The 356 offered is one that Porsche enthusiasts dream of finding: a virtually complete and largely original, numbers-matching T-1 Speedster that has been stored in a dry Texas garage for more than 40 years.
This car was carefully covered up for some 40 years, until noted Barn Find author Tom Cotter recently discovered it in Texas. The 60-horsepower Type 616/1 1600 Normal engine and 4-speed, fully synchronized manual transmission are both original to the car per the factory Kardex, a copy of which is included on file.
The Porsche remains quite complete, although the original bumpers had been removed; they were hung from the garage ceiling and will be included with the car, as will a box of additional parts and spares, including the original Speedster trim pieces. The car retains its hard top, original side curtains, and convertible top and frame assembly.
