The Porsche 356 was designed by Ferry Porsche (Ferdinand's son). He found that having a smaller car with a bigger engine was better than a big car with a big engine. With that in mind he created the 356. It had a 4 cylinder that was air cooled mounted in the rear with rear wheel drive. Of the 4 types of 356, this particular car is a 356 B with 30,963 made of those between 1959 and 1963.
Our customer was involved in a fender bender, damaging the right front corner of this 1960 Porsche 356 Roadster. We performed the necessary metal, lead, body work and paint to get it back to new condition.

Here we see the significant 'can-opener' damage to the front right fender of the 356.
The replacement fender was welded into place, leaded properly and the bodywork performed to recreate the factory-correct appearance.
The damaged fender can be seen here, next to the progress on the bodywork.
