What makes this steel-bodied 1957 Porsche 356A GT Carrera Speedster a “double barn find?” According to the owner, it's a double barn find because the car's unique racing history was discovered after its original "GT" four-cam engine was found.

In fact, that engine paired with the rare steel body makes this one of 31 such examples said to have been built by Porsche. On top of that, the 356 is reported to have a well-documented racing history from 1957-1959, where it was owned and raced by a Hollywood film editor named Jimmy Moore.

However, does double the amount of barn find mean that this 1957 Porsche 356A GT Carrera Speedster has double the chance of winning at the Concours d’Cancelation Presented by Hagerty?
