Caveman,
Thanks for getting the pictures on. I'm having problems loading the pictures. I use to be able to just hit the "UPLOAD" but now I have to do the "http" stuff.
Here are some more pictures...............

OK here's the scoop.................

My whole intention with this project was to put the complete 2.4 running gear, engine assembly, oil system into my pristine 57 Coupe (with matching serial numbers, no less!), and not modify the exterior of the body except for oil door.

So I've had to make room for the 2.4 package in the engine bay, create a mount and access door for the oil tank, manufacture oil lines for the front coolers.

Modifications include: Front spindles modified to fit 911 "S" alum calipers with the vented rotors; early rear SWB arms modified to fit the "M" calipers with vented rotors; Rear torsion tube center section cut out and modified to accept the 915 nose cone. This allowed me to move the 915 trans forward 4" and make lots of room for the 911 engine. 930 CV joints to help with the forward angle that the axles now run........

There's a lot of impressive craftsmanship in that car. I'm glad to see that Corona is available there...

Thanks to all of you for the very nice comments you have made. A few asked for some interior pictures. Interior work was done at Autos International.

Being an old 356er, I must say that this is one of the most beautiful cars I have ever seen, period.

Kudos on a job well done.......beautiful work!

Your car is incredible. I love it!

But what is that mod in the middle/bottom of the above photo...the clear thing sticking up? What is its purpose? Is it some sort of lubricant?

Nice car but wrong forum
That's a project that I can really appreciate for all the engineering and fab work that went into it. I bet it'll be a real hoot to drive too!

No one should have a car that neatly detailed, or that complete, or that perfect. What happened to those half-a**ed projects that we all have, with nothing except dreams instead of reality. Hell, no one should have a garage that big, or that clean! What, you have a crew working for you, like on "Overhaulin'"?

some answers to questions

Paul...Thanks for the comments on the car. Sorry for the wrong forum deal, but at least the engine "66x93 short stroke", Transmission, "915 with short gears", SWB rear arms with "M" rear calipers, front brakes "S" calipers and all vented rotors, are in the right forum. Funny, some one said I was in the wrong 356 forum last week. No problem, having lots of fun.

Baloo...Thanks for the interest. I am a one man shop. Just me. I ask lots of questions, take lots of advice and do my homework. I did all the work on this project except final paint job which was done next door to my shop at "HIGHFILL'S AUTOBODY" and of course the interior that was done by "AUTO"S INTERNATIONAL". My real job is running a radio communications/public safety sales and service business called Coast Telecomm. I'm in a 2400 sq ft shop and the rear area, 1200 sq ft, is the Porsche area.

Doug... The lubricant is Corona 24-7 weight. OK maybe 2 or 3 in the evening.

Al Kosmal...The paint is the Porsche 2006 Carrera GT Silver Metallic. I used DuPont basecoat/clearcoat. Porsche paint code is "LM7Z".

Oh I almost forgot, I'm a volunteer fire chief for the Seal Rock Fife District. Somehow I manage to run a business, be a fireman and build a fun outlaw all at the same time. My wife "Linda" has an ever growing "To-Do List" waiting and her car runs like s**t. But he Porsche looks good!

don't listen to the 'wrong forum' type comments, this is an RS car and well deserves to be posted where it is.

given your deverse work schedule, how did you budget for this project? when did you purchase this tub?
