The conversion, which is of very high quality, was executed by Don Boeke of Egyptian Custom Body in Dayton, Ohio despite the Reutter badging on its body. The late owner of Taj Ma Garaj collection, John Dixon, was in charge of commissioning this car for the wedding of his daughter.

The custom-made Porsche 356 Limousine is a true definition of art, style and luxury

The Porsche 365 Limousine is based on the concept of 356 Pre-A Coupe, which was initially in a very bad condition as the floors were rotten completely but the body panels of the exterior were still in a good state. This makes it a perfect candidate for conversion.

A number of auto shops worked together to make this happen

Cutting and painting, which are body-related works, were carried out by the Egyptian Custom Body while the interior design was outsourced to different shops. Additionally, the air-cooled flat-four from 912 was used to replace the original engine, hereby offering the limousine more power to handle the extra weight. The converted Porsche 356 Limousine also had air suspension installed.
