Hmmm, I first thought that it was going to be one of the 1961-62 Karmann Porsche 356B "notchback" coupes, either a T5 or a T6, but it isn't is it?

They have quarter lights in the front windows, and the lines at the rear aren't quite right either.

Other than that, I have no idea. :(

And your sister still married him ?

It must have been love.

Lol yea, he also had a volvo 740 thing amd a cool citroen that had the lowering suspension thing when you parked. I loved that car but we could always smell petrol when in it!

You are very close... Definitely on the right track.

Yeah, I spotted THAT straight away.

Is it a Reutter 2+2 version?

Well I'll help you narrow it down further.

1of 5 built.
1960.

If you can't get it I'll still give it to you, you pretty much nailed it.

I think I got it with a bit of googling and edited my answer.

Is it the Reutter 2+2?

Nice car to post, I knew of the Karmann notchback hardtop coupes but I didn't know that any 2+2 versions were built. It's good to learn something new by playing the game.

OK, here is the next one from me. I'm about to head off to work, so will answer any replies when I get home.

The car is the 1960 Beutler-Porsche. Has a very interesting story. http://justacarguy.blo​gspot.com …beutler-coachbuilder.html (external link)

That's good Johandyman as that is the current car to guess; and I think you may have nailed it.

Yes, very interesting, thanks for posting that. It does seem to be the same car I found with Google (here: http://www.thesamba.co​m …um_page.php?pic​_id=766214 (external link) ) but it was incorrectly identified there as being built by Reutter, who did work on the speedsters and regular coupes so it seemed reasonable.

Looks like another winner isn't going to post within the allotted time so in an effort to keep things rolling here's another one to have a go at. Not a full one this time, that sandpiper is a little too good. Radiator Badge cloned out.
