I had bought this Posche 911 Cabrio as a donator for engine, wheels and interior for another project
http://skidsplace.forumotion.com/t4508-vw-samba-custom-triple-cab-pickup#66981



The windscreen was messed up and the frame cracked. I had the engine and wheels from the Samba Bus, so i wanted to make something out of that. Without windscreen my only option seemed to make a speedster. 911 and the narrow bus wheels made no good combination, but i discovered that the bodies of 356 and 911 do not have big differences, just a bit wider and longer. decision was made: a 356 speedster it should to be. And after a bit of research i found a nice road legal vintage race car replica i wanted to make.



It was great fun to backdate the body and scratch built missing items using my parts box. And i deppdished the Bus rims to make them look wider.

Nice color combo. Way to re-purpose the left over parts.
