Porsche 356A

Our Porsche-trained Technicians are currently restoring a Porsche 356 Pre A back to its former glory.

The car has not been worked on for over 10 years and, as a result, one of the barrels had ceased. Our team has completed a complete strip down of the engine and are currently in the process of overhauling the whole engine. This 356 has also experienced wiring problems due to over 65 years of natural oxidization which has caused resistance in the wiring.

Andrew Wexham, Classic Technician, said: ‘’It’s a unique opportunity to work on an early luxury sports car; one that was to set a standard for years to come. This beautiful piece of imagineering was once owned by the legendary racing driving Betty Haig and I am looking forward to completing the restoration.’’

Please contact our Aftersales team for details on how we can help restore your Classic Porsche to its original condition.

Transmission

Porsche 964 Carrera 4

Our customer had been on holiday with his Porsche 964 Carrera 4 when it started having transmission problems. The car was inspected by a local dealer who suggested it come to Porsche Centre Leeds for further diagnosis.

Our Classic Technicians, Paul and Andy, investigated the issue using the “Bosch Hammer“ for ABS and 4wd faults, and found that the longitude clutch pack was in poor condition. The transmission was removed and stripped to find the extent of the repairs required, plus any further restoration needs.

911 e

1969 911 E

In 1969 Porsche produced just 954 911E Coupés. This 911 E was manufactured on 2 September 1968 and was first registered on 20 November 1968 making it one of the first B Series (long wheelbase) cars produced.

This particular vehicle has undergone an extensive four year restoration to a very high standard. This excellent example has retained its originality by using every original part of the car wherever possible instead of simply replacing worn items with new parts. The engine, transmission and drive shafts were reconditioned by Mike Bainbridge of MB Porsche Engineering. The car was recorded with a catalogue of pictures that document its progress from start to finish.

Intended as the luxury model, the 911 E came standard (in most markets) with the comfort package with features including: ventilated brake discs with aluminium callipers, velour carpeting, a leather covered steering wheel, heavy bumper guard inserts, chrome rocker-panel trim, gold coloured script on the rear deck, increased wheelbase for improved handling performance. The car was imported to Los Angeles from the Zuffenhausen factory and lived in the San Francisco area before being purchased and taken to the UK on 24 May 2010.

356 Rod Emory

1961 356 B Roadster, Rod Emory

Designed and built by Porsche restoration legend Rod Emory this 356 is the original Outlaw. The exterior is painted in Fish Silver Grey and is complemented with an impeccable Barber Pole Red Leather interior.

The previous owner commissioned Rod Emory to build this car for him with a 1960 356 B roadster (Californian) built to his specification back in 2009. The car was purchased through Rod Emory, who at the time had the car in his workshop. We have photographs of the car at Rod Emory's shop in Oregon when it was first commissioned and the history includes detailed emails back and forth between Rod Emory and the previous owner discussing the build at various stages of the two-year restoration.

Please contact our team on 0113 2926479 or info@porscheleeds.co.uk for more information on this vehicle.

356B Roadster

1961 Porsche 356 B Roadster

The 356 B Roadster is very similar to the Speedster, but is much rarer. With comfort seats and even more power this car will certainly bring a smile to any drivers face.

This particular Roadster finished at the factory on 6 December 1960 after being ordered by Alex Willis, Auto Empire Porsche importer in Seattle, USA. The car was delivered to a resident of Seattle on 5 April 1961.

The original supplied service book shows 11 stamps with handwritten notes on the back detailing further servicing from 30 June 1985 to 1 September 2012. On 21 July 1975, at 92042 miles, the engine was rebuilt by a Porsche Specialist in Bellevue with an invoice included to support this.

Following its time in the USA, the car was imported to the UK in 2013 and has been dry stored ever since. The bodywork has had a light cosmetic restoration whilst the interior is completely original, adding further character to this time warped 356.

This original interior really does have to be seen to appreciate the patina and condition. It truly feels like you are stepping back in time when sat inside the cabin.

The car is Chassis number 88813 and the Engine number 88076.

Please contact our team on 0113 2926479 or info@porscheleeds.co.uk for more information on this vehicle.

1958 356A

1958 356 A

Porsche introduced the 356 A at the 1955 Frankfurt Motor show. Major changes included the 1600cc engine, curved screen and revised suspension. Reutter remained as the coachbuilder with only slight changes to the outside, including wider tyres and a rubber strip below the doors. The interior was enhanced with a flat-face dashboard, locking glovebox and now included a radio.

Originally supplied to Australia, this particular car was imported into the UK in 2009. This 356 has received a full nut and bolt restoration both mechanically and cosmetically to concours condition. The body was restored by the renowned Roger Bray and the engine rebuilt at Maxted Page.

This matching numbers 356 A is painted colour to sample and is believed to be the only colour to sample 356 supplied to Australia. The car comes complete with the original service book and owner’s manual and a file detailing various parts of the cars history. To compliment this, the previous owner commissioned a full set of tailor made period luggage in Tan Leather. Built to original specification it adds a further touch of class to this very rare offering.

Simply put this is a 356 to cherish, enjoy and one that will certainly not disappoint.

Porsche Classic Motoroil

Porsche Classic Motoroil

Regardless of mileage, you should change the engine oil of your classic Porsche once a year as short trips are particularly detrimental to the oil. Frequently starting the engine when it is cold causes more fuel, combustion products and moisture to get into the oil.

Porsche Classic Motoroil has been specially designed by Porsche to suit the specific characteristics and demands of an air-cooled flat engine to ensure optimal performance.

The Goodwood Revival, which has been held at the Goodwood Motor Circuit since 1998, is a very special experience.
