West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely exceptional example of this southern California owners 1963 Porsche titled and custom ordered 1957 Porsche 356 Speedster Replica convertible in 'Burgundy/Maroon' exterior paint color with 'Camel/Tan' interior and matching Camel soft top and tonneau cover and with only some 7K original miles!

The car has a VW air cooled 1600cc 4 cylinder engine with only some 7K miles on it. The car has a 1963 Porsche title which represents the manufactured year of the original donor pan meaning the car is smog exempt.
 
The Porsche 356 replica originated in the 1970s with the original manufacturers using a shortened VW pan but not adequately reinforcing the body. This meant that these early examples were prone to body flex with improper body fittings and panel line-ups.
 
Eventually a few of the custom builders engineered a new type of structure beginning sometime in the late 1980's with a custom built jig welded 2x4 inch 11 gauge steel frame with an original VW pan restored, shortened and welded to the new steel skeleton. The rigid new structure retains the original VW pan designed by Dr Ferdinand Porsche and integrates the largest frame possible. Only these steel frame replica cars will pass the renown Jack Test which the original replicas would fail due to body flex.

The 'Burgundy/Maroon' color paint is in absolutely beautiful condition and the Camel interior is also in as new condition throughout with no signs of wear.

This particular model must be seen and driven to be fully appreciated - the car drives excellent - the engine is extremely strong and responsive, the transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the temperature always remains cool.
 
You will look long and hard to find a finer example of this 1957 Porsche 356 Speedster Replica with only 7,200 original miles for the ultimate in daily driving fun and ragtop summer cruising!
