For Sale: 1956 Porsche 356 in Laguna Beach, California

Vehicle Description

This 356 Cabriolet Super is adorned with the very rare and seldom seen golden "European" fender script, affixed to only the earliest 1956 Porsche cars destined for the American market. Porsche ultimately discontinued the "Continental" model after pressure from Ford Motor Company at the end of the 1955 model year, producing the "European" for just a few months (and using up pre-drilled fenders intended for the "Continental," as legend has it).
This well documented car come with the Kardex Porsche warranty information sheet which includes the ignition and door lock number and keys that remain with the car today. Also Karosserie Reutter Certificate of Production which in great detail specifies exactly how this car was built and with what exact equipment.
As of spring of 2020 the European is beginning the restoration process starting with complete disassembly and sandblasting. The car is original and complete with the exception of the door glass, transmission, wheel covers and wheels.
The 356 Cabriolet European Super comes with a clean California title.
At this time we would accept offers to purchase it in its pre-restoration condition for a minimum of $120,000.
