This car has no feelings but, at the same time, has a special heart: it’s not the common aircooled, pushrod engine of the common 356’s of that period but a very rare four cam engine.
That’s because this is a 356 Carrera 2 GS, not your common 356. Very few were made and, back then, they had the same price of a Ferrari 250: of course many preferred to buy a V12 instead of a flat four. This engine was a 2-litre unit which produced 130 hp and makes this car fast: it is said that only 310 cars were built with this body/engine combo.
This particular car is said to have been totally restored: the seller says that out of 310 made, less than 30 were with factory sunroof and 70 liter fuel tank, equipped also with original annular brakes, original doors, hood and engine lid. just one thing though: we ca’t read anywere that the engine is the original one. Whatever, find it for sale at €685,000 (today $850,000) here in St.Ingbert, Germany.
