This Porsche Speedster 1955 replica is constructed on a modified 1969 Volkswagen Beetle pan and was built in 1994 by Specialty Auto Works of New Tazewell, Tennessee and remain in business to this day operating as Specialty Auto-Sports, Inc,.  Its owner Steven Lawing still remembers this vehicle!  The sale includes complete Provenance Binder for the vehicle including pre-order contracts and invoices, registrations though its history and invoices of work completed.  A total of nearly $5k was spent 9/2023 preparing the vehicle for sale and the motor runs extremely well and the car looks amazing. This 356A replica is finished in red over brown vinyl upholstery and is powered by a 1,835cci flat-four paired with a four-speed manual transaxle. Equipment includes a brown soft top, 15″ wheels, body-color bumpers, a Sony stereo, a Moto-Lita wood-rimmed steering wheel, and tonneau cover, The car features gold badging, a vented decklid, and dual exhaust outlets with polished finishers, a tonneau cover and side curtains. There is a bit of discoloration visible on the right-side curtain window. Chrome-finished 15″ wheels wear Porsche-branded hubcaps and are mounted with Firestone F-560 tires. The cabin features low-back front bucket seats and a rear bench upholstered in brown vinyl with color-coordinated door cards and tan carpets. Equipment includes lap belts, a Moto-Lita wood-rimmed steering wheel, a center console with integrated cup holders, and a Sony stereo linked to door-mounted speakers. A small area of flaking paint is noted on the steering column, and a small tear is visible on the driver’s side door panel and a small area of frayed carpet under the right side of the dashboard. Instrumentation consists of VDO gauges featuring a central 7k-rpm tachometer, a 150-mph speedometer, and a fuel level gauge. The five-digit odometer shows less than 7k miles. The oil temperature gauge does not work, and a replacement aftermarket oil temperature gauge has been mounted under the dashboard. The air-cooled 1,835cc flat-four is equipped with a single carburetor and a chrome-finished air cleaner. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transaxle. Service in August 2023 involved adjusting the valves and idle speed as well as replacing the rear oil cooler seals, pushrod tubes, rear crankshaft seal, distributor cap and rotor, oil pump seal, and valve cover seal. A Tennessee-issued VIN tag is located in the driver’s door jamb and shows identification number TNVIN950633051267. The Tennessee title carries a Specially Constructed Vehicle brand and lists the car as a 1955 Porsche Replica. The car is available in St. Petersburg, Florida.  Asking $52,000.00.  Please call or text JB at 858-752-3434
