Back in 1992, Jeff Dutton of Australia was building a fantastically hotrodded Porsche 356 ……errr ……914? Whatever it was, it turned out to be one of the cooler looking Porsches that I have laid my eyes upon. From what I understand, Jeff’s family was in the coach building business since the early 1900’s, and this is where Jeff honed his skills that were needed to build the “Silver Bullett”.
The Silver Bullett actually began its life as two cars that were only vaguely related, like 2nd cousins. The first being a Porsche 914, and the second being a rough looking 1955 356 continental coupe. Some purists weren’t too thrilled about the fact that Jeff cut up a rare ’55 356, but who knows, maybe the 356 was 1 step away from turning to dust? (more…)
