This site details the construction of
my Martin & Walker Technic 550 Spyder; a replica of the famous
Porsche 550 Spyder as driven by James Dean.
The Technic 550 Spyder is a true mid
engined replica of the original car. It features a purpose made
chassis and suspension system.
The main source of mechanical
components is the VW Beetle 1302s although you can use other
Porsche or Alfa Romeo engines if you wish.
