    Porsche Speedster 356 Replica

    I've cleaned it all up as it didn't sell too well on fleebay as it had flat tyres and was covered in dust and didn't run.

    It's now had new tyres, new battery, having some wiring done to the rear offside lights (brake and indicator seemed dodgy - thought it was fuses, apparently not).

    So before it sells (as it should do now!) I thought I post some pictures up I took the other day while it was slightly overcast but not wet! Thankfully.

    A couple of details (of which I learnt many trying to sell it and people kept correcting me on ebay - godda love the nay saying tyre kickers who just want to rip the listing apart):-

    It wasn't built in 1973 as a speedster replica, it used a 1973 beetle as the base car, floor pan and chasis. It was actually built in 1997 for Francie Clarkson.

    See the builders website here: Classic Porsche cars
    Look for the yellow speedster on the right hand side with the heading "technic speedster in morocco"
    Direct link to the article here: http://www.technic-motorsport.com/M&...20Clarkson.pdf

    The previous owner had modified it somewhat, and I've now learnt thanks to fleebay member 'larrypage19877' that it has been "California'd up" somewhat.

    It has a lightened and balanced flywheel, weber carbs lightened and balanced, 1800 bored out beetle engine, something something exhaust (I couldn't quite catch the name) he spoke fast. Push button start, decent stereo, 600 watt amp, 6x9's and sub woofer all hidden in the car. Fire extinguisher as surprisingly enough the amp with loads of bare wires are 6 inches from the petrol filler cap. Apparently that is a very common place to stick amps in beetles and the likes. Gives me the shakes though to be honest.

    Short of the roof being dodgy as it had a tonneau cover on it when the previous owner bought it and he wanted a roof. I can't fit in it with the roof up so it isn't for me, I've left it down, but that has put one guy off. Fair enough.

    Here are the lovely pictures though......
    (If it's dry, and hasn't been sold, it will be on the road for the may 13th local meet so I will bring it for you to check out in the flesh)

    Need money for the amarok mate. Which is also such a nice car, but a lot more practical.
