Almost bent: 1953 Porsche 356 Cabriolet

How much are you willing to pay for a chassis number if it belongs to one of the 300 Porsche 356 Cabriolets produced in ’53? We assume that everyone has a different answer.

We are talking about the chassis because on this Porsche, in addition to it, the only original parts remain those relating to the bodywork. In fact, we imagine that this was a car that in the past was patched as areas of rust formed, or that it was used for racing many years ago, and consequently repaired race after race. The clue that leads us in this direction is in fact the dashboard completely stripped of what were the standard equipment.

The seller says that the engine and transmission are not there, yet in a photo of the engine compartment you can see a carburetor, obviously the currently installed engine may not be included but it is worth clarifying this point. The bumpers are missing as well as the rear lights, and it also seems to us that the nose has been modified in the past. In short, it is a question of evaluating its potential based on the expensive (very expensive) restoration required. Find it for sale at $99,500 here in Santa Ana, CA.
