RCH 356

The vehicles are produced by the company RCH. Explore a company that has for years specialized on full-scale replicas of the legendary 356.

Our cars are distinguished by their traditional craftsmanship and the finest materials used for the construction as opposed to other providers.

We built a replica of the legendary 356.

The qualitative results of our work and the reliability of our products are the building blocks upon which our success is based and we consider these claims as non-negotiable.

You should know that our replica vehicles are manufactured in Greece, without the use of auto-fabricated kits from abroad - from scratch to completion.

The fiberglass used in our REPLICA models has an ISO and TUV certification and is fire resistant.

The base chassis of our Replicas has been shortened to VW specifications so that is the same as the original 356 model.

For our models we only use brand new parts.

Available models are the 356, 356 Special Edition, 356 Special Edition Wide body, 550, and we can deliver worldwide.


Our bodies have a "new" engineered additional chassis frame! 24 Screws bond the chassis frame with the body as opposed to 6 screw bondage other manufacturers  provide thus making our cars more stable with no space limitations in the footwall and no water intrusion into the passenger compartment.

There is also a possible 12cm rearward placement of the gear shifter so can you safely and comfortably change gears without the need to bend forward as it is in other alike vehilcles.

We manufacture the seat positions according to your wishes, in the sizes L - XL and XXL.

Newly designed electrical harness with circuit diagram produced by a German company.

12 position fuse boxes are used instead of 7 as in other productions in order that all individual electrical components of the vehicle are well secured.
