Single Seat Style: 1980 SSR1 Speedster

If you are going to drive something that looks like a vintage racer, you might as well get something that performs like a vintage racer, which isn’t like the latest turbocharged Caterham offering or one of those three wheeled Slingshot things. Cars from the golden age of the automobile were slow, even race cars, and there is nothing wrong with that at all. Find this 1980 SSR1 Speedster offered for $10,950 in Surprise, AZ via ebay.

From the seller:

Price just reduced !!! This Unique vehicle Must GO !!! One – of – a kind Toy, this Speedster was built in 1980, reportedly it achieved over 100-mpg! It shows 3,335 miles and comes equipped with a Honda 450-cc motorcycle engine with twin-carbs DOHC and a five-speed manual transmission. Hand-crafted, it took over a year to build and would cost in excess of $50,000 to replicate.
