Blank engine: 1954 Porsche 356 Speedster


This Porsche Speedster is titled as a 1955 car but actually, because of the chassis #80087, it is one of the first batch of 200 cars built from September to December of 1954, making it a valuable car.


Unfortunately the car has not a matching number engine: the car is equipped with the actual engine since 40 years ago but the problem is that all the previous owner couldn’t locate the engine number: this often happens of this aircooled cars and that’s not a surprise at all.


Apart from this, the car shows a nice patina as the actual paint was sprayed in 1972 and never touched since then: in 1972 this car was purchased by the actual owner and it has been in the same family since then: it not a perfect car or a timecapsule but a great car to enjoy as is. Find it for sale here in Bakersfield, CA, with a buy it now price of $285,000.
