1957 Porsche 356 Sunroof

Beautiful July of 57 T1 Sunroof, ardex correct. Delivered originally in Black with a Red interior, he car is spectacular. Comes with a toolkit. The car was a bare metal restoration on a nice core 57 Sunroof. The floors and longitudinal were replaced after disassembling and blasting the car. The underside was sealed with epoxy primer(black) then undercoated and painted. The matching engine was completely rebuilt, fter being balanced and blue printed. After assembly the engine was run in on a dyno and runs perfectly. All engine plating, uts, olts and screws are originals, estored. Subcontract work on the engine alone was $10K including a rebuilt distributor, ebushed and rebuilt carburetors . The crank was magna fluxed, urned, nd balanced to within 1/2 gram to the turned flywheel. The heads were nice originals to start with having benefited from new guides, eats and valves . The same with the transaxle which was rebuilt by 356 expert Vic Skirmants of Warren MI. New wheel cylinders, rums turned, nd brake shoes. The wheels were rechromed, he tires are new radials(Vredestein). New tie rod ends and rebuilt steering box. Aligned, tc, tc.The exterior brightwork benefited from approximately $25K in subcontract work to V Miles including: headlights (Bosch 9/12 script), he 57 only square door handles, ll chrome trim and door trim(rechromed), he 1/4 windows, ll knobs and switches, urn signals, ront and rear, nd shine up light. The gauges were redone by Palo Alto Speedometer and are date correct originals. The interior was done by Autos International and fits perfectly. The glass is new with the exception of the original rear window.The horns were rebuilt and are as new.You couldn't restore a core T1 sunroof to this level at this price. It was originally completed with the intention of keeping it, ut another rare car has come along so it's time for this gem to have a new owner.Please call or email me at vincebobba@earthlink.netI'm in California at 650 208 7861.
