With its stunning Speedster shape from the 50’s is this Legend 356. One of the nicest replica cars we have seen.
Finished in Porsche Bright Silver metallic bodywork, a new Mohair hood, period chrome wheels shod with Firestone F560 tyres, period bucket seats in matching grey with red piping and complete with full wet weather side windows.
Equipped with a 1600cc Air-cooled engine fitted with twin carbs, this car is fun to drive especially with its very strong and rigid “Legend” chassis, it will encourage you to take the long way home. Roof down, sun out who wants to be screaming along a motorway any way??
Having been in storage for the past 5 years the vendor has recently had it recommissioned ready for sale including: New battery, front brake callipers and pads, front bearings and gear linkage bush.The engine was rebuilt with replacement barrels and pistons, new gaskets and seals and a new clutch slave cylinder was fitted. The car comes with an mot and is ready to enjoy
In our opinion, one of the nicest things about this 356 replica is it has its own genuine patina to the body and interior which makes it look and feel authentic. Not to be confused with a lot of the inferior replica’s on offer today.
NOTE: With the constant attention the current owner lavishes on this car he has bought it to our attention that he has now fitted genuine and working Porsche 356 Interior door handles since the pictures were taken.
