memo from der keyser .......... ,

Well! Back from the Northwoods,

refreshed, revived, restored and ready

to accept the annual milestone of

another REGlSTRY anniversary. Would

you believe this issue marks the end of

five full years of publication? 30 issues?

Maybe "late" a few times, but always

out. I see no reason why volume 6 will

not be better ... more and more are

becoming actively involved.

Take for example the potentially

crippling blow of losing one of our

prime movers, our membership

chairman, Bill Durland. Not only did we

have one, but we had three competent

and qualified individuals express a

desire to fill the position. Choosing one

is the type of problem we need, not

floundering around looking for just any

warm body. It is encouraging ... and

active involvement of more and more

will insure the continuation of the

REGlSTRY into the far distant future.

I am happy to announce that C. Tom

Oerther is our new membership

chairman! Tom's name should be

familiar to all of you: chairman of

Holiday 11, he has been to every Holiday

(only 2 or 3 can make that claim),

originator and sparkplug of the regional

"Cincinnati Bullsession" and is single-

handedly responsible for signing up

almost all of the Ohio Valley members.

Welcome aboard, Tom in your new


The transition period may be a trying

time in that we have 2500 members with

several hundred renewals, frequent

address changes, some lost in the mail

issues, etc., occuring every other

month. Please be patient, because we

really are trying.

For all those that hav'e been patiently

awaiting resumption of the back issue

program: good news! Fruitcake &

Company, purveyors of official 356

REGISTRY authorized products, are

now the administrators of our back issue

program. Not all issues are available at

this time, but many are. Please see their

ad, this issue, for the details.

The Tweeks sponsored swap meet in

Indianapolis was a great success. It has

expanded to the point of outgrowing

their parking lot for next year. It didn't

rain, the sun was hot ... but the beer was

cold. I encourage you to not only

attend, but to participate in the next

swap meet in your area ... but all buyers

and no sellers will be a death blow to a

meet. Remember, your jun k is someone

else's coveted treasure, so pack it up and

take it with you. And in addition, you get

to see lots of your old pals! No swap

meets close by, you say? Get with your

local PCA region and Porsche dealer,

and start your own.

You may consider the following as a

blatant plug, and it probably is ...

however, our art director's unselfish

efforts to the REGlSTRY merit some

small token in return, right? And

besides, the product stands on it's own

merit. If you like Joe Colford, Jr.'s

artwork as seen on several REGlSTRY

covers and throughout the inside pages

for the last couple of years, then you

should consider getting a set of his

drawings as advertised in this issue. They

are good, nicely presented, and best of

all, a real deal at $5.50 a set.

Last call for Holiday V, Hartford, 28,29,

30 September. It's time for all you guys

that have said, "If it's an East Coast

Holiday, why isn't it on the East Coast?"

or "I would attend if it was on the Coast

where I could get some real seafood."

Put your money where your mouth is!

Feature this: a real New England

clambake, New England fall foliage in

full display, (we hope) really on the East

Coast, plus all the usual 356

commaraderie thrown in. Bill Durland

and committee are working very hard to

make sure a memorable time will be had

by all. I'll see you there!

Second call for 1980 Holiday (East &

West) chairpersons. I also would like to

acknowledge the receipt of our first

1980 inquiry from the southeast Atlantic

Coast area. All it takes to get your area

considered for a 1980 Holiday site is to

get your local 356 group together for a

planning meeting, put together a

tenative schedule of events, being as

specific as you can, draft a proposal and

send it to me. The only requirements: 1)

no competitive moving events 2) a

suitable commemorative jacket patch

must be provided. Based on that

complicated framework, only your

imagination should be the limit, right?

December 31,1979 is the cut off date for

proposals, only for your own best

interest, so that the trustees have time to

act on your proposal, giving the

sucessful groups as much advance lead

time as possible for their Holiday.

Remember, each proposal stands on it's

own-no formal presentation is

required or hopefully ever will be.

See you in Hartford!

You might be interested in sharing a portion of a letter received from Fred Moor,

1979 West Coast Holiday chairman: "... we had about 50 Holiday t-shirts left over

which were donated to a local children's charity and were very happily received.

So far I haven't seen little urchins running around in 356 Holiday shirts." Three

cheers for you, Fred1

"Just a note to let you know that the 356

Campout was a great success. 15 June

found the earlybirds gathered around a

couple tables and a couple beers at Kent

Park. We early ones got to take Al

Bohanon's trivia quiz by the light of the

silvery moon. Saturday morning found

us looking over the cars that had arrived

and meeting a lot of fellow Porsche-


Saturday afternoon Gordon Elliff

(resident restoration expert) and Tom

Bruch (resident mechanical expert and

whiz kid at Bonneville-racing Porsches

of course) put on an informal

techhestoration session. A lot of time

was spent on sheet metal prep and

protection with a lot of input by the

various people there.

Saturday evening we gathered at the

Amana Colonies for dinner. At this time

various winners were announced. Bill

Brown's '57 Speedster was our choice as

the best looking car. His car had just

been reassembled 1 month before.

