1959 Beautiful Australian del., numbers matching Porsche 356 A SOLD

Karmin Red | Coupé | 4 Speed Manual | 1600 cc flat 4 cylinder | 106,313 miles showing | AU$239,995



By the early 1950s the very first Porsche, the Type 356 had earned enormous fame the world over for its artful aerodynamics, nimble handling, punchy acceleration and excellent build quality.

A class win at Le Mans in 1951 launched the Type 356 into the stratosphere and production would span another 13 years before eventually giving rise to the vaunted 911.

Today the Porsche 356 is one of the all-time great sports cars, perfectly pure in its lightweight, no frills approach and as with any good sports classic, demand is high and availability is low, especially for the earliest and most desirable of the four 356 models.

The car offered is an incredibly hard to find numbers matching and Australian delivered Porsche 356 Type A 1600 Super Coupé.

Offering 75 horsepower over the standard 44hp 1300 A, this range topping and very original car was the subject of restoration in the mid 1980’s and still presents well today after 20 years of long-term ownership and detailed maintenance.

Originally Auratium Green over Tan trim this rare car now presents in Karmin Red over Black leatherette with contrast Red dash and Black carpets and still features important original options like the California Bars, Chrome Crested hub-caps and Green top-tint windscreen.

With meticulous attention to detail paid to the restoration this car has survived exceptionally well. From the correct VDO instrumentation, to the depth of finish of within the enamel twin-ring steering wheel, panel fit and finish and of course the responsive drive this is one of the most tractable 356’s we’ve ever seen.

Full of character this turn-key 1600 Super A presents the opportunity to drive and enjoy one of the most pure sports cars ever made now with an eye to renovate back to its original and iconic colors adding value in the future.

An incredibly unique opportunity to own a rare Australian delivered and internationally desirable 356 A 1600 Super Coupe, arguably among the most enjoyable to drive in the country this sports classic isn’t just a mantel piece, it’s the reason you get out of bed early on a weekend to escape mundane.
