It is offered As-Is, not covered by a warranty. - 1957 Porsche 356A Speedster Chassis No. 83769 Engine No. 836117 (67 K Coupe - 616-36) Transmission: 714 with B Shift Mechanism Conceived to meet a specific price point, it was a Spartan purpose-built sporting machine with minimal equipment and no needless accoutrements. Speedsters included a revised windshield that significantly lowered the look of the car. A chrome strip down the side of the car was also added and gone were unnecessary items such as an effective top. Instrumentation had been reworked to have only three dials: a speedometer, an oil temperature, and an optional tachometer. With the reduced weight from the elimination of many trim items, these cars looked great and were even more exciting and fun to drive. Presented here is without a doubt the ultimate driver?s Speedster, while remaining true to early Porsche heritage. Show quality appeal coupled with extremely solid mechanicals, this particular 356 offers more power and performance unavailable in 1957. Ruby Red paintwork compliments a black vinyl trimmed cabin with proper German square weave carpeting and Coco mats over rubbers. All instruments have been rebuilt and calibrated. A Nardi wood rimmed steering wheel and shifter knob are pleasant accents. Weather equipment includes a High bow, Haartz cloth top with side curtains and full tonneau cover with half-zip for touring or open storage. The 356 still carriers its original floor pan and battery box. Tool kit, jack and spare accompany the Porsche. Performance is provided by a solid 1600cc motor build by Steve Schmidt in 1997 with Weber carburators and less than 10K miles on the powertrain. For better stopping ability, 356C Type? disc brakes were ideally retrofitted - covered by 5Ż x15? painted wheels and crested hub caps. The electrical system was also updated to a modern 12-volt with Optima battery, Y&Z wire loom and compatible lights, signals and switches. Past awards include concours judged 322.6 at the Central Coast Region 2007 Concours at the Coast and an Exterior 69.6-70 Interior 59.6- 60 during the 2009 Wash and Shine. A prime candidate for shows, tours, rallies and even vintage racing, this Speedster is an absolute thrill!
