1955 Porsche 550-Replica
Convertible Car for sale by MP Classics in Los Angels, California 90018
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
This pristine 1955 550 RS Spyder spent a better part of its life in the Blackhawk Museum in Danville, California under curator and collector Don Williams. Yes, this car is that unique and that nice.
You may ask what makes this recreation so special. Is it the attention to detail? The custom built Wendler style frame? All period correct Porsche components down to the wicker bill? These are great qualities that on their own make this 550 RS Spyder stand apart from any other replica out there, but what makes this car truly special is it’s heart.
From our research, we found that the power plant is a carry over 1961 1600 S Type 616/2 T5 that was originally built for a 1962 Porsche 356B and we believe was never installed. The research also shows that it is 20 from the last of these engines built in 1961. We believe that means this engine was still new when installed into the 550 RS Spyder during its inception in 1996 and it only has around 600 original miles.
