Porsche - 356 A cabrio by Reuters 1600 Super Hardtop - 1959
Can be picked up in: Spain - with Spanish registration - 12800 mi - 2 - Very good condition, minimal signs of wear and tear

Porsche 356 Super Series A with 1600 cc engine. 75 HP, from year 1959.

The vehicle was originally sold in San Francisco (see original invoice) in the special Auratiumgrün 5712 colour, with Silbermetallic 5706 colour bumpers.

The car is preserved in very original condition. For example, the bumpers have never been repainted. It arrived in Spain in 2007 and the bodywork was restored a year later, changing the original green colour to red and installing a new soft top.

In 2011, a mechanical restoration was done at an official Porsche repair shop (invoices included), and in 2017, all the electrical system was restored by a specialist repair shop (see invoice), according to the original Porsche diagrams.

In 2019, the car had a full maintenance service of brakes, clutch, exhaust and engine by an accredited specialist for a value of over €8,000.

The car is currently in a good preserved condition and runs properly. The engine joyfully moves the car and all components are in working condition.

The outer paintwork is shiny and has no damage and no rust. There is only a minor flaw (a small impact) on the right skirt which is only visible if you bend down.

The car comes with the rare original hard top painted in the same colour as the bodywork. The interior upholstery and the soft top were restored and are in excellent condition.

Some original interior components show signs of wear due to the passage if time (see photos), but they work as they should.

Porsche certificate issued on 22/06/2018. Chassis: 152110. Engine: 710263. Gearbox: 716 301 10100. Valid vehicle inspection (Spanish ITV) until 24/10/2023.

The car is in Madrid, Spain. The car will be on display at Catawiki’s booth at the Retromóvil fair in Madrid, between 29th November and 1st December.

Auction bids do not include transport or exportation, unless otherwise stated.
