This is an exceptional car. Even if you don’t care for replicas, you have to appreciate a well-sorted Beck Speedster. I enjoyed this car quite a bit this past fall, and I particularly enjoyed the freedom of driving a car that isn’t so precious (as the original Speedsters). It looks the part to all but the most knowing afficionato. These cars are great and look just like the real thing.
Alas, it is time to move the car to a new home, and someone is going to get a nicely sorted ride. I got this car from a friend who is perhaps the best person from which to get the car.
He kept meticulous records of all the maintenance he did since he acquired it in from Beck in August of 2013. It was built in 2008 and first sold in 2009, purchased from Beck new, then traded-in and Beck/Special Edition sold it next to my friend, with 5900 miles. The car now shows 20,454 miles (32,918 KM on the odometer).
She has a strong 1915 CC twin carb VW engine that was built by CB Performance (great builder) with a performance exhaust and a freeway flyer transaxle for a more favorable highway ride. Disk brakes are present in front, with drum brakes in back.
Extra gauges, tonneau, side curtains, fire suppression system, Nardi steering wheel, and air conditioning round out the features, but frankly, all the Becks I have driven are great products and this one is no exception. Jump in and drive this car cross-country tomorrow. It’s a great car that was well-built and well cared-for by the prior owner.
Give a call if you want to bring “Rebecka” home. The car is titled as a 1957 Charmonix, and can be registered and titled anywhere in the world.
