My upholstery arrived back from the shop in December of 2019! No, that is not a mistake, it has been sitting in a spare bedroom for over a year. Ouch! Anyway, with the weather outside of 40 with rain, low temps clocking in at 34 degrees, and the garage unheated, it was time for in indoor project.
Time to assemble the beautiful work on the seats and the very nice newly chromed hinges!
Project was only about 1 hour per seat, and I'm really pleased with the results. All complete now except I forgot to order the little rubber bump stops that go between the chrome hinge and seat frame. Those are very easy to install later.
Now I can't wait to be seated in the car, put my hands on the newly refinished original VDM wood steering wheel, and take a drive!
Ok, the year is 1965 and you think you will head over to the dealership to check out a PORSCHE. The new model 911 and also the 4 cylinder 912 are both on the showroom floor, and so is the tried and true 356. You check all of them out, you wonder if you like the new body style of the 911/912, but the 356 is calling your name. After all, you first fell in love with the PORSCHE smooth body styling.
It is not a small amount of money, so after looking you might even take a test drive, or two, and then after discussion with the salesman you pick up the brochure for the car you are favoring- the 356.
Below is the brochure you would have brought home. It is a nice color brochure, and inside it shows a pretty cabriolet in Irish Green color with Fawn interior. Gee, what a pretty color combination- but I am biased!
Below is a couple of photos of my brochure for the 356C. Keeping it safely stored in my library of books and literature.
