Porsche 356 Silver Bullet Hot Rod is truly unique

This 1955 Porsche Silver Bullett Hot Rod is based on a 914-6 chassis and has a mid-mounted RS-spec 3.0-liter 911 engine that produces 279 hp (208 kW).

Built in 1992 by Australian Jeff Dutton, the hot rod's body is based on a 1955 356 Continental Coupe but with a longer wheelbase and a chopped roof. It has Weber carburetors and a five-speed 915 gearbox, along with 17-inch disc wheels and 718 RSK-style side vents, driver's side mirror, transmission and engine access covers. The stopping power comes from the 934-sourced ventilated and drilled discs.

Inside it gets green leather bucket seats and a wood-trimmed steering wheel, while the instrumentation comes from VDO, with some of the dials borrowed from a 911. The side windows and windscreen are made from Plexiglas, just like the porthole that provides a nice view of the engine.
