This period seems actually good for finding many 356 cabrio which have been stored for a long time just like this one, parked in 1973 and never been used since.
As often happened, this is a car (chassis #160767, engine #732290, transmission #80335) bought in 1965 by the american owner while serving the army in Germany, he probably bought it as a gift to himself before leaving Europe and coming back to his homeland. The good of this car is that it seems as original as when it left Germany (except for the paint).
Owner’s manual, original jack and some tools are still with the car, along with the original purchase receipt. Some parts are not installed but are still there like the soft top frame and bumpers, the gaps are said to be almost perfect but there are some rust spots around.
