- Posted in 356 Cars
1955 Porsche Speedster 1600 Super #80379 with 1958 356 C engine (P70939), NPR1720 'C' Cam, Zenith Carbs. 4500 Miles on engine rebuild, leak-down just completed at under 2% on all cylinders.
Updated 741 transaxle with late synchros, and op-sleeves. 644 nose cone and adaptive parts to keep the original monkey motion shifting components.
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.
This car needs a bit of TLC, but this driver quality Speedster is a joy to drive with the engine and transmission upgrades. Font 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.
The owner of this car kept up regular maintenance and started the car monthly. The repairs recommended above do not need to be done immediately, if you are looking for a turn-key, driver quality, Speedster with Pre-A rockers.
Feel free to contact me directly with any questions you might have.
Thanks for looking. Erik - (303) 443-1343 ext 2
