Details and Story:
Heres a great example of a very late November-build Pre-A Speedster. The previous owner tells us it is a no-hit car with all of its original panels and floor pan. The only thing that needed to be replaced was the battery pan. It has near perfect gaps; the doors make that “ting” sound when you shut them; and the proper fit and finish all over this car makes this a rare Pre-A indeed. The tan interior and top are very well done and they remain in excellent condition. The engine currently in the car is a smoked-over 912 with plenty of horsepower to “get it done” while a stock engine (#60339) is also included. To help the car’s drivability a 1958 356 steering box and 15″ wheels (16″ wheels included) are currently on the car. These tackle the only real faults of a Pre-A, its tractor-like steering and its very narrow tire contact patch on the road. This is a terrific Speedster to enjoy on sunny days, and to satisfy that itch that needs scratching without spending double the money for a concours trailer queen that you won’t let the kids near.
