Porsche 356 Concours Engine Program

concours winning 356 engine

Overview:
Concours Engine Preparation involves more than just “cleaning.” You can expect your engine to be rebuilt to the original or custom specification as desired, with new parts as available and conforming to Technical Specifications from the Porsche 356 manuals.

In addition to this mechanical work, the engine will be cosmetically restored as closely to original appearance as possible, sheet metal will be painted or powder coated in original colors, fasteners plated in either nickel or zinc as appropriate, cast surfaces cleaned or soda blasted and electrical items replaced or restored to original appearance.

While it is impossible to perfectly replicate a factory new part, perfect and near perfect past scores on engine preparation at the national level speak to our success in proper restoration techniques. There is no warranty expressed or implied for parts or workmanship in the Concours engine program.

Timing:
Timing may vary depending on the scope of the project, missing or damaged parts and availability of items needed to complete the engine; but you can expect an approximate time-frame of 6-9 months from initial disassembly to completion.

Cost:
The cost to rebuild and cosmetically restore a 356 engine, including assembly of internal components, machining and measuring of crankshaft, connecting rods, piston/cylinders and cylinder heads, rebuilding of distributor and carburetors, re-plating of fasteners, repainting sheet metal and exhaust components and run-in and setting engine adjustments is $12,495 less parts. 50% of this fee is requested on delivery of the engine and 50% on completion. All parts required will be invoiced separately on an as-needed basis with authorization from the engine owner.
