1957 Porsche 356A Coupe VIN: 101091 Meissan Blue Full ground up cosmetic and mechanical restoration Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and Kardex Numbers matching engine and transmission Engine pushed out to 1720cc during rebuild 4-speed manual transmission Includes restoration receipts and photographs Multiple show winning car Includes factory hubcaps Introduced as the successor of the first 356 in Autumn of 1955, celebrating Porsches 25th anniversary and 10,000th car ever made, the Porsche 356A was born. More powerful engine choices and a host of different visual design cues was Porsches way of evolving the look of the 356 that would see its production go onto 1965. This Meissan blue 356 would be produced on July 9th, 1957, and was destined for the U.S., originally optioned with sealed beam headlights, the speedometer in miles and with USA bumpers. It would then be shipped from Germany and imported in Hoffman, New York. In 2005, the 356 would be commissioned to have a full ground up concours restoration by its then owner Charlie Presta. The meticulous 2-year restoration would be carried out by Restoration Works of Chico, California. With a large photo album that shows the restoration, the car was installed on a rotisserie and stripped down to just its steel tub, properly refinished, corrected and repainted in its original Meissan Blue color. The interior received all new upholstery and the gauges were rebuilt. The suspension was completely gone through and the engine was entirely rebuilt, pushed out to 1720cc in the process for extra power. The transmission was also gone through and made sure that each of the 4 gears shifted beautifully. Completed in 2007, the car would then go to a number of shows over the next few years, taking home two Best of Show and seven First in Class awards with the stunning 356. Canepa would then acquire the car in 2012. When it arrived at Canepa, the 356 was still in concours condition from adding so few miles since the completion of the restoration. It was then sold to a Northern California owner who took the utmost care in the car. During his 5-year ownership, the car remained in almost undriven condition, adding less than 1,300 miles to the odometer. Upon arriving back at Canepa, the car still looked as though it had just completed its concours restoration. The car was completely serviced and every system was gone through from front to back, making sure that everything was in perfect working condition. It was also subjected to a full Canepa Difference concours detail. This included hand cleaning the entire underside of the car, engine bay, trunk and interior, making it look as clean as when it rolled out of the Porsche factory. The Meissen blue paint was painstakingly polished to make sure that it shined as if it had just completed its restoration. Mechanically ready to take a cross country tour and cosmetically fit to bring home a best of show, this Porsche 356A will please any and all air-cooled Porsche lovers.

History Its hard to believe, but Porsche design and the Germans, in general, were able to reboot and go from thinking about Tiger tanks to sports cars in the span of just three years. In 1948, the first Porsche 356 emerged from a converted sawmill in Gmund, Austria (the Allied occupation forces were the new residents of Porsches Stuttgart, Germany offices). By 1950, a much-improved version of the Porsche 356 built in Zuffenhausen, Germany was being sold in America. Early U.S. importer Max Hoffman was responsible for the most-iconic 356 body style, the Speedster, which was a rather stripped down and basic $2,995 version of the car with racing-style bucket seats, removable side curtains instead of roll-up windows and a low windshield that the weekend racers who favored the model could easily remove.
1957 PORSCHE 356A SUNROOF COUPE --Anthracite Metallic with Red Leather Interior, Tan Square Weave Carpeting, showing 72,835 total miles from new, 1600cc flat four engine, 4-speed manual transmission, Sunroof, Rudge Wheels (original not reproduction), Concours Restored, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. This 356A, #58697 was completed on February 4th, 1957 and shipped to the U.S., sold new by Precision Motor Cars in Beverly Hills, California. Its first owner, Mr. R. Lanthorne, kept meticulous records during his ownership, including the original Porsche Service Booklet, which is duly stamped with several Dealer Service records from 1957 onward. In addition, Mr. Lanthorne kept the original Dealer Order Sheet with options handwritten, and every California State Registration stub from 1957 to 1984, when ownership was transferred to Mr. G. Bartow of Rancho Santa Fe, CA. Mr. Bartow kept likewise California Registration cards and a few service records from 1984 to 1991. 58697 was then sold to well-known collector, Roland Hines, who contracted the car to 356 legend, Don Emory, for a comprehensive restoration. As a result, the body, paintwork, shut lines and stance of the car to this day are all exemplary – as is the interior, detailing and finishes throughout the entire car. In 2005, the car was brokered by Paul Russell & Co. and sold to Mark Allen, of Mass., then a brief ownership change to Mark Reagan of NJ, and finally to its current devoted custodian since 2007. During current ownership, the car has been exhaustively maintained and upgraded by some of the finest names in the 356 world. Rudge wheels exhaustively restored, brakes completely overhauled, interior refreshed and countless details addressed…the car has enjoyed a no expense spared throughout its existence. In 2007, a 100+ hp powerplant project was envisioned in conjunction with 356 specialist, Bruce Baker, who was contracted to build a motor that would emulate that of 356 GS Carrera level performance. The completely balanced and blueprinted 9.5:1 compression ratio engine build included all period hot-rod hallmarks; 86mm forged pistons, magnafluxed and polished crank, balanced 356 C connecting rods, lightened flywheel, Elgin profile camshaft and fully polished Porsche 912 pushrods and valve gear. In addition, ported cylinder heads, lightweight clutch, Zenith 32mm carburetors and a custom oil cooler with a Billet aluminum sump plate and modified oiling system for full flow filtration. During the engine build, there were several areas of additional detailing and improvements made under the expertise of Mr. Baker - the car was converted to 12 volt electrical, a 380mm Moto-Lita wood steering wheel was adapted with a custom billet hub and turn signal canceller, as well as countless adjustments and careful detailing of interior and exterior appointments made while the car was with Baker Enterprises. The original numbers matching complete running engine was properly serviced and prepared for long term storage, palettized and shrink wrapped – the original engine accompanies the sale. In 2008, the car received a complete transaxle rebuild, including all bearings and synchros. This 356 presents and drives to a superb standard today and will be sold with accompanying books, manuals, original restored jack and spare, the original matching numbers engine, along with an impressive binder of receipts and records through various ownerships dating back to 1957. In its most recent ownership, this 356 was treated to a Weber carburetor upgrade and new sport muffler. This 356 runs as good as it looks and has no disappointments in any way. Absolutely superb throughout, this 1957 356A is eligible for countless Rallies and Concours events including the famed Mille Miglia Retrospective - it represents the finest of 356 offerings and is ready for immediate use.
