1956 Porsche 356 A Coupe
1956 Porsche 356A Coupe, #56120 I will have motor# tomorrow on my website. I believe it is matching numbers. The motor appears to be period correct in all aspects and runs strong, tune-up was performed along with installing a new starter. The car was updated to 12 volt. The transmission that was put in I believe is a later model and was told needs a different nose cone to operate correctly, the shift pattern is off. The body is extremely straight with no rust. I specialize in vintage Volkswagen's and have always had a love for 356 Porsche's ever since my father owned his 1958 speedster. He was also a New Car Dealer in Montebello California Colome Motors Volkswagen for 33 years. He trained me from an early age on what to check for when looking at cars. This was a dry rust free car to strat with. The 356 is unclipped and solid.The tailight's in the back, one of the holes is in the original spot and the other was moved inward. I did not do the work to the car, This is how I purchased the car. It would not be hard to make original if owner preferred. I believe he was attempting to make an outlaw look. I was told that this was a one owner that he was after for years. The seats were all redone in real leather along with the door panels, German Weave carpet was installed, New Headliner, all frames were rechromed.All interioir guages were restored. I bought this car as I was most impressed with the body and the paint work was done well. The car has a scartch on the passanger door, the rest of the car is dent and scratch free. I do not know as much about these cars as I would like. Ask any question's on vintage VW's and I am an open Encyclopedia. I will try to answer any and all questions to the best of my ability. Also the radio, 56 plate and frame do not come with the car they belong to my personal 56 vert VW.
