A Special Vehicle for Sale at Abreu Motors LLC
This vehicle could be the world's most perfect replica of the famous Porsche 550 race car of which only 90 original examples were produced from 1953-1956. It is the culmination of a three-year manifestation by a few Porsche enthusiasts with the greatest passion for these early cars. The high level of attention to even the smallest of details is unrivaled.
This car features the working components of a donor car, a 1960 Porsche 356B Coupe 1600 Super- including the original engine, gearbox, brakes, wheels and chassis number. No expense was spared on the restoration of every component. A master Porsche engine builder restored the motor with 1960 Porsche-spec parts at a cost of nearly $15,000. The transmission, wheels, brakes, lighting and other components were restored or purchased new and precisely fitted to a new chassis and body hand made at Vintage Spyders LLC, Stanton CA. Every step of this exacting restoration and creation is documented with all receipts, photographs and supplier sources.

A modern tube-frame chassis and a Bilstien “coil-over” adjustable suspension make for a comfortable ride.
