Seller's Notes

UP FOR SALE IS ANOTHER RARE CONVERTIBLE SPORTS CAR FROM DS|MOTORS...
THIS ONE IS A GLAMOROUS 1955 PORSCHE 550 SPYDER REPLICA!
WITH A HARD TO FIND RICH GRAY EXTERIOR OVER A MATCHING DARK TAN LEATHER INTERIOR. A VERY RARE COLOR COMBINATION FOR THIS MODEL.
IT IS MOUNTED ON FIBERGLASS BODY PANELS OVER A TUBULAR STEEL FRAME CHASSI. POWER UNIT COMES FROM A CC TYPE 1.8 FLAT FOUR ENGINE, PAIRED WITH A 5 SPEED MANUAL TRANSXLE, WHICH IS MORE THAN ENOUGH POWER TO MOVE THIS LIGHT WEIGHT RACER. VEHICLE IS FINISHED WITH SPORT TYPE STEERING WHEEL, RACING ALUMINUM PEDALS, RACING ENGINE COVER HOOKS, PORSCHE BADGES AND ROLLOVER BARS. ALSO INCLUDES A COVER COVER.
COMES WITH 4 NEW TIRES MOUNTED ON 17" FACTORY PORSCHE WHEELS.

VEHICLE COMES WITH A CLEAN FL TITLE.

BY 1953, PORSCHE HAD BEEN SUCCESSFUL RACING ITS 356, BUT UNDERSTOOD IT WOULD NEED A TRUE PURPOSE-BUILT RACE CAR TO COMPETE AT MOTORSPORT'S HIGHEST LEVELS. THE RESULTING DESIGNS, THE 550 SPYDER, AND ITS SUCCESSORS THE 550A AND 718, BECAME SOME OF HISTORY'S MOST IMPORTANT RACE CARS, SCORING NOT ONLY CLASS VICTORIES BUT SIGNIFICANT OVERALL WINS. AT JUST OVER 1,200 POUNDS, THE 550 SPYDER WAS INCREDIBLY AGILE AND ITS ADVANCED FOUR-CAM ENGINE MEANT IT WAS QUITE POWERFUL RELATIVE TO ITS WEIGHT. THE DESIGN'S BRILLIANCE WAS APPARENT FROM 550-001'S VERY FIRST RACE, WHEN HELMUT GLÖCKLER PROVED VICTORIOUS AFTER FIGHTING UNRELENTING RAIN IN HIS METHANOL-FUELED SPYDER AT NÜRBURGRING IN 1953- THAT SAME YEAR, 550-001 AND O02 TOOK SIGNIFICANT CLASS VICTORIES AT LE MANS, THE CARRERA PANAMERICANA, AND THE BUENOS AIRES 1000 KM.
""COME SEE THIS ONE WITH YOUR OWN EYES"".
