As you can see, Skip and Leslie's Carrera Speedster now has a smile on its' face. It was rescued from the auction site with no damage and no worse for the wear. However, they report that many other cars were not so lucky with many sustaining heavy damage as the tents collapsed. The photo was taken at their new shop on Sunday.
It was no doubt a happy homecoming.
The Carrera Speedsters now bring about $300,000.00 on the market. The Carrera Speedsters have a 1,498 cc 4-cam engine producing 100 h.p. with a top speed of 125 m.p.h., and started production in 1956. The most famous of the racing Carrera Speedsters was the Bruce Jennings car. The GT-designated cars had lighter aluminum doors, bumpers, hood and engine lid with some trim items deleted.
