This car has tons of originality and even more patina. It is a wonderful driver due to excellent or recently rebuilt mechanicals. Dash paint, floor pans, longitudinals, all appear original. Slight damage to front decades ago was repaired when car received its current paint job (best guess is 30 years ago).

Current collector and show winning Porsche restorer/owner is proud not to have restored this wonderful car.
