This 1962 Porsche 356B T6 was restored and extensively modified 22 years ago by previous owner Bill Toburen, who consulted Gary Emory of Parts Obsolete on the build. The car was purchased by the current owner in 1999 and has been driven at Lime Rock Park and Watkins Glen, as well as to various car shows. FAT Performance built the 2.2-liter 914 engine, which features Weber carbs and is paired with a rebuilt 4-speed manual transaxle. Other details include rear fender flares, staggered 15 Fuchs, a Sachs clutch, SuperTrapp muffler, sliding canvas sunroof, center-hood fuel filler, louvered rear deck lid, 914 seats, a stainless steel roll bar, 4-point harnesses, and more. Recent service included undercarriage work in June 2018, as well as a tune-up and oil change in May. This 356 Outlaw is now being offered on dealer consignment with receipts dating back to 1994, a copy of a Porsche 356 workshop manual, a handwritten letter from Gary Emory, and a transferable Rhode Island registration in the current owners name.
The body is finished in Fjord Green and has been modified with a louvered single-grille rear deck lid, a tan sliding canvas sunroof, a center-hood fuel filler, a fender-mounted Raydyot aluminum racing mirror, stainless steel rear flairs, and headlight stone guards. Imperfections are said to include chips and stress cracks, as well as rust on the bottom of the drivers door. The finish can be seen from several angles in the photo gallery below.
Polished 15 Fuchs measure 7 and 8 in width and wear BF Goodrich tires. Finned drum brakes remain fitted, and close-ups of the wheels and other modifications can be seen in the gallery below. Fogging is noted in the corners of the windshield as pictured in the gallery, and window tint was added. The front and rear bumpers have been deleted.
The interior features tan 914 seats that have had their headrests removed and are fitted with 4-point Sabelt harnesses. Custom aluminum storage boxes have been added in place of the rear seats, and the cabin also features a Grant rosewood steering wheel with the horn button under the dash, and German weave carpets. A Pioneer CD player has been installed under the drivers seat but is said to be nonfunctional.
A stainless steel integrated roll bar was also fitted as part of the build. The odometer indicates just over 63k miles but is not believed to be accurate, and approximately 13k miles have been added by the current owner. The fuel gauge reportedly only works at a half tank or lower, and the original key is still used for the ignition and locks.
According to the seller, the 1974 Porsche 914 flat-four was built to 2.2 liters by FAT Performance. Other modifications include 40 IDF Weber carburetors, an oil cooler with stainless steel lines, a 200 horsepower-rated Sachs clutch, a SuperTrapp muffler, 12-volts conversion, and a BN4 electric heater. Some oil leakage is noted from the engine, and the battery reportedly discharges after about a week.
The 4-speed manual transaxle was also rebuilt in 1996. Work in 2016 included installing a new Facet fuel pump, fuel lines, filters, spark plugs, ignition wires, distributor, rotor, points, Blue Point coil, suspension components, axel boots, and an Optima battery, as well as rebuilding the brake master cylinder, adjusting the carburetors and valves, and servicing the wheels bearings.
The seller states that a refurbishment of the underside was carried out in June 2018 at Metal Doctors in Seekonk, Massachusetts. Additional lift photos can be seen in the photo gallery below.
Receipts from the build are included with the car, a sample of which can be viewed in the gallery below. Service from the past 24 years is also documented, and the most recent work was a tune-up, oil change, and inspection in May of this year.
The collection of documents dating back to 1994 includes a letter from Gary Emory congratulating Bill Toburen on the Outlaw build and issuing the car an Outlaw badge. Emory is said to have consulted on the project. Also included with the car are a reproduction Porsche 356 workshop manual and a car cover. The Outlaw badge itself is no longer with the car. A video showing the engine running and a view of the exterior and interior can be seen below.
