1959 Porsche 356A

Story and History

1959 Porsche 356A Convertible D - LHD

A lovely example of this rare 356 drophead

Made immediatley after the famed Speedster it replaced the Convertible D ran for a year or so

Much more usable with wind up windows and a full time convertible hood these little cars are rarer than the Speedster and just as much fun to drive

Still retaining some absolutely delightful design touches - exhaust tail pipes exit from the rear over riders, rear lights mimic the tear drop shape of the car, integral head lights within the front wing line (compare this to that of an XK150 for instance)

This example has spend time in the US before coming back here to Europe where she underwent a comprehensive restoration, in her homeland (should know what they're doing there!!!)

On the road she sits well, drives exceptionally well with good acceleration and secure braking

All doors, bonnet and boot open and close with that nice Germanic thunk and to be fair this exemplifies how this car feels overall - solid and very well put together

An altogether fine example
