Gregor Magnusson: 1954 Porsche 356 Coupe

1954 Porsche 356 Coupe
Car No. #60
Owner: Gregor Magnusson

#29 in this series of cars in the Del Monte Trophy Racing Group

This Porsche 356 car was prepared by Glöckler in Frankfurt and participated in club events in and around Germany. Under the name Glöckler-Porsche , initially also “Glöckler-Eigenbau”, the Frankfurt automobile dealer Walter Glöckler manufactured in the early post-war period several sports cars, which were largely based on technical components of Volkswagen or Porsche . For example, the Glöckler Porsche 1500 Super from 1953 is considered the immediate predecessor of the Porsche 550 .

Club racing in Germany continued until it was imported to New York in the late 1950s. There it continued to be raced and rallied up and down the East Coast, eventually finding its way to California and historic racing.
