This 4 owner Porsche was sold new in Germany and was imported to the Los Angeles area in 1956. The car's current owner began a restoration that lasted over 10 years and was recently completed in 2012.

The interior was reupholstered by Autos International and the drive train was serviced by Edelweiss in Torrance, CA with a rebuilt transmission and a freshening of the engine.

Extensive documentation of the restoration including photos accompanies the car as well as photos from the former owner in 1955, previous CA registrations, and repair invoices from its time in Stuttgart .
