This is a Beck 1955 550 Spyder replica. Widely considered to be the best of the Spyder kit cars, this one is powered by a 1776cc VW drive train. The original Spyder, made famous by James Dean, only had 100 horsepower. But the mid engine layout enjoyed much success in world sports car racing including several class wins at Le Mans. This car is owned and maintained by the Kemp Auto Museum.
