Where to search for a Spyder?

Postby Spydey » Sun Jul 22, 2018 12:29 pm

Hi all. New here, looking for a 550 Spyder.

Wondering about any sites that I may be missing?

I’m checking out 1)the classifieds here, 2)BAT, 3)EBay, 4)Hemmings.

Any other good spots? And, any members here in the Philadelphia area? I’d love to check out your car and pick your brain.

Thanks!

I think you've got it pretty well covered. Look for a well sorted car with most of the options that you want. Or at least the expensive ones like switching to wide 5 wheels if that's important to you. They're great fun. If you ever get to LAX you get a ride and one owner's opinions.

Check Speedsterowners.com as well.

I'm in Hudson Valley NY, about 60 miles North of NYC, if you want to check out mine.

I have a Beck Spyder here in Blair County, PA, which isn’t all that far from Bucks County, PA, where I was born and raised.
I’d be happy to talk to you and perhaps meet to show you my Beck Spyder and discuss all the experiences I’ve had with it.

If I were you I'd call Vintage Spyders and Special Edition.

Try to see any Spyder you're serious about in person. Or a trusted knowledgable person as a substitute. They all look great in photos, it's the details and closeups that make the difference.
