The internet archive stores the HTTP response as it is received and
has a huge trove of results. However I don't know if it is available
for download and replay. The arc file format is documented here -
http://crawler.archive.org/articles/developer_manual/arcs.html

Some of their code is also available on github -

Also the HTTP archive that look at some of the top alexa ranked sites
has data available - http://httparchive.org/
