Offered here is a limited driven example from enthusiast ownership - finished in a striking Midnight Black over Beige livery and well-equipped for immediate spirited driving. Boasting considerable power, along with a tubular chassis and adjustable suspension, the Beck Speedster is often considered among the finest, fittest, and most desirable reproduction Porsche 356 Speedsters available. Performance and drivability are noticeably greater on a Beck, for a fraction of the original Porsche model's values.

1132624135 is titled as a 1973 Volkswagen Speedster and comes equipped with all new weather equipment, including a black canvas top and matching side curtain with protective sleeve when stored, as well as a full-cab / half zip tonneau cover with supplemental stowage bag. In the summer of 2020 the Speedster received a oil/filter, dyno tune service and full detail with steam cleaning of the underside and engine compartment. Additionally, a new canvas soft top was installed. Built for boundless smiles and reliable vintage touring, we offer this outstanding Beck Speedster.
