1958 Porsche 356A Speedster
Completed on November 15, 1957
The 1958 Speedster type T2 is the most desirable, sought after and drivable of all the Speedster from 1954 to 1958 with the ZF steering box, high bow top frame, and better shifter position moved closer to the driver. Finished in its original exterior color Meissen Blue and the condition is simply stunning! The interior is upholstered in full black leather, German black canvas soft-top and boot cover, and oatmeal German square weave carpets. Very straight body with excellent gaps & panel fit. The undercarriage is very nicely detailed including the suspension, engine, and transmission.
Mechanically it is in excellent condition. The engine is a period-correct 1600cc SUPER that performs very well with plenty of power. Manual 4-speed 644 transmission shifts through the gears with ease. The drum brakes have been completely rebuilt with all new wheel cylinders, brake lines, and master cylinder. Complete with tools, owners manual, side curtains, and boot cover. Fully sorted and ready to enjoy. Rare opportunity to find a T2 Speedster in this condition at a reasonable price.
75 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.
