  • Future project?

Q: What’s the really special thing about this 356?

A: It’s a great driver quality classic Porsche that’s ready to use and enjoy immediately.

It arrived here in the Williams Crawford workshop and has been fully inspected by our 356 guru, Graham Kidd.

We have carried out some maintenance; the motor has had a full service, new oil and filter, spark plugs, points and condenser. Tappets adjusted, carbs tuned and timing set. All the metal brake pipes and flexi hoses are new, as are the front and rear wheel cylinders and brake shoes. Other new items include fuel lines, anti roll bar bushes, steering parts, fan belt and pulley and clutch cable.  All the electrics have been checked and there’s a new 6v battery on board. With a few other bits of fettling, over £6,500 has just been invested.

Graham’s verdict…… ‘It’s a good honest car. Doesn’t appear to have ever been welded and no signs of any accident damage. Original floors with even panel gaps. It drives really well.’

OK, the paintwork’s not perfect…….in time, you could make it so. But, if you are looking for a 356 to drive, without guilt or compromise, then this could be the one for you.

Supplied in Texas in September 1963, little is know about its early life. Before arriving in the UK however, it had changed colour from its original Ivory to a gorgeous rich red. The 60 bhp motor was exchanged for an age-appropriate 75 bhp ‘S’ unit and along with twin Dellorto carbs, this ensured better performance and ‘driveability’.

Purchased in March 1993 by a car enthusiast who had an unusual collection (including Citroens, Jaguars, Mercedes, a Lagonda and other Porsche), it was used sparingly, taking its turn with the others, appearing at local motor club events. In fact, it covered just 3,300 miles in 19 years. When the gentleman passed away in 2011, the 356 was left to his son and son-in-law, themselves both car fans.

Having not had a great deal of use, it was decided to mechanically recommission the 356 for the new owners to enjoy it in the same way it had become accustomed to, including an appearance at the Goodwood Revival in 2013.

Now having covered less than 5,500 miles since its UK arrival, it’s looking for a new home.
