1964 Porsche 904 Carrera GTS Coupe

A tribute to automotive history and Porsche, a mint 1964 904 Carrera GTS Coupe is coming to auction. In 1964, Porsche introduced their infamous 911 and the 904, designed for road and track riding. The 904 was the first to place a fiberglass body over a steel chassis for a lightweight ride (1400 lbs) that killed on the track.

The 904 featured a four cylinder Type 587/3 engine that gave off 180 horsepower to sing praises for the brand. The particular 1964 Porsche 904 Carrera GTS Coupe up for auction was a new purchase for Italian driver Ernesto Prinoth who copped it with a silver metallic paint job with blue velour interior.

The car was sold to a Leslie Gunnarson who applied a California remake to the car with a red paint job, and upgraded interior. Aside from that Gunnarson left the original engine and gearbox intact, and stored the 904 Carrera away for 50 years.

That fact makes this Porsche extremely rare, and primed to make good dough when it comes to auction at Gooding & Co. Visit the auction page now, and if you’re froggy, make a bid.
