Rickard put both the red speedster and the 550 on ebay, didn't sell for what he wanted. Searching the completed listings and you might find the highest bidder for the Spyder. Probably about the cheapest way to have one. Not sure what the reserve price was, maybe he set it high just to see what it would run to.
Here is my inspiration. Went with the Ghia but love the Spyder. This one was done awhile ago but done nicely. I talked with him about the car and I also talked to the guys at Thunder Ranch about the extra stuff they did and to Kennedy about the adaptor plate. Adaptor plates are available from other sources and building some extra frame work for the batteries should be within the realm of anyone with some decent welding experience. I have been considering the kit and then converting using lithium. Maybe someday. I have an extra Kostov like is used in this example of a fine Conversion. Lead batteries did not give much range but it was quick.
As usual, a short range lead sled. Cool looking and fun.
