This replica of a 1955 Porsche 356A Speedster was ordered as a kit from Fiberfab International and was assembled by the original owner in 1989. It remained in his collection until it was acquired by the selling dealer in March 2022. The fiberglass body is finished in red and fitted over a Volkswagen Beetle chassis, and power comes from a 2,164cc flat-four paired with a four-speed manual transaxle. Features include black leather upholstery, a black convertible soft top, dual carburetors, crank windows, lap belts, and a JVC cassette stereo. Service in preparation for the sale is said to have included rebuilding the carburetors and replacing the brake master cylinder. This Speedster replica is now offered by the selling dealer in New York with a tonneau cover, manufacturer’s literature, build records, and a clean New Jersey title listing the car as a 1989 reconstructed vehicle.
Styled after a Porsche 356A Speedster, the car features a fiberglass body finished in red with chrome trim. Exterior details include body-color bumpers, chrome overriders and impact strips, dual mirrors, a single grille on the engine lid, Porsche-style badging, and quadruple exhaust outlets.
Chrome 15″ steel wheels are mounted with 165-series Pirelli Cinturato P3 tires. The brake master cylinder is said to have been replaced in preparation for the sale.
The cabin features bucket seats upholstered in black leather with a red and black dashboard pad and red carpets. Equipment includes crank windows, lap belts, a wood shift knob, and a JVC cassette stereo.
The wood-rimmed steering wheel sits ahead of VDO instrumentation including a central tachometer, a 150-mph speedometer, and gauges for fuel level and engine temperature. The five-digit odometer shows 11k miles, though true chassis mileage is unknown.
The 2,164cc flat-four was built by Bernie Bergmann of Escondido, California, and features a forged counter-weighted crankshaft, a high-performance camshaft, hydraulic lifters, a lightened flywheel, a Bosch distributor, open-element air cleaners, and dual Dellortos carburetors. The carburetors are said to have been rebuilt in preparation for the sale.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transaxle. Additional underside photos can be viewed in the gallery.
Manufacturer’s literature, a tonneau cover, and build records accompany the car.
