2shores Classic Cars are pleased to offer on behalf of one of our clients this outstanding Porsche 356 A Coupe.
For many years, 2shores is offering selected first grade examples of air-cooled Porsches and other collectible automobiles. This outstanding 356A Coupe is one of those special cars!
1957 356 A Coupe, all numbers matching including rare 1600S 75hp motor!
This car was sold new through Porsche Importer Hoffman in New York to Arizona, where the car stayed until 2003!
In 2003 a German enthusiast and Porsche employee bought the car and has been the sole owner in Germany since.
Upon arrival in Germany the car was treated to a new coat of paint in the original silver metallic and the under carriage was cleaned and sealed. Noteworthy is that the metal was not welded anywhere, thanks to the dry Arizona climate. Brakes, suspension and all wiring was redone. The carpets were replaced with original Porsche materials and the car was fitted with Speedster seats. KpH instruments were installed and zeroed at that time.
In 2006 the engine, transmission and carburetors were fully rebuild and the car has now run about 18k miles on the rebuild!
This is one of the very best 356 A Coupes in a stunning color combination and completely numbers matching! It comes from single ownership in Germany and is sold only due to age of the owner. A dream car!
