This 1955 Beck 550 Spyder gives you all the fun of an Italian sports car at the kind of affordable price that will never make you nervous to enjoy it to the fullest. So dig into the details of a well-done total package that\'s just begging to hit the road.
Formed in fiberglass instead of alloys, this replicas intention is having a lightweight race-bread car. So you\'re already attracted to this one just for its quality. The finish work on the body is exceptionally nice on this 2003 build. It\'s had a careful life so far that allows the silvery blue paint to really pop as the light showcases the slippery curves of this true icon. And you\'ll love the detail work with the correct low-cut windshield, Mangel polished wheels, and the racing gas cap that proudly sits in the middle of the hood. And the color-matched dual headrest fairing reminds you that you can share this special replica with someone special.
The red interior is pure sports car cool, and it\'s nicely detailed inside on the door full carpeting, door panels, headrests, and classic buckets seats. So while this does come with a folding roof and side curtains, we really know you\'ll always want to share this bold style with the world. The wood-rimed steering wheel has a classic look, and there\'s also a red leather version that comes with the sale, too. The extra clean dash is exactly what you want on a Spyder, and the full VDO gauge package has the tach properly in the center. This is a driver\'s machine, and you utilize the accelerator and shifter to dial-in that perfect open road soundtrack from the air-cooled engine.
Quality engineering is what made the 550 Spyder a legend, and this replica really takes that sprit to heart. The motor is correctly position so most of the weight is ideally towards the center of the car. The hardy VW-based 2160cc flat-four has been upgraded with a dual Weber carb setup. Plus, the motor also features 37x42mm valves, a 2288 camshaft, and 1:4 rocker arms. It delivers lively power in a lightweight package, and you have complete control over this mighty motor thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. This feels nice out on the road with an upgraded chassis, front disc brakes, and modern Bridgestone Potenza performance tires.
This is the awesome 550 Spyder replica done to a high-quality standard. So if you thought this icon was always going to be out of reach, don\'t miss this opportunity. Call today!!!
