This is the 46th Speedster I've owned. Over the past 10 years, my hobby has been restoring and enhancing Speedsters. I only deal with Speedsters that were originally built by Vintage Speedsters or JPS, because they are factory built rather than home built like CMC and FiberFab Speedsters. As you compare my car to the others that you see here and on other sites, you will notice that in addition to very high quality pictures, I also post a 20 minute video of my wife and I driving the car. Also, my ad has pictures of the underside of the engine. There is a reason that nobody else does that!
Replica Speedsters have appreciated in value for the past several years and significantly more so in 2018. Virtually every Speedster I have previously sold is worth more now than I sold it for.
Due to the sale and relocation of the largest manufacturer of Speedsters replicas, it has been extremely difficult to order a new Super Widebody Speedster during the 2018 driving season. In fact, there has not been a single one built this year and it's questionable if any new ones will ever be built again.
This has created a high demand and increased prices for low mileage, Super Widebody Speedsters, because there are far fewer of them!
***Beware, this is a Vintage Super Widebody***
It is not a Classic Motor Carriages (CMC) or FiberFab flared Speedster.
There is a significant difference, look closely!!!
Both of those companies have been out of business for many many years.
Many people are confused by this. Contact me and I can give you more details.
This Speedster comes with a beautiful Black exterior that just shimmers, but add the Black interior and Lecarra steering wheel and you have the iconic and timeless look that was envisioned for these cars some 60 years ago.
The amount of attention this car will get can actually be a little bit embarrassing when everyone is gathered around your car at the country club and the guy with the six figure Ferrari or Lambo is almost ignored. You will actually feel sorry for them, especially when you consider the cost of their cars compared to what you paid for this classic beauty. It's no BS, just ask any Speedster owner.
*Fair warning, don't buy this car if you can't handle all the attention and questions you will get.*
If you're looking for fun and excitement and you like the idea of "the wind in your hair," but think a motorcycle is too dangerous or, you already have a motorcycle, but your significant other is tired of riding on the back and you want something that is just as exciting, but more comfortable and way more classy, then this car is for you!
More fun and much more comfortable than a motorcycle, costs less than some Harleys, you can't fall off of it and there is
NO HELMET REQUIRED!!!
This classic Speedster replica comes with a beautiful Black paint job and Black interior and was factory built by Vintage Speedsters, so you know it was done right. This Speedster has only been driven 16,685 miles and has never been driven in the rain. The exterior, interior, top and side curtains are in excellent, like new condition. The custom super wide wheels are simply spectacular and the tires are in very good condition. This car also has an under the dash Kenwood stereo/CD player, with remote, that sounds incredible!
The car has mesh headlight stone guards and engine grill badges that add the finishing touches, but there is more! It also comes with a luggage rack, leather luggage strapes, a vintage suitcase with vintage travel decals, vintage snow skis and poles. If that doesn't get you Best of Show at your local car show, I don't know what will!
This car also comes with super cool, custom made, top down "CruZin Windows" that almost nobody else has, because I make them myself! I also sell them separately.
This beautiful Speedster is built on a 1966 VW pan and has current California registration good until August, 2019. It has a clean title and is registered as a 1966 VW, with no smog certification requirements. The engine is a big 1776cc with dual Weber DCNF carbs and a 4 speed manual 3:88 "Freeway Flyer" transmission. It starts every time with just a turn of the key, sounds great, pulls well and runs VERY strong.
When comparing this Speedster with Speedsters from other manufacturers, pay very close attention to the quality of the build. Check that the doors, hood and trunk all fit smoothly and are aligned properly, with no gaps.

There are many extras that are not shown in the photos, including appropriate badges and emblems, but they are included in the sale. Ask about them.
This Speedster is simply a classic beauty, it turns heads and gets thumbs-up everywhere it goes and is a joy to drive.
All you will need to do with this car is buy it, drive it and build a shelf for all the trophies you will win when you show it.
