Check out the fantastic patina on this very rare Porsche 356. This one was a barn find out of Texas and the owner plans to keep the cosmetics as is. Perfect plan as far as I am concerned as it looks fantastic as is. Any restoration would wipe away a lot of character.
The Continental was used only for 1955 and only in the US market where importer Max Hoffman wanted a US sounding name for the 356. Maybe it was too American as Ford Motor Company claimed ownership of the Continental and the 356 was renamed European for a short time then the name was dropped.
One year only fender badge
with its descendant – a 928.
I edited this one to remove some other cars and people.
