Most Porsche enthusiasts would scoff at the idea of a classic 356 that had been modified — especially by a Southern California hot rod legend. Dean Jeffries launched his career as a paint specialist, pioneering the use of metal flake and pearlescent paints in the late 50s. Jeffries bought this 1956 356A Carrera GS from its original owner and set about customizing the car to his liking. A stretched nose, frenched headlights, and handmade taillights were fabricated by Jeffries, who then sold the car on in the early 60s. While not a purist original, this 356 has a unique history of being a German car in the early hot rodding SoCal scene, giving it a lineage few vintage Porsches could boast.
