1957 Speedster 356 Replica
STUNNING VINTAGE SPEEDSTERS 356, 3K MILES SINCE BUILT, SLICK RED, TAN INTERIOR
If you are a fan of the incredibly rare early Speedsters, you're probably like us and have an appreciation for the true 356s. They are incredibly rare cars and the only downside to them is the six digit price tag they bring when they pop up. Then if you are lucky enough to afford one, you almost feel guilty taking it out on the street. The next best option? This gorgeous 1957 Vintage Speedsters 356 Replica!
Carrying just less than 3,000 miles since it was finished in 2010, this car has already started to garner a lot of attention in our Mooresville, NC showroom. The replicas was built by one of the most prolific builders of these speedster replicas - Vintage Speedsters out of Scottsdale Arizona. Vintage Speedsters uses a custom built, jig welded, 2×4 inch 11-gauge steel frame. And then an original VW pan is restored, shortened and welded to the new steel skeleton. The rigid new structure retains the original VW pan design and integrates the largest frame possible. This company has been doing these hand built replicas since 1986! Safe to say they know what they are doing! And as of 2016 had built over 3300 of these replicas, if you are in the market, there's arguably no one better.
However, the owner of the car took it to the next level by combining a stunning red paint job and a tan interior that creates a show stopper look. It really is incredible to see it under our lights. The paint shows little to no flaws and the interior is void of any cracks or tears.
What's even more impressive though is the owner went to the next step and ordered all new emblems and genuine pieces for the car from the renowned Sierra Madre Collection. He included the 356a tool kit, 356a owner's manual, lietz luggage rack decal, correct koni decal, correct super hubcaps, correct spare tire strap, correct gold speedster dash emblem and the list continues. There's probably $2,000 in receipts for just the emblems!
The result is the 356 replica roadster that will stop anyone in their track. Simply put, this is the 356 that you can drive and enjoy and not feel guilty about!
Included in the sale is a tonneau cover and a soft top. Contact Shelton Classics & Performance at 704-663-0432 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
