C'mon Jack...

Stop holding out on the details... post more pics and start the mouth watering with that 4 cam motor! Ok, I've watching this on Rennlist too!

Guys, I'm getting close to moving my outlaw from one storage local to the next :-( Wish I were starting my restoration!

Will post pics as promised

Thought you guys might like this one..

Picture is from this past weekend's "Gathering of the Faithful" annual car show sponsored by PCA Potomac.

Interior:
Speedster seats & custom upholstery w/striping to match body. Replica Carrera rollbar

Body:
Carrera GT mirror, frenched rear tag panel, shaved hood handle, louvered deck-lid, 911 SC rear fender flares, polished 7 & 8" Fuchs, and modified front body work, sunroof, pop-out plexiglass side windows.

Car was very clean through out and very well done. Last time I saw it, it had early 911S sport seats.

What a beautiful car!!! Before I bought my 930, I was looking for a 356 to use as my daily driver. I used to have a 356C that I never should have parted with. I come from the smaller displacement 4-cylinder air-cooled world, and there are times when I seriously miss their simplicity! I've always wanted to do a tasteful "outlaw". One of these days...

Sand_man..

Know what you mean... I was fortunate enough to have a 65 SC Cab in the early to mid eighties. It was a tatty little outlaw when I got-it with it's Fuchs alloys and Rollbar.

A quick color change from dented red/blk to shiny Ivory w/red and I was the hottest "manwhore" on campus! Ok, so the bottom was falling out..that was only on the passenger side though! Have fond memories of blasting up to the Ski Roundtop swap (now Hershey) swinging around the mountain roads trying to talk over the roar of that little four banger and the blasting stereo.. (12v conversion).

I traded that car for a 72 911E and cash, drove the wheels off the 72 until somebody hit it. Got out of college, called the guy I sold the 356 to (almost 10 yrs later).. he still had the car was willing to sell it back to me. So now its 90 or 91..prices have gone up, he's aware of that but says he'll sell it back to me at less than market vaule becuase it was mine. I tried to trade him a nice BMW 5er & cash but he wouldn't budge. Off to the bank, and I pick-up my car..sitting in his gargae, scratched from his kids bicycles but all there with the passenger floor repaired... get this, the title was still in my name!! The guy bought it, and only drove it around his development in almost 10 yrs of ownership.

So, like I said, it's now the 90's the prices have gone up, and I had put the word out that I might be willing to sell my 65 SC cab... again! Calls were coming in from everywhere.. (remember, not email yet, unless of course you were military.. oh but that's another story) sadly the little cab is long gone, and I'll admit.. I was amazed at what somebody paid!

I'll post some pics if I can ever get some of the old stuff scanned in! Sorry for rambling but I love these old-ass cars!

Paul

Regarding the 356 allure, there is this school of thought:

Is it more fun to drive a slower car fast, or a faster car slow?

I suppose the grass is always greener, that's why I need to figure out a way to have both, my 930 and a 356. I'm happy to say that my ten year old son is really smitten by the 356!! Makes feel like there is still hope for the youth of today! I'll always believe that the 356 is the embodiment of everything a Porsche should be!

I guess I should post a picture to make up for this rambling. This was taken at VIR about a year ago. It's not mine, but ironically is from my old stomping grounds, Sarasota, FL:

If I could only put the engine and transmission together faster, I would be driving this right now. Short stroke 2.7L, 66mm x 93mm = 2689cc.

Say . . . Oh, you had a Pre-A Outlaw and, even though Pre-A Outlaws most often have gauges in the radio pod, you it had a radio in it like this:

Wouldn't you wanna paint the speaker screen like this?

I'll be sure to post pics as I'm sure you'll find it unusual.

Ok, so I know you thought I forgot about this or maybe was just blowing smoke at you. I finally got the thing moved to the new storage and even remembered to take pics. Damn, I'll be glad to get far enough on my other projects to allow me to get started on this one!!

Don't be fooled by what looks like rust.. it's not! Floors, jambs, jack points, longitudinals, doors hood etc are all solid! That'sm why I bought it way back in 87.

WOW! What a wonderful piece of 356 Outlaw History!

Any back story on the car? Who did the work and when? Was it ever shown? Any pics of what it looked like during it's Glory Days?

Are you going to refurbish it "as is" or change it back to near original?

Just wonderful, nice find.

Luck ! ! !

TC/TeamEvil,

Glad you like it...

See 9th post on 2nd page of this thread for details on car.

Don't think it was ever shown and no pics from its glory days..

It will be restored as the "outlaw" it is.. with a few other tricks to be added!

Thanks,

P-

Paul,
Was the car running when you bought it in 87 ? What engine was in it, I see two engines, a 912 and a 616. Who did the work ?

Good eye on-ya there Mark..

Car has not run since I've owned it. Bought it as is in 87.. stored since. It came with the original which is the partially disassembled one pictured, the 912 motor I bought along with a spare trans.

Story on car in earlier post..See 9th post on 2nd page of this thread for details on car.

Great story!! Now, enough talk, get to work on it!! I must admit at first glance I did not think too much. After your story, I'm intrigued. Hope to see you "getting after it" soon! Best of luck!!
