I looked at a Porsche 3.2 Carrera this evening for a client. A 1988 coupe in silver.
My first impression of the Porsche was one of concern as I could see that some of the paintwork was fresh, and newly painted cars worry me – it’s all too easy for someone to paint over all sorts of nasties.
However, my mind was put at ease by the extensive history file which shows that s lot of time and only had been spent on getting the bodywork up together. The usual areas had been dealt with by Francis Tuthill; sills, wings, B posts and so on. Oddly, though, the work had been done bit by bit over a number of years. An expensive way of doing it but maybe the owner wanted to spread the cost. Unfortunately, it did mean that some of the paint looked newer than other parts. Y, I’d have liked to have seen a full respray after the bodywork had been resolved.
No worries, though, as it was a nicely presented Porsche that drove well and was sensibly priced. And good 3.2 Carreras are few and far between.
