1956 Porsche 356A 1500 GS Carrera Coupe

Same owner for the past forty-three (43) years!

Titled as a 1957-year model

- According to the Porsche Carrera Book by Rolf Springier & Steve Heinrichs, VIN was built as a GS Carrera Coupe with engine number .

- The body was finished by Reutter on March 29, 1956, and the production was finished on May 18, 1956.

- Finished in a beautiful rare color combination of Lago Green Metallic (606) with Light Beige (366) leatherette interior.

- The body has been metal finished and prepped for paint with excellent gaps and panel fit.

- The body, floor pans, and battery box are solid and rust-free.
-As well as matching deck lids, doors, date coded fuel tank, and date-coded fuel sender.

- Original data tag by the fuel tank and door jamb cover plate with the original VIN tag.

- The interior is very complete, and the dash is finished in Lago Green with the original Carrera gauges, knobs, period radio, and clock.

- The Carrera Coupe does not come with its original engine, but ideal for a buyer who has a spare 4-cam engine!

- This can also create another opportunity to build the ultimate 356 Outlaw!

- Complete with Porsche Classic Technical Certificate (CTC), confirming matching transmission (9412), and the Reutter Certificate of Production.

- An extremely rare opportunity to acquire a 1956 356A T1 1500 GS Carrera Coupe project with beehive taillights and European bumpers.


Following the success of the original 356 (now known as the “Pre-A”), the 356A was introduced. It was part of the factory designation “Technical Program 1” (T1), followed by a revision in 1957 that resulted in T2.

Changes to the outside of the 356 were minimal, but a larger 1600cc engine was introduced along with revised suspension and wider tires. A keener eye will notice the addition of a rub strip below the doors and the use of enamel paint in place of lacquer. Interior changes were similarly minor with a flat-face dashboard following the contour of the now curved instead of the bent windscreen. Other options were the provision for a modern radio, courtesy dome lighting, and an optional dash clock.

The 356A was available with a total of five different four-cylinder engines, ranging from the 1300cc unit with 44bhp to the 1500cc Carrera GS with 100bhp. From its inception, the Porsche 356 was engineered and constructed to make the most of its competition pedigree. This is shown in abundance in the road manners and handling. While other manufacturers were using increased capacity engines to gain performance, Porsche concentrated on lightness and engineering balance to achieve this goal out-performing comparative machinery with sometimes twice the horsepower. Any 356A is a desirable car. The car's long-standing appeal has been enhanced over the years by competition success and the growth of the Porsche brand as a whole.
