Beck Speedsters are built on a special fabricated tube frame chassis. if you use the jacking points, under the doors, to jack up a Beck Speedster you can open and close the doors without damage to the car. This is not so with Speedster replicas made from used VW frames. Open a door on one those while the car is jacked up and the frame will bend.
Okay, so why this buy this particular Speedster ?
Several reasons. Money. An authentic 1957 Speedster, that looks as nice as this one, would cost you about 4 times as much money. Slow. A real one has a 1500cc engine with just 60 hp, while this one has a 1915cc engine and 125hp and is also smog exempt in CA! Paint. the paint color on this car is practically identical to the factory's Pasha red back in 1957. No one seems to have the exact color code for Pasha Red today, but this car is painted in BMW merlot, which is extremely close to the photos of Pasha red. The interior is all leather with VDO Instruments, which are genuine and period correct. Nardi Steering Wheel as well with matching shft knob. We can go on and on with upgrades and the outstanding craftmanship on the vehicle. In closing, if you are looking for just a run of the mill Speedster replica this probably isn't the car for you. You can buy one of the VW-based kit cars for $15K. However, if you want the absolute best 356 series Speedster, without spending six-figures for an authentic car, you can't do better than this car! Smog exempt SB 100 California !!
