Leno Can't Believe This Guy Spent Seven Years Restoring Porsche 356

Video / 39 Comments

500 hours were spent just repairing the rust.

Painstakingly restoring classic Porsches is something California-based Singer has mastered. But the company is not alone in this endeavor. This particular beauty is the handiwork of Chuck Olenyk who claims to have spent over seven years putting around 2000 hours of labor into bringing this 1957 Porsche 356A back to life. It carries the "Outlaw" moniker, as the restoration is not completely period correct.

Built from the ground up, the 356A has been fitted with a 115-hp Porsche 912 engine, a transmission from a 356B, brakes from a 356C, and a modified replica roof built by Intermecchnica. It looks and sounds sensational. Check it out for yourself.
