$20 Million Porsche to be auctioned

Check out the Pix in the article then read or skim the article.

This car was built before Porsche was a company building cars. It is comprised of parts from many vehicles of the time period.

Keep thinking I've seen that car before. The "Porsche" on the nose is not stock and suspect postwar. Looks like it has been "restored" at least once.

This car was built By Porsche long before Porsche was founded in 1948. When commissioned Ferdinand Porsche was a designer for Mercedes-Daimler and Volkswagen.

It was the precursor to the Porsche brand. Throughout its life it had a lot of parts added/replaced from other makes, one of the pictures shows some of what was replaced and will be sold when the car is sold.

Here is a quote from the article that I read written by Hannah Elliott:
Type 64 may not actually be a Porsche. "It's not says Andy Prill owner of Prill Porsche Classics in England"

The car originally consisted of VW parts, special parts made by Porsche himself and a modified VW chassis. The body was made by German fabricator Reutter.

He built the Type 64 as a commission in 1939 from the National Socialist Motor Corps.

I found the article I read to be quite interesting so I looked for a link about the auction on the internet to share with all of the car enthusiasts on this forum.
