The body is a Classic Motor Carriages produced in 1988 but wasn’t built until I acquired it. The project was started about 5 years ago and has been "in process" since then. It has just recently been completed and has less than 1000 miles on it.
A little about myself: I have been an enthusiast of vintage VW and Porsche cars for many years now, and was a restoration specialist at Competition Engineering. I’ve done many restorations and had acquired lots of 356 parts in the process. When I found this car I thought it would be a good use for some of the parts I had. With my knowledge of these cars and the original parts the result was this very authentic looking replica. I take pride in my work and I think the result speaks for itself. I’m passionate about these kinds of cars and my craft with them. If you have more questions and want to know more details, give me a call and I’m happy to tell you all about it. 602 418-5985.

It has a clean Arizona title in my name and is titled as a 1959 Porsc Spcon. I know the car represents a 57 or 58 but this is how the DMV decided to title it and that’s a lot better than 1988 or 2010. I think it should be exempt from emissions in any state.
I can include for additional cost an original hardtop shell by Plastic Dynamics. Made for original speedster and will have to be modified to fit. $500Also an original 1962 356 engine is in the process of being rebuilt and restored. $10,000
You can arrange shipping of your own choice, or depending on the time frame I may be able to personally deliver it to you within the 49 states for a reasonable cost. I’d love to meet the new owner and explain any details of maintenance and ownership.
