Reutter Carosserie-Werke became known for building limousine bodies during the 1920s. In 1930 they started producing bodies for the Volkswagen Beetle, and in 1949 Porsche started using their bodies for their sports cars.
When operations moved to Stuttgart, it marked the beginning of a close working relationship with the nearby Reutter coachworks - to become the main supplier of Porsche bodies for nearly two decades, before being annexed into the Porsche organization.
It didn't take discerning auto enthusiasts very long to realize that these Reutter-bodied Porsches were built to a higher standard than could be found on vehicles from most competing nameplates. Reutter's exemplary workmanship was evident in the quality of components and in overall fit-and-finish.
Since 1987, Vintage Speedsters out of Hawaiian Gardens, CA has been producing outstanding high quality replicas of the classic Reutter bodied Speedster. GR Auto Gallery is proud to present this highly optioned example, which is outfitted with the 1600cc engine and 3.88 transmission. Other options include front disk brakes, full tonneau cover, light sand interior with padded seats, light sand soft top with windows, full carpeted interior, carpeted trunk, battery shutoff, headlight grills, chrome luggage rack, bumper guards, banjo steering wheel, and a single speaker Sony radio with power outlet.
With only 4,457 miles on the odometer, this cherry red beauty will have you reliably cruising to your favorite destinations in style. Why spend $200k+ when you can have more fun for a tenth of the price! With demand for these 356 Speedsters on the rise, this is surely a sound investment in fun and appreciation.
