Lot 139 - 1964 Porsche 356 Recreation
|Odometer reading||38,000 km|
|Estimate||£20,000 - £25,000|
|Result||Sold - £16,600|
The Porsche 356 was created by Ferdinand 'Ferry' Porsche, son of founder Dr. Ferdinand Porsche. Like its cousin, the Volkswagen Beetle which Ferdinand Porsche senior had designed, the 356 was a lightweight and nimble handling motor car with the four cylinder engine and drive positioned at the rear. The chassis was a completely new design as was the 356's body which was designed by Porsche employee Erwin Komenda, while certain mechanical components including the engine case and some suspension components were based on and initially sourced from Volkswagen.
With the prices of the 356 Speedsters now well within the six figure mark, we are delighted to offer this high quality example. The car was recently imported to the UK last year and is supplied with a US Certificate of Title, EU taxes paid, NOVA documents and it is hoped that by the time of the sale, UK registration documents will be supplied. Power is supplied by a rebuilt 2100cc Stroker engine fitted with twin Weber carburetors and bringing the car to a stop are new upgraded front discs and calipers. The interior features Porsche dials, authentic period tan carpets and seats as well as a wood rimmed Nardi steering wheel. Keeping the elements at bay is a black roof, tonneau and side screens. With a current MoT test certificate valid until February 2017, all that is required is for the new owner to enjoy the 356 experience at a fraction of the cost of the genuine article.
