Awesome car with the right engine. Beautiful outlaw.
You should start a consulting service on how to properly list a vehicle for sale with various online services. Very well listed (ie. text details, numerous photos from every angle and lighting level, long video w/ actual sound).
Beautiful car as well. I hope it stays in CA.
I'm always amazed at how little effort some people make when posting a car on eBay. Most of my cars are bought by people who never actually see the car in person. It takes a pretty big leap of faith to wire someone you don't know $20 or $30 thousand dollars for something they have only seen a few grainy pictures of.
It isn't hard to take good quality pictures these days, even with cell phones. So I always suspect that the reason for not posting good pictures is because there is something they don't want you to see.
Hmmm? I never thought about a consulting gig, but now that I am retired, maybe I'll look in to it.
Wow! Great job on this build!
...I want that engine
Looking sharp, as always, Troy!
That is one wonderful looking Speedster Troy. It's times like this when I wish I could own two of them.
Incidentally, do you mind telling us were you found those neat looking rubber bumper guard grommets?
To the casual eye they look like early beetle bumper grommets...
Early or late, I don't know, but they are Empi off the shelf and I just cut off the back portion so they lay flat. Easy peezy and they do look great.
There are two or three different lengths of the grommets depending on year.
Troy builds a good Speedster. Enjoy that first drive.
Congrats, Seth. Welcome to the Madness!
Congratulations Seth. Enjoy the ride.
That speedster looks great! I'm very happy that it will be in the Bay Area so I'll be able to see it.
We need to get together for a ride Seth.
Congratulations Seth! and WTTM!
Congrats, Seth; I'm sure you'll be very happy with one of Troy's creations.
That shaped bumper grommet came in 2 lengths. And yes, those are early (to '67) grommets. '68- '73(?) grommets are longer (and slightly wider?) for the more substantial bracket and slightly bigger bumper, and '74 and on used the tubular telescoping brackets and (iIrc) used a triangular shaped grommet.

Interesting that what makes this car, and a lot of outlaws so cool is what is taken away from original and not what is added.
