1958 Porsche 356 A 1600 Coupe powered by the 1.6L 4 cylinder engine producing 60 bhp

The 356 is a lightweight and nimble-handling, rear-engine, rear-wheel drive, two-door available both in hardtop coupé and open configurations. Engineering innovations continued during the years of manufacture, contributing to its motorsports success and popularity. Production started in 1948 at Gmünd, Austria, where Porsche built approximately 50 cars. In 1950 the factory relocated to Zuffenhausen, Germany, and general production of the 356 continued until April 1965, well after the replacement model 911 made its September 1964 debut. Of the 76,000 originally produced, approximately half survive.

The vehicle in detail

In late 1955, with numerous small but significant changes, the 356 A was introduced. Its internal factory designation, “Type 1”, gave rise to its nickname “T1” among enthusiasts. In the US, 1,200 early 356s had been badged as the “Continental” and then a further 156 from autumn 1955 to January 1956 as an even rarer T1 “European” variant after which it reverted to its numerical 356 designation. In early 1957 a second revision of the 356 A was produced, known as Type 2 (or T2).

Introducing our lovely 356 A 1600 Coupe. A beautifully restored example finished in the classic silver exterior with red leather interior. She is believed to be a matching numbers car but we are waiting for confirmation by Porsche. Our 356 A started her life back in Pennsylvania in the United States and was brought back to Europe where she underwent a complete restoration. There is not a single nut or bolt that has been left untouched. You can tell that she has been lovingly restored in the past with great attention to detail.

The first time you lay eyes on her, you will be captivated by her shiny metallic silver paint. And the wonderful chrome capped wheels. She will stand out at every car show, that is for sure. Inside you will find an equally well restored interior, with luxurious red leather seats and period correct carpets to complete the look and feel. Her interior is a great place to spend many fun miles with your passenger from going on a Sunday cruise or going out for dinner. Every ride will be a special occasion.

And the best part about our 356? The way she drives of course. She wouldn’t be a true Porsche if she didn’t drive great. She is powered by her wonderful 1.6L air cooled 4 cylinder engine which has plenty of power to keep up with modern traffic. Her (matching) gearbox is a smooth shifting example that adds to the great driving experience.

Our 356 truly is a well restored example that will put a smile on your face every time you turn the key. And when you park her up in the evening, you will have that wonderful exterior to look at. Don’t miss your chance to drive through summer in this unique example. Get in touch to schedule a test drive. But we will warn you that you might fall in love…
