The Engine and Trans are from 1961 and are correct to the car but do not match according to the Kardex.
Amazing dry straight car that has not really been messed with, has all of the original and correct components down to its original Golde sunroof, very rare tool kit, floor jack, Hella 128 fog lamps, original Porsche door and ignition keys, luggage rack with original ski straps in excellent condition.
Undercarriage is also excellent except for the battery pan has acid corrosion and needs to be replaced but the battery box is perfect, excellent original floors, longitudinals, jack spurs all the rear seat area and all 4 closing panels are great.
Body is also excellent with a wonderful body fit and gaps rust free doors etc. all body panels have the matching last 3 digits 336, the front right fender was replaced many years ago from the back of the headlight bucket just at the factory joint to the door. it can be redone to a metal finish or just leave it the way it is if you choose.
Interior looks like it was replaced many years ago but still in great shape and very correct, with all the important component with the car, original "B" steering wheel very rare these days in excellent condition, Blaupunkt radio, gauges, mirrors, visors, knobs, also has some very nice period Coco mats which were very popular in the 80's
