as accessory parts.
Maybe Reutter or Karmann or D'Ieteren or Drauz or Glaser or Abarth made removable hardtops. These are the body supply people that I remember. But, not all of them supplied bodies for the Speedster.
I'm not a 356 historian. I just remember seeing the cars on the road. I wasn't old enough to drive yet. I had to wait for ten years after Porsche stopped building the Speedster until I could afford my first car. But, that's another story!
