THE PORSCHE 550 SPYDER, A VERY BRIEF HISTORY:- The Porsche 550 Spyder was inspired by the original Porsche 356. From 1951, Porsche 356 prototypes were built and raced by Walter Glockler. His successes led to Porsche’s decision to build the first Porsche specifically developed for racing, the 550. The engine was based on the VW Beetle flat-4. It had shaft-driven, twin overhead camshafts, a roller-bearing crankshaft and dual ignition. Displacement was 1498 cc for the 1.5-liter class. Fed by a pair of Solex carbs, it produced 110 bhp at 6200 rpm. With an aluminum, monocoque body maximized for compactness, aerodynamics and lightness, the car weighed around 1300 lb. All the factory 550 Spyders were silver in color. The first three were hand-built prototypes. 550-03 raced as a roadster at the Nurburgring Eifel Race in May 1953, winning its first race. 550-05 was introduced to the general public at the 1953 Paris Motor Show. Over the following years, The Werks Porsche team evolved and raced the 550 with outstanding success and it was recognized wherever it appeared. With the 550, Porsche was the first manufacturer to organize, external, racing sponsorship. The Porsche 550 Spyder became an active participant on European and US championship circuits between 1953 and as late as 1965. Starting in over 370 races, with approximately 95 overall wins and an additional 75 class wins, the Spyder dominated and/or embarrassed more powerful cars from the prestigious racing stables. The cars were well represented at famous circuits around the world and soon became the racing car of choice for privateers, earning the reputation of ‘Giant Killer’. Only 90 cars were built with 78 being sold to the public for motor sport purposes. For such a limited number of builds, the 550 Spyder was always in a winning position, usually finishing in the top three in its class. The beauty of the 550 was that it could be driven to the track, raced and then driven home which showed its incredible flexibility. THE JAMES DEAN SAGA:- For the younger among us, James Dean was a movie idol of the fifties. He starred in the major, movie successes East of Eden, Rebel without a Cause and Giant with the film stars of the day including Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, Sal Mineo, Natalie Wood, Julie Harris, Raymond Massey, Dennis Hopper and others. However, his passion was racing. After a succession of fast cars, motorbikes, street and track races, in 1955, he traded his Porsche Super Speedster for a brand new Porsche Spyder 550. While his racing activities were contrary to the wishes of and his contract with Warner Bros, this did nothing to deter him. After breaking up with girlfriend and film star Ursula Andress he was returning home when, shortly after being cited for speeding, he collided almost head-on with a Ford Custom Wagon. The Porsche was demolished and James Dean died at the scene. At the age of 25 and the height of a movie career, this was, of course, major international news, the side effect of which was the increased, enduring fame of the Porsche 550 Spyder. MY 1955 PORSCHE 550 SPYDER:- My car is actually a 1991 reconstruction by the famous Chuck Beck. Chuck started making them in 1982 and his 550’s are widely acknowledged as being the most accurate and solidly constructed while capturing the very essence of the original 550’s with incredible handling and typical Porsche/VW reliability. Why replicas? They are what us lesser mortals have to aspire to now. Of the original 550’s that still exist, one is in Ralph Lauren’s famed collection of classic cars and another belongs to major Porsche fan, Jerry Seinfeld. The last known original sale was at a Goodings auction at Amelia Island in March, 2012 for $3.685m – as featured in Keith Martin’s “What’s My Car Worth” on the Velocity channel. Some of the replicas on the roads today have been made to look like James Dean’s “Little Bastard”, as he christened his car. Mine has stayed faithful to the original, Porsche look. The paintwork is almost immaculate with no stress cracks but it does have the minor stone chip (I think there are 4!). As you can see from the photos, even the underside is noteworthy. The milometer reflects a tad over 10,000 miles. While I can’t substantiate this, I have absolutely no reason to disbelieve it. The engine is a horizontally-opposed, 4-cylinder of 1,951 ccs, putting out approx. 125 bhp, it’s in excellent condition. It's fed by 2 twin-choke, down-draught Dellorto carburetors with chrome air filters, is fitted with an oil cooler and oil temperature gauge and drives through a trouble-free, 4-speed, manual, gearbox. At 10,000 miles I figured a special servicing was desirable and I have recent, maintenance bills for just about everything to which one needs to pay attention even having the carbureters sent out to be rebuilt. In total, I have spent nearly $6,000 since my purchase. Brakes are the traditional mix of discs in the front and drums at the rear. The front tires are recent Michelin XZX 165SR15 Radials while the rears are Michelin XH4 205/70/R15 95S Radials. The rear wheels have been set up with slight positive camber to minimize wear to the inners of the tires under acceleration. With an incredible power-to-weight ratio, both the acceleration and handling are legendary and, with the low height, seating and windshield, the whole experience is “go-kart” -like not to mention the incredible sounds from the exhaust. The engine compartment is beautifully detailed with chrome fittings and is exceptionally clean and well maintained. Paintwork is Porsche silver throughout with a black interior. It has the correct detailing and vintage authenticity. The period gauges and supplementary oil pressure and temperature gauges are operative. There is a copy Nardi, wood-rimmed steering wheel. All knobs are from billet aluminum. The wheels are chromed as are the lug nut covers. There is a center-hood, quick-release, chromed fuel filler. All the lights and their gaskets are in great condition. Security and rain protection are provided by a brand new, black, canvas, tonneau cover. Crow, vintage, racing seatbelts are fitted, five-point to the driver’s side and lap to the passenger’s. Under the hood there is an un-used EMPI tool kit, jack, etc., and tire inflator kit. There are twin, leather safety straps to the rear, clam shell. Traditional rear view is complemented by a matching-color, vintage, Spyder Mach 1 fender mirror, just as the original cars. Per the photo, the car is registered in California and I have clear, Florida title in my personal name. Buyer will be responsible for knowing title, etc., regulations for his/her own State. If required, I can assist with arranging transportation to you at your cost. If you have any questions or want more of my many photos, please do not hesitate to contact me either by phone at (954) 463-5300 or via email at [email protected] I have done my best to describe and photograph my car honestly. However, I strongly suggest that either a prospective purchaser or his agent comes to inspect my car prior to purchase - by appointment only please. The purchaser is buying the car entirely upon his own or his agent's personal examination, inspection and opinion.
