Found my dream project over Thanksgiving weekend. I’ve been searching for a 356 for along time and Saturday morning Josef Murphy sent me a FB message I couldn’t resist. Made the call and looked at it that morning. Got the ok from the wife and it arrived on Monday. My plan is to get in running and figure out the mechanical kinks before the restoration. Spent Tuesday working on the electrical and engine. I was able to get it started and out for a bit. Still need to do a complete carburetor rebuild and timing. More to come.
Sunday was the inaugural run of the world wide Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride. The Twin Cities run was planned by my brother Son and most of motorhugger was in attendance. As usual, the cameras were mounted and running. I ran into some glitches with the cameras and didn’t get all the footage I wanted. Especially the last 10mins of the run. I was able to piece it together anyways, hope you enjoy it.
