Details

1959 Porsche Convertible D just out of a fresh restoration, converted to Speedster Specification.   The car started life out of the Drauz factory in 1959 as a Convertible D.   Sometime in the 80’s, the car was repurposed as an SCCA racer.  There are pictures of the car running at Limerock included with the car.   When retired from racing, the car was configured for street use as a Speedster.   The Speedster windshield frame, convertible top frame, door panels, seats and badging were all added.  The racing engine with extractor exhaust and the Carrera GS brakes were retained in the car. 

In Oct of 13, the car began a total restoration. Finished in Black, with red leather interior.

Zero Miles since restoration

Over 600 hours spent on body and paint work

Original Race Engine included in sale.  A Harry Pellow Engine is currently installed in car.  Engine number: 706098

Harry Pellow, the Maestro, is famous for his work as well as his books on rebuilding 356 Engines.   This engine still retains Harry’s signature gold plated parts.  I also have correspondence from Harry to the original owners of the engine, as well as copies of Harry’s books (rare and hard to buy)

About $100K was spent on this restoration.  Aside from fitting the soft top, the car needs virtually nothing.
