This amazing ’55 Speedster was displayed by George and Susan Kehler of Johnson City, Tennessee at this years Hilton Head Concours d’Elegance.  It was originally imported to Central America and raced there extensively with many class victories. It won its class and fourth overall in the 1958 Santa Anna races in El Salvadore driven by a then 18 year old Pedro Rodriguez. 

It was ordered with the 1600 Super engine with 75 hp for racing. Currently it has only 45,000 miles on it. I loved all of the racing memorabilia and pictures in the car. What a treat to see.
