Were you able to get a PPI on it?

I hope the car is all you hope it is. So many guys have bought from websites across the pond only to get the beast back home and find it is just a total POS. Although your machine does look decidedly fine it's only a few pounds to jump on a jumbo and see the thing yourself. A weekend in the States - nice, take the partner, do some shopping, but do check out the car before you hand over the cash, bondo can cover a multitude of sins.

Nick,

I would almost swear that I saw this car in the parking lot of Central Market this morning in Houston, TX.
Same color, same lights but I think different rear view mirrors. Paper plates and A/B wheels. Licence plate
frame was from Victory Motors, Houston, TX. Could be a cousin of the car you have ordered.

The car is sound and has been checked. This post is more about finding more about it's history. We have the first 30 or so years and are keen to find more history of the car and the outlaw build.

Hi Nick , welcome to the 356 Registry !

I have a couple of 356s that I rotate between Cheshire and London W14 , today its a 356C , next week will be a pre A , so maybe we can get together some time , I only occasionally do the London events , last one was the John Fitzpatrick talk at the Knightsbridge Porsche Design shop.

Anyway , back to your Outlaw , be aware that the HMRC import duty is either 5% or 20% , to get the 5% the car has to be un-modified . The Duty is based on total of what you paid for the car plus your shipping cost , so can be a chunky number !

European collectibles car I think. https://www.europeancollectibles.com/ve ... 56sc-coupe More history in the ad than most of us have on our cars.
1965 356C There is never enough time to do it right, but always enough time to do it over.
