  porsche-356-1958-rust-bucket-1 1958 Porsche 356A 1600 Coupe Project Location: Brook Park, Ohio Current Bid: $1,025 US Dollars as of 11.3.16 Click for Ebay Ad I personally love 356A coupes and convertibles.  They are amazing and nostalgic all at the same time.   I am always a fan of anyone brave enough to take on a car restoration ike this.   It requires alot of time  and deep pockets to do it right.  I love seeing cars that are documented from Day 1 to the first drive.  Its very exciting to see.   This car is worth saving but this car requires almost too much work.  Do you agree? I am not so sure you could restore this without being upside down financially.   There are so few 356A cars left that it is the Porsche enthusiast’s obligation in life to restore them.  I know there are people who would love to turn this into a 356A Speedster.    Blasphemy?

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!
