The car is a 1959 Reuters body cabriolet ,this car was acquired from an estate , it has been in storage for around 40 years. The person who owned this car worked for the local Porsche dealer which is no longer in business, she bought it there new. The original engine was removed for reasons unknown ,the original engine comes with the car ,the engine is complete and turns over with no problem.
The car needs a complete restoration ,the floors need to be replaced. There is rot thru on several areas of floor ,at some point it appears someone did some basic repair and then added ziebart or similar product so its hard to tell full extent of floor rust.The original car color was blue then painted with current color.
I am happy to answer any questions on phone for serious buyers. Email me your question and I will call you back. Current value of these cars in restored condition is between $150,000 – $280,000 depending on level of restoration .
