(SOLD) This vehicle is an original unmolested example. This speedster has matching numbers. It has small California pink slip. Restoration was started approximately 25 years ago and was put away in dray storage.


This vehicle had minor cosmetic changes since the 1956 Porsche Speedster. It was know for the simplistic design which came to known as the "Bath Tub." Because it looks like a bath tub upside down. Classic Showcase purchased this vehicle to restore to its original condition using original parts and their high quality craftsmanship. Our goal is to restore this vehicle back to its original condition and give the new collector the option of a show car or a driver. This is the finest original example that we have ever come across over 30 years of specializing in European vehicles. The vehicle was taken down to bare metal, re-painted and buff. Engine, suspension, fuel system, braking system, and instrument was completely rebuilt.
