CPR Classic is proud to introduce this pristine 1958 Porsche 356A
T2 Coupe painted in its factory original Auratium Green over a Fawn
The car's first owner had this 356A for a bit over three years,
putting very few miles on it before selling it to its second owner.
The second owner purchased the car in 1962 for $3,100.00 and
lovingly cared for the vehicle for the following 50 years. Included
in the documentation are the original sales contract and a copy of
the check that was used as payment.
A talented private restorer performed a complete sympathetic
restoration on the car with the intention of keeping the car for
himself. However, a business opportunity prompted the owner to part

arrived at CPR.
At that time the car was thoroughly inspected for its quality of
restoration and mechanical correctness. As we had hoped, this 356A
showed exceptional quality and aligned with the quality of work
that we strive for at CPR. At this time, the car was sold to a
private collector in British Colombia who drove the car sparingly
over his nearly two-year-long ownership. He added a mere 300 miles
to the car's overall mileage. The vehicle has recently returned to
our facilities, and we are pleased to confirm that this 356A
retains its outstanding condition. Based on the car's documentation
and history, 54,XXX is believed to be the car's original
We can assure that this car has indeed been finished to a top-notch
standard, and is being sold as a 'CPR Certified Porsche' that comes
with a comprehensive mechanical warranty for its purchaser.
All body panels are numbers-matching. Also, this A maintains its
original battery box and only the flat section of the belly pans
was replaced during the restoration, preserving the exceptional
original longitudinal and rocker panels.
The engine and transmission are the original matching numbers
examples with clear, unmolested stampings. Five correct road wheels
are date-stamped late 1957 and early 1958.
Overall this is a very-well-kept-together example with a clean
history and a very high-quality restoration. It is the perfect car
for someone looking for a refreshing, no-nonsense 356A in a rare
