Exciting Discovery of a Final Year T2 Speedster

Numbers-Matching Engine and Transmission

Recent Major Service and Detailing Completed

Originally Delivered in 5705B Fjord Green / Tan

Offered with Porsche Kardex & Porsche Certificate of Authenticity

Conceived to meet a specific price point, t was a Spartan purpose-built sporting machine with minimal equipment and no needless accoutrements. Speedstersincluded 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. With the reduced weight from the elimination of many trim items, hese rakishly designed models are even more exciting and fun to drive.

Presented here is an exciting final year T2 Speedster, ompleted on the 1st of September 1958, earing 5705B Fjord Green over Tan upholstery and destined to Hoffman Motors in New York. Today it displays an aged repaint in red which was applied decades ago when having a red sports car was the fad. The red paint was applied directly over the factory Fjord Green paint which can be seen throughout in areas of wear. The interior remains original and has held up well showing a nicely aged patina. After years of enjoyment the car was stowed away in a California garage decades ago until this year, hen it was acquired from its long-term caretaker. Here in Houston, he Speedster was brought back up to roadworthiness with a comprehensive mechanical tune-up addressing the brakes, uel system including removal and relining of the fuel tank, gnition, lectrical and carburation systems.

The vehicle's undercarriage is largely original, side from the battery tray which was replaced. Power is provided by a solid, enith carbureted numbers-matching engine and transmission. Correct drum brakes covered by 4½ x15"1957 date coded wheels and moon caps suit accordingly. Weather equipment includes the original black cloth top with original side curtains. The body # "375"which matches the last three digits of the VIN number are found stamped on the rear deck lid and doors. The original jack, ool roll and 11/57 dated spare with its original Michelin tire accompany the Speedster. This great Porsche is ideal to use in a variety of ways including driving events and vintage rallies or would make a great base to return it back to its original Fjord green color, he body and gaps are straight and consistent throughout.

A 356 Speedster has become a must have for any serious collection and qualifies for numerous touring events around the world. Original "Matching-Numbers"examples are increasingly difficult to find making this car one of very few available globally. We encourage serious consideration of this example and are happy to set up inspections or answer any questions.

A true highlight of our summer "Lost and Found"offerings.
