1955 Porsche 550 SPYDER REPLICA 550

Build with high quality attention to detail in 09 by long time PCA driving instructor and Porsche mechanic in San Diego CA. Vehicle has clean California title and set up for Street diving, Canyons, compete in SCCA or Porsche Auto-Cross . It is Street Lega, sounds and shifts wonderful, handles like a Go-Kart Quick & nimble! Vehicle had always been serviced by its' original owner, builder of this replica till I purchased it two years ago from him. I displayed the car at GrandPrix of Long Beach IMSA Championship for their Vintage races and drew lots of attention. Vehicle has always been garaged in California with no rust, which looks wonderful and drives great. It is truly a fine example and attention grabber of a great maintained Spyder. Recent Services included fresh rebuild motor at 17k miles, new brakes, new clutch with new front tires. Rear tires need to be replaced. I have always done oil service on the car every 1k miles or every 6 month depending on use, with adjusting the carbs when necessary. If you are looking for a fun all around car or hobby car that is a driver with normal patina, to attend Cars & Coffee, SuperCar Sundays or drive Vintage Race Canyon Runs that doesn't break your wallet or will not depreciate in value, then you'll not find a better deal than this one.
