Hi mates,

I am an italian 58 y. former classic vehicles mechanic and owner, and like to enter in this nice Porsche world while waiting to buy another , maybe "ultimate"  Ferdy Porsche's masterpiece. 

My love for aircooled boxer engined cars started lot of years ago, with a series of standard and tuned VWs I owned .

The last was a '69 Beetle 1500 cabriolet (but with a bit of 356 inside...) I restored to the highest standard by myself ... unfortunately sold some moths ago, due the money I need for another "project". 

After closing my old workshop eight years ago , now I'm involved in classic cars , motorcycles , airplanes and boats gauges reproduction.

The above items are mainly used as "automobilia"  and motoring furnishing accessories as for normal purpose.

I already did some Ferrari, Land Rover, Mercedes and Ford Mustang reproduction, but my present work is focused on a "king size" 356 Speedster dashboard panel copy, with working instruments and warning lights.

Note:  the above version cannot be fitted on the true car, due all gauge hands are moved by  little electric engines,, but materials , sizes and look of the cockpit and dials will be really similar to the original item with the leather top , too.

Now I consider a perfect working replica too expensive , nevertheless don't completely reject the idea to manufacture it in future, if there were some requests.

I apologize for my long presentation, but when a new foreign user cames in a forum, lot of question normally arrive, so like let you known about my background  avoiding to  steal space to more technical subjects.

Cheers.

Speed-o-meter

 

P.S. Sorry for the "enemy" Ferrari F1 '55 dashboard repro, but the 356 is still a work in progress....

Thanks for the warm welcome, pale.

My  apology was due the fact that a  tipical italian attitude is  "loving Ferrari only", while I have always appreciated the more affordable and simpler but not slow aircooled, too. 

 

Stay in contact: when the first prototypes will be ready for shooting, your feedbacks are welcome.