Yours truly won the trivia quiz, while Cy

Crandell copped honors for the

farthest-from-concours car (putting it

mildly). It must be noted however that

Cy had stayed up all through the night

Friday putting another engine in his car -

then he drove straight through Saturday

to get to the festivities. Tom Bruch by-

the-by, answered incorrectly the

question concerning the true

displacements of the 11,13,15, and 1600

engines, missing on all 4. His excuse was

that he builds so many oversize engines

that he has all these different numbers

wandering around in his head (not to

mention all the various 911 sizes).

Finally it must be noted that if we had

given an Iowa Corn Cob Award

(Gasohol, you know) that it would have

gone unanimously to Al Bohanon for his

fine effort in putting this fete together:

about 90% of the various events and

little details were taken care of by Al. We

owe him our thanks for an enjoyable

weekend." Skip Montanaro

"I am very interested to receive the 356

REGISTRY and find the articles

contained therein most interesting

indeed. I thought you may be interested

in details of my own Porsche 356. 1

purchased this new when I,was living in

Germany in the mid 60s. I actually

travelled to the factory in Stuttgart with


a local German porsche dealer through

whom I actually purchased the car and

at the factory made my selection of the

various parts and combinations of

accessories that I wanted fitted. The car

was therefore built for me to my


I have been the only owner of this car

since new and apart from changing the

electrical system from 6 volt to 12 volt, it

is virtually as it was originally. I have

recently been restoring this to an as new

condition and although I have not

completed the task yet it is well on the

way. I would have no hesitation in

statlng that it is the finest 356 Porsche in

New Zealand. The special features I had

fitted at the time of purchase are Electric

GOLDE Sliding Roof, Electric Wind

Screen Washers, Wooden Steering

Wheel, Fog Lights, Luggage and Ski

Carrier. To the U.S. market it would be

unusual insomuch as it is right hand

drive. It was built like this in the factory.

The only other change I have made

recently is to install a speedometer

showing kilometres and kilometres per

hour as we no longer use miles in New

Zealand. The genuine reading on the

speedometer is 79,000 kilometres.

I am enclosing a photograph of my car

which could only have been taken in

New Zealand, outside the entrance to a

Maori Pa. This was the Maori word for a

fortified village in which they lived. The

entrance gates were typical of the pre

European time in New Zealand. This

Maori Pa is not in daily use, it is purely

erected as a tourist attraction as to how

the Maoris used to live. Both these

locations are in Rotorua which is a big

centre of Maori population and also the

centre of our thermal activity, boiling

pools, gysers, boiling mud, etc. and is

located in the central North Island of

New Zealand." Barry Owen,

Christchurch, N.Z.

"Putting a "B" steering column into an

"A" coupe and everything is fine except

somehow the dashboard turn signal

indicator is on when it should beoff and

vice versa. Why?" (Letter not signed)

"Re - Richard Williams' inquiry about air

conditioning for the 356. Enclosed is a

copy of a Cary and Driver (December

1961) article that indicated that A/C was

an option. This may be common

knowledge to old 356 enthusiasts, but it

is news to me.

Also, A/C units on aircooled engines

are not "poison". I have a '71 VW that I

bought new with air. It now has over

75,000 miles with no engine problems to


I plan to install A/C on my 356C as

soon as I get it converted to 12 volts. So, I

would be interested in hearing from

Richard on his progress in installing A/C

in his car." Ken Temple, Fayetteville, NC

"As you may recall California went to 7

digit personal plates last year. Like other

Porsche owners that were aware of this

event I spent more then a few nights

dreaming that MY 356 would receive the

coveted PORSCHE plate. So off I went,

$25.00 in hand, to buy my chance at

being the lucky one. A friend that

worked for the Department of Motor

Vehicles was kind enough to inform me

that quite a few other Porschephiles had

also expressed this interest. That put my

chances at 1 in 150 or more ... The

solution came to me in a blinding flash

and seemed logical that most other

people couldn't spell either so why not

transpose S & C and apply for PORCSHE.

Well that's what I did and that's what I

got ... I later found out that over 30

others had the same idea too so I was

more lucky then wise." Gregory

Knowles-Stout, Arroyo Grande, CA



Vic Skirmants, Editor

If you have a Zenith-equipped Porsche usin the metal air filter cans, they are

probably loose. If they are loose, they can aaua 7 ly wear a hole in the top oft he carb

or a gas line. Also, the right one can rotate and keep the throttle linkage from

returning. OK, so you're aware of this, but you've tried tightening the slotted bolt

for the clamp with a screwdriver, and thecleaner isstill loose. Note that the bolt also

has a hexagonal head. Snug it down with a socket. Don't overtighten! Previous

overtightening is probably the cause of your problem in the first place. If you can't

get the socket to grab the bolt head because the clamp is distorted enough to keep .

the socket from fully engaging the bolt, put a flat washer or two under the bolt head

to space it out. If after all this you find the bolt head is rounded because of the

ever-present problem of "previous owner abuse", grind or file the sides of the hex

until you can get some kind of sock@ on it.

While on Zenith carbs, a ti^ on what

to check if your accelerator pumps

aren't delivering any fuel. If just one of

the two per side is not delivering, check

the nozzle and jet for clogging. Usually

if both are dry, the problem is

elsewhere, although in a rare case

maybe both are plugged. Check the

accelerator plunger for wear - through

at the side, check the pump pressure

valve beneath the plunger for sticking.

