1955 Porsche 356 Speedster Model AJ063 by Old Modern Handicrafts

The Porsche 356 is a raw lightweight and nimble-handling, rear-engine, rear-wheel drive, two-door, sports car. Now you can own this legendary 356 Speedster in a perfect scale size of 1:8. This automobile model is 100% iron frame with metal, rolling wheels. The bright paint and painted convertible top details give more of an authentic look. The models have seats as well as a steering wheel and minor details on the dash. The exterior details such as bumper reinforcement are securely welded on. When shipped, the item is packaged with foam inserts banded to pieces of cardboard to keep them held sturdily in place. • 100% iron frame • Metal wheels • Wheels roll • Painted • Includes details such as seats, steering wheel, and gas pedal. • Exterior details are securely welded on

History: The Porsche 356 is a lightweight and nimble-handling, rear-engine, rear-wheel drive, two-door, sports car available in hardtop coupé and open configurations. Engineering innovations continued during the years of manufacture, contributing to its motorsports success and popularity. Production started in 1948 at Gmünd, Austria, where approximately 50 cars were built. In 1950 the factory relocated to Zuffenhausen, Germany, and general production of the 356 continued until April 1965, well after the replacement model 911 made its autumn 1963 debut. Of the 76,000 originally produced, approximately half survive. In late 1955, with numerous small but significant changes, the 356 A was introduced. Its internal factory designation, ""Type 1"", gave rise to its nickname ""T1"" among enthusiasts. In the US 1,200 early 356s had been badged as the ""Continental"" and then a further 156 from autumn 1955 to January 1956 as an even rarer T1 “European” variant after which it reverted to its numerical 356 designation. In early 1957 a second revision of the 356 A was produced, known as Type 2 (or T2). Production of the Speedster peaked at 1,171 cars in 1957 and then started to decline. The four-cam ""Carrera"" engine, initially available only in the spyder race cars, became an available option starting with the 356 A. Within the last 25 years, replicas of the 356 A have become very popular.
