We evaluated this 356 for a potential buyer. It was missing the engine, gas tank, instruments, interior, and many other parts; I told him not to buy it. later, the owner offered it to me. I said, “No, I had too many projects.” he said, “For $800?” I said, “OK.” We did the metal work and race mods and moved the engine and parts from the shop ’57 Racecar. This one is faster than the ’57 and one of the oldest racing Porsches.