Also check the pump suction valve next

to it for sticking. This suction valve has

the same thread size as the plug in the

bottom side of the carb body and I have

seen several carbs where these two

items got switched. Lack of the suction

valve of course permits the plunger to

push the fuel back into the float bowl

instead of through the accelerator

pump circuit.

White still on Zenith carbs, I'd like to

say a few words in their defense. To

those who say "toss them away and put

on Solexes", have you ever had your

Zeniths adjusted correctly? I don't mean

only synchronization, but most

importantly float levels and accelerator

pump delivery. You won't find Zeniths

~dling terribly due to worn carb bodies

and throttle shafts, like the Solexes do.

When rebuildkt an engine, you

should always pull t e oil pressure relief

valve plunger and oil by-pass valve

plunger in the timing cover to clean

them. If either one is stuck, take a W

pipe tap and screw it into the open end

of the plunger. Turn the tap until the

plunger breaks loose, and then use the

tap to pull out the plunger.

National racing update: My next race

after Elkhart Lake was at Road Atlanta .

June 10. This was another Bonus

National, with nine 356's representing

the marque. Weldon Scrogham, D.C. ,

region, and Herb Forrest, N.E.

Oklahoma, DNF'd after two laps when .

Weldon's speedster and Herb's roadster

collided in turn one. Bill Allen, Atlanta

region, roadster, was running third

when he spun in turn one and couldn't .'

restart. He did complete enough laps to

be credited with tenth place. Bob Lane,

Atlanta, roadster, was ninth, Bill

Gorman, Atlanta, speedster, was eighth.

Stan Werner, in a speedster from

Tennessee, was seventh. I was running

third when an exhaust rocker arm

broke. I decided to stay on the track and

managed a fifth place finish. Joe Cogbill,

Atlanta, speedster, was fourth, with

John O'Steen of Cincinnati in a

speedster finishing second. Dave Finch

of Ann Arbor, MI, won in a 914.

Next race, Blackhawk Farms in Illinois,

june 17. My roadster was the only 356

there, but did come in first in E,

Production and set a new class record.

The following weekend, June 24, we

were at Indianapolis Raceway Park.

Three 356's were in attendance. Stan

Adams, Cincinnati, in a B cabriolet, was

a DNF. I could only get fifth place, and

John O'Steen ran away with first.

July 8, Mid-Ohio Bonus National.

Four 356's. Stan Adams didn't start

because of a stripped gear. John

Thomson, Ann Arbor, speedster, DNF'd

with an engine problem. I pulled down

sixth, while John O'Steen was relegated -


to third after some clutch problems

forced him out of first.

July 22, Nelson Ledges, Ohio. I was the

only 356 representative for this

Northeast Division National. Came in

second to an MGB after Finch's 914 hit

someone's oil on the final turn and spun

from the lead to a third place.

Come on, you guys, I haven't received

one letter or postcard to tell me how all

the other 356's are doing in this country.

Jim Perrin, Historian

In this article, I plan to cover several

topics which may be of interest to

REGlSTR Y readers.

"The 911 As A Collector Car"

The 356 'C' series Porsche was

introduced at the 1963 Frankfurt auto

show. A major feature being high-

lighted was, of course, the four wheel

disc brakes of the 356 'C'. There was also

another significant introduction at the

same show - the 911. The 911 was in

production by 1965. If you include 1965

as a production year, the911 has been in

production for 15 years which is only

two less than the 356 series.

What 356 enthusiasts may not realize

is that many 911 owners are already

restoring their early model 911's. The

interest in restoration and preservation

of the 911 at this point in its evolution

and while it isstill a production mode1,is

far higher than it was for the 356series at

a similar point in time. The number of

people who bought a brand new 356

with the primary purpose being to keep

it as a collector car and to drive it very

few miles is extremely small. There are,

however, more than a few people who

have bought 911's to be a collector car

for the future, and who are caring and

maintaining them with that thought in


"The Race Car As An Instant

Collector Car"

Not too many years ago, a Porsche

race car that was several seasons old

suffered a substantial amount of

depreciation. Race cars still do show

appreciable depreciation, but a new

economic factor has entered the

market. That factor is the increased

number of people collecting Porsches

and the new hobby of vintageor historic

sports car racing. I know of a number of

almost new (one to two seasons old)

Porsche race cars that have been

purchased by collectors who do not

plan to run them in historic sports car

races. Other recent Porsche race cars,

perhaps four or five years old, have

been purchased by individuals planning

to run them in historic sports car races.

I saw a single turbo 935 entered at the

1978 6 Hour Watkins Glen race which

was driven by Otis Chandler and a co-

driver. I expected to see the car appear

in a year or two in Chandler's collection

as a retired race car, but I was mistaken.

He sold the car to the Dick Barbour

racing team and bought a new 1979

Turbo from the Porsche factory.

"The AFN, Ltd. Parts Sale"

AFN, Ltd. has been the importer of

Porsches into England since the 1950's. I

was recently in London for a few days

and, by chance, happened to be there

the weekend of an unusual sale. AFN

knew they had a fair number of older

parts which weren't selling well and

were taking up needed shelf space.

With encouragement from members of

the Porsche Club of Great Britain, they

decided to have a sale of these parts,

apparently including almost all of their

356 parts.

