Porsche 356C Carrera 2 Wheel

Location: Gloversville, New York

Price: $1,000 US Dollars

You dont find many spare wheels like this anymore.  All the Porsche enthusiasts have been hoarding this stuff for years.   The Porsche Carrera 2 used a special 4 cam performance engine.   It seems the Porsche Factory created special wheels for this model with thicker wheel centers to match.   It even has the correct original parts sticker and stampings that corresponds to the Porsche Factory Service Bulletin.

porsche-356-sl-1951-le-mans-winner-1 I was able to see this car in person at the Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance this year.    It had an incredible story behind it as well.    Porsche has a replica at the Porsche Museum all these years because they could not find the original.    This car had its top cut off and raced in California all these years as a red roadster.   No one knew this was the 356SL that won Le Mans!    What a great find!
