Many enthusiasts regard the early Pre-A 356 Coupes as the among the most desirable of the range. 

With original Pre-A cars trading at £200k + Speedster Clinic have finally been able to respond to customers requests for Pre- A kits.

Built to the specification of a 1955 car, the Speedster Clinic offering accurately reflects every detail of Pre-A specification with specially sourced components and carefully crafted body shell.

Their appeal is difficult to fathom. After all, the later cars with their more sophisticated detailing, large screens and arguably better proportions can perhaps lay claim to an elegance that the Pre A cars lack. Yet the charm and simplicity of the Pre -A is perhaps more truly reflective of the essence of the concept. The pre-A still shows the traces of the transformation of simple VW mechanical components, in times of constraint and austerity, into the sophisticated GT that the 356 was to become.

As with all Speedster Clinic products robust construction and ease of assembly are essential features of the new kits. Pre A replicas are not currently being offered anywhere else in the UK, or indeed anywhere else in Europe, so Speedster Clinic look forward to strong demand from enthusiasts all across Europe.

All Speedster Clinic Pre-a GRP body shells are supplied in grey gel coat to fit shortened VW chassis.

The builders kit is just that, designed for people who want to build the entire car from scratch and have complete control over their build. The kit contains:

  • Speedster Clinic GRP body shell supplied in grey gel coat to fit shortened VW chassis.
