This ’63 356 is said to be a good driver. It doesn’t have the original engine and is said to have bondo and patches in it but these early Porsches are sky rocketing in value. The 356 B’s are the least desirable (although its truly hard to call this undesirable) of all of the 356’s but this one has been upgraded to “C” brakes which puts discs on all four corners and makes it much more drivable. The good thing about a car like this is that you can run it hard and not worry about beating up a museum piece or something that you’d need to mortgage to afford. Find it on Craigslist in North Atlanta with an asking price of $29k.
This ’64 356 became part of the family in 2007 and is the pride of the shop. It sees regular use in vintage rallies and has garnered a few victories of its own. The stock 1600cc engine has been upped to 1750 and a hot cam has been added. Twin Weber downdrafts have replaced the original Solexes and a Carrera style stainless exhaust was installed let it breath easier. Inside the side glass has been replaced with plexi to save weight and a set of Longines rally stopwatches were added to keep us on schedule. Up front period Marchals light the way and stone guards keep the rocks at bay when navigating on the occasional dirt road.
