In February 1990 the car was turned over to David Loop European for a full engine overhaul. Mileage at the time was 30,746. After the rebuild the car was driven a few months then put into storage in 1991 in Carmel Valley, CA and has not been used until now.
Original color Slate Grey ( code 6401) over Black.
The car has been repainted over 30 years ago. The paint in presentable with a vintage nostalgic feel. Clearly driver level paint which could be enjoyed in its current condition or repainted.
Original floors, with some rust in the right front wheel well and in the front (original) battery box. Nice gaps all around the car. Doors shut effortlessly. Front hood has the typical kink front attempting to close improperly.
All etched glass is correct and original to the car with exception of the windshield which has been replaced at some point. The front luggage compartment is equipped with luggage liner, jack, (date coded) spare tire assembly and leather strap.
Inside, the cabin features original gauges, Blupunkt radio, and appointments. The incorrect carpet (pile) is really the only incorrect aspect to the largely unrestored interior. Nicely worn seats, correct speaker grills, original dash and a nice headliner complete the interior of the car.
The engine bay is very original and correct. Correct air cleaners and decals.
Mechanically excellent. Less than 700 miles on a full rebuild done by Loop European. In addition to that a full service was just completed (3/2018) when the car came out of storage.
All work performed by David Loop, this included:
- A leakdown test performed w/ 4% on all cylinders. Valve adjustment and lube. Only Swepco products used.
- Replaced brake master cylinder, front and rear rotors and pads. Brake calipers overhauled
- New Fuel tank, new lines and sending unit.
- Disassemble and clean Carburetors and fuel pump.
- R and R engine and re- seal. Free up clutch disc.
Additionally, 5 new Michelin XZX tires were mounted on the unrestored date coded chrome wheels. (not pictured)
Driver's manual, jack, spare assembly, documentation from rebuild, and recent service documentation will be presented to the new owner.
A desirable matching numbers disc brake coupe offers a nice opportunity to its next owner to have an investment grade 356 that is fully sorted and can be used and enjoyed without devaluing the car.A wonderful addition to your collection.