I was invited to the sale and arrived

early on the first morning of the two day

sale. By the time the doors opened at 10

A.M., there were perhaps 50

enthusiastic buyers waiting. Most of the

parts were spread out on the floor of a

very large room that had been cleared

for the sale. In addition to the 356 parts,

there were also some 911 and 914 parts.

The 356 parts included mechanical

parts, body parts including sheet metal,

and trim pieces. As the sale progressed,

many prizes were found by the buyers.

One individual who was rebuilding a

Carrera 2 engine managed to find some

needed parts and an engine gasket set.

A couple with two small children were

delighted to acquire a Reutter 356

luggage rack. An individual with an

early 356 found the 16 inch wheels he'd

been looking for.

I also managed to find a few desirable

items including a chrome horn ringfora

'B' or 'C' steering wheel, a large supply

of the rubber snubbers which are fitted

to the jack-holding clamps on 356's to

prevent the jack from rattling, the

rectangular sheet metal air channel

plate which runs between the two

heater boxes and which is missing from

most cars, an oil breather for my 'A'

(ever see a new one with no rust

inside?), an accessory kit of spare lamps,

and last but not least, a 3A and 3C close-

ratio gear.

The sale was followed by a visit to the

local pub where several of the other

individuals who attended the sale and I

swapped stories about our good finds at

the AFN sale. It will be a long time

before I forget my enjoyable visit to

London. The next time I'm there I may

even have time to do some sightseeing1


Brett Johnson, Editor

Since last we talked I have received a few interesting pieces

of information. It is perhaps unfortunate that the way this

column is written allows feed back to appear usually four

months after initial publication. This will be eventually be

remedied by the completion of all this nonsense planned for

the mid 1980's.

First let me point out that illustration 55a on page9of Vol. 5

No. 5 is in fact the Convertible D/Roadster top frame as this

was unfortunately unreferenced in the text of the article.

I received a letter from Barry Owen of Christchurch, New

Zealand with information and in fact a Xerox of a Golde

Sunroof Catalog. The firm now called Rockwell Golde GmbH

of Frankfurt, West Germany has apparently been quite

cooperative and helpful in supplying parts to him as needed

i-irough the years. However, when our own silver-tongued

legal advisor attempted to acquire some pieces direct he was

referred to: American Sunroof Corp., 18640 Walnut St.,

Southgate, MI 48195.

Also concerning sunroofs I received a letter from Alan

Davis of Long Beach, CA, who owns a '59 Cabriolet with a

factory installed manual sunroof in its removable hardtop. I

have received additional information in the form of a copy of

a 356C accessories manual from Bud West and three more

cars have joined the photo library. I believe I have saturated

the '55 Speedster file, but I'm still short on other models.

I've spoken to a few folks who assert that the lock post on a

Cabriolet is actually wider near the top than that of a Coupe.

This does appear to be so; however, the difference is not

particularly great.


On Coupes this piece below the rear window and above

the deck lid is officially part of the top. As mentioned earlier

the only change in this piece was between T-5 and T-6 3568's

with the change in rear windows and rear lids.

The first place this piece for Cabriolet appears is illustration

31 in the '55 parts book. It appears again in illustration 32 in

the 356 A book. As there is no mention of this in the '53 book I

can only assume that this piece remained unchanged from

1950-1957. The change at chassis 150.001 corresponds tops.

This version remained unchanged throughout the

production of 356C model.

The rear cowl of the Speedster was considerably different

than that of Cabriolet. It was considerably longer and had no

recess for the tack strip. It is shown in illustration 45 in the'55

parts book. In the A parts book two alternate parts numbers

are given, again this seems to indicatea change in numbering

system rather than an actual change in part configuration.

A change is noted by part number at the introduction of

the Convertible D. The change likely has to do with the sha

of the cockpit rear as no other visible change is noted. T r e

3568 Roadster was unchanged from Convertible D.


While the basicshape of various body styles of 356 Porsches

is essentially the same, the contours of the rear fenders are

subtly different. This can be visualized in side view pictures.

The fast-back roof line of the Coupe is integrated into the

rear fender by a more steeply vertical accent than the open

cars. This prevents rear fenders from being easily adapted

between models. Ask the guy who put a Coupe fender on a

Cabriolet. Ask me.

lllustration 18 of the '53 parts manual illustrates the rear

fender of a Coupe. No where in this parts manual is a

Cabriolet fender described. As the top edges as ,well as

contouring of these fenders are radically different one can

only assume this was an omission.

lllustration 30 from the '55 book shows the Coupe fender

which bears the same part number as that of the earlier car.

lllustration 31 shows the Cabriolet fender. Note the

tremendous difference. lllustration 45 shows the Speedster

fender, it is lower due to the sloping door as well as very

different along the top edge. Contoursappear to be similar to

the Cabriolet.

The 356A with its smaller 15" diameter wheels had slightly

altered wheel arch profiles in the rear. These were "opened

up" and allowed a wider rim. The Carrera-Speedster rear

fenders are listed separately and described as having "wire


356A Coupe fenders remained unchanged from 56-59 with

no alternate number listed for Carrera. The drawing,

illustration 51 of the A parts book is nearly identical to that of

illustration 30 in the '55 book. Aside from the wheel arch

there appears to be no significant change.

lllustration 52 from the A parts book shows the early

a Cabriolet rear fender. This was changed at chassis150.001 to

accomodate the new top mechanism and removable

hardtop. This difference can be seen at the top leading edge

of the fender. No changes in contouring were apparent. The

Convertible D rear fender was changed from that of the

Speedster. The difference was likely around the rear cowl as

contours should have been nearly identical.

