1957 Speedster Replica
Built by Vintage Speedsters

This year is a transitional year for Speedster replicas!

Replica Speedsters have appreciated in value for the past several years and in 2018 significantly even more.
Due to the sale and relocation of the largest manufacturer of Speedsters, it will be extremely difficult to order a new Speedster and have it delivered before the end of the 2018 driving season.
This has created a high demand and increased prices for low mileage, used replica Speedsters, because there are far fewer of them!
Act quick, because this may be your only chance.
This Speedster comes with a beautiful Black exterior that just shimmers, but add the Camel interior and Nardi style 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 Camel Allante interior and was factory built by Vintage Speedsters, so you know it was done right. This Speedster has only been driven a little over 17,000 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 Mangle wheels with crested nipple hubs are simply spectacular and the tires still have the little "nubs" on them.

The gold script on the dash, the Speedster script on the front fenders, the hood handle badge, the Reutter badge on the side, the headlight stone guards, Stuttgart, Cote D' Azur and Germany grill badges, crested horn button, crested shift knob, crested key fob, crested valve stem caps, all add the finishing touches, but there is more!

It also has a luggage rack with a period correct tennis racket and suitcase with retro travel labels and custom made leather straps, leather hood straps and rear reflectors.

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 on eBay.

This beautiful Speedster is built on a 1969 VW pan and is titled as a 1969 VW in California with current registartion good until March 2019. 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.
The engine is a 1915cc VW with dual 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!
