Built on May 3, 1957, this 356A T1 Reutter Coupe sat untouched in a Southern California garage from the 1980s until its recent restoration. A transition T1/T2 chassis, it is one built in a three month period, from March to May 1957. These transition cars had some T2 characteristics. This car retains the T1 high door striker but with the T2 teardrop taillights. These unique production characteristics, along with its rare color combination, sunroof, and 1600S, make it extremely rare, perhaps unique..
