This lovely Porsche 356A T2 Cabriolet was originally delivered to the USA. After production was finished, the car was directly shipped overseas and handled through dealer Hoffman of New York. Little is known of the first decades of the car’s history. At some point the car was bought by a Mr Dick Warren. On July 11, 1995 the car was acquired by a Robert H Russell from Scottsdale Arizona – after he drove many miles behind Dick Warren on Route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica. Following a renewed Arizona Certificate of Title we noticed the odometer reading on April 1, 2004: 38,924 Miles. By the end of 2004 / beginning of 2005 the engine was completely rebuild by marque specialist Don Jackson in Phoenix Arizona. The engine, carburetors and gearbox were completely rebuild and tuned. This work is completely specified by invoice dated February 14, 2005 and an interesting file of photographs. Also the bodywork of the car has been repainted in its current shade of “Rubinrot” in this period. Mr Russell sold this Porsche 356A in Spring 2012. Following the transfer of ownership document the mileage was 42,482 Miles. Around October 2012 the car was imported into The Netherlands and we added this car to our collection. In the beginning of 2013 we sold this car to a very good friend who became the first and only Dutch registered owner who enjoyed her sparely in the last 4 years. The car is in very good condition. The bodywork is rust- and accident free and has a good panel fit. The paint has a few imperfections due to its age but is very presentable in its current shade of Ruby red. The interior is just perfect and so is the engine. As the original engine has been slightly tuned this car combines best of both worlds: a little more power than the original 60 horsepower but beautiful styling of the early cars.
