Yes I spoke with the current owner, I got that speedster 2/3rds assembled  from a friend in NJ " Brian" who's health was failing some years ago.  I filled in the current owner with what I could remember about that car. It is a beautiful speedster and has 3/16" aluminum floors too.

Wow.  Read the ad.  Alan's builds now have provenance.  

"Provenance (from the French provenir, 'to come from/forth') is the chronology of the ownership, custody or location of a historical object.[1] The term was originally mostly used in relation to works of art but is now used in similar senses in a wide range of fields, including archaeologypaleontologyarchivesmanuscripts, printed books and science and computing."

And now Merklin speedsters.

A Porsche COA has just lost its lustre...

@Alan Merklin- Do you remember who (what company) built the body?

Not off hand but what I do remember is the thick fiberglass and that the shop that had a multitude of hours into the blocking and sanding.  The body work and paint shows as high end and they charged Brian a small fortune for that quality.

I see by the thread title it's a VS. The reason I asked- when I looked at the ad, the 3rd pic (it's above) the car looks about level (front & rear wheelwells, side trim all look right) but look at the angle of the deco strip under the door and how it's angled down toward the front- the door looks out of proportion- seriously narrower at the back vs the front. Am I seeing something that isn't there? I went downstairs and a quick measure of the passenger door on my car shows maybe 1" difference front to back.