From illustration 5/5 of the B parts book the difference

from the A is readily apparent, the indentation and hole for

the rear bumper. lllustration 5/6 shows the different fender

for the open car. The Cabriolet was different from Roadster,

again along the top.

The T-6 Coupe illustration (5/5a) shows a different fender.

This was due to the altered rear lid and cowl area. The basic

shape was essentially unaltered. T-6 Cabriolets and Roadsters

were unchanged from their T-5 counterparts in this area.

356C models were identical to T-6 cars.


Rear lids of Coupes and open cars are basically similar in

appearance giving the false impression that they are perhaps

interchangeable. While T-6 bodied cars are quite obviously

different the earlier cars can be confusing. The easy way to

differentiate between them is to look at the inside of the lid.

On an early Coupe lid the hinges mount on that thing that sits

under the grille. Hinges are less than 1 foot apart. On open

cars hinges mount on 2 reinforced struts placed solely for that

purpose. More simply, hinges are more than 1 foot apart.

When one gets to double vent cars the difference in size of

the lids is tremendous, the Coupe being much larger. The

hinge location arrangement is altered. Coupesand open cars

are both more than 1 foot.

The rear lid listed in the '53 parts book and the one listed in

the '55 book have differing part numbers. A pooling of the

greatest minds in Indianapolis decided that this is a hoax, and

that they are in fact the same. Again as with fenders, Cabriolet

lids are not mentioned until the '55 parts book. From the

illustrations and accompanying photos the early lid may be

indentified by the flat engine protector (below the vent) with

two longitudinal ribs. Cabriolet and Speedster models shared

the same lid. In fact, to my knowledge on all open cars,as well

as Karmann hardtops, rear lids may be freely interchanged

1950-1965 requiring adaptation of only the latch mechanism.

356A lids areeasily differentiated from 356 lids by the bump

in the middle of the engine protector installed to

accomodate the Carrera engine. Coupe and Cabriolet aside

from that are essentially identical to earlier models.

Three separate Coupe lids are listed in the A parts book.

The first 644.512.001.00 is the standard lid shown in illustration

51. The two others listed 644.512.001.01 and 644.512.001.10are

both listed for Carrera models. One is steel one isaluminum.

My question is are these both single grilled louvered lids or

both dual vent lids or one of each or what? David Seeland,

where are you?

I unfortunately do not have any black and white photos of

either of these lids. And their associated carburetor

shrouding. If anyone does please feel free to send them


Moving along to the 356A Cabriolet/Speedster. There are

again three listing the first 644.512.001.20again is standard lid.

The 644.512.001.21 is listed for Carrera Cabriolets. And the

third 644.312.001.50 is the aluminum variety listed for

Speedster GT's.

The standard rear lids on T-5 356B cars were unchanged

from 356A. The coming of the T-6 meant the lid of the Coupe

grew in overall size, changed shape slightly, and sprouted an

additional air vent. The open car version only sprouted the

vent. The engine protector is much larger on these lids and

has a row of louvers down the middle. There were

unchanged on C models.

Tail panels as all the other external sheet metal pieces of

the rear half of the car vary between body styles contouring

of the fenders and especially the shaping around the rear lid

area make them difficult at best to interchange. This is only

true in the case of post '58 cars. The only tail shown in the 53

book is 356.51.315 Coupe tail section. This according to the

'55 parts book is appropriate for Coupe 5001-11360 and

Cabriolet 5015-10270. A second tail oddly enough with the

same part number is said to fit Coupe 11361-11778 and

Cabriolet 10271-15050. A third tail 644.503.081.00 is listed for

Coupes from 11779 and Cabriolets from 15051. This

corresponds to the bumper changes which werediscussed at

some length in the Feb/March issue .... wellalmost. From this

Different bumpers, taillights height and other subtle

modifications in shapecame with the 356B. There wasone tail

T-6 meant another change in the Coupe tail due to the

revised deck lid. The T-6 Cabriolet also changed part

number. I haven't really got a good reason why seeing how

fenders, lid and bumper remain the same as the T-5. The only

thing I can think of is holes for the scripts would be different.

Any other theories?

356 models were once again unchanged from T-6 B.

the world's worst 356 limericks

This column has been getting far too serious lately, and some relief is needed.

Brace yourself, for what follows is only one step away from the very bottom (I draw

the line at puns). Some one out there surely loves serious poetry. At this very

moment, he is running forthe bathroom,clutching hisstomache. I hope he makes

it. The lure of the limerick was simply overwhelming and in the end proved

irresistible. Just this once, OK? It won't happen again. Promise.

Some of these are pretty fanciful, and others are merely apocryphal (whew!).

