Porsche 356A Speedster 1600 T1, year 1957. Colour black with a red leather interior, beige carpet and a black soft top.
This Porsche 356A Speedster is super original and it is in superb condition! Matching numbers.
The car was imported to Europe from the USA in the year 1997. The first part of it's life the car lived in the dry desert area of Colorado. After being imported to Europe the car was kept in a heated and air-conditioned garage.
The body of this Speedster is built to the early T1 specifications (the bows of the soft top are 3.5 centimetres lower than the later T2 specification cars).
This Porsche 356 Speedster is one of the last T1 models ever built. At the same time it is one of the first Speedsters fitted with the more powerful 1600 "S" engine. This body/ engine combination is the most sought after package.
What makes this speedster very special is the fact that the body never had to be restored, the body is 100% original, never welded and absolutely perfect thanks to the dry climate of Colorado! Almost all Porsche Speedsters which were delivered new to North America and Europe suffered rust problems and must have undergone expensive and difficult body restorations by now. The body restoration of a Porsche 356 is a tough job which has to be carried out with utmost care by an experienced professional. A small mistake during the body restoration results in deformation, in the end a poor panel fit is the result.
This Porsche Speedster shows perfect factory original panel fit and crisp body lines!

This Porsche Speedster was serviced and maintained perfectly. A few years ago the body became new black paint and a new black soft top was fitted. Now the car is in superb, beautiful original condition.
This Speedster is sold including a separate European (km/h) speedometer, the original toolset and the original spare wheel.
A Porsche Speedster in this incredibly original condition is almost impossible to find; a true opportunity for the Porsche collector.
