Description

This classic car is for sale on Catawiki. To have more information or to place a bid click on the "BID NOW" button. .Beautiful Porsche 356 Speedster 1600 Recreation, in beautiful mother-of-pearl, convertible, in very neat condition, with a German registration.

This beautiful Porsche 356 Recreation is built on the basis of a shortened VW Beetle chassis from 1960. The bottom was done correctly, with thick beams for stability. The bottom is neat and hard. The registration correctly mentions the conversion into a 356 Speedster. The inspection was carried out correctly by the official German authorities and is therefore valid for any admittance. Because the vehicle is 61 years old, it probably never needs to be inspected again!

This Speedster is a lovely touring car, it’s in neat condition. The car is equipped with an air-cooled VW engine, it sounds like a 356, a working gearbox, and it starts, drives and brakes as it should. Given its low weight, the car is easy and smooth.

The car was resprayed a few years ago in a unique mother-of-pearl colour. There are a few imperfections on the paint and on the top of the driver's door, see pictures. Unfortunately, there’s a small visible crack in the windscreen, all the way to the left. It is not annoying but worth mentioning (see photo). The interior was completely replaced at the time by a beautiful leather interior in the colour cognac. The high-quality interior looks impressive. All matching Porsche parts, from the wooden Nardi steering wheel, lying headlights to the new Porsche rims and hubcaps, are correct. The Porsche emblems on the sides and rims finish the car in great style.

A beauty of a car and a real collector’s item. This Speedster has the correct German registration including an entry of all previous owners. The Porsche Recreation is sold "as is" and no warranty applies on a private sale. The vehicle is in Delden (The Netherlands), a viewing appointment can be made via Catawiki. We wish you a lot of fun bidding on this car. Collection please within 14 days after the auction.
