Only 394 of these cares were produced in 1953.This car is identafiable by its front turn signals being located directly below the headlights and its one piece "Bent" windshield.This 356 is made even more rare by its USA 'de lux' edition designation and the optional 1500 super engine that produces 72hp @5000 rpm versus the base engine that produced 44hp.This 356 still has its original engine and matching number body panels. This car does not appear to have been involved in any major accidents. The authenticity of this car was confirmed by the Porsche factory by its "Certificate of authenticity" that will be included in the sale of this car. I will be happy to answer any and all questions pertaining to this car to best of my ability. Please ask your questions before you bid. What you see in the pictures is what you will receive, if you do not see it in the pictures it is missing and will not be included with the car.
