Behold: an immensely rare 1955 pre-A variant Porsche 356 Speedster – one of only 1,234 such units produced between 1954 and 1955.

The original powertrain has been replaced with the more powerful air-cooled, 1,582cc, overhead-valve, flat-four from the later 356SC but otherwise, the feisty little jellymould – which spent most of its life in Southern California and still wears the state’s vintage black and yellow plates – is presented in ‘as found’ condition.

Price on request.

      no need, there’s a tasty little replica in a fetching shade of metallic brown out in Bill Griffins out in motor City on the Naas road.

        That sounds awful. No offence but you’d be better off buying a nice second hand Micra or whatever. Or save up for the real thing!

    Saw a very close relative of this today (northside Dublin…you might have seen it Chompsky but not Bodger), black racing livery with No 8 on the side.
