#131866 is a rare, UK-supplied, right-hand drive 356C Coupe discovered after nearly 44 years off the road in dry storage. Manufactured in 1964 and supplied new by AFN Ltd. – (Frazer-Nash Cars) prior to being first registered in 1966.
The 356 Registry have confirmed that they believe that this example had been upgraded with a 1600 Super 90 engine by the supplying dealer in period.
Pleasingly, accompanying this lovely coupé is a history file which contains the original drivers manual, Porsche service book, a wealth of invoices for maintenance over the years, old MOT certificates, Tax discs, insurance certificates and, notably, an invoice for an engine rebuild in 1976 just before the car disappeared into long term storage.
Finished in Bali Blue (Baliblau), the overall condition of this ‘barn discovery’ appears good and quite solid but most importantly it retains much of its original equipment. Many components wear a date stamp of 1964 and as such we believe this example offers a superb opportunity as a restoration project or, perhaps, just a sympathetic recommission and use ‘as is’ with a unique patina.
