As Mike said Kardex will show. If it had Euro heaters that will narrow it down some. And Italian delivery had side marker lights.

It is annoying that PCNA does not provide the original delivery country on COAs. I understand them protecting the privacy of individual owners, but if they're pulling the COA information from the Kardex, then it's just a few keystrokes. My '53 cab Euro delivery COA had the interior color mixed up with the convertible top color, and only after I sent them a copy of the Kardex and the details of color code C501A (from Dr. Johnson's book) would they correct it and add the delivery information. Took a month to get them to re-format their columns and list Nurnberg and Germany on the same line and provide revision 2. This whole ordeal took several emails and phone calls to sort out, but they eventually got it right and gave me what I wanted. It struck me at the time that the biggest hurdle was that the template they copied & pasted or typed into was set up one way and it was a hassle to deviate from that norm. If you don't have the Kardex for your car, I suggest it would be worth a phone call to PCNA in Atlanta and request (push them) to include the original delivery country on your COA.

The presence of the 'second type heater', also referred to as the 'European heater', does not always mean the car was delivered on the continent for an owner living there. It only became mandatory for use in 1963 in Germany, Austria and a couple of the Scandanavian nations and a U.S. delivery 356 could have been ordered with this more effective heater.
