Porsche 356 Speedster DAX Californian - MOT 2018 For Sale (1970)
|This is my Porsche 356 Speedster Replica|
It is a rare LWB
It is a californian (Wide Body)
The body was built by DJ Sports Cars - DAX (as in Cobra) in 1985.
It was built on a full length 1969 1500cc Volkswagen Beetle Chassis.
It is described as a Californian (Wide arches) but has also been custom stretched in the sills / doors (The car was stretched by DAX in 1985 when it was built)
It is a 3 seater as it was stretched to allow a rear seat for the original builders / owners son there is plenty of leg room in the back.
The car has 2 low backed bucket seats and also a single rear seat that has a seatbelt (We havent used it but I guess a child could use it? Or some one taller with the roof down. There is plenty of leg room in the front and back)
Its a 1980s Kit car don't expect it to be posh!
MOT to March 29th 2018
I have only done around 1300 miles in the year and a bit that I have had it...
It has Historic Road tax (Free)
It is correctly registered - the DVLA have been notified of the changes and decided to describe it as "1500 Convertible" on the V5. - I have copy paperwork correspondence that I have had with them.
It has a private number plate on it but originally had an "H" registration. It comes with the plate.
It has a completely standard 1500cc air cooled Beetle engine (Leaks some oil like they all do) and 1500 Gearbox.
There are Disc Brakes up front.
Tyres front and rear have lots of tread and the rears are HUGE!
Last year it has all new Flexi brake hoses, Front pads, rear wheel cylinders and shoes, engine service etc after having been off the road for around 15 years.
The roof is very good and was custom made for it.
The car starts, stops and drives and will make you smile.
With the headlight mesh grills, spot lights and Roll bar it has a bit of an outlaw look to it.
The stock 1500 engine sounds good (Fitted with Mondo Muffler) and the 1500 Gearbox works fine. With the large rear tyres it cruises effortlessly on the motorway.
There is even some heating in the car (VW Heat exchangers blowing into the foot wells)
The car has EMPI 5 spoke replica wheels (Fitted with adapters on the front)
The car is made of Fiberglass and needs bodywork to make it perfect. The paint has lots of tiny little bubbles in it and it needs general TLC to make it nicer or you can just use it as is... Like I have. It looks great from 10 foot, but if you get up close you can see the imperfections.
I had more jobs to do to it but have to sell it now as I just purchased a more expensive Chesil Speedster so my enthusiasm has now dwindled for this one.
This is a cheap Speedster - Valued at £12,500 to £15,000 by the Speedster and Spyder club last summer so I am asking less for a quick sale.
Its a one off LWB Speedster.
The enclosed photos were taken March 2017.
Please ask and I will send you lots of photos.
(Note: some of the photos show a wooden steering wheel - it now has a black one - sorry)
Don't ask for my best price - its rude. I've put a price on it.
Any serious buyer will come take a proper look at it.
I wont ship it anywhere. If you want it then you will come and get it.
It is a Drivable ongoing project, hence the price. There are things to do and tinker with.. there always will be!
The doors have some drop in windows that I made as a practice as the car didn't have any. They are not finished but keep most of the weather out.
You are welcome to ask questions - I will do my best to answer them..
