Footnotes

An original 75 horsepower car, this 1959 model was invoiced on 15th December 1958 to its first owner in Nordrhein, Düsseldorf. The current vendor purchased the Porsche on 28th June 2012 from the previous owner in Geneva, who had bought the car from Michael Liikala of Virginia, USA in the spring of 1987. The original Commonwealth of Virginia title dated 4th May 1987 is available.

Unlike so many, which have had engine swaps, this car is unusual in being a fully matching example: chassis '151470', engine '83057' and gearbox '25214'. The original colour was Glacier White (code 5713) and the interior was trimmed in black leatherette with mouse-coloured velvet cord (maus cordsamt) carpets. Remarkably, this car is exactly like that today, still all matching!

A full restoration was carried out over the last three years. This included a bare-metal ground-upwards restoration of the chassis/body; a complete overhaul of the engine; and a full restoration of the interior. The car was also repainted. The bodywork and interior restorations were done/co-ordinated by Blechschmiede in Baden-Württemberg, Germany, while the repaint was done by Harder Lackierungen in Eglisau, Switzerland. The engine was fully restored by Garage Grütter Classic Service in Lichtensteig, Switzerland; previously, engine work had been done by Porsche Vogt in Zürich, Switzerland. There are detailed invoices on file relating to the car's restoration and servicing over the last 10 years amounting to around CHF100,000.

Having been restored over the past three years, the Porsche is now ready to use; the engine runs smoothly, as does the gearbox, and the car comes with a set of tools (new) and a driver's manual.

Immaculate and worthy of inclusion in any private collection, this exceptional Porsche 356A convertible is offered with Porsche Geburtsurkunde issued on 21st August 2012 stating that it is a matching numbers example. The car also has a FIVA Identity Card and is registered in Switzerland as a 'veteran'.
