A lot,the chassis has to go on a bench etc.
I am in the fase of collecting all the parts etc.
Pretty much set to start this up,i have the whole back side complete.
Torsion tube,902 5speed,springplates,rear traling arms all swb.
Found all these parts right here on the forum
Bought the parts to move the gearbox closer in Germany,gearbox nose whit speedo delte etc.
Will be a fun project for sure.

Yeah, I probably won't car up this tub any more than it has been. Maybe do a 2.2 -2.4 914 engine with an upright 911 fan w/the 741 and disc brakes. Makes since for me to use the parts I have laying around with a few added tricks if I every want to get this thing together! Hell, I may even assemble one of the 912 motors I have and get that in there to get it on the road.. cause I'm getting the itch!

Any pics of your progress so far?

Wow, absolutely superb, with a 911 engine and 915 gearbox too. Just an awesome motor car. Although I have just completed my hot rod (do I have to call it an outlaw?) 356 and I did have intentions of sticking a 911 engine up its bum but due to the phenomenal rises in Porsche and Porsche parts prices I am afraid this is now beyond my meagre resources. However, hope emerged following conversations with my local independent Porsche garage. You can buy complete early Boxters for 2 and 3 large these days, so I'm looking into the possibility of fitting the complete engine and trans from a boxter. A mid engine 356 . . could be interesting.

No Boxster engine or gearbox is worthy of a 356. Totally different league. Your car will be a slum slut if you do that to it. And I'm not even picking apart the cost yet...

356 outlaw project

I have a 356 coupe replica project with a tubular chassis
It is currently set up with a 68 912 motor, trans, axels,
It is designed to be able to build the chassis and then to drop and attach the body.
I have a ton of money into this project but as with any unfinished project
I will lose my butt
356 Body and Chassis with misc suspension parts......$5,000 OBO
912 motor and trans $6,000
COMPLETE PACKAGE FOR MUCH LESS
I will throw in all of the parts I have been buying too!

I have a '56 coupe that will probably end up an outlaw. I've been driving it since 1973. It's not really a candidate for restoration. When I put it together I just wanted a 356 to drive. Made my own floor pan, put in a 644 transmission, and 1963 Super engine with 1720 P&Cs. I don't know if any of the body panel numbers match (never cared).
Going on the block in the spring 2018. I hate to let it go, but I don't drive it anymore and it needs to be owned by somebody who will use and enjoy it.
