Livery Stable Find: 1958 Peerless GT

1958 Peerless Gt Front Corner

Update – The seller ended the auction early. Perhaps a deal was made offline?

Peerless was a British manufacturer which produced cars from 1957 through 1960. In that time they built around 300 cars and even raced a few at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Even though they are rare, Peerless GTs can still be found at many vintage racing events around the world. This 1958 Peerless GT is a very original, but all the mechanicals have already been gone through to make it safe to drive. Find it here on eBay with bidding starting at $20,000 reserve unmet.

1958 Peerless Gt Rear Corner

This car made its way over from England to the USA in the 70s. It changed hands a few times, but the most recent owner has done a complete mechanical refresh to make the car drivable. It has been re-sprayed once in its original British racing green and the interior is still all original. The car was also recently featured in Hemmings Sports and Exotics.

1958 Peerless Gt Engine

Parts will be easy to source here because that engine came from a Triumph TR3. The two liter four cylinder engine provided plenty of power to move the fiberglass and tubular space frame down the road. The seller claims that everything has been taken apart, inspected, and reassembled. They claim that everything works as it should and that the engine runs cool with good oil pressure.

1958 Peerless Gt Dash

The interior is rough, but not too bad considering that it is still sporting the original leather from 1958. The design of the seats and dash remind us of an Aston Martin of the same era. In fact, the exterior reminded us of an Aston when we recently saw one in person. The rear wings do throw you off a bit, but they just make the car even more unique.

1958 Peerless Gt Seats

The leather is dirty and worn, but it reminds us of our favorite baseball mitt. There is something comforting about leather that has already been broken in. Stitch up the ripped seams and condition the leather to clean things up a bit while preserving that patina.

1958 Peerless Gt Sde

We wouldn’t change a thing about this car. The wear and tear just add to the character. We do love the fact that everything has already been gone through so it can now just be enjoyed. The next owner will be charged with preserving this great piece of British motoring history.

    Dang! don’t go over any speedbumps in it! Great looking car though.

    Wonderful car, but rather disappointed that the seller – who seemed to really love this unique auto as per Hemmings article – is now selling. Hope it’s not just the $….

  5. Warren Webb

    The lines remind me of the Sunbeam Alpine of 1960. It could very well have inspired the designers at Rootes.
