THE IM Speedster body is glassed to a steel perimeter TUBE CHASSIS...The IM6 frame is considerably more RIGID and an UPGRADE over the 4 cylinder models as the FRONT SUBFRAME is TWICE as long, in addition, it has a rear 3x2 SUBFRAME found ONLY on 6 cylinder models to facilitate the complete 911 FRONT/REAR suspension AND STEERING ( BILTSTEIN shocks and struts). Sway bars are all powder coated as are brake calipers.
This ICONIC 50'S Speedster is essentially a 911 TORQUE MONSTER in a luxuriously appointed 2300 pound car, sitting just a few inches off of the GROUND.
