This beautiful 1966 911 was originally dug out of a storage building in Gastonia, NC after sitting for over 20 years! Fortunately, the structure had concrete flooring and four walls which forbid any rust to infiltrate the chassis. Once the car was inventoried and given a good cleanup, it was apparent it had been re-sprayed once previously (crazing/crows feet were visible within a few feet). Given how original the car was otherwise, the owner's decided to give it the respect it deserved and have the car properly refinished. This beautiful early 911 has just undergone a bare-metal refinish in its original, lustrous Polo Red lacquer paint here at Carolina Coach Crafters. The interior, undercarriage, boot, and engine compartment of the vehicle remain as original. We are proud to be a part of such an amazing piece of Porsche history in one of the most original, well preserved early 1966 911's in the world!
It has been a very busy year here at Carolina Coach Crafters! Look for many exciting updates over the next month, unfortunately we suffered a massive data-loss so we are in the process of trying to recover many of our existing and new project photos - they will be added to the site as soon as possible. Until then, we are proud to present to you our beautiful, freshly restored 1965 Porsche 356 C Cabriolet. It is the only orange 1965 356 C Cabriolet in existence. This vehicle was restored from the ground-up here at Carolina Coach Crafters. This car is the product of almost 18 months worth of effort. All metal work, paint, upholstery, mechanical, etc was done here at Carolina Coach Crafters. We are pleased to be showing it this year in California!
We are once again excited to announce Carolina Coach Crafters has been featured in another great Porsche publication! Our good friend Sean Cridland once again published an excellent article focusing on Tim Lingerfelt's early career and his transition into creating Carolina Coach Crafters. Full article available on Sean Cridland's website HERE.
