1957 Porsche Speedster

This 1957 Porsche Speedster has belonged to Don and Diane Meluzio of York, Pennsylvania, for 22 years. It is restored in its original Kardex Aquamarine Metallic exterior with a red interior. The Meluzios have always loved the colour combination, but never felt comfortable knowing that the car did not have its original engine. In 2009, however, a young man from the San Francisco area contacted them to let them know he had the original engine. It seems the Speedster engine was in a 1957 VW Panel Bus. A man owned a Porsche VW repair shop, and had removed the engine from this car some 50 years ago. He had recently passed away and this young fellow bought his inventory. It’s a story that you hear about, but it seems it couldn’t happen to you. It is now the complete package.
