Congratulations on the 356.
I love the overriders & early style ash tray...

I noticed your turn signal bases look like the late T2 style. My T2 coupe has the early T1 front turn signals. Out of curiosity what is the VIN? I'd also be curious as to how close your coupe is to the change from beehives to teardrops.

My VIN is 102797

Here's as close a pic I have showing the turn signal bases.

The car came out of Florida. I'm the fourth owner, the car was previously iin a large collection in Oregon for about 15 years and then with the original owner in California.

All matching numbers, 1600 normal engine, runs extremely well (I only got to take it around the block, its not tagged yet, and we have had snow and thus road salt recently...). No rust, floors are in great shape, interior is awesome - just needs cleaned. Paint had a great patina, but there are a lot of stone chips, etc, that I need to consider what to do with, if anything.

Thanks for the compliments folks.
