1956 356A T1 Coupe - Matching Engine, Original Floors

This 1956 Porsche 356A T1 Reutter Coupe is finished in attractive Dark Blue over a black leatherette interior. It was purchased in 1979, by it’s second California owner, from the first owner who also resided in California. Power is from it’s numbers matching 1600cc flat-four paired with a 4-speed manual type 741 gearbox, and a top end engine rebuild was performed in 2018 after removal from thirteen years of storage. This 356 is offered with a detailed service records file dating from 1979 to 2018, a copy of the original factory Kardex, and a clear title. It is very difficult to find an early 356A T1 Coupe at this level of condition.

Having resided mostly in California, the body shows no serious rust. Floors are original and solid. Nose and tail sections are also original with no clips. The original hood is numbers matching and unkinked. The original beehive tail lights were updated to the teardrop style many years ago, but the original mounting holes for the beehive lights were still present so we have installed a new set of correct beehive lights.

While the original color of this car was never recorded on the factory Kardex, it received an exterior repaint in attractive Dark Blue in the late 1980’s. Since then only a few blemishes have accumulated over the years. Exterior equipment includes both body-colored bumpers with brushed aluminum bumper guards (not currently installed), driver door mounted side mirror, and correct headlights. 15” x 5.5″ chromed steel wheels wear 165-series tires and correct polished moon caps.

The black leatherette upholstery was last refreshed in 2004 with a seat repair and new headliner. Grey square weave carpets, and a correct black rubber floor mat are also installed. The painted dash houses the stock gauges, including a dash clock.

The numbers matching 1600 Normal flat-four was rated at 60 horsepower by the factory and comes paired with 4-speed manual type 741 gearbox, for smooth shifting. Engine case stamping 62015 corresponds to the factory Kardex. The engine received a top end rebuild in 2018 (approximately 20 miles ago), with a copy of the rebuild record in the gallery. Prior to the engine rebuild, a brand new YnZ complete wiring harness was professionally installed at a total cost of $3200.

The most recent service was completed in 2019 and included the following:

*valve adjustment
*oil and filter change
*ignition wires, spark plugs, rotor, points
*brake fluid flush and brake adjustment
*installed new beehive tail lights

A clear title, original owner's manual and a pile of service records spanning 1979 through 2018 are included.
