DIY Speedster For Sale

It is with great sadness that I offer my Speedster for sale. I bought the body and the guy told me it was a Vintage but when I talked with Kirk at Vintage he told me they never sold a bare body so I have no idea who made it or how old it is.  I've built it up from just a stack of parts. It runs great and drive well. 1964 pan, stock 1600 dual port with 36DRLA Dellorto carbs, decent power and still gets 30mpg! Swing axle out of a 1968 with short axles so I can run along on the freeway all day at 70mph. I've put about 25k miles on it in the 6 years I've been driving it and it has been a blast! Currently painted with a faux patina and I get waves and thumbs up everywhere I go, it's actually the May 2019 calendar car!  Here is some info;

5 lug front discs

Vintage 190 15x51/2 wheels with 185/65x15 Falken ZE950 tires

Locking Frunk and engine deck lid pull with matching key (Made them my self!)

Gas springs for frunk and deck lid with billet aluminum hinges.

For added safety; 4 way emergency flashers, Led third brake light, side impact door bars (hidden in the doors!)

Roll up windows, heater, custom folding top frame ( folds down below the tonneau cover!) I've been working on the canvas top but it is not done. 

It's registered SB100 California smog exempt as a 2010 Special construction with 1958 VW engine.

I'm looking to get $12,000 out of it, I'm half way between Placerville and Folsom off US 50. 

Let me know if your interested.
