Porsche 356, Porsche 359 | Fri, 15 Jun 2012 Posted by : Donnie
Is it me or are more and more of these Porsche Speedster Replicas popping up lately? I have always liked them and it is on my bucket list, but they are all over eBay. I know a Classic Motor Carriages made 1000s of these, but where are these all coming from. Could it just be that people need the money so they are finally getting rid of them?
Here are a few I found while searching the bay today..
1955 Porsche 356 – Location: NY
1973 Replica/Kit Makes Porsche 356A Type1 1957 – Location: NY
1957 356 Vintage Speedster Replica Great sound system!! – Location: AZ
What would you guys pay for one of these in decent shape?

Alan‘s “359 Speedster” (356 meets 959) was the 202nd made by CMC, so he writes that there must have been at least that many, plus the ones that Thunder Ranch later built — one just sold on eBay to a guy in Calgary for $2,500 he says.

Ed (near Toronto, Canada) built this Porsche 356, to the best of my knowledge fully from scratch (well, the body but that’s what most people on a classic-oriented kitcar site are most interested in I dare to say). It’s on a VW chassis (and titled as a Beetle) with 1200cc engine. After Ed developed health problems (and storage space) the car was sold for about $4,000, which included a rebuilt transmission and matching 1600cc engine.

Gary in Seattle sends in these photos of his 356 Speedster finished in 1988 after 18 months of construction — everything was taken apart, fixed up, and put back together. Among many other mods, it’s got a 2110cc engine with nitrous… VDO gauges, disc brakes, and on and on and on until about $25,000 was invested, resulting in a long series of show trophies. It’s also a daily driver, not that Seattle lets you have a daily driver with no real roof, ha…
Above are some pictures as the car looks now, and below are some pictures of the construction.
