Interestingly this exceptionally pretty RHD 356 was not supplied by AFN here in the UK but via Raffay of Hamburg, as its owner was a serving member of the British Arms Forces in Germany.

Julien's Perspective

Some thoughts on this model

The factory cardex states that its guarantee commenced on 31st May 1957 and was ordered as a standard 60HP Coupe. Evidently the car has both a sunroof and integral driving lights fitted...although neither of these appear on official Porsche paper work, it is believed that both are correct factory items. Porsche build cycles were slightly irregular during this period....this car's chassis number indicates it's a 1958 model year but it was clearly built in 1957; the Porsche world refer to this production period as T1 1/2. Other pointers to this period are that its door handles are the early type but with later buttons, its door catch is high mounted (same as T1) but the car has tear-drop lights......all in all, a very interesting example.

Originally entrusted to Cliff Gregory who undertook a body restoration, the car was purchased as a painted restored shell before finally going to Roger Bray who completed the project in 2007. The car has covered a little over 2000 miles since, with the majority of these being clocked whilst touring the Italian lakes.

Upgraded to a 1.6 C Type engine but otherwise remaining standard, this fabulous little Porsche has just been beautifully prepared and serviced by renown Porsche specialist PRS Ltd. Eagerly awaiting a new owner to enjoy another European tour.
