1955 Porsche 356A Speedster 1500S, Matching Numbers & Original Rudge Alloys Wheels
Introduced in late 1954, the Porsche 356 Speedster was deliberately designed as a dual-purpose sports car , one that could serve as both daily transportation and with little modification a successful weekend race car.
This 356 Speedster is one of only 141 examples originally specified with the high-performance type 528/2 engine, more commonly known as the 1500 Super. In total Porsche only built 650 Super Speedsters between 1954 and 1958, accounting for just 16% of the entire production.
Constructed on June 28, 1955, this Speedster is a “Pre-A” example which can be immediately distinguished from the later A-series cars by its two-gauge instrument cluster, push-button starter, and other special early-production features.
This 356 Speedster was treated to an extensive cosmetic and mechanical restoration. It retains its original floors as well as its serial-numbered body panels. It is beautifully detailed throughout.
The mileage displayed is believed to be correct, however cannot be verified.
