56/’57 356 Bent Sunroof 1600

Originally intended as a “Street Concours rally style 356.”
Delivered to the Port of New York originally.
Original options include:
Side view mirror.
Engine # 63916
Trans# 12571
Original color Pershisch Blau
Interior color Rosanil Natural

Purchased in 2005 from John Willhoit, a well known Long Beach, CA 356 Restoration Expert.
Prior to delivery, numerous Concours Upgrades were completed by John. The work was completed in 2006-2007. The car was entered in the Dana Point Concours and took first place in the Wash and Shine category (2007).

Last year, a full engine rebuild with Valhalla Automotive (John Maloney) in Lafayette was completed. Numbers correct car. Engine Number 63916. The engine was blue printed, with a balanced flywheel and crank. Complete records and invoices with car. The engine was beautifully done with 2,000 miles on it, and is totally broken in.

The car comes with a tool kit, spare interior fire extinguisher, and all receipts for the last (4 years). To complete the rally style, an original Heuer Timing Watch was installed on the dash. It also comes with a spare matching aluminum wheel.

There are a few details that make the car quite special: special wheel studs and lugs, emergency release cables for hood and engine lid. Known mechanical issues are a very slight clutch hitch, difficult to detect. The rear brakes pulse a bit, but very minor and is intermitant. The car handles wonderfully with the 195s and the driving upgrades/wheels completed by Willhoit.
