Owner had it for forty years in Denver. Drove it summer and winter. Very rusty with home brew repairs, but it had a good running 912 engine.
This 356 needed a lot of work but turned out nice. We painted it the original Speedster White and it has a red interior. It also has the original bench seat which is a very rare option.
This was a barn find by the new owner. It needs a lot of work and he didn’t have the skills. He put it on E-Bay and we bought it for $5,000.
Completely disassembled by owner, including suspension and wiring harness. Had been hacked up by a shop in Wyoming. Placed on frame jig to ensure it was square. Owner provided all the replacement panels.
After repairs we painted this 356 its original Dolphin Gray. Pretty color with hints of Red and Blue. Sold and went to Australia.
We had evaluated this 356 and offered a fair price, but had no response. A year later it was again offered and we increased our offer and it was accepted. Another Signal Red 356.
A family 356, but a demanding customer. Final completion was done by a shop in North Carolina.
We painted this the original Signal Red. Sold and went to Australia.
Purchased from a friend who had it as an uncompleted project. Typical rust repair but the original Fjoord Green paint and Tan interior made it a good looking 356. Sold and went to New Zealand.
