1956 Porsche 356

This is a Porsche Speedster replica manufactured by Vintage Speedster in California. It is a well-put-together, no-stories car. 1600 CC motor, 4-speed + reverse. Good tires. 7,218 kilometers (or about 4,485 miles) on odometer. Seats and upholstery are in good shape. This is titled as a 1968 VW.
As you can see by the decals, we bought this as an advertisement piece for our local Great Clips franchises. We mainly parked it in front of our stores on nice days. We simply never use it any more and it has been sitting in my garage. There are no operational issues with the car - I just put a new battery in it last month. The decals are easily removable.
The car needs a few rock chip areas touched up that are generally an 1/8th of an inch or less. There is some touchup also needed just below the driver's side rear view mirror - the mirror was apparently loose once upon a time and chipped off some paint.
If you have any questions feel free to call me. I have owned a number of exotic cars (primarily Ferraris) so I always ask lots of questions when I'm looking at a car. But this car is unique because it has the exotic car look and feel, but it is essentially VW running gear and there's just not a lot that can go wrong in less than 5,000 miles. But do feel free to call me at (806) 672-7102 if you have questions.
I would recommend enclosed shipping for the car, but it should not be too expensive as I am in Amarillo, Texas right on Interstate 40.
