1957 Porsche 356A 1600 Super Sunroof Coupe Chassis no. 100208 Engine no. 80924 Rare transitional T1-T2 model Complete with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity Concours-quality restoration Only test miles since completion Built on May 3, 1957, this 356A T1 Reutter Coupe sat untouched in a Southern California garage from the 1980s until its recent restoration. Built in the three-month period, from March to May 1957, it is one of the rare transition T1-T2 chassis. These transition cars had both T1 and T2 characteristics. For example, this car retains the T1 chassis' high door striker and lack of exhaust cut-outs, but has the T2's teardrop taillights and shine up light. These unusual production characteristics, along with its desirable color combination, sunroof, 1600S engine, and factory ordered GT fuel tank make it extremely rare, and perhaps.unique. This is a matching-numbers car, with factory stamps on the hood hinge, engine cover, driver and passenger doors, sunroof panel, and transmission. It received a bare-metal, concours-quality restoration at Paras Autos, the Westminster, California shop of renowned 356 expert, and concours judge Louis Paras. Paras rebuilt the engine himself, while the transmission was done by Scott's Independent Porsche. The concours-quality chrome is the work of Victor Miles, and the paint is by Steve Balandis. Painted in the original silver metallic, it has a fantastic green leather interior. It is equipped as originally delivered, with sunroof, a Blaupunkt Bremen dual-band radio, Lemmerz chrome ventilated wheels, side spears, and an electric antenna. It also has the rare and desirable 80-liter Carrera fuel tank. The restoration was completed in 2011. No detail was overlooked in the restoration; the result is virtually flawless. Driven test miles only since completion, it is in exceptional condition. It comes with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and photographs documenting the restoration. Its condition, and the rare and desirable color combination really sets this car apart from any other. -