The one about the Karman Hardtop is based on a real car, though. It had metallic

maroon paint and was trimmed inside with fur and stuff. The Photographic Editor

kindly lent his rhymable name to one I sort-of wrote about myself. He said he

Tim Herman, four-cam enthusiast

extraordinaire from Hickory, South

Carolina has written this months

forum.* Tim, in addition to doing me a

favor by writing up the restoration of a

Carrera GT Speedster, has done all four-

cam owners a favor by what I regard asa

sim I incredible feat - he has "on the

shekY new piston and cylinder sets for

any four-cam engine (or two-piece case

pushrod engine)!

We did it! The 1958 pushrod

Speedster got unpainted and painted

and driven to the Parade. In one month

we went from three and two-thirds

paintless Porsches to four paintless

Porsches and back to three paintless

Porsches. At 2:30 a.m. Saturday I was

drilling holes for the rear-view mirror.

The Parade's first event was at 6:00 p.m.

Sunday. At 3:30a.m. we left Denver for a

straight-through drive to Reston,

Virginia site of this years Parade. You

may notice I said we. My wife Bette dug

in and provided both perspiration (lots

of sanding, including one all-night

session) and inspiration ("If you don't

put primer on tonight, I'm going to put

it on with a brush!').

Speedsters are just pure unadulter-

corn and listening to

We f ad a four-cam meeting in our

room at the Parade and with very little

publicity 21 four-cam owners showed

up. We talked about parts, expertise,

communicating, and an owners list until

things broke down into general

pandemonium. It was fun meeting

fellow four-cam enthusiasts. One

engineless Carrera Speedster found an

showed the value of being able to

communicate with other people with

similar enthusiasms and problems. I

Floor Pans We manufacture new floor mans; original pans have not been available from the Factory

for several years. After considerable expense, we have created a floor pan with the identical

impressions and appearance as the original spare part. To facilitate repair work, there is

approximately 12 mm (X") extra material around the perimeter of our pan. When properly

installed, it is extremely difficult to see that the pan has been replaced. Stamped from

20-guage steel, these pans are offered in front and rear halves to facilitate installation. The

center lap joint is exactly the same as the original factory 2-piecestamping. Seat mounts for

356A through early 3568, and toe board mounts are supplied with the purchaseof an entire

pan. For late 3568 and 356C, the seat mounts may be refitted.

If you are considering the complete restoration of any type 356, you will probably need a

new floor. Our floor pan is the only way to properly do the job,and to insure the structural

integrity of the body.

Boy, talk about running out of gas1

Where are all those great Porsche books

that seemed to be proliferating like

rabbits a few months ago?

I hear Susann Miller will be editing a

new Porsche oriented magazine to be

forthcoming in the near future. Also in

the works hopefully will be another

work on Porsche sales literature.

In the meantime I've scraped the

bottom of my bookshelves and would

like to bring your attention to PEU/RAI

which is volume 15 of "the world of

automobiles", An I llustrated

Encyclopedia of the Motor Car,

distributed by Columbia House, 51 West

52nd Street, N.Y.C., N.Y. 10019. This is a

comprehensive set of books that truly

lives up to it's name. Published in

London, England it features many color

photos and drawings as well as black and

white. Not up to Automobile Quarterly

quality standards the reproductions and

drawings are never the less quite good.

We are only represented by 10 photos

(no drawings) if you count Formula One

and Two cars and the 904. The particular

chapter is contributed by L.J.K. Setright

and though it contains nothing new it

certainly will round out any Porsche

fanatic's library. Speaking of nothing

new, we'd like to start in with Porsche

Preservation Pointers: Porsche

"Parallel" Parking: This is the simple


technique of parking on a slight

diagonal when having to park in parking

fields such as at the beach, shopping

centers etc. The usual way is to wind up

taking up two parking spaces while

parked at such an angle so that you can

still back straight out without worrying

about adjacent vehicles. If you are in a

lot that is not overly crowded you might

even go in deeper so as to take up four

parking slots. Probably more subtle and

sophisticated is to park in an end

parking spot that has a curb on oneside.

By parking the wheels right at the curb

you eliminate the possibility of getting

dinged on the drivers side and there is

plenty of space on the passenger side so

that you shouldn't get nipped there

my battery compartment floor, it had


Even before I was "scooped" on the

appearance of a 356 in Woody Allen's

Manhattan I had been thinking of

compiling a list of movies in which our

favorite car has appeared.

The last few years the 911 has started

getting the play for pointing up

characterizations in movies and TV. One

type of character will be driving a 911,

one of- a different ilk a Mercedes. It

seems rarely do you see a 356 except

maybe in the background of films shot

in California. It was therefore refreshing

to see the 356 Cabriolet playing a

significant role in Manhattan.

Remember how it's purchase involved

the big decision that we all are familiar

with I'm sure. How about sending in the

seeing a 356 in was that great Paul

about the height of the speedster's

do you recall or have seen lately? Let us

know and see your name in print. Please

send in something. We need the

Gene Babow

With this reduced gas conspiracy, we

have a little time to catch up on all those

little things that should have been done

a long time ago.

How about Porsche ads, those that

have appeared in magazines of all

kinds? I don't claim to have them all, but

I have quite a few.

The earliest I can find is April 1952, in

Road & Track. It shows a coupe

(limosine) and describes the 356. It is a

dealer ad, Competition Motors, North

Hollywood, CA. In 1955, Max Hoffman

took over the ads which make you

weep- Speedster, $2995; and the

Continental coupe and "convertible".

