356 Outlaw build

Recommended Posts

Exciting times ahead, this 356C is heading down under! Still a long way off but always nice to see some new content in the 356 section.

My current thoughts are to run a 912 motor, 12V electrics, racing bucket seats, green glass, electric air cond, a half roll cage, billit wheels. Not sure about the body mods yet pie cut & widen the rear and an early round nose graft would be nice… will wait & see!

I say this seriously...that patina is soooo bloody cool. I'd just clearcoat that bad boy as is and preserve that patina, it's badass. I love the stance on the frontend too. Good luck with the build.

Cheers Blue964,

I absolutely agree (& so does my wallet) that it would be great to just knock out the bondo and leave as is but unfortunately I go to many of the same events as Scott from outlaw garage does in his bare metal 356 and as they say no one likes a copy cat. 

The stance is raked as it’s got no engine installed and a flat tyre so I think airbags would be needed to replicate. 
unfortunately the coupe was held up with USA customs and has to wait in the naughty corner for another month till it starts the boat ride down under. But in better news I’ve found a complete 912 motor for it in California. Still looking for P* 710001 * as thats it’s original (the first ever base spec 356C built).

So the 356 has landed safely down under, and even better is that I actually got to see it in the flesh! The body is better than I expected in many area’s although I couldn’t quite get underneath it to properly assess where undoubtedly most of the rust will be lurking.

In true outlaw style it has already had a few run ins with the law relating to incorrect papers & has also upset the Aus customs/quarantine officials but is  currently being sent off for fumigation and cleaning.
