Porsche 356 Package Deal

Finding a decent project 356 can be a challenge, but we just dug up this interesting package. Three cars are included; two 1960 356 coupes and one 1965 912. They all have rust and are missing pieces, but there might just be enough left here to build one good car and sell off the rest to help finance the project. Find them here on craigslist in Lincoln, California. Many routes could be taken here, but we know exactly what we would do…

We would build one of these. An Outlaw. It’s a shame to modify an original car, but you shouldn’t feel bad about it if the car was a wreck to begin with. We would start with the more solid of the two bodies and repair all the rust. Then we would rebuild and upgrade the engine from the 912 and stick it in the back along with the five-speed gearbox. Steel rims or minilites would connect that power to the road.

Some fresh paint and a pair of speedster seats would finish things off. After harvesting everything we could from the other two cars, we would stick them both back on eBay with no reserve and hope that we could recover some of our investment. In the end it would wind up costing more than the already pristine 356 from yesterday, but we bet it would be a heck of a lot more fun to drive. Review the build threadof the car above for some inspiration.

    I love your idea. Great use for this pile of parts. But there is absolutely no way you could wind up spending anywhere near the price of yesterday’s 356SC, unless you decided to use gold coins as sheet metal for your repairs. I don’t think a 356 is light-years more advanced technically than the VWs to which they are related, so building your outlaw should be doable by anyone who can wield a torch and twist a wrench. Go for it! Listen to the purists scream!
