Video: Leno profiles 356 street-rod in sheep's clothing

Tuesday, October 13, 2015

The most recent episode of Jay Leno's Garage is nearly 30-minutes of Porsche 356 goodness. The owner of a 1964 356C that just went through a restoration gives us a short walkaround of his car followed by indepth observations by early Porsche expert John Willhoit, who owns the business that performed the restoration.

If you can push through 20-or-so minutes of Leno and Willhoit geeking out on the finer details of hot-rodding a 356, you're bound to learn something about what it takes to perform a top-flight 356 restoration, how Willhiot squeezes 145 horsepower from a 2.1-liter flat-four, what to look for in motor oil for classic cars, and more. And then Leno takes the old Porsche out for a drive. Scroll down to watch the video.
