See all the Images for this Car
Built in December 1952, this Pre-A coupe with the early one-piece windscreen with distinctive profile was first registered on 1st January 1953. In 2014 the car was imported into the UK from California and registered on 1st may 2014. Before the car left California the following work was undertaken: a full body restoration and repaint; a full interior re-trim: a full re-chrome of bright work; instaling new lights and fittings; and rebuilding the engine. Take note that the engine in this car is non matching but is 1500 unit from 1955 (34855). Further works are carried out in the UK in 2014 by Porsche specialist Gantspeed engeneering: a full suspension overhaul with all new bushes, bearings and shock absorbers, a complete brake refurbishment with all new hydraulic cylinders and hoses; a comprehensive rebuild of the original transmission with new bearings, synchros and shifting sleeves as required, a full pedal box restorations, a full overhaul of all control systems passing trough the centre tunnel, a steering box rebuild and new steering joints, and fitted with a new battery, tyres and starter motor. Gantspeed has covered circa 500 miles in the car and have dealt with any issue that cropped up. Early Pre-A examples of the Porsche 356 are becoming increasingly difficult to find, especially in such good condition. No Porsche collection is complete without one of the models that started the story. Finished in Azure blue with beige leather interior, this is a truly excellent example ready to enjoy.
