Frank, you're right, it was called a notchback, but this is the one I was talking about, which seems more like a proper re-body than just welding the roof:

It has a more squared-off front and rear than the factory notchback.

this is what I was thinking of. They're both factory notchbacks which was just a cabriolet with a hard top welded on.

Yeap, I Googled it and that's what came up. The red one I posted (the one that looks like a Jag from the rear) was what I was looking for.

you know the stock 356 is a "coach built car" right? lol There were a few companies that rebodied them. The more I look, the more I think that the white car was the one I saw.

Well I suppose, but I meant something more in the lines of a one-off. That's what comes to my mind when I think of something being coachbuilt.

It was only when she was told to lift up the accelerator and push on the brake did the car suddenly come to a stop.
