Porsche 550 Spyder 1955 #015 restored by Boyd Coddington

While the names Boyd Coddington and Hot Rods are pretty synonymous there were some pretty cool restorations and non-hot rod builds that Hot Rods by Boyd handled back in the day. This one in particular was a rare beauty. This Porsche 1955 550 Spyder was car #015. It was brought to my dad in 1986 to get ready for the 14th Annual Monterey Historic Vehicle Races the following year. The car was completely stripped down to bare aluminum. This car came with a rare louvered belly pan that after years of driving was pretty hammered. Metal master Marcel DeLay took on the task of recreating the belly pan to match exactly. The car took about a year to restore. When it came time to paint the customer said he just wanted a standard Porsche silver. When my dad started doing his homework he called the customer to come over and help pick. I guess there were something like 400-500 shades of silver that were produced during those years. I think the shade they picked with those red accents coming off the tail lights nailed it. Besides hot rod wheels we also produce some of the nicest and lightest wheels for Porsche 550 Spyder and 356 Speedsters around. You can check them out here
