As the name suggests, the 359 is the blending of Porsche 356 Speedster silhouette with elements from the 959 coupe.

The 359 is a unique fiberglass creation came from the mind of Classic Motor Carriages – once one of the world's largest kit car producers.

Inside this one gets right down to business with a pair of sporty bucket seats. The black carpet, door panels, and dash all have a nice deep, dark quality of a good sports car. You get all the right elements for a fun driving experience, including a leather-wrapped three-spoke sports steering wheel, full VDO gauge package, and the gearshift that's close enough for spirited performance. There's an AM/FM/cassette stereo mounted below the dash, which means you can always create the perfect atmosphere around your roadster.
The 1600 cc VW flat-four lives under the rear deck, and it even has been dressed nicely with plenty of brightwork. It fires up as reliably as you know VWs should, and of course, it makes that unmistakable air-cooled soundtrack. The trusty motor moves the lightweight roadster with ease, and the four-speed manual transmission gives you complete control. But the best reason for having this based on a Beetle is that maintenance is a breeze. You have an extensive and affordable catalog of repair and performance parts available. The VW's lively suspension works especially well with the low-slung roadster bodywork, and the large 17-inch alloys have new Dunlop performance rubber for excellent grip.
Complete with the original build manual, something so complete, unique, and affordable doesn't come along every day. That's why if you enjoy the memorable vehicles, you need to hurry and call today! VIN # is T000215.
