In October 1958, this car with today's paint scheme No.: 5704 was brought to New York via the world-renowned Porsche dealer Max Hoffmann, delivered to the east coast of the USA and later to California, where its subsequent journey can no longer be reconstructed. The vehicle only reappeared in the 1970s. It was owned by a doctor who then in turn sold it to an airline pilot.
The 356 was finally discovered and purchased in Hollywood in 1995 by the current owner.
It was then imported by him in 1997 and revised but never completely disassembled and restored.
The engine has been overhauled and revised. The performance increased from 60 to 75 hp. The underbody was then ice blasted and repainted. Since then, the 356 has always been registered in Germany. Last Classic Data report grade 1
