The Porsche 356 presented here is a Roadster example that underwent a comprehensive restoration by the marque specialists at Vintage Auto Collectibles in South Amboy, New Jersey. As with all other projects selected by the company, this particular car was chosen for its lack of body damage or corrosion. Utilizing correct materials throughout, the car was restored to as-new factory standards. All mechanical components were examined and expertly rebuilt or replaced as needed with new parts. The engine, transmission, suspension and brakes were all completely refurbished and the car was stripped to bare metal for inspection and installation of new battery walls. The Porsche was then sealed and finished in the original Porsche Fjord Green (code 6005) while the interior was upholstered in Light Brown leatherette, according to the original Porsche specification.

Other features include a new tan top, European headlamps, new carpets, new mats and new knobs and instrumentation. The gauges, however, were restored by North Hollywood Speedometer and the engine compartment was equipped with sound deadening. Accompanied by a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this Roadster offers a thrilling top-down experience without any of the Speedster’s drawbacks. It is beautifully restored and in excellent condition throughout.
