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. Unfortunately at the
moment my vehicle doesn't look like the one in the photo above!
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.
