1955 Porsche 356 V Sunroof Coupe

posted in: Online Around the Net | 1

“Extremely rare 1955 V sunroof coupe with a bench seat and 4 16 inch wheels. The original engine is with the car and is apart. I would say it’s a complete long block. I do have a set of the correct 1955 only heater flapper boxes(they are rust free but need restoration). As you can see, the dash is pretty much complete. The floors and underneath in general is in excellent condition. The car was delivered new to Germany(I do have the Kardex), and was under restoration when I purchased the car. I had originally planned to restore it, but other projects have taken a priority. The car has the correct tach(on Supers the green line starts at 3,000 rpm). The door (chrome) frames come with the car, but are not installed. If I were to restore this car, I would take it down to bare metal and properly metal finish the car. As you can see, the nose has some filler material. In addition, I have a correct steering column and steering wheel to be included.

Things missing that I can think of:
bee hive turn signals- front and rear
the shine down license light
1 16 inch spare wheel

The car is chassis number 54172, was delivered new to Italy on September 19, 1955 and has engine 50121, it’s original per the Kardex.” 

Who thought red was good on this car?  Probably the guy that sold it cheap to this guy.  This is going to fetch a bundle which will be fun to watch.

On eBay in Hickory, North Carolina where you can buy the chair to pass out in after the auction cause you‘re going to be exhausted from six sleepless nights.

    I just saw your Ad and was wondering if you maybe still have the Porsche or probably just the 16 inch wheels?
