Retired from 45 years of track service, this 1964 Porsche 356C is the ultimate "Outlaw" foundation.. The car has NEVER been registered for street driving! You can still see where the numbers were plastered on the side and hood of old #18.. It was the first 356 ever registered in the 356 Registry..

Its getting 2.4 liters and 220HP of MassIVe performance, the engine is already built!. Its going in for a fresh coat of paint in the coming week.

The rendering at the bottom of the page is what I anticipate it to look like by June!! I want it ready for our Reunion Show!

That is a beautiful car. How do you find a car like that?

Know people in the Phillipines :-)

The scars from racing for 45 years are apparent, I am not going to try to hide them, it builds character! The 4 point cage is covered with event decals from races dating back to before the 1970s. I am gonna leave it as is!

The windows don't have cranks, just a webbed cord that snaps to hold them closed, when the window is down just pull the webbing to raise it.. Lightweight for sure!

My goal is to have the engine ready to install on our tech weekend..

The car goes to the paint shop this week, it just needs a tad bit of body filler dressed and a fresh coat of paint..

I plan on making the engine really hard to distinguish from a typ 356 engine, I even plan on having a set of Solex 40 p11 carbs bored to 44mm and then fit the mesh air filters to them, etc, etc..

Dude, I love a 356! Theres somethin kinda spooky about em to me. They remind me of the 550 Spider (little bastard). I would love to have one! They look like something that can kill you. But I think you have to be famous.

We had a Spyder back in 2007... It was fun, but so damn impractical! It was fast as hell, had good curves but was fake!

This baby is the real thing and I can't wait to get it on the road!
