Actor Kevin Dillon is on the search for a new ride,
one that will give him a nostalgic feel of old Hollywood.
Automotive Legends is where he will find this car,
a dealership known for its classic replica Spyders
and Speedsters. With both these cars famously linked
to legendary actor James Dean, Dillon has a hard choice
ahead of him. Will he choose the Speedster or Dean's
very last ride, the Spyder?
The 1955 Porsche Spyder is Kevin Dillon's choice, and
Fibersteel will create the replica Spyder of his dreams.
Salvaging parts from an old Volkswagen is the first
step in constructing this classic vehicle. From there,
fiberglass body panels and a historically accurate
chassis will be the car's foundation, soon to house
one powerful engine. Updated versions of the stylish
red seats begin to take shape, keeping with the vintage
appearance but using more modern materials.
The work continues at Fibersteel, where each aluminum
piece must be hand crafted before being installed in
the car. Brakes, headlights, and gauges are put into
place, along with detailed pieces that add to the nostalgic
feel of the car. The engine that will bring life to
this car is prepped and begins a slow decent to its
final resting place.
Final installations are under way at Fibersteel, with
the engine, safety gear, and steering wheel getting
locked into place. Red stripes and vintage emblems
finalize the car's authentic feel and a special touch
from Dean Jeffries makes this a true James Dean replica
Spyder. The only thing left to do is give the car to
Kevin and watch him drive away.
