Here is another 1962 Porsche 356B for sale this time in Louisiana. Seller states this car has original rust free pans, new paint, and an excellent interior. This is a non matching car with has a Super 90 Spec Engine installed. I like the lower valence and sport exhaust pipes found on this car but not so much the bumper mounted fog lights. This is a non matching numbers car that has the higher hp engine which would make it a fun daily driver. Its a non matching numbers car and will be fine for someone wanting to get a Porsche 356. The previous post was a fully restored black 356B in Chicago with matching number engine and transmission for about the same price. The other one seems like a bargain compared to this one. Perhaps some negotiating will get this car down to a reasonable price.
1.10.17 update: Seller had car for 1.5 years and has no rust. Last owner had the car for 20 years.
1957 Porsche 356A For Sale
Location: Los Angeles, California
As a previous owner of a 1957 Porsche 356A, I have stop thinking about getting another one. Hopefully this time a speedster. They are incredibly satisfying cars to drive. This 356A T1 coupe came from the factory as Graphite Metallic (color 5603) with red leather interior. It is currently Ruby Red and looks stunning. Its been extensively restored with documentation and records of the process. It includes the Certificate of Authenticity (COA).
The 356A was built between 1955 -1959. There were a total of 21,045 examples built. It is believed that less than half have survived. Its true, many are being given full restorations now which is fantastic but imagine how rare it is to find an original paint , original interior , original engine car. Those cars are amazing to see and once in a while there is one that pops up. I enjoy looking at all original cars for hours on end. All 356A cars have a special meaning to me and will always try to have one in my garage.

This is an extremely rare matching numbers example which sold new to a Milanese owner on April 20, 1953, but shortly thereafter was sent to Carrozzeria Zagato where it received the iconic double -bubble aluminum body work, lightweight bumpers, plexiglass side windows, and other racing and weight saving features that was only given to the Elaborata cars. This is an exceptional car with an amazingly well documented ownership and racing history.
Purchased from original owner with 5,603 Miles on it
This Porsche was found in northern California. It is a 1969 Porsche 911T sunroof car thats believed to be all original. Seller states he purchased from the original owner with only 5,603 original miles. I will admit I am a bit skeptical. It has all original glass and has a rare option which is a the rear window defrost. It has original Fuchs wheels and an unused Spare. Seller states the batteries are the original autobahn batteries dated 1968-1969. It has original tires and original paint Burgundy on Tan. There is rust found on this car. It will need new floors at some point. It also has a clean title. This car should be looked at in person and inspected.
In 1969 Porsche lengthened the 911 from 87 inches to 89.3 inches to lengthen the wheelbase. They wanted to improve the car’s handling at the limit. This car is a 911T but the 911S and the middle model 911E received Mechanical Fuel Injection (MFI).

The Perana Z-One is built by coachbuilders Zagato and Perana Performance Group. They are a south african vehicle manufacturer. This is 1 of 7 in the USA. They are based off of the 6th generation Corvette. There will only be 999 cars built per year to assure exclusivity. Zagato has opened a new design center in the heart of car culture in Santa Monica, California. This is where the Perana Z-One was designed and styled. It would be interesting to get a close look at one of these cars. I am curious if it still feels like a corvette.
