Our 356 A T1 cabriolet is equipped with the 1600cc engine and bodied by Reutter. The car was delivered new in Paris, France on the 31st of octobre, 1956 to the American Lieutenant Roy Richardson. Later on, it moved to the US with him and in 2009 it returned to its country origin and to the current owner.
The current owner is a great enthusiast of cars of all sorts and uses this one for easy Sunday drives and longer rally's.
It has been restored and painted in solid black. The engine, gearbox and interior are matching as confirmed by its documentation. It only covered a few 1000 km's since its restoration.
It currently has a Belgian registration.
The US over rider bumpers were removed as per the owners request when restoring the car. It has a matching 1956 Michelin guide and a custom tonneau cover. The current being a fan of British classics wanted the possibility to close the car like it was done on a lot roadsters and convertibles. The cover protects the interior and has a custom bar behind the front seats.
EXTERIOR & INTERIOR
The interior is looking beautiful and has no since of use. Paint is bright and has a lovely patina without any blemishes. The car presents and looks magnificent.
ENGINE & MECHANICS
Our testdrive and long maintenance records proved the great reliability; running at the turn of the key. The 60hp engine feels healthy and pulls nicely at every rpm range.
With so many excellent qualities, this 356 cabriolet is great car for any collector or passionate.
