6 CTV is one of only 13 RHD 356 Roadsters supplied new in the UK via AFN. The Roadster could be ordered either as a 1600S (75hp) or Super 90 (90hp) and #87952 is the only known UK-supplied Super 90 example.
First registered on 6th August 1960, the car was delivered new to K.N Rudd Ltd, Worthing, Sussex – Ken Rudd was already a well-known AC marque specialist and former Le Mans driver. The car was then supplied to Betty Haig – a well-known female Le Mans driver and founder member of the Porsche Club GB.
In 1971 the car was acquired by professor John Frederick Stein of Magdalen College, Oxford, as listed within its original buff log book still on file and later sold on again in 1974 and 1976.
By 1993 the car was advertised for sale by Parr Garage in need of restoration and was acquired by Mike Bradley (UK). He commissioned 356 specialists Richard Kann in Graz, Austria to carry out a ground-up restoration which is fully documented in the history file. The car benefits further from an engine rebuild here in our workshop during 2008 and have been maintained in storage with us here since 2010.
Finished in Light Ivory with black leather interior and black mohair hood, we are delighted to offer this rare UK RHD Porsche 356B Roadster, serviced and ready for immediate use.
