Manufactured by Dr Ing h c F Porsche AG in Germany in June 1957 to United States specification. Chassis Number 100830 was painted Ivory with Brown Leatherette interior which is how the car is presented today. The original 1500 GS 547/1 Carrera four-cam engine is still present and was completely rebuilt using original Porsche parts by Prill Porsche Classics.

The current owner acquired ‘100830’ from Maxted-Page Ltd in 2011 and agreed to a comprehensive list of work to bring the 356 up to his required high standards. At this time the owner decided to fit the extremely rare and desirable Rudge knock-on wheels which were sourced from Willhoit of Longbeach, USA at great expense. The original type 547/1 four-cam engine was completely rebuilt with twin Solex carburettors, many parts were sourced from 356 guru Christoph Tanner in Switzerland.

The history file contains a huge number of invoices which documents the work carried out to ‘100830’ by Maxted-Page, Tanner and Prill Porsche Classics – some of the most well-respected in the Porsche 356 world. The owner had a very keen eye for detail and there are numerous pieces of correspondence charting his decision-making process during these works. ‘100830’ wears numerous 356 GT upgrades which include; seats, bumpers, cooling ducts, oil cooler and side trims.

Once complete the owner wanted to use ‘100830’ for regularity events with his family so reliability was paramount. With rallies in mind, sensible additions (all reversible should the next owner choose) were made which include; dash mounted Brantz rally meter, lap belts, Blaupunkt Essen radio with MP3, battery master switch, hand held fire extinguisher, Michelin XAS tyres and a complete overhaul of the heating system. The 356 proved effective with the owner winning the 2017 edition of the Blue Train Challenge with his son.

The most recent service work to the car was undertaken by Tanner in Switzerland with particular attention paid to the brakes and clutch assembly. Upon arrival at Henderson Fellowes and a test drive we are pleased to confirm that ‘100830’ drives extremely well and is in fine order throughout, a fine testament to the owner’s hard work.

Along with a nicely documented history file, UK registration Certificate (V5C) and Porsche Letter of Origin, this 356 is accompanied by the much sought-after booklet; ‘Porsche Carrera Guide for Engines Type 1500GS, 1600GS, 2000GS’, spare Rudge wheel, complete 356A Carrera tool kit and a miscellaneous spares kit.
