Known History

This 1955 Porsche Pre-A 356 Factory Sunroof Coupe may be the best in the country. It is a matching numbers California Black Plate car which was delivered new to San Fernando, California. It has been owned by essentially only one California family. The car has 56,000 miles, which the previous owner believes is original. The car comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche that not only documents the matching numbers, but verifies that the car came from the factory with a sunroof. The car was recently fully restored by the owner of a renowned Porsche shop in California. The shop's owner restored the car for his personal use so everything was done to an exacting standard by Porsche experts. The car underwent a thorough cosmetic and mechanical restoration and every detail was attended to. As a result the car looks incredible in its Light Avocado color with a Beige Interior. It has been mechahnically sorted- the engine runs strong and smooth and the car drives beautifully. 1219 '55 Pre-A Coupes were produced. Only a few were equipped from the factory with a sunroof. With significantly less cars still surviving, it is extremely hard to find a Pre-A Sunroof Coupe, even harder to find one restored to this degree of excellence. This car, with its California Black Plates, its expert restoration, and its matching numbers, is a very special example indeed. The car comes with its tool roll and the Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche.
