I'll second both Vintage Motorcars in Hawaiian Gardens, CA or Beck in Bremen, IN.  We've heard sad tales of other American builders and all of those stories are on here, so you can do a search on here for other so-called "builders" and judge for yourself.  There are a couple you should really avoid and they should become evident in your searches, too.

There is place in Atlanta that buys finished cars from Vintage Motorcars (I believe they might be a dealer for Vintage, but not sure) and they take the time to sort out any issues and then sell them problem-free for a $2K or so mark-up.  They might be an alternative for you, too.  

Maybe someone can help with a name for them and contact info.

Cloud 9 Classics in Alpharetta Georgia. Roy is the contact person there. They are the exclusive East Coast Dealer for Vintage Motorcars. The rep is on here and I believe it is @RoyP.

@Victorious @Robert M Robert is correct. I am the East Coast Dealer for Vintage Motorcars of CA and I would be more than happy to discuss the possibility of a custom new build in the colors/options of your choice. I would also be happy to share my experience of owning cars from all of the other builders other than the new Vintage Speedster company in AZ. I have owned cars from Beck, JPS, Intermeccanica,  the original Vintage Speedster and of course Vintage Motorcars of CA. I have owned Speedsters, Cabriolets, Coupes and Spyders. I am far from the expert but I have had the benefit of seeing and driving all of the builds and happy to share my experiences with you and anyone else who might be considering a purchase of one of these awesome cars.

I think you will get excellent advice from folks here on this forum as they are true enthusiasts and enjoy helping prospective new owners to join the madness!

Feel free to call me at 770-359-8400, or email me at roy@cloud9classics.com.  I have a couple of very low mileage used Speedsters about to hit the market I can tell you about as well.

.I saw one BARRETT JACKSON and I was so happy it was being built five blocks away in SCOTTDALE





I have a kIT car at home 52MGTDA IN Wisconsin. Justin is quite the salesman he sold it to Matt in the last two years.

I have quite a few things t.o say about it and none of them are positive so I would like you to just give me a call



Justin didn’t tell me that it was a garage queen and can only be looked at. I fell in love with the Shine Not knowing that it was assembled by some wanna be mechanics  



I have made it dozens of trips to Vintage AZ  As you know they are very hard to come by so they were making four or five of them when I was there two months ago  

The new owner Matt wrote me a check for $2000 for all the repair work that had to be done on the engine. I went from twin carburetors to a single carburetor. The externaoil cooler leak so bad that I have that removed and I am driving the car that F. Porsche designed.

My friend in town in Scottsdale on the black hardtop Speedster which never takes off the top. He said he had to check his brake fluid levels. And then it dawned on me that my brake fluid he’s not even visible. The people that if somebody wanted to save money and they have it tucked underneath where it originally was so you have to get on your hands and knees or  even a lift Check the brake fluid  

Watch for a post and a picture of my trunk. Does anybody else have a missing brake fluid reservoir  that can’t be seen















I live outside of Phoenix and I’ve never had a problem with it overheating and I drive it daily. 70 miles last week in the heat. And when I say heat I don’t drive it when it’s over 100°.
