Known History

The Paterek brother’s second ever restoration in 1977. It has incredible patina and obviously no reproduction parts. As John Paterak summed it up best, “oh man, that’s a great car!!”


Coupe Vin# 50043/engine# 60906 is a numbers matching coupe per the COA and painted it’s original color of Aquamarine Blue Metallic with red interior.


It’s truly a special car with loads of documentation. We have a binder full of pictures of when the Paterek Brothers restored the car back in 1977 (It was their second restoration) and all the receipts from the restoration to the then owner Neil Stackhouse.


Subsequently, everything on the car is original (all the trim, deco strips, etc.) because there were no reproduction parts at the time. The car is stunning in its current condition and has the patina of car that is a non molested original. Also, the paint has held up superbly since 1977 and is a reminder that the body work was completed in a professional manner.


This 56 coupe was completely mechanically serviced by Stoddard in 2003 and was kept in running order by the Huffman Collection. There is just something about this car and the way it sits that conveys the 356 allure.
