This beautiful 356 Speedster left the factory on November 30,1955
finished in Signal Red over a beige leatherette interior. The car
was kept in dry storage from 1973 until 2010 when a bare-metal
restoration was completed by Klasse 356 of Allentown, Pennsylvania,
at which time the car was refinished in its original color of
Signal Red (6211). The chrome door handles were refinished along
with the round bezels of the early "beehive" style taillights. The
tan soft top and removable side curtains were made more recently by
Autobahn Interiors of San Diego, California. The interior comes
trimmed in beige leather with red seat piping, tan square weave
carpeting, an ivory-colored two-spoke steering wheel, a black
rubber floor liner, and a suite of analog VDO instrumentation
rebuilt by North Hollywood Speedometer including a St�rk oil
temperature gauge. In 2015 the original engine was replaced with a
Porsche 912 engine which was rebuilt and upgraded with a 1,720cc
big bore kit by Bob Fox of Ambler, Pennsylvania. The rear wheels
are driven by way of a 4-speed manual gearbox. Koni shocks
absorbers are equipped as well as an upgraded Porsche 911 ZF
steering box, Porsche 911 dual-circuit brake master cylinder, 911
wheel cylinders, and steel brake lines. About 1,000 miles have been
driven since the installation of the rebuilt engine. Additional
features include H4 headlights with chrome stone guards and 15"
wide-five steel wheels with chrome hubcaps and Kumho Power Star 758
Radial tires sized 165/80.

This Signal Red 356 Speedster runs and drives as good as it looks
