1959 Kalahari beige Ragtop for sale

Now Rennsport is over we have to get back to real life… dreams of Porsches are nice, but don’t hold forever, at least not for me…:)  anyway one of the nicest weekends in my life, ever!

But duty calls so I continue my trip and had to check out this beauty… a real cool driver 1959 Ragtop, not perfect, but a rock solid super dry body, no rust what’s oever, and very charming mostly original sitting car, it had repaint here and there and touch up, and seat covers a zillion year ago… it comes from a pilot who sorted to original mechanics real well and this baby is just a BLAST to drive!
