Auction ends Wednesday, August 8, 2018 at 1:09 PM. Not quite the original but still a lot of fun. Salvage titled as a 1969 VW, seller says this kit car has a VW 1600 motor, 4-speed transmission and is a great cruiser. Not clear when the kit car was built but we know Classic Motor Carriages folded in 1994. Includes nice high back bucket seats with red stitching, rear seat, like new convertible top, new brakes and solid undercarriage. Paint looks shiny and interior looks to be in good shape.
Automobili Intermeccanica of Santa Ana, CA was the largest manufacturer of Speedster car kits in the 1970’s. In 1979 one of the partners bought the other’s share and sold the Speedster project to Classic Motor Carriages of Miami, FL. CMC produced a number of kit cars and was eventually sued by 900 of its customers for misleading advertising. The allegations focused on the ease of assembling the kit car. Once built, many customers reported a satisfactory product. The $2.5 million compensation eventually led to the closure of CMC in 1994. This 1969 Porsche 356 Speedster is for sale in Olathe, Kansas.
