1959 Porsche 356 A Convertible D

Exterior Paint Color: Meissen Blue
Interior Color and Type: Red Leather
Optional Equipment: Sealed Beam Headlights

Completion Date: October 31, 1958

This attractive Porsche 356 A convertible D was the subject of a comprehensive restoration in 2016. During that time It was refinished in its original color combination of Meissen Blue over a red interior. Shortly after the restoration was completed it was sold to a Porsche collector who titled it in Alaska, but always kept the car in his collection in San Diego, CA. While there, service and repair work was performed by Wayne Baker’s Personalized Autohaus until he retired, then Black Forest Automotive. Receipts on hand detail a very thorough post-purchase inspection was performed by Baker and many minor details were corrected. Later, after some difficulty with shifting, Baker, rebuilt the gearbox with all new syncros, bearings, and a taller fourth gear. He also replaced the clutch, flywheel and axle boots. After Baker’s work only oil changes and basic services have been needed. This is a well-sorted driver that is presented in its very desirable color combination and complete with a matching number engine.
