STUNNING PORSCHE 356A LHD * SOLD THANK YOU * SOLD (1959)
|The Angel of Death is a stunning tribute to the early Porsches that ran in the Grueling Carrera Panamericana in Mexico. This car was delivered to Hoffman in New York in April of 1959.It was originally Silver/5706 with red Leatherette interior & is Left hand drive.The period livery is removable. This 356 was a racing car at some point in its life & comes with its original (SCCA & PCA) racing log books indicating it was last raced in 1996 at Limes Rock. It was converted to fast road spec by its last owner, I presume to do the classic mexican road race. He acquired it in Delaware in 2005 & shipped it to California where the work was carried out. On his returned to the U.K in 2008 he shipped the car back home with him.The car looks incredible & goes so well, it really is a well sorted Porsche.|
