The Porsche Certificate of Authenticity confirms that this 356 left the factory on January 4, 1956 in these colors and the engine and transmission are original to the car.  The POA also confirms that the car was a USA market 356 “European” model and had that script affixed to the body and delivered with odometer in miles and sealed beams, which was standard issue for US market cars.  #55353 also comes with the Karosserie Reutter certificate, confirming all build details when new and as it sits today.  These were very rare US only cars that are said to only number 156 in total and only a handful survive today (one source says 12).  #55353 was just restored by Liberty Motorsports of Costa Mesa, CA, noted for their attention to detail and correct restorations.  The car is fresh and ready for rallies, shows or just getting a coffee.  It has not been on the show circuit and quite unknown in Porsche circles.  It comes with jack, tool roll, books.  The car has period correct driving lamps with correct switch and the “leatherette” has been redone in leather.  This 356 European will set you apart in the world of 356’s.

Copley Motorcars was established by Stu Carpenter in 1995. Working for other luxury and sportscar dealers in Boston since 1986, Stu has gained a longterm-experience in offering exceptional products at a fair price making the acquisition of a classic and luxury car as easy and as enjoyable as possible. The team at Copley Motorcars has a particular affinity for vintage Mercedes Benz, Ferrari and Land Rover Defender but also other blue chips such as 289 Cobra, BMW Z8 and Porsche 959. Since the market for these cars is a worldwide one, Copley Motorcars ships worldwide and can easily assist with the logistical arrangements. December 2019 marked Copley’s 24th year of buying and selling sports and classics. Their showroom is located in the center of Needham, about 15 miles west of the City of Boston. Copley has an interesting, some would say eclectic, mix of classic cars always on offer and find something to love about each and every one. And because Copley Motorcars is a smallish “boutique” type dealer, their classic cars don’t necessarily run out the door. A new arrival could be there for a day, a week or even six months. That said, all of their classics are different one to the next and are being looked at throughout the USA and the world. If you see a car you like and want to buy it, please contact copleycars@gmail.com. If you see a car and want to think about it, terrific too. But please, please, please assume that someone else is looking at the very same classic you are interested in so, if it gets sold, they do their very best to find another for you.
