CMC Speedster- 1957 Porsche 356 Replica Price: 18000
Originally built in '92 by a CB Performance in CA for the first owner- a plain jane build w/stock 1500cc.
Second owner bought it and did a lot of upgrade work, adding the Fuchs style wheels and the nerf bars bumpers added the oil cooler and had a new engine built, the current 1905cc w/dual Webers 44s.
Rewiring was done to get all the electrics to work, upgraded the ignition, dist and coil, new plugs, oil change, a new A-1 Sidewinder exhaust system, etc.
The pan is rust free, no holes or anything, there is some minor surface rust though as the undercoating applied when built has come off in places.
It has a stock '68 transaxle with a Bugpack 'quickshift' lockout shifter, it had a new performance clutch and pressure plate installed along with the engine. There is aprox. 24K on the car and 10k on the drivetrain. Trunk was carpeted and installed a 4500btu aux. heater and an new stereo and speakers.
Additional items (began the Outlaw look):
Outlaw style bonnet straps
VS Outlaw style headlight mesh
Upgraded LED headlights
Hella 700 aux driving lights (yellows)
Currently removed bumpers (I have nerf bars and original bumpers)
CB Performance front sway bar
CB Performance rear camber compensator bar
Suspension replaced with VW OEM blues
New OEM steering damper
Original Emory 356 Outlaw badge on boot grate

Car runs out fast- unsure on final gear- but runs 70-80mph easily at decent rpm.
Front ball joints are a bit worn, I have new replacements but haven't gotten around to pressing them in.
Really this project is complete. I was considering upgrade more: electric fuel pump,etc but had another project fall in my lap that took priority.
Car is garage kept under silk- resides in central NC. Asking 18k OBO.
