1955 Porsche 356 $29,900

Grand Rapids, MI Black · 1776 4cyl · 6,938 miles
One of the most desired Porsche models today is the Speedster. It was a joint venture between Porsche and sole American importer Max Hoffman. He thought that the market here in the U.S. needed a cheaper version of the 356. Porsche agreed and built stripped down versions of the cabriolet, offering just a soft top with no side windows amongst other changes.
Today, this car is widely copied and has brought an onslaught of companies trying to make the perfect copy for a fraction of the cost.

The widebody Speedster offered here was built at D&D Specialty Cars in Van Buren, Arkansas for Billy Gibbons, of the band ZZ Top. 90 percent of the car was completed by D&D Specialty cars and then shipped to Jack Chisenhall, owner of Vintage Air in San Antonio and finished up. There were two cars built, the second one was meant for Frank Beard, drummer for ZZ Top. The project took longer than Beard wanted, leaving Billy Gibbons with Taco Wagons, Gibbons decided to sell one and keep one. These cars were intended to be used for running around town in.

Highlights include 15 inch half-moon steel wheels with BF Goodrich tires, Dual Webber carburetors, dual exhaust, roll bar, front disc brakes, JVC&DRVA speakers, real Porsche gauges, air conditioning, JVC equalizer and AMFM/Cassette. While there are many of these cars out there, this one certainly stands tall above many.
