This Porsche 356 Speedster 1600 was delivered to the US importer Max Hoffmann in New York on 19.02.1957. The original exterior colour was white, combined with a black leatherette interior.
According to the information of the current owner, the car had two further owners in the USA and was then later sold again to Europe. First to Luxembourg and then in 2011 to a collector in France.
The current owner bought the car from this collector in 2019.
Overall, the car is in a very nice and largely original and unrestored condition. The paintwork was renewed once in silver many years ago and, like the entire car, has a very nice patina. The tail lights were changed over the decades to the more modern oval T2 tail lights. This change was not unusual, to give the cars the appearance of the newer variant. Originally, the car had the two single round tail lights per side, which could also be retrofitted.
The engine is the original engine with “matching numbers”, while the gearbox has been swapped for an identical one of slightly more recent date.
The underbody is in very nice condition and has been reworked in the past and additionally preserved with transparent wax by the current owner. Both bonnets and the doors are stamped with the bodynumber.
The interior is completely original and very rarely found in this condition.
As accessories, the car has a contemporary hardtop and the sought-after aluminium-steel rims.
All in all, the patina gives the car a very special appearance.
The car can be viewed by appointment. It is duty paid in Germany respectively the EU. The Swiss licence plates were only mounted for the photos.
