I have seen two and both had the same issues: Because of the additional weight of the fiberglass body they crack in the back...I suppose they could be braced similar to the butt sag door gap issues but it still would be one ugly morphed speedster.

I think they're pretty fugly, but that's just my opinion...

PS-  ^^^what Alan said^^^

I saw a red one at Carlisle event - and the engine compartment appears much larger than in a Speedster.  I'm guess it is just a longer tail (which would shorly need added steel to support aka CMC butt sag).  I tried to find a build manual to see if the pan was shortened like the Speedster but could not find one.  The top appears same size so suspect pan is shortened. I recall reading years ago that the kit sold for $15k --- where the CMC Speedster was around $8k --- must be the extra engine grill! Reportedly only about 200 were made.  One had a 6 cyl Porsche engine (sold to new owner in Japan) and there was a rotary wankel in one in TX.

  • Hummm. After owning my white 359 for several years i haven't had any cracks or other problems. But its identification lable say  fiberfab. And has the Ca. Spcn smog label too.   And better too as it has porsche guages, no hood pins, better mirrors.  It seems to attract a lot more attention than the porch 356 because nobody knows what they are but that's just my opinion I Luv It. all though I don't use it much.20150310_103750

Ok, that was pretty funny! Touche

Lol first time on a ferry. Coming home from Woodburn show. Scared as hell of the ramp as had just installed coil shocks to raise the front end so it wouldn't scrap driveways.  It really handled great after that.  Was purchased from the Subaru dealer in Sonora, Ca.

 I bought a speedster project from Steve Hall from  TN. a couple of years ago and two of the FG double humps, they fit like a glove..the mold was very professional and is / was available.

@Theron Theron is it possible to scan in his 359 build manual and post it here on SOC.  I've never seen one posted anywhere.  It would be good to preserve the manual for others.

Any idea of how many made by FF/CMC? I found one reference that said just over 200 and cost was $15k each kit.  Found another that said #206 was for sale in Calgary years ago. The interior looks same as Speedster - same top assembly.  The length seems to be past the engine bay.

If I could get a hold of the manual for a bit, I would certainly scan and put it in the library here.
