Description for Porsche 550 1955

The Porsche 550 Spyder is quite possibly the most recognizable competition-based car produced. Actively participating in the European and US Championships as early as 1953 to 1965, the 550 variants recorded an astounding 95 overall victories along 75 class wins in 370 starts. Its low, wide stance along with impressive power to weight, the 550 Spyder dominated against more powerful cars above its class. Actor / Driver James Dean affectionately described the car as "The Giant Killer". Today, the cars popularity far outweighs its production and as a result, companies such as "Beck Development" continue to build high quality replicas to meet the continuing demand for the legendary sports car.
The Beck 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder offered here is car #141 from Beck. It is presented in Cream Yellow over red interior. The car is powered by a spirited 1915 cc 4 Cylinder engine, 4 speed transmission and rear wheel drive. It features dual carbs, 4-wheel disc brakes with drilled rotors, custom header exhaust, bucket seats, Nardi steering wheel, Coco Mats, wood shift knob and VDO gauges.
It has been driven just 5397 miles, kept in a private collection and remains in wonderful condition. Mechanically, the car starts with no issue, sounds awesome and is a complete blast to drive. The car provides the perfect balance of power and balance.
