The previous history is unknown but at the time of the takeover by the current owner in 2012 the car was laid out and clearly a car that had a competitive past as a SCCA Club race car. It was delivered direct to widely recognized marque experts of Prill Porsche classics to join the long waiting list of cars requiring Andy Prill's magical touch. Instructions were given for a full restoration to 'as new' condition and Prill Porsche was duly delivered. The original engine was missing, but a correct 1960 type 616/2 (no. 86522) engine – which has the more desirable stronger crankcase and wider oil pump – was sourced, fully rebuilt (with 86mm pistons, so 1,720 ccm) and installed. The owner asked to install 356 disc brakes for safer driving. After a few years, the restoration was completed. The owner bought the Speedster to enable his wife to restore a very special classic car to a “like new” condition. Unfortunately, when she was finished, she could no longer drive. This is an excellent opportunity to acquire such an exclusive car, recently fully restored by a leading marque specialist and with very low mileage.
