1600 CC motor and the car had export equipment (chrome package).
The late legendary Porsche 356 Speedster has been in my collection since 2020. It was one of the many vehicles sold through the dealership of Max Hoffman in New York. It was exported back to Europe more than 20 years ago and had been in a car collection until it arrived to a Danish car collector, from whom I bought it.
It is the T1 model with the twin round taillights (instead of the teardrop style) and some other minor differences in interior and exterior.
It is a 1955 model year, but unfortunately not with the original engine from when the car was born. It was very common to change the engine to one with slightly more hp, and my car has been installed with the 1600 CC 1958 (Porsche 356A) engine, which gives a smoother drive and some more hp compared with the original 1500 CC engine.
The car is very original in suspension, body and interior, and the same colour combination as when the vehicle was brand-new: silver grey with black leather on the Speedster seats.
It is a dream to look at, to sit in and to drive on a sunny day with the top down.
Note - that this is an “emergency” top in case of rain. It is built exclusively for open road use.
