Posted on 772 views
Road Trip 2017: Day 2 We explored San Francisco and had a great time. In the morning we went for Dim Sum which is my favorite thing to do in the rain. It was a recommendation and the quality of the food was amazing. Next we explored the Windmills and Land’s End. Its beautiful and reminds me of Carmel by the Sea with the forests along the coast and the wind swept trees.

1959 Porsche Convertible D For Sale Location: Tempe, Arizona
1 of 1331 units produced.
Body by Drauz
The official Porsche Certificate of Authenticity is included
There was a dark blue Convertible D that we reported on a few months ago  for $130k.  That car had some issues to deal with but was a good restoration project.   This car in Tempe, Arizona is a fully restored example that is ready to enjoy.   The Convertible D was only made for 1 year and this is 1 of 1331 examples produced.   These were the successor to the Porsche 356 Speedster and designed to be more driver friendly.   The D had a 3 1/2 ” taller windscreen, roll up windows, larger rear window, and coupe seats.   This car  seems to have everything done to show level.  Its pretty impressive and worth looking at for a serious collector looking to acquire one.

1963 Porsche 356 Carrera 2 For Sale
4 Cam Engine
Location: New York
Odometer: 74,421 Miles
VIN 12198
Here is a beautiful blue 1963 Porsche 356 Carrera 2.  It is currently for sale in New York at Manhattan Motorcars.   Just 1 of 436 examples ever built.  It even has the rare electric sunroof option.    This is really the gold standard for collectors of Porsche 356 cars.  I have seen and heard one in person at my local cars and coffee meet.  It is surprisingly loud but would love to own it. There is very little info from Manhattan Motorcars in their ad but I hope for their asking price it is a museum show piece with the original matching numbers engine.  What a beautiful color!
