Market: Convertible D Roadster replicas were produced in very limited quantities by this replica car manufacturer. The cost of the rollup window, Speedster D kit was a very expensive upgrade over base Speedster kits. Due to the universally admired body style of this model, they are considered to have classic, timeless lines. The engine, frame, and leather interior is much better appointed then similar speedster replicas. This model in this condition are in great demand, and command premium prices well above more common Speedster replicas. Recently advertised, similar cars have been offered between $35,000 and $47,000. . This car will offer incredible driving fun at a fraction of the price of a real Convertible D, which typically sell for $120,000-225,000.
Description: Condition: Excellent overall condition. The Convertible D replica is an expensive upgrade from a standard, Speedster replica. The `D` has a much stronger and taller windshield frame and rollup windows and better, bolted on folding hardtop. Our `D` was professionally assembled by a professional VW mechanic. It features a very stiff, square tube steel frame and other structural stiffening that is a far cry from flimsy, VW pan replica chassis. It also has new, 4 wheel disk brakes, upgraded suspension, Panasport wheels and high performance tires, a Painless brand new wiring harness, Stock appearing, new leather seats, wood wheel and new guages. The car came with original, factory Dove grey finish, now professionally painted with beautiful Silver. The rollup window and `D` windshield frame and glass package sell for over $2,000 from the manufacturer. Complete assembly manuals are included. An expensive Bernie Bergman Built 2054cc custom VW-based engine is installed. (service to engine and carbs since appraisal)
