MotoeXotica is pleased to announce another cult classic from the sixties the Porsche 550 Spyder replicar. The 550 is often replicated, and as always, the quality varies widely from manufacturer to manufacturer…our replica is from Perry Ds, Inc., Lake Matthews, CA. The Perry Ds Spyder body fits on a stock VW pan that affords the car’s two occupants and their personal items plenty more space than an original or another manufacturer’s reproduction 550.
The Porsche 550 Spyder is one of the all time great Porsche racing cars. Among Porsche’s first dedicated race cars (since the 356 was first and foremost a street car), the 550 Spyder removed all doubt about what the small new German sports car company was all about. The 550 consistently gave cars of twice the displacement a run for their money, including a win at the 1956 Targa Florio, which proved that the new company, which was just five years old when the 550 first appeared, was serious about motorsport.
Finished in a “Petrol Blue” metallic, this roadster shows extremely well with only very minor imperfections visible upon close inspection. Steel subframes behind fiberglass body front and rear. The headlights and tail lights are in excellent condition. The windshield glass is pit and scratch free. The weather-stripping is pliable, with little or no signs of drying, tearing or shrinkage. The car comes equipped with a black tonneau cover top in very good condition. The original 15-inch wheels represent well with only slight signs of marring. All the trim is present, complete and displays normal wear. The Wendler Reutelingen badge (German coach builder), Mille Miglia and Nurburgring badge add further to the vintage European feel, as does the headrest fairing and leather straps for the rear clam shell. The side mirror is a vintage, highly desirable Talbot type and is in very good shape.
Inside, the “Marine Grade” rich tan vinyl front bucket seats with” Simpson” racing type belts have an excellent period appearance with normal slight wear spots visible. The matching tan carpet is used tastefully to protect the entire roomy interior floor extending up the sides of the tub. The blue dashboard is a continuation of the striking blue exterior of the car and look fantastic. All the green lit VDO gauges are ergonomically placed, have correct appearance and function as originally designed. The period correct equipped wooden Nardi steering is in excellent condition, however the horn is inoperable.
This car, built less than 600 miles ago, comes equipped with a 2.0L flat four cylinder Volkswagen Type 1 engine with dual Weber carburetors, K&N air cleaners, mated to a Volkswagen Type 1 four-speed manual gearbox, four-speed Type 1 trans/swing axle rear end, rear VW torsion bars, front select-a-drop front beam with coilover adjustable shocks, custom aluminum fuel tank with Lemans fuel filler. The wheels are 15 inch chrome steel Porsche rims with matching Porsche crest hub caps.
This is a great opportunity to acquire an evocative car that represents terrific bang for the buck. Its appearance is striking, its performance is stirring, and its cosmetic patina and unusual number of correct details adds a feel of vintage authenticity that is difficult to find in these replicas. GET OUT AND DRIVE!
