1959 Porsche 356 Carrera GS 4-cam Cabrio

Renato posted this 1959 356 Carrera GS Cabrio. He says it is the only 4-Cam in Brazil.

The owner contemplated sending the engine to Europe for Armin Baumann, a Swiss mechanic who takes care of 4-cam engines, to have the valves adjusted and the carbs tuned. A task that needs to be done every 10,000 km. The original idea to send the engine to Armin in Europe was soon discarded and the best solution was to invite the mechanic for a visit of one week to São Paulo, Brazil. Armin discovered that one of the cams was a little out of time and a valve was almost touching a piston. After two days of work the car was back on the road and running stronger than ever.
