DreamCarXchange is pleased to present this 1956 Porsche 356 Speedster Recreation. This Speedster is finished in Ivory over Red interior and currently shows 3,900 miles. According to the selling dealer, it was built by Park Place in Bellevue, Washington in 2013/2014 and it started life using a 1962 Volkswagen Beetle chassis and is fitted with fiberglass body panels. An oil & filter service, brake fluid flush along with alignment was completed in Spring 2018. It is being sold with some maintenance records and a clean New Jersey title.
This car is a replica of the famous Porsche 356-based Speedster made popular by James Dean and others. It was born as the result of Max Hoffman (a Porsche importer in the US) asking Porsche to develop a lower priced, racier version of the 356 that could compete against lower priced Triumphs and MGs. With its low, raked windshield – which could be removed for weekend racing, bucket seats and a minimalistic folding top, it was an instant hit.
The interior is finished in Red with ivory piping and trim, and features a banjo-style steering wheel and fire extinguisher mounted to the center tunnel.
It is equipped with a 1.6 liter flat four cylinder engine with Weber carburetors mated to a manual transmission.
It rides on 15″ polished steel wheels wrapped in Pirelli tires.
The selling dealer states that it is a clean example, and they have some maintenance records and that it comes with a second set of bumpers. The most recent service is indicated to be an oil & filter change, brake fluid change and alignment in early 2018.
