Original engine and Door Card Questions.

#1 Post by steve raucher » Thu Sep 06, 2018 9:30 pm

Hello all,
My 5/2/58 356A Speedster #84832 was born with engine #69557 616/1. This is a normal 1600 60hp motor correct?
Would the 616/2 motor connote a 1600 Super motor?
Also both interior vinyl door cards have had on them forever long bottom pockets for storage. I have only seen one other Speedster with similar door pockets, European owner claimed original from new. Were these door pockets an option or likely someone had them sewn on back in the day?
Thank and regards,
Steve
