Registration: We registered this car to make it easy for all future buyers. It is registered as a 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder, not a “Kit Car”. By doing so, you are allowed to easily get Collector’s Car Insurance, Collector’s Car Financing (We do not provide financing so all financing must be done by potential buyer), you will also not have to do emissions since it is a 1955 vehicle. In certain states you are not required to purchase vehicle tabs either, just a onetime registration fee. In Arizona for example, this vehicle cost $68 to title, plus $25 for Historic plates (however you do not have to purchase the Historic plates). Car does have an assigned VIN, located inside front trunk.

 

Priced to sell at $37,995.00

Original Post
No, it's not too bad. We chose them specifically. Not everyone has the same taste. Mainly we did it so whomever purchases this specific vehicle can modify it a little bit to be more personal to them. Some like them, some don't. Personal preference. Thanks for your opinion however

Al, I laughed when I first read your post about the heated seats. I drove the car to Cars & Cofee in Scottsdale this last Saturday and the seats were plenty warm after sitting outside for a few hours

VERY NICE, Daniel! I like the black anodized/powder-coated trim for the outlaw look. Mendeola suspension is a killer touch. Very NICE! 

 

FWIW - I've logged 85,000 trouble-free, minimal-maintenance miles all over the Western states on my 1835 with dual Kadrons. Less time on tinkering means more time for driving. I'm just saying...

Hi Daniel,

 

You seem to be in the car business, so I will give you some advice.  Do some research with AZ DMV about the representations you are making on this car.  If you did indeed register it as a 1955 Porsche Spyder, you will have an intersting business career as a car manufacturer.  Perhaps this is easlly explained, as you made a typo above and forgot to include the word "replica" in your registration info.  You are advertising it here as a 2013 "tribute" car.  For your sake, I'm hoping that's what occurred.

Daniel, Good advice from Kelly!

 

My VS speedster was purchased out of Oregon with a DMV registration identity as a "1958 Porsche Convt"...and a separate boxed notation "Replica"

My new DMV registration omitted this notation!

 

Connecticut municipalities tax automobiles as personal property. I was billed by the town over $1,200 on my plastic bodied VW!!!!

 

It took a lot of tap dancing and tear shedding to revalue my VS as a Volkswagen.

 

The eventual owner of your 550 may think it's very cool to parade it as a Porsche...until the taxes come due.

I should have been more clear, I did not put the words "kit car" in the title, reasons being registration and insurance in other states. I made it easier, also so you will NOT be paying so much on your annual property tax for example. Here is how the car is registered:

 

Certificate of Title

 

Year: 1955

Make: SPECC

Model: PORSC

Body Style: RD

Vehicle Identification Number: AZ338510

 

I hope that cleared up your concern.

If I was in the market I would be contacting you.

Question: since you have registered it as a 1955 Porsche wouldn't it be difficult to register it in California? 

To register this in the state of California, all you need to do it bring in the Title and current Arizona Registration. Please refer to the answer above, SPECC is actually the MAKE on the Title. You'll be in-and-out of the DMV in Cali in no time with your new California Certificate of Title in hand (I cannot guarantee that the wait in line will be as quick however )

I should have just been more clear in the original posting of the Ad. I am not representing this as an Original Porsche 550 Spyder ever, nor have we ever. What I was trying to say earlier was that it does not say "Kit Car" anywhere on the title. Reason behind that is so the new owner can buy the car, register the car and be on their way... not having to take the car through a vehicle inspection point. We already did the vehicle inspections for you in order to get a VIN issued.

Here is how the car is registered:

 

Certificate of Title

 

Year: 1955

Make: SPECC

Model: PORSC

Body Style: RD

Vehicle Identification Number: AZ338510

 

I also stand corrected on the amount in which one will pay in the State of Arizona for Arizona Vehicle Registration... the fees were actually lower now that I have the Arizona Vehicle Registration in front of me:

 

Vehicle Identification Number: AZ338510

Plate Number: HVTEY2

Year/Make: 1955 SPECC

Body Style: RD

First Registered: 04/1955

List Price: $40,000

Fuel Type: G

Category: A

 

Vehicle Lic Tax: $10.00

Registration: $8.25

Air Quality: $1.50

Title: $4.00

Special Plate: $25.00

 

TOTAL $48.75

 

NOTE: The registration is cheaper if you decide to use regular license plates, we opted to get the Historical Vehicle copper plates because we thought they looked better than the normal ones. So that saves $25.00, so registration would have only cost: $23.75.

 

I hope this cleared up all concern and worries. I appreciate you guys addressing those issues. I should have been more clear in the original post, I posted it in a rush to get out the door. My apologies.

Please read the reply above to Kelly's question/advice above. Thank you.

 

Great advice guys! Greatly appreciated

Also, for those who are interested to see the car driving into last Saturday's Scottsdale Cars & Coffee gathering, I will post a little quick video. As well as some footage from the drive there.

