1955 Porsche Speedster 1600 Super
Spotted in Boulder, Colorado is a 1955 Porsche Speedster 1600 Super for $239,500 USD. This Pre-A body car #80379 comes with a 356C engine with NPR1720 “C” Cam and Zenith Cams. The engine has only 4500 miles since its rebuild and leak down test shows under 2% on all cylinders. The seller states it has an updated 741 transaxle with late synchros. Outer body shell is pretty solid with forged welds at rear of fender to door. Complete Shell appears collision free with all original panels. Lumpy paint prep on a 40 year old “Earl Sheib” orange/red paint. New top, original decos, front bumper has good fit, rear bumper appears a bit flat in the center and wide at the quarters. Front battery box is OEM but will need replacement, as do rockers, jack posts, rear 1/2 pan. Front 1/2 is decent, leading tunnel floor under tank and corner apex supports not rusty but appear damaged from poor jacking procedures. New tires on Brazilian wheels, unfortunate gray domestic carpet, new stay-fast top with headliner, Blaupunkt radio actually works. This is a non matching engine car that can be enjoyed as is or undergo a full restoration.
