Any history on '54 Speedster #80020

#1 Post by frank darmiento » Thu Jul 18, 2019 9:12 pm

I have recently acquired #80020. Car was delivered in 2nd batch of speedsters to Hoffman in October 1954. Original white/red leather strap car. Car seems to have spent most of its life on the East Coast. Last 20 years appears to have been in Virginia. Owner who passed a couple years ago might have been a vintage Porsche racer but I do not believe he raced this car. Restoration was started and never finished in the last 20 years. Curious if anyone might have seen or raced against #80020 back in the day and might have some history on the car. Would love old pictures and any stories or ownership history that might be available. Thanks so much and I hope some info comes in on the car. I have begun
a concours restoration in the last 3 months. Car is now in SoCalifornia. My e-mail is rmfent@aol.com.