One of the last Hoffman ads is for a

convertible D.

With the introduction of the 3568,

Porsche of America took over

advertising with the phrase, "All it

shares with other cars is the road!" One

ad shows the 1939 Berlin-Rome car. In

1963, came the Ken Purdy says, ads. The

costliest must have been in the March

1963 Road & Track magazine.

This ad is a six page color spread of the

late 356B (T-6), plus an extra black and

white page listing all dealers. It sits in the

center spread. It is worth obtaining.

The "C" ads shows the prices about

$4200 and more Purdy says. The booklet

"The Porsche Story" by Ken Purdy is

quite a book. Ken Purdy was thedean of

auto writers and had a beautiful way

with words. You do have that booklet,

don't you?

An ad in 1971 showed the new911 and

914, but more importantly a Formula II,

RS-61 and RSK coupe along with the

1922 Sasha and Cisitalia. A 1978 ad lists all

important victories from 1948. The

Hoffman ad in 1955 showing a Spyder

didn't list as many.

To further tantalize, there are ads

from other companies showing

Porsches. In 1955, Dunlop shows a 550,

Castrol shows a coupe, Vilen Haan

(West 10s Angeles accessory house)

borrowed a 1963 cabriolet from

Porsche, Bell helmets shows a 904,

Pennzoil shows a 1600 5-90 engine.

I'm sure there are more. Most of the

earlier ads are from Road & Track, but

the SCCA magazine had some. It makes


for an interesting side hobby, and as yet

not too expensive.

(Editor's note: Gene also writes, "... I

find the collection challenging (always

looking for another one), frustrating

($2995 for a Speedster in '55) and

rewarding (it's fun!). I have more than

770 different ads; I'm sure there are

more. I also collect stamps with autos ...

there are 77 stamps with Porsche

themes. The Paraguay souvenier sheet

shows the 356 prototype roadster, the

Austrian stamp shows Professor Porsche

and a stamp from Jordan shows King

Hussein in his former 904. All the rest of

the stamps show later Porsches.)

the story

of killer Pat Ertel

I had never believed that inanimate

objects were capable of possessing

personalities until I became involved

with 356's. For example my Speedster is

very lady like, gently competent and

delicate but with a tendancy to be a bit

tempermental. My coupe is the strong

silent type that smashes through rain

and hail, up mountains and across

deserts with aplomb. And Killer, Killer is

an S.O.B. Killer is my autocross engine.

Killer hates me.

Killer got his name one afternoon

about three years ago when I lovingly

placed his counterweighted, shot

peened, balanced, polished, and

magnafluxed crankshaft into his

crankcase ... the first time. The name

Killer came to me because that is what I

expected him to do to the Tigers and

Europas that were my autocross

competition. I could more accurately

have named him Harry Kari.

Killer was conceived on one autocross

Sunday immediately after a thorough

trouncing by both the Tiger and the

Europa. What I needed for the

Speedster was a better engine, one that

would produce some torque and still

rev. to 6,500 R.P.M. safely. An S/C wasn't

the ticket, no power at really low revs

and my C engine sure wasn't cutting it,

the valves floated at 5,200. After madly

shuffling through parts books, spec

sheets, and my parts stash in the

basement I had Killer's anatomy before

me. A nice light S-90 flywheel, C cam

and carbs, and S/C everything else was

the magic combination of ingredients

that would guarantee me fame and

glory. All I had to do was clear off a space

on the mantle for the trophies and go

out and glue that sucker together.


It was nine months before that engine

turned over on its own. There was a long

series of seeming accidents and

mistakes that should have warned me

that Killer was going to be a very

reluctant partner for my Speedster. The

crankshaft was lost for two months by

U.P.S. I sent the rods out to be

magnafluxed and it took the guy six

weeks to confess that he had lost one. At

the time I was furious with both UPS and

the machine shop but I have since

absolved them of blame. I know now

that it wasn't their fault. Those parts

weren't lost. They were hiding.

The 1976 autocross season was


drawing to a close when Killer ran for

the first time. I am a veteran of nearly a

hundred VW engine rebuilds and

several Porsche jobs and I have never

experienced a flywheel coming off ...

until Killer. It happened halfway around

the block on his first voyage.

Champaign was still glistening on the

rocker covers when a horrendous

rumble came from deep in the

Speedster's running gear. The car was

ignominiously pushed into the garage ...

the first time.

I tore Killer apart and sent his crank

and flywheel to California to be

repaired while the rest of Killer's

anatomy spent the winter strewn across

the workbench. I would occasionally try

to clear a space to fix the toaster or

rehandle an axe but in a few hours a

greasy cylinder head or a dripping oil

cooler would mysteriously appear in the

cleared space. Even in his dismembered

form Killer was haunting me.

It was May, 1977 and two autocrosses

had been run before I got Killer back

together ... the second time. Little

problems just kept popping up. The

snap rings that hold the wrist pins in

dived for the depths of the crankcase

every time I tried to install them.

Cylinder head washers kept crawling

down cracks in the workbench. A

million little things happened to keep

Killer up on the engine stand and my

blood pressure up in the critical zone.

Once I had wrestled him together Killer

ran for about seventy miles before he

decided he'd had enough and his

crankshaft stopped. The Speedster was

abjectly shoved into the garage.

