1957 Porsche 356 Additional Info:

This is the world famous 1957 Speedster that was featured in the Coker Tire booth at the 2015 Sema Show. It is a full custom car. This is a 1 of 1.,You will never find another one anywhere else in the world. This is a frame off build. Every part on this car was custom made specifically for this car. This vehicle has received recognition from world famous Porsche builder Rod Emory. Many people said this was their favorite car of the Sema show, nd those that have been to Sema, now that is a very difficult task to accomplish, s Sema has the best cars in the world displayed each year.
We spend 4 months doing bodywork, o get the body laser straight, nd body gaps to look better than the original. As you can see in the pictures, o expense was spared in any department. The body was painted Audi Nardo Grey with a lighter shade of gray for the stripe on the fender and the wheels. These wheels are prototype 1552 Magnus Walker earlys. This was the first set they made in these sizes. The wheels are powdercoated for a long last, nd also pinstriped by a world famous pinstriper. The body also received minor pinstriping to magnify some of the cars details. It is very tastefully done, nd not overkill. The tires are brand new Firestone vintage tires, hich compliment the overall look and feel of the car.
As for the Engine, e started with a brand new block, nd it wasbuilt out to a 1915cc with 160 horsepower, ore than double the original horsepower. It includes but not limited to 48 idas, ssembled by JAYCEE out or Santa Ana, a. All of the visible engine parts have either been painted, owdercoated, r anodized. It looks like a work of art., he complete firewall, ncluding the Deck lid are leather wrapped. The engine was mated to custom headers, nd one off exhaust built by A1 Perfomance specifically for this car.
All suspension and brake items are brand new, s is every part of this car. The suspension received the best of everything, nd rides excellent. The alignment is spot on, nd feels like a modern car. No pieces are left raw or polished. Everything has either been chromed, r gold plated. There are lots of detailed hand engraved pieces, n the windshield frame, he steering wheel, nd also the gas cap. It has one off quarter windows, ith a ghost Porsche logo, nd has been engraved as well.
Interior-This is truly the highlight of the vehicle. 7 Hydes of real Italian leather was used. The same leather found in the Pagani Huayra, r Pagani Zonda. Nothing in the interior is off the shelf, r factory. The seats were custom made for this car, nd the rest of the parts were either CNC machined, r handcrafted from scratch. Budnik made a one off steering wheel for it. The Vintage suitcases are inspired by the Mercedes Gullwing, nd house a Mcintosh Stereo amplifier, s well as JL audio subwoofers which are hidden . It has an Alpine Bluetooth Ipod CD player, hich is hidden, o preserve the classic look. The door panels were hand made, hich includes a custom wood pocket, rapped in leather, n both sides. The seats were also inspired by the Pagani. The shifter is a Black Mamba, hat has been chromed, nd the hand brake is a one off, o resemble the 550 spyder style. The pedals are completely hand built as well, ith holes in it to resemble the shifter, he steering wheel, nd the handbrake, or an "outlaw"look.
Under the Bonnet, s a hand made gas tank, hat looks like a suitcase. It took months to make, nd looks incredible. It has a few LEDS for nighttime viewing. The gas tank was custom built to come through the bonnet of the car. It is visible, hen the bonnet is down, nd the one off engraved gas cap is visible from the outside. Everything is fully functional, nd works great.
There are no VW parts on the car, verything was purchased through sierra made, he fog lights are authentic Marchal fogs, nd the bumper trim is hand made, and laid aluminum, hich has been chromed. These bumpers are not available for sale. The car is missing nothing. The door handles are custom outlaw style, t does have a soft top which works great, nd is burgundy.
The vehicle sits on a 1964 Beetle reinforced chassis, ith all new floors, ew freeway flier transmission, hino lined from top to bottom, o protect from corrosion for many years to come. The chassis was reinforced to handle the extra power that this car makes. The sound from the muffler is intoxicating, ithout being too loud, nd is an absolute blast to drive. The car also has very expensive Vintage Heuer stopwatch gauges on the dash.
The vehicle comes with Black CA legacy Plates which reads "OUTLAWD"We have invested just over $100,000 into the car, lus 3000 hours of labor to get it to loo, eel, nd sound the way it does., t was truly a labor of love. It is safe to say, hat you will never see another one like this, VER. This car is perfect for the local cars and coffe, drive down PCH, r can be used daily, f you so desire.
