Beschreibung

Originally sold in Louisiana, this vintage Porsche spent its life as a weekend racer until purchased in 1986 by its current owner. The cars engine was tragically irreparably damaged while being raced in the early 1980’s. Aftewords, it was transformed into a Super (75 HP) which was driven until 2002 when that engine gave out. Then, the current owner sent a 1964 SC engine case to HP Enterprises and Harry Pellow, the owner, in Santa Clara, CA. It was to be customized with all the best SC features including state of the art counterbalanced crankshaft, sodium filled valves, larger bores, and a lightened flywheel. Aesthetically identical to the original engine, it produces just under 100 HP making this is a very fast 356!

In 2012, the car began a bare metal restoration that would use the factory lead filler and would employ authentic metal working techniques that when returned to the original Fjord green paint produced a concours quality convertible. The Porsche was the featured marque at the 2013 Colorado Concours. Under the discerning eye of the concours judges, this Speedster was awarded first in class. Having outgrown its rabble rousing racing days, this car is ready to spend its retirment on the golf courses, as an honored guest at the countries concours events.

Vehicle to be auctioned Friday, October 31st at Motostalgia's 2nd Annual Grand Prix sale in Austin, TX. For more information visit www.motostalgia.com
