- 1957 Porsche
356A Coupe T1
- If you have
seen my Wish
I broke my own rule on this purchase. NO PROJECTS.
- It was a numbers
matching car with some rust issues, but basically it was all
there. Bought on ebay after bidding from people in France, England,
Austria, Germany, Netherlands and Australia. Seller had found
it stored about 10 years and bought it for resale. Certificate
of Authenticity shows birth date 09/13/1957. California titled
as 1958, but corrected to 1957 with new title. All numbers match.
Delivered Ivory/Red with Sealed-Beam Headlights and U.S. Bumpers.
- Body / Chassis #
- Rust in rear
of front fenders on both sides, plus weak longitudinal, but floors
and other areas usually hit by rust still intact. Even has original
fiberboard battery cover in good shape. Unbent hood and both
front and rear don't show any evidence of collision damage. Looks
like older repaint of original Ivory with original red interior
in fair shape and except for driver's seat. Most panel and parts
indicate 1957 as time of manufacture. Shine-up license light
and oval taillights were introduced in mid 1957. All insulation
under deck and in engine compartment in amazingly good shape
and appears original. All door, deck and hood close like new.
- Engine P*66927
- Normal engine
in boxes. Appears that a rebuild was started, case and heads
look like work done, but rest of components look original as
taken apart some 10 years ago. Missing some sheet metal including
fan shroud. Solexs and flywheel untouched. Transmission in car
and evidence of VW engine used at some point in its life.
- History of Car
- Car thought
to have been owned for 20 years by one owner prior to seller
I purchased from. Not much else known about history of car. Car
was located in Southern California.
