1955 Porsche 356

This early bent window 356 was restored several years back my a good client. It was built as a local rally car, not for judging or any PCA event. No attention to early porsche details were a concernThe car was built for enjoyment. For many, this is a good core restoration candidate, that runs and drives.
The car was built Oct 1954 titled 1955. Original color was black. I do not have the COA
The car retains the original floor, but the battery box panel has been replaced. Front hood is not original to the car, but all the other shert metal is, as the owner has told me. The car has its original transmission installed w a rebuilt slightly later engine see photos for engine number.
The car has a pair of red seats, believed to be original that come with the car. No other spares, No tools, no jack
This little 356 cas covered a couple thousand miles since restoration andwas shown at the Quail Lodge event a couple years back.
All this information has been relayed to me from the owner, I can specifically can look at anything, provide better photos and descibe. I am not an early Porsche specialist, i am an early Ferrari manThe car is located at my shop, and I have had it on a lift to take these photos.
Inspections are welcomed and encouragedI can assist in export
