This Porsche 356 A Speedster by Reutter is a late-production example that was originally owned by Volkswagen dealer in Natchez, Mississippi. After 15 years of pursuit, it was acquired in late 1988 by a persistent admirer, who painstakingly restored to its original condition over a five-year period.

While in the care of a prior owner, the car's engine was upgraded to one from a later Porsche 912, using a counterweighted crankshaft and correct Super 90/SC 912 Solex carburetors with correct factory air cleaners.

Recently, the car has been refinished in Meisen Blue with a Navy top and interior and OEM tan square-weave carpeting. It has a pair of correct OEM USA full bumpers, with overriders in both front and rear and a set of chrome wheels with matching year-correct hubcaps. There is a chrome driver's side-view mirror, U.S.-specification body-colored bumpers, and a correct factory-specification muffler with through-the-bumper exhaust elbows.

The interior features a re-finished Meisen Blue dashboard with correct VDO gauges, including a date-coded 1958 tachometer converted to electric operation and a restored Nardi wooden steering wheel with correct horn button.

The car has an original jack and an original factory OEM tool roll with tools.

In 2016, the engine and transmission were rebuilt and their seals were replaced.
