The 1958 Speedster type T2 is the most desirable, sought after, and truly the best to drive of all the Speedsters from 1954 to 1958. With the ZF steering box, high bow top frame, and a better shifter position that is closer to the driver, there is nothing better.
European Collectibles did an exquisite restoration on this 1958 Speedster over a 36-month period from 2017 to 2019. During the restoration, this 356 was completely disassembled and stripped down to the bare shell so that every aspect could be properly addressed. The body and panels are original and still retain their correct stampings/numbers. All panels were pre-fit with bumpers, overrider bars, a windshield frame, and a soft top to ensure the absolute best result. All the chrome was triple plated and all of the components were restored or replaced.
Mechanically, it is in excellent condition! The complete matching driveline was rebuilt including the engine, transmission, suspension, braking system, fuel system, and a new wire harness. The matching 1600cc Normal engine performs flawlessly with plenty of power and the matching manual 4-speed 644 transmission shifts through all the gears with ease. The four-wheel drum brakes have been completely rebuilt with all new wheel cylinders, brake lines, and master cylinder. The undercarriage is fully detailed including the suspension, engine, and transmission.
