I didnt find a thread like this so i hope im not stepping on any toes here..

Just wanted to show you a 356? i think its called being restored around here in a friends' bodyshop. It has massive amounts of rust but he is determined to fix er up and i can admire that kind of passion for a car.

Nice find in FL --- is that 3 different Karmann Coupes? Only about 1750 of those made -- to find 3 together is rare. Not particularly popular - some cut off the hard top and convert them to a Cabriolet!

There's more than those 3. One of the pics is a notchback, one a coupe and one a cab.

Here's a Jax, Florida find. This car was restored and then disappeared for 10+ years. Turned up down the street from its current owner.

1963 Super 90.

I believe he would sell them. But they are all parts cars. The owner has been into 356's for 30+ years. If someone showed up with cash money I bet he could be persuaded. Not sure though what he would accept as far as money though....

That's a Volkswagen bug, but it looks like it has a Porsche engine.

I don't know if it's possible, but could it be a VW engine with the carbs, intake manifold, fan and other ancillaries from a 356 or 912 engine bolted on? Wink

Back on topic, this bug and 356 engine could be a cool project to restore together, or the engine could possibly be salvaged for use in another Porsche.

Look at the generator stand and how it is angled. Porsche.
