Authentic 1956 Porsche 356A 1500 GS Carrera Speedster for sale, raced in the 1960’s then stored in a California garage 40 years. One owner since 1965; rust-free-factory-original metal throughout; 54,021 original miles. Never wrecked; superb factory body gaps; door, hood, and decklid numbers match (hood never kinked). All factory undercarriage spotwelds are pristine, including the original battery box. One of the best original-metal Carrera Speedsters in existence. Racing trophies and extensive photo documentation. Original numbers-matching Carrera 356AGS gearbox. The previous 50-year owner acquired this car in 1965 when he traded a 1957 Porsche 356A Speedster for it. Henceforth this car was only raced, never driven on the street; and it was garaged permanently in 1975. The original four-cam engine was lost prior to 1965, and subsequently a Lukes and Shoreman roller-bearing 1600 was installed. The original gearbox shifts smooth, the car runs and drives excellent. Please consult the video and extensive photo documentation below for more of the story behind this rare Porsche find.
