The vehicle in detail

The paintwork is in excellent condition, with perfect gaps and panel fit. The brightwork has been re-chromed, new seals have been installed, and new decos have been fitted. Original and date-coded components include the front hood, rear decklid, fuel tank, and chrome seat recliners. The interior has been recently reupholstered with German square weave carpets, red leather, and vinyl, complemented by the VDO instrumentation, a factory VDM steering wheel, and an Alpine AM/FM stereo installed in the glove box. The 4.5” x 15” painted steel wheels are mounted with Sprint Classic Vredestein tires with chrome baby moon hubcaps. The undercarriage and the suspension are in excellent condition and nicely detailed.

According to the previous owner, this 356 was given to Mr. Holliday’s daughter and son-in-law. After several years of ownership, the son-in-law opted to do a comprehensive cosmetic restoration from 2005 to 2007. The restoration involved stripping the body to steel, priming, and painting it to its original color of Light Ivory. Auto’s International completed all the upholstery, while the brightwork was re-chromed by Sihiling. The engine and transmission were rebuilt by European Collectibles. The total cost of the restoration exceeded $60,000.00.

Mechanically powered by the matching 1600cc flat-four engine producing 60 horsepower with a 4-speed manual Type 644 transmission and a hydraulic four-wheel drum braking system. Complete with a Porsche Kardex, spare, jack, tools, and restoration receipts, an excellent opportunity to acquire a numbers-matching 356A T2 Coupe that has been finished to a very high standard.