YouTube video of Seduction Motorsports 550 Spyder on the way to Cars & Coffee:

(Ignore the hand print on the rear decklid, should have wiped that off with a microfiber and some spray wax.... was my first time setting up a GoPro camera so give me a break! )

 

http://youtu.be/R-LQLPZuMMA

 

There are some more videos on my YouTube channel however nothing too exciting since we are still figuring how to setup settings on the GoPro: SeductionMotorsports

Wow.  And what a wonderful sound that car makes.  A real "growl" that says p-o-w-e-r!!

 

As far as Kadrons, I can't match Jimmy's mileage number (actually no one can!)  but I put 12,000 on my type I with Kadrons and never touched them---these are bullet proof, trouble carbs with a great reputation.  I don't remember a post here complaining about trouble with Kadrons.

SPECC - Special Construction clears up the mis-understanding.  I need to register my cars in AZ! You would not have gotten by for less than $400 (plus sales tax) in FL.  $225 for initial standard plate issuance, $78 for title, etc.  30 year old antiques are "only" $75 for the plate.  They don't have a DMV - you go to the tax collector's office and have to show 3 means of govt issued identification (one having your SSN on it).  They even have the gall to charge you $6.25 service fee for taking your cash or check (Credit card adds another 3%)!

 

It's a nice car indeed. 

 I dont see it as being a kit car myself ,as it is alread finished. I do like the model as porsche.and maker should be who made it.

 on another note get some front wheel bearing caps on it befor the bearings are filled with crap, and put on a oil cooler exhaust tin,(I would duct it outside with a Y in it so it could be also routed in the car in the colder months viaduck flaper),and yes I dont like the kads,it would run & look so much better with idf's/hpmx's. and a bit more tire in the rear(witch I would consider owners costomizing, more than the carbs) with all this said, I would let it park in my driveway any time.

Haha, of course! Just on there for advertising at the local even I took it to last Saturday.

It does have wheel dust caps on there, they weren't pictured in the pictures above since that location was right outside the shop, snapped pictures, parked it back inside. Caps were put on before the break-in miles were put on the car.

 

If I was keeping this vehicle, I agree... I would put some far wider tires on the rear. These tires were used as our standard so when it comes time for the new owner to put new tires on, they won't cost him an arm and leg. Glad you enjoy it

it helps you are good with a camera, but the attention to detail is top notch. 

 

i'm sure you won't have problems finding a buyer.  good luck!

Thank you MangoSmoothie! That means a lot coming from you, I have always loved your Speedster. I will one day build my own 356 to keep using air ride. To be honest, your 356 is what made me even want to build 356's, which got me into 550s. I'd always browse your site for inspiration. Thank you

This beauty sold this week and was shipped out to West Virginia yesterday. Sad to see her go, but will be building another one very shortly.

 

Thank you everyone for the kind words, my apologies if I did not get back to everyone super quickly, I could not keep up with all the phone calls and emails about this particular 550.

Agreed.


I assume there is an inline filter somewhere closer to the gas tank. 

 

What's the logic for placing a secondary small, plastic fuel filter right on top of the engine?

 

Just wondering.

Great looking car....

 

Hi Kevin, 

 

I got your voice message yesterday, I'll definitely give you a call on Monday when I'm back in town. 

 

Thank you.

The engine builder has been placing fuel filters there for over 30 years and not once had any fires. I agree however.

Logic... It's been done for years. This one has another fuel filter up front below the tank. The new owner can remove the rear one if he's worried about it.

Thats where I mount them as well. There is one up front as well. 

Yes, you'd have to lift the car and get to it... Everyone who owns a Spyder knows to annoying it can be to jack up the front end. I put one up front below the tank as well. The one by the ignition coil has been used over and over by many builders. Yes if could leak fuel and possibly cause a fire, however flooding a carb can also leak fuel in the same area so really it would be no different. The fuel line by the carb is the same story.you could always argue that and then again some builders might even relocate the ignition coil. In the end, fires can always occur regardless. I could anh have installed fire suppression systems on race cars and offer that to all my clients as an option. 

Bob,  I install a fuel filter behind the left rear wheel along the top of the 2x2 frame rail.

 

Logic... It's been done for years....

 

 Well yeah I suppose there are individuals that just don't better, so in the name of we'll say common sense, one eliminates as many potential fire problems that is unless one has substantial coverage.

 

Remote location fuel filters, coils, quality fuel lines, valves in adjustment and carbs set correctly are things to do to minimize catastrophic events.

In about 1973 I had the fuel line on my VW van disconnect from the top of the inline standard fuel filter located in the stock position and the result was a cooked engine bay and all the accompanying lines, wiring etc.

 

Not fun. This was a well maintained and excellent running bus, until then. Took some work and money to get it back into shape. If the body had been fiberglass I don't think the car would have survived at all.

 

I am a fan of moving fuel lines, filters and pumps as far from potential ignition sources as possible.
