A one owner car up to 2006 (and then only another one since then) the car was bought by its previous owner in a fine, nearly 100% original, state and then commenced a no expense spared restoration by well respected 356 specialists. This work totalled around £120,000 and was split between Maxted-Page & Prill who did the engine rebuild and Sportwagen who spent over 1470 hours on the bodywork.
Bodywork wise the car was dismantled and stripped right back, any corrosion or rot was cut out and new sections fabricated and welded in and then reassembled, all with the finest attention to detail.
The engine rebuild was done using a Neutek ZH1 camshaft which produces more torque than the 102 Super cam and with forged Shasta 'Euro' pistons and 8.5:1 compression, ported manifolds, Super specification carburettors and gives around 80 BHP, a useful increase over the original 60 BHP. The heads were rebuilt with new guides, the flywheel refaced, the crank assembly reblanced, rebuilt fuel pump, new silencer and heat exchangers. The tinware was all sandblased and powder coated, the starter motor and dynamo were reconditioned and the engine run in to a strict running in regime.
The work done on the car is all documented, a custom made leather wallet bearing an engraved plaque with the car's registration number contains every invoice involved in the restoration and notes from the inspections made by the previous owner when conducting due diligence prior to purchasing the car.
The car comes complete with a full complement of original tool kit and jack, car cover, leather luggage case which fits in the boot, workshhop manual and parts catalogue.
The car today is as new, surely the best Porsche 356 in the world.
Here at Specialist Cars of Malton we ensure our cars are the best quality cars in the country, this attention to detail has seen us voted Independent Porsche Sales Garage of the Year by 911UK members three years running!
We start off by picking the best cars for stock, of the 3 or 4 cars we get offered every day we buy only the best one or two a month.
Upon sale each and every car is taken to our workshops where it goes through our thorough 74 point check to make sure everything works as it should and is in good condition. Next the car is given a major service and the service book stamped accordingly. We carry out a 4 wheel alignment on the cars and an aircon service on cars with airconditioning. The car will then go to a local independent MOT station for a year's MOT. We tax the car for a year and fill the fuel tank.
Next the cars go to our team of professional detailers who spend up to a week preparing the car cosmetically. Any stonechips are removed, the wheels refurbed if necessary and the wheel hubs are painted. The seats are removed and cleaned. Next the car is detailed using Zymol professional products to give a long lasting lustre.
Finally, and arguably most importantly, we warranty every car for a year from bumper to bumper, anywhere in the world. This is not a bought in warranty, we stand by each and every car we sell for a year.
