1957 Porsche 356 A coupe type 1!
1957 Porsche 356 A Coupe Type I
This car was purchased new directly from Vasek Polak in Hermosa beach, Ca. This car was a dealer trade from Competition motors for his friend Dean.
The car was painted the Original Silver on the certificate years ago.
The owner is a personal friend.
He was a personal friend of the famous Vasek Polak, Porsche dealer and race car driver. Before Vasek passed away he wrote the owner offering the him the funding for his fiberglass body to his salt flat race car with two 930 Turbo Porsche engines attached to it.
The one owner of this silver Porsche help to produce the Land speed records back in the early 60's at the Bonneville Salt river bed at 400++ MPH.
The owner is now 87 years old. He rides his bike on a daily basis up to 15 miles a day.
We personally drove the car up Highway 1 to Monterrey's Laguna Seca Race.
The owner is the coolest senior I've ever met. He's done a couple slight modifications years ago. His history is as cool as the car. He is a creator. His stewardship to this vehicle sets it from the rest of the pack.
If there are any questions or further details needed please do not hesitate to ask.
Here is some of the original equipment that makes a difference.
The car has it's original engine, the original transfer case which I am including a fresh complete rebuild.
Friend and business associate of Vasek Polak
