Anybody with a '57 T 1 356A coupe/cabriolet/Speedster have one without a towing hook or an early 1957 (calendar year) that has one? Flat floor cars should not have one, but might have drains! I don't need photos, just chassis numbers.

Didn't think any T-1s had the hook.

I’m under the same impression. My great big data point of one car (my 57 - VIN 10164Three) which is reported to have been 50 numbers away from the T1 cut off had one center rib on the battery box floor and no signs of a tow hook. A friend of mine, restored a 57 only a few VIN #’s away from mine and also no tow hook.

Never say never with Porsche, but I think tow hooks were a T2 introduced standard feature. I would love if others had other data points to prove or dispel our thinking.
