1958 Porsche 356A T2 Speedster


- We performed a full concours level restoration over a 20-month period from 2017 to 2019.
- During the restoration, this 356 was completely disassembled so that every aspect could be properly addressed.

- The 356 was stripped down to the bare tub and had minimal rust.
- All of the decks and doors are matching.
- The decks, doors, bumpers, over rider bars, windshield frame and soft-top were all pre-fit to ensure a perfect fit.

- The complete driveline was rebuilt including the engine, transmission, suspension, braking system, wire harness, and fuel system. All the chrome was triple plated, the components were either restored or replaced.

According to the kardex originally finished in Meissen Blue with a gorgeous Red interior.

- Matching driveline.

- Options include USA bumpers and a bench seat. Absolutely superb condition in every way, ready for any concour event or to drive and enjoy.

- Complete with tools, books, side curtains, boot cover, Kardex & photo documentation of the restoration. Truly one of the best 1958 T2 Speedsters that you will find!

60 horsepower, 1,582cc OHV air-cooled horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine with dual Zenith carburetors, four-speed manual 644 transmission, independent front suspension with laminated torsion bars, parallel trailing arms, and tubular shock absorbers, independent rear swing axles with torsion bars and tubular shock absorbers, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 82.7 in.

History
Porsche has the Speedster to thank for their success in the United States. Without this little convertible, it could be argued that Porsche sales might not have ever taken off in the fiercely competitive U.S. market. The car's low-slung and focused looks appealed to sports car enthusiasts and its price of just under $3,000 definitely helped to get Speedsters off the showroom floors and out onto the open road. Boasting few creature comforts but excellent driving characteristics, it helped cement Porsche's reputation in the United States and earned it a hugely desirable portion of the sports car market at a time when the motto of most British marques was “export or die.”

The Speedster holds a special place in Porsche history, not only as a sales success but also as an icon of minimalist automotive design. It remains a beloved vehicle today, and a well-restored and properly maintained Speedster, such as this example, is on the wish list of nearly every car enthusiast around the world. Simply put, no important collection would be complete without a proper Speedster, as it is an equal in automotive design and history as the California Spider and 300 SL, but it further benefits from practicality and ease of use, which makes it as perfect for running errands as handling twisty mountain roads. Motoring enthusiasts new to the classic car world are well served to acquire a “blue chip” Porsche such as this.
