1957 Porsche 356A Carrera Speedster

Chassis number '83727', is the last of only three right-hand drive Carrera Speedsters built by Porsche out of a total production of 152 cars. All three were delivered to Australia. 

Between 2012 and 2014, the Porsche underwent a total restoration by marque specialists Sportwagen and Maxted-Page & Prill Ltd. The Carrera was returned to its original Ruby Red livery, with black leather seats with corduroy inserts. Adding to the GT upgrades, a louvred engine cover with air boxes was fitted also. In total, some £100,000 was spent on the restoration.

Following the restoration's completion, '83727' won the 'Best of the Show' award at Hedingham, Suffolk in 2014. While in Australia, the car had won the 356 Registry Award for 1992, 1993, and 1994 and the Inaugural Master Class award in 1996.

Estimate: £900,000-£1,000,000
