Hemmings Find of the Day – Waibel sport cabriolet
Daniel Strohl on Dec 29th, 2009
https://www.hemmings.com/blog/2009/12/29/hemmings-find-of-the-day-porsche-356-prototype/


Quote:
It was built in 1948 by the renowned Swiss Coachbuilder and one of the principal creators of the early 356 cars – Hans Waibel. Waibel had close ties to Dr. Porsche before and after WWII including building two prototypes and a commission to produce two show cars in 1948. The car is truly a forefather to the later factory 356 cars with such details as a curved windshield. It carries a unique provenance with ownership history including some of the major players in early Porsche history including M. Debrunner, president of VW AG Switzerland, and Ruprecht von Senger. Von Senger financed and established the early Porsche dealership network in Europe much like Max Hoffman would do later in the U.S. in 1953.

3 speed was standard. Read down. GTO got a 4 speed and the Dodge got a Torqueflight.
