1961 Porsche 356 Notchback Outlaw by Emory Motorsports. This was Rod’s personal race car for several years. Rod set several track records while driving this car. He told me that it was the most aerodynamic 356 that he has driven and was one of his favorite builds.
It is currently set up as a track/street car with an emphasis on track. It can easily be converted to a more street friendly car if so desired. It is road legal and comes with a California title.
The car was built by Emory in 2004. At the time, it was a no expense spared build. It remains today a competitive Vintage car that is a front runner, reliable and easy to drive.
The engine is a 1620cc Porsche engine built by Ecurie Engineering. It features an NOS case, Scott Billet crankshaft, Carillo Rods, Elgin full race cam, Escure pistons and heads with a 12:1 compression ratio, Solex 40P11 Carbs, 180mm lightened flywheel with Kennedy clutch, a fresh top end with new rings and a competitive valve job. The transaxle is a 741/2 with a GT Limited Slip and close ratio gears. It also is fitted with a dual master cylinder, full roll cage, fire system, Nardi Leather detachable steering wheel, Sparco drivers seat, Schroth Hanns harness, Mahle Gas Burner Lightweight Alloy wheels, Yokohama A048 Tires, Adjustable QA1 Shocks, Z bar, Wright spindles, corner balanced, lightweight windows, aluminum hood and louvered rear decklid.
The build quality is exceptional as are the gaps on the car. It is a typical Emory build with all of Rod’s exceptionally inventive and functional ideas incorporated throughout the car. It surely will not disappoint.
