    1951, 356,Split Window

    Here's another new addition. One of two cars in the last year that have put the biggest smile on my face. This is just Uber Cool / Sub Zero - you name it. I love this car.  Shining example of timeless design and what a colour Smiley - Radium Green. Don't ask how it drives SmileySmiley.

    Wow…wonderful!!!!

    Wolfgang Porsche has also one in this color…but a 1952 - no split window.

    When I was in college in the 1960's I was offered one like Wolfgang's for $500.....of course it didn't matter, I didn't have $500!!!


    Re: 1951, 356,Split Window

    Crayphile is on a roll!!

    Maybe I am biased, but I will take this over the Huracan.

    Slowly Smiley. Just sitting in it stationary puts a huge grin on your face. The gearbox is pre-syncromesh, so a "crash gearbox" which needs double clutching and makes a lot of grinding noises Smiley. I am contemplating putting a later synchromesh one in and keeping the old one aside. Also the front indicator lenses were clear in period and I think much better looking. The rear ones were red. I am sourcing both of these for the car - then she will look even more beautiful.


    Re: 1951, 356,Split Window

    Please keep us updated Cray! Would love to hear some experiences once you get to drive it some more and about the endeavours to make it the way you want it to be.

    Smiley. Many people put smaller diameter wheels with thicker tyres on to make driving it more rewarding and then put the originals back on for events etc.

    How many kilometers on this beauty? I’m not a classic car fan but on occasions I see similar Porsche’s on the road and I can’t take my eyes off it. The Mona Lisa of Porsche’s.

    The purpose of life is to enjoy the moment.

    Very hard to know with these cars. The meter was set to zero during the restoration. A lot of love for 356's in your SoCal area, especially for Speedsters...watch this space Smiley.


    Re: 1951, 356,Split Window

    Well this takes the cake for 2021 purchases !  Amazing car Cray thank you for sharing it with us. And the color is beautiful, a GT3 Touring in this color would end our PTS debate indecision


    Re: 1951, 356,Split Window

    I smell and hear a four cam speedster…paying close attention to this space like car porn with a happy ending

    the color is EPIC ! angel


    Re: 1951, 356,Split Window

    I"ve always thought that was the best colour Porsche ever produced. Modern water based paint can't do it justice unfortunatley.

    Not wanting to move this thread too far away from that beautiful radium green 356, however, to add to some of the Porsche history around that same timeframe, one is including a link about Porsche's alliance with Studebaker in the 1950s.  It's amazing, though little covered period, for Porsche as well as Studebaker, which coincidently was the only wagon manufacturer in the States to successfully make the transition to automobiles.  

    https://studebaker-info.org/studeporsche/stude-porsche08.html 

    The Studebaker National Museum also housed a couple of Porsches with suicide doors.  One has not found any stories about those cars but will make a trip to the museum when in the area.
