This Porsche 356 Speedster recreation has just been treated to a full cosmetic and mechanical restoration and looks absolutely stunning.
It is based on a 1981 Volkswagen with an Scats-worked 1.6-litre engine that has been bored, and fitted with uprated push-rods and twin Weber carburettors, it produces around 75bhp. It has just been stripped right down and rebuilt with a full stainless-steel dual-exit exhaust, new cowling and other trim. The rest of the mechanical parts, including the brakes, have been overhauled with new parts as well.
The body was, we believe, created by replica specialist Pilgrim and is extremely well built and features ‘Outlaw’ style wide arches to give the Speedster a cool Californian roadster look, set off perfectly with brand-new 8×15 Smoothie chrome steel wheels and hubcaps, plus new tyres. The Ivory White paintwork has recently been applied to a very high standard.
The interior is finished with refurbished red leatherette seats, matching carpets and a new wood-rimmed steering wheel. There is a brand-new hood in complementing burgundy canvas.
This is a unique and wonderfully fun car at fraction of a price of a genuine Porsche 356 Speedster. It is beautifully presented and makes a fun summer cruiser.
