I will entertain resonable offers, unfortunately I must part with the car at this time..You are looking at an early production Porsche 356 C, born 10/07/1963. As you can see from the COA the other details are provided. This is a Numbers Matching vehicle that still retains all its original panels, transmission, engine, Blaupunkt Radio and even the seats. This car has been preserved and restored to a class well above driver status. There are extensive restoration pics that can be provided upon request and the two elements of the car that have been changed are the wheels and the paint color. Reissue wheels can be installed if preferred but the wheels currently on the car are early 911 Fuchs (dated early 71) Now the most interesting part we found about this car was obviously the motor, it has not been modified in any way and is completely stock with the noticeable exceptions. It has been zinc and cad plated in more than just the common nut and bolt areas. This has got the attention of our friends at the Porsche Archive department and many others but we have not had much luck in finding out the reasoning.(RECENT INFO, ENGINE MIGHT HAVE BEEN ORIGINALLY DONE BY Harry Pellow, trying to verify) Dealing with many respectable sources in the industry we continue to hear the same response and based on reaction we decided to preserve its appearance and take care of all its needed maintenance and rebuilding what was needed instead of making it look like the normal 356 engine. The dates on the VDO gauges were all correct and original to the car and the undercarriage of the vehicle was stripped of its former undercoating and reapplied with Wurth to ensure its life for many more years to come. This car also retained its original floors and many other components that were blasted down then coated with Por15 then treated with an additional coating. There are more than 600 detailed photos down to the nuts and bolts of this process that can be provided to serious buyers only. The carpet for this car is the genuine German weave that was purchased from Autos International. All of the glass is also Sigla and the windshield that was replaced during the process is Sigla as well. This car contains many new parts and details can be provided as well as the receipts, this is truly a stunning 356 that has one of the deepest paints I have ever seen. Everything works on the car as it should and is a blast to drive. This is a great addition to any Porsche collector’s garage. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
