This Porsche 356 A European Coupe by Reutter has the rare 'European' fender script. After receiving pressure from Ford Motor Company lawyers at the close of the 1955 model year, Porsche discontinued the 'Continental' model and instead produced the 'European' for just a few months using up the pre-drilled fenders intended for the 'Continental.'

This particular example has been given a correct, show-quality restoration that was completed in 2016. The body was finished in Fashion Gray with a red leather interior. The engine has been upgraded to a type 616/33-1, 1.7-liter Porsche unit from 1969. It has been rebuilt and fitted with a performance camshaft from Elgin.

In 2016, the car scored 296/300 points in PCA competition.
