This is a great running open 356 project with a strong engine, smooth shifting transmission, and four-wheel disc brakes. The paint is older with some patina and imperfections. It will also need some metalwork. The front floor pan, battery box, and longitudinal will need to be replaced. However, it does have a matching number engine and transmission per Kardex. It is becoming very difficult to find good Cabriolet projects. This is a great opportunity to purchase a matching number open 356 needing a little work at a reasonable entry-level price.
