Unusual Classic Car Finds – Part 2

In the ‘80s I was involved in a company that restored classic cars. One day a prospective client phoned up and sent a Porsche down on a flatbed for restoration. The car consisted of the disassembled body on wheels and a bunch of parts thrown in. After several months passed by without any communication, we tried to find the owner. His business address had no one at it, the only phone number we had didn’t work anymore. We took possession of the car by means of a bailiff managed auction. It was only when we started the process of selling the car that we learned that it was one of the rare 1959 356 Convertible D models. A local collector purchased it and had it restored for Vintage racing.
