How many Spyder replicas are out there?

Postby Spydey » Sun Aug 12, 2018 7:03 am

At shows or on roads, I’ll Speedsters, Cobras. Never Spyders (in Mid-Atlantic).

Got me wondering how many Spyder replicas there are? I’m guessing 50% of ones out there are Becks, 30% Vintage, 20% other.

Any thoughts?

You may never get a reasonable "count" of replica spyders over history. But your guess may have short-changed Beck/SE by a good 20% - 30% (my guess).

Yeah, I'd say there are a couple thousand, maybe three thousand Beck, then you have to add Chamonix(which are almost the same as Beck) in Brazil.

Maybe 700-1000 Vintage, Greg would know for sure. Then there are some Thunder Ranch.

Then you're into England and Australia. I don't count Perry(full uncut Beetle pan) or those ungainly Skoda-based ones.
