It is almost impossible to talk about James Dean without his “Little Bastard” Porsche 550 bringing brought up. This iconic car from Porsche was a opportunity for them to get into a different class and setup in the racing circuit. They could of never known the significance it would play in the classic car culture of today.

This gorgeous 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder from Beck Development is so pleasing to the eyes with its stunning Metallic Silver/Blue exterior paint with the lobster red leather interior. This vehicle screams class and sophistication and with just over 14k Kilometers it is barely broke in. Vehicle was completed by Beck in 2003 and according to previous owner there were only two other owners before his purchase in 2018. Vehicle has been kept in California its entire life until now and ready for immediate delivery anywhere in the World. The gearbox was recently service with a full rebuild less then 500 kilometers ago by TRE Motorsports. The car has the iconic driver side headrest that is removable but adds some extra eyeball to the overall look of the car. Nardi wood steering wheel, VDO gauges, driver side fender mirror, leather buckle straps, rearview mirror, LED fog lights, full tonneau cover, and full soft top with side windows will all be included along with the factory glass windshield and a lightweight plastic windshield.

This car is powered by the 2165cc CB performance 4cyl engine that is rated approximately at 165HP and with just over 1300LBS on the scale; there is plenty of power to enjoy this two-seater with a huge smile on your face. Exhaust is fitted with a powder coated Sebring setup, external oil cooler, electric fuel pump, 4 wheel disc brakes, and dual Weber carb setup.
