This sporting 1958 356A T2 1600 Speedster is finished in its original livery; a desirable shade of Silver Metallic (5706) over an unusually rare green leatherette interior. The stunning combination is a must see. According to a copy of the Porsche issued Certificate of Authenticity, the new Speedster was built on November 11th, 1957, and optioned with sealed beam headlights, speedometer in miles, and USA bumpers.
The previous owner purchased the speedster in Phoenix, Arizona, in 1974 from a gentleman who had just relocated from California. At the time of purchase, the car was wearing black paint over a black interior. After a number of years, the owner decided to treat the car to an extensive restoration. The car was disassembled and stripped before being brought back to its original shade of Silver Metallic. The interior was completely re-trimmed in the original shade of green and a new black top was fitted. The mechanics were also gone through and the engine was disassembled and rebuilt. The engine and chassis tub wear the correct numbers which match the COA however, the number appears as though they may have been re-stamped at some point.
A superb example of one of the most iconic and desirable sports cars ever produced, this Speedster is ready to be used and enjoyed by it next owner. While examples of Porsche's legendary Speedster can be found, it is not often that they come from such lovingly long term ownership in such a special color combination.
