1955 Porsche Speedster Replica


Are you ready for some ‘FUN-FUN-FUN’ this summer? Good, because I have the perfect car for summer cruising!

Red Hills Rods & Classics’ is happy to offer you this absolutely gorgeous 1955 Porsche Speedster Replica recently completed by Alan Merklin, a builder known for building top-quality Speedster Replicas. Every possible upgrade was included in the build w/ no boxes left unchecked. With only 185 kilometers driven since completion, you are basically getting a brand new Speedster! The body, deck lid, and bonnet were precisely aligned for 3/16” margins, the body was sanded, epoxy sealed/primed and then finished in a slick GM Onyx Black paint. It was then color sanded & machine buffed to a lustrous shine. The convertible top, side-curtains & quarter boot cover are in matching black Stay Fast Hartz Cloth.

The body sits on an original 1967 VW swing-axle chassis completely refurbished w/ OEM quality floors and features: adjustable ride height axle beam, tie rods, ball joints, stock VW sway bar, steering damper, steering box, pitman arm, OEM VW Beetle fuel tank, 4-wheel disc brakes, oversize master cylinder, & OEM emergency brake. The electrical items include: Vintage Speedster’s 8-circuit VS wiring harness, additional fused headlight & wiper switches, 356 reproduction gauges, OEM style headlight buckets & bezels, OEM style front turn signals, OEM style tail lights, OEM license light w/ reverse light, & front-mounted battery.

The beautiful black interior package is from Vintage Speedster (dash brow, dash vinyl, seats, door panels, door top rails, shifter & emergency boot) and features all possible upgrades including: OEM style ivory knobs, ivory banjo steering wheel, replica dash badge, and VW Beetle OEM steering column w/ reproduction turn signal switch. The interior is extremely comfortable and the seats are fully adjustable to fit any size man or woman.

Powering this awesome Speedster is a 1915cc motor featuring: dual carburetors, Engel 110 camshaft, upgraded heads, solid lifter camshaft, chrome molly push rods, electronic ignition, polished generator, crank case breather box system, faux Porsche oil can filter, & header exhaust. The VW swing-axle gearbox includes a 4.12 ring & pinion, 1700 Lb. Kennedy clutch bearing set, shift rod bushing & coupler. She sits on 4-bolt 15” wheels w/ chrome Porsche Rally wheel covers and extra set of Porsche baby moon caps, for switching up the look. This ’55 Porsche Speedster Replica fires up quickly, idles smoothly, and runs/drives beautifully in every way! It is an absolute BLAST to drive and gets more attention than you can imagine! Talk about a big BANG for the buck! She is titled as a 1967 VW Beetle so registration & insurance is no problem whatsoever.

There is no other classic vehicle that you can buy in this price range that will give you this much pleasure! With such an authentic look & feel such as this, why spend $300,000 or more when you can spend under $30,000 and enjoy yourself to the fullest!