Disgusted, I left Killer to relax happily on

the garage floor and contested the

remainder of the autocross season in a

borrowed 914. Humiliating!

Many months passed before I had

Killer ready to takeanother stab at doing

what engines are supposed to do ... for

the third time. I managed to get about

200 miles of use out of the old boy

before the warm-up event for the 1978

season in March. The ground was

covered with snow when I fired up Killer

to drive to the track. Halfway down the

driveway the crankshaft stopped ...

seized ... wouldn't turn. The embarrass-

ment! Bad enough Killer should crap on

me again at all but did he have to cough

his cookies in my driveway, in front of

everyone, on the way TO the event? It

would have been so much more

dramatic, so much more justifiable for

him to blow to pieces at seven grand on

the back straight. Not Killer, his style is

to squeak to a stop in the driveway. That

engine sure knew how to irritate me and

was capitalizing on every opportunity to

do so.

I yanked the turkey out again and

called my friend Thomas to help carry

him to the basement where I was

planning to perform unmentionable

acts of destruction. Killer must have

been reading my mind because halfway

to the basement door he leapt out of my

hands and into Thomas'sarms. Thomas's

body is not equipped to deal with all 250

pounds of a Porsche engine and

surrendered immediately, landing in a

heap in the snow with Killer on top. As I

pulled Thomas out of the bleeding mass

of arms, legs, pipes, and wires I decided

that this was definitely going to be a two

six-pak afternoon. The orderly at the

hospital where I took Thomas had

different plans for me. He said I should

wait in the emergency room for six

hours while they put a cast on his leg,

which was broken in two places, and

stitched up his fingers, which was going

to take a whole LOT of thread. I was

becoming convinced that inanimate

objects are indeed capable of malice.

Yes, Killer hated me and the feeling was

becoming mutual.

I had to get some more friends to help

get Killer into the basement quickly,

before news of his foul disposition got

out. After disassembling him once again

I spent a month measuring and

checking everything from the rocker

covers to the oil passages to find out why

Killer's crankshaft stopped turning.

Everything measurable checked out

O.K. I tried a different crankcase

because I couldn't accurately measure

the alignment of the old one. After I

buttoned him all back together again ...

the fourth time, I went searching for

another friend to help carry him out of

the basement. It occured to me that

Killer had better work this time because

I was running out of friends. I got him

back in the Speedster and he has run for

about 500 miles now, won an autocross

championship, and behaves like a

perfect gentleman. To this day I don't

know if there was something wrong

with the old case or Killer just sensed

that I had finally endured all of his antics

that I could. One thing is for sure. If that

crankshaft stops again, Killer is going to

become part of a landfill, the S.O.B.


i remember the day

. Bob Gummow

During the year of 1958 we were using a Coupe DeVillefor

transportation when the thought entered my mind that there

must be a better way to get around. Consulting with my

friend, Virginia, I decided that I might like to try one of those

"sportsJ' cars. But which one-- a Corvette, not really; an

Austin-Healley, a Jaguar, Triumph, MG, Alfa Romeo? What a

dilemma. To help sort them out I turned to Road & Track and

Sports Cars Illustrated, reading their road tests and

evaluations. One Marque soon emerged from the morass

with consistently excellent ratings-- the reports usually

ending with the observation "costs more, but worth itJ' the

Porsche, what else?

I remembered seeing those strange little cars, not in great

abundance, while strolling the streets of Frankfurt during my

tour with the U.S. Army in 1954. Now, back home in my

agrarian society in Illinois, I decided that I would like to own


But Porsche dealers weren't to be found in Rockton,

Illinois, population 1200. So, consulting an imported car

dealer listing, off we went o Milwaukee. The first dealership

we visited didn't handle Porsches but they recommended

that we go to Baumgartner Motors and ask for Buz Hahn. Buz

was, unfortunately, out to lunch (for that matter, he still is)

but there in the corner of their small showroom sat 106062, in

Meissen Blau. A deal was made-- the Coupe DeVille was

traded on the Porsche.

The 356 was not to be a weekend toy, but a car for all














The kits are presently available in original Black,

Red, and Tan for the following models:





seasons. And all seasons for all reasons it was, going to all PCA

Chicago Region events, several Porsche Parades and

numerous trips throughout the US., in addition to the

mundane things such as hauling groceries, wallpaper

steamers, balled and burlapped nursery stock, etc.

Throughout the seven continuous years of this service and

72,000 miles, our 356 did not fail us once. How does one

improve on the car? You don't.

It was now 1966 and our 356A had seen the B & C Series

come and go. The 911's were here in numbers. Should we... 1

No, old 106062 was no longer just a car. The homely little

thing with the stepped on nose had become a ... well, you

know, sort of a friend. Minor areas of rust had begun to

appear on the fenders-- the bottom sheet metal and bellypan

were perfect.

We used a hot water six to eat the snowballs while the

Coupe underwent restoration, which is another story. While

the restoration may not be authentic by today's desperate

standards, it was good enough to garner 16firsts in 16 Porsche

Concours events, beginning with the Manhattan in 1972.

Now the old Coupe sits out the winters under its MG

Mitten in a heated garage. It deserves it. Yes, I remember the

day ... 20 years ago-~aich 28,1959. It was a good day.
