The previous owner over steered into a bridge abutment on a wet Texas road. The hit was in the driver’s side door and the driver was killed. This happened in 1963 and the 356 only had 14,000 miles. A mechanic bought the wreck for the transmission and left the remains outside his shop where it was used to store hay for the horses. Thirty years later the mechanic’s son brought the Roadster to 356RESTORE. With a lot of time on a frame machine and a left side clip this 356 was restored.
