Kardex shows 53728 to have been delivered new to Madrid through VW Espanola, Spain.
5401B schwarz with Kunstl weinr interior (can someone enlighten me as to what colour that is?).

The car ended up in USA with several references on the 356 registry, including that it had California reg at some point.
It was imported to Australia in 2011 from Arizona, at that time owned by Tonja Roy Rogers of Miami, Arizona.

It had been parked up in Australia since then as a non driver with non matching engine and box that came with the car.
Long term i will restore, but in the mean time get her back on the road as a survivor.

Any help locating the original engine 35141 would be greatly appreciated; and if anyone can shed any light at to past owners/ photos or history of the car, I would love to learn more.

John, 'schwarz' is black and 'Kunstl weinr' is short for Kunstleder Weinrot, essentially custom leather in Wine Red. Looks like a cool car!

kunstl. (Kunstleder) is vinyl. weinrot is a ruby red. very nice color and incredibly great find! I'll ask around here in AZ if someone remembers the car. Personally I don't believe I've seen it at any event. Miami AZ is a hole in the wall. Crazy there was a 55 driving around there.
