazing to own and exhilarating to drive. The car was assembled and gone through making everything as perfect as possible with safety first. You wont find anything wrong, nor does the car need anything worked on.
