Porsche 356 Silver Bullet Hot Rod

Published by on Nov 23rd, 2012, No Comments

This is the Porsche 365 Silver Bullet Hot Rod and it is truly something special.

Custom built by Jeff Dutton in 1992, this vehicle is based on a 1955 356 Continental Coupe and 914-6 chassis with a philosophy of lightness and strength.

The Porsche has been fitted with a mid-mounted 3-litre 911 engine with Weber carburators, a 915 5-speed gearbox, 17-inch disc wheels, 718 RSK style side vents, a driver’s side mirror and engine and transmission access covers.

The interior of the vehicle has green leather bucket seats, wood trimmed steering wheel and dashboard fitted with a Telefunken radio speaker aperture. The door panels are simply polished stamped aluminum panels and some of the instrumentation has been sourced from a 911.  In between the seats is an exposed shifter and ignition panel complete with a large red start button.
