This year is a transitional year for Speedster replicas!
Replica Speedsters have appreciated in value for the past several years and significantly even more in 2019.
Unlike most cars, they are an investment that typically appreciates with time.
This Speedster comes with a beautiful Black exterior that just shimmers, but add the Black interior and genuine Nardi steering wheel and you have the iconic and timeless look that Ferdinand 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 stunning, Midnight Black paint job. It has a beautiful Black interior and was factory built by Vintage Speedsters, so you know it was done right. This Speedster has been driven less than 3,000 miles since it was built. It has never been driven in the rain and the exterior, interior, top and side curtains are in excellent, like new condition. The chrome wheels with Baby Moon hubcaps are simply spectacular.
The gold script on the dash, front and rear, the Speedster script on the front fenders, the hood handle badge, the Reutter badge on the side, the Germany grill badges, crested horn button, crested key fob, crested valve stem caps, all add the finishing touches, but there is more!It also has a luggage rack with a vintage Wilson wooden tennis racket, suitcase with retro travel labels and custom made leather straps.
This car also comes with super cool, custom made, top down "CruZin Windows" and crested seatbelts that almost nobody else has, because I make them myself! I also sell them separately, just contact me if you're interested.
This beautiful Speedster is built on a 1966 VW pan and is titled as a 1966 VW with current California registration, good until April 2020. 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.
Most importantly, did they post current high definition pictures of the engine from the top and below and did they post a video of the car actually being driven? If not, they are probably hiding something they don't want you to see.
The engine is a 1600cc VW with dual Kadron carbs. It has 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!
