Known History

Our 356 is a rare A version in its T1 coupe variation, powered by a 1,600cc engine and built with a bodywork by Reutter. Produced in 1956, it has a beautiful dark blue colour combined with a black faux leather interior. According to the American dealer who sold the car to its current French owner, the car was bought in 1979 by its second Californian owner from the first owner who also lived in Calfornia. It therefore spent a large part of its life on a more favourable American soil. Its original 4-cylinder engine is coupled with a 4-speed manual gearbox Type-741 and was restored in 2018 in the United States. The file contains a copy of the invoice. The black leatherette upholstery was last renovated in 2004 and included the repair of the seat and a new headliner trim. Since arriving in France in 2018, it has received a new paint job and also benefited this year from a mechanical upgrade exceeding Ç3,000. This 356A is offered here with a file enabling us to retrace a good part of its history, thanks to invoices and information provided by Kardex. It comes with all these elements as well as its original manuals. This is an interesting car, since it has never been subject to a full restoration but instead, was serviced over the years and partially restored whenever necessary. It has become difficult to find a 356A T1 Coupe in today's market and our example, which has retained its soul over time, is a particularly appealing car.
