Check out this really pretty Porsche 356 restyled by Ghia. Click on the link, but it's in another language. Looks like it's for sale too.

Front end looks almost modern. Not sure about the rear though. Skinny crossplys should make her an interesting drive :)

i remember my first car, a mk2 cortina with crossplies (5.20x13) what a nightmare, used to tramline terribly, but even with 58 bhp usedto be able to get the back end to step out on roundabouts (nearly put power slide there :oops: )

Cheaper than the original and a unique one off made by Ghia, sounds an investment bargain, if only had the ready's, checking down the back of the sofa as we speak :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Yes, I think if any of us win big on the lottery tonight, it'll be one of the 1st things on the shopping list. :wink:

There are a number of one off 356 based cars. In their day you could buy from the factory a rolling shell and then you make your own body on the whole they would only be by coachbuilders of their day. I have not even seen that car before so it shows they are about..

It's hard to value these cars. Unless they are by some one who is seen as the guru then the price is almost worth what some one wants to pay for it.. some are great looking cars others are well get the whiskey first I will let you know later tonight :wink:

Great to see though
