I have a chance to build a one-off 904 with racecarreplicas. I bought this car instead of building one knowing that Fran Hall would eventually build a 904. Fran is ready to go (about a year before I expected). While I am not quite done enjoying this car, my wife won't let me have 4 toys. This is a hell of a lot of car for the money. I don't expect to sell before spring - I thought that I would post just in case someone is anxious to get a car.
So with regret, I am putting the 550 up for sale. I bought this one in March of last year. I made the following changes:
removed the gumball numbers;
added a removable roll bar (Fran at RCR);
Had the car tuned to improve cold start (Fran at RCR);
added some frame stiffening in the engine compartment (Fran at RCR);
added a muffler (Fran at RCR);
It is a 2004 Vintage Spyder.

Fran Hall is familiar with the car - call him for an unbiased view.
Also search on username "Frankbank" - he was the original owner.
E-mail me with questions. Thanks.
