Description/extras:

You've stumbled upon a gem—a classic Porsche that's managed to retain much of its original charm and remains in commendable condition. This rare find offers a glimpse into automotive history, its body serving as a canvas for the stories it holds. While it boasts a largely untouched body, there's a bit of mechanical fine-tuning required to bring it up to par, as is often the case with vintage automobiles. However, the heart of the matter—the engine—is in good nick, thanks to the installation of an authentic 90 HP C engine by Porsche, though it's worth noting it's not the original power plant.

The diligent efforts in its upkeep are evident, with tasks such as replacing the battery, addressing corrosion spots, fitting a new rear screen seal, replacing the engine lid cable, cleaning fuel lines, fitting new front brakes, and rewiring the ignition starter switch just to name a few.

Although it runs smoothly now, there's more work to be done under the hood to truly resurrect its former glory. But fear not, for with your passion and dedication, this Porsche has the potential to shine brightly once again. Enthusiasts would undoubtedly appreciate the opportunity to bring this classic beauty back to its prime.

Beyond its mechanical intricacies, there's a sense of nostalgia that permeates the air whenever one lays eyes upon this vintage Porsche. Each scratch and imperfection tells a story, reminding us of an era when craftsmanship was paramount and driving was an experience to be savored. Owning such a vehicle is not merely about possession; it's about being a custodian of history, ensuring that future generations can marvel at its beauty and ingenuity. -Disclaimer: All information presented herein has been compiled after discussions with the vendor.
