Anyone know this car?

Postby karpems » Sun Nov 11, 2012 4:24 pm

Does anyone know this car? It is listed as a Vintage Spyder but I'm not sure. It has a unique exhaust and doesn't have the "slits" in the rear end side panels like others I have seen.

Thanks!

It looks like possibly a Perry or something but is absolutely not a Vintage.

It's not a Vintage.
Looks rear not mid-engined!
Might be home grown?

Yuck! Perry all the way. I could tell just from the front pic. Keep looking, if you want a closer shape, mid-engine, etc.......

I think it's one of these but looks bigger in the photo:

Okay, it's definitely a Perry D. Spyder. $6K for the kit plus a donor Beetle!

The Perry Ds, Inc. 550 Spyder is a Kit Car Builder's Dream. Mounting directly to a stock Volkswagen Beetle Chassis almost any skill level can accomplish this build with excellent results!
