Matching Numbers* Certificate of Authenticity* Rare Golde Sunroof* Fresh Restoration by World Renowned Porsche Expert*
This 1953 Porsche Pre-A 356 Bent Window Sunroof Coupe is Black with Green leather interior. This is a very rare car and an excellent example of its kind. It retains its original engine and is painted in the original color of Black. What distinguishes this car from similar Pre-A coupes is its rare Golde Sunroof. The car comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche confirming the original color and matching numbers. The car is extremely well detailed, having just received a complete high-level restoration. This included a painstaking engine rebuild by a world renowned Porsche expert. The car has less than 550 miles on it since the engine was rebuilt.
We sold the car to a client almost immediately after we purchased it and just recently got it back. Our client invested another $15,000 carrying out small upgrades and getting the car to his extremely exacting standards. He only put 500 miles on the car. He had a new Alpine radio and iPod adapter professionally installed. It is easily removable without any effect on the car should the new owner not care for it. The car was also fitted with a 6 volt battery tender adapter for ease of use.
Being the first iteration of the 356 series, one of the earliest and most important sports car designs to emerge after World War Two, this car embodies an important moment in automotive history.

From WikipediaThe Porsche 356 was the company's first production automobile. It was a lightweight and nimble-handling rear-engine rear-wheel-drive 2-door sports car available in hardtop coupe and open configurations. Design innovations continued during the years of manufacture, contributing to its motorsports success and popularity. Production started in 1948 at Gmünd, Austria, where approximately 50 cars were built.
