Vehicle Description

1957 Porsche 356A T1 Speedster

Engine No. 63542 (Matching)
Transmission No. 12132 (Matching)
Completed on December 3, 1956

European Collectibles performed a full Concours restoration over a 20-month period from 2019 to 2020. 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, 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 from Porsche, this Speedster was originally finished in Weiss (White) with a gorgeous Rot (Red) interior. Currently finished in Graphite Metallic, only four (4) Speedsters were delivered in this color. It was a one year only color and is an extremely rare color combination. Driveline corresponds to the Kardex, all matching. 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, and photo documentation of the restoration. Truly one of the best 1956-1957 Speedsters that you will find!
