More often than not, the hardest projects end up being the most rewarding. Take this stunning refurbished 1962 Porsche 356B for instance.

Once forgotten in the back of a large workshop, this classic car was turned inside-out and almost completely rebuilt. The shop gave the original Porsche engine a big bore 1750cc kit, threw on Weber Dcoe 40” carburetors to give the vehicle a little extra oomph, and even lowered the suspension for better cornering. Disc brakes on the car were also updated, as were the shocks and battery (12V). More than just getting bunch of performance upgrades, the vehicle was also treated to an interior update that includes air-conditioning, a retro Bluetooth radio, and customized leather detailing throughout. All things said, this Porsche ended up being exactly what the buyer had hoped for – a beast of a vehicle with a classic body and all the comfort needed to be a genuine daily driver.
