Porsche 356 A 1600

Coupé, 1957


  • Wonderful Driver Quality!
  • Under the same owner since 1985
  • Porsche Certificate of Authenticity included!

This 1957 Porsche 356A coupe, acquired by the current owner in 1985, represents a driver quality car with notable features and a history of maintenance. Completed on August 31, 1956, it boasts a vibrant red exterior paired with black and red upholstery. Powered by a replacement 1.6 liter flat four engine mated to a four speed manual transaxle, it offers a classic driving experience. The car comes equipped with oatmeal square weave carpets, 15″ steel wheels, beehive taillights, and a Blaupunkt AM/FM radio. Though the exterior received a repaint in its current shade of red in 2017 and exhibits some imperfections typical of its age, including intermittent turn signal operation, it retains its charming vintage appeal.
