4 VERY Nice Porsche 356’s Up For Sale

I ran across an auction site that has 4 VERY nice Porsche 356s coming up for auction soon. I had to share because these are beautiful cars. I grabbed a little bit of the description for each car from the auction site. You can see all 4 cars plus a couple of replicas at Worldwide Auctioneers.

1957 Porsche 356 1600S “Super” Speedster

A numbers-matching example and in the hands of the current professional Porsche specialist vendor since the early part of this decade, the 1957 Porsche 356A 1600S “Super” Speedster offered here was last owned for nearly thirty-five years prior to his purchase by another devoted caretaker in Kentucky. A low-mileage un-restored original example with under 55,000 miles at the beginning of this decade, it was built and finished by Porsche in Ruby Red with a black interior. During the restoration that commenced only a few years ago, the car was comprehensively dismantled, stripped, and carefully refinished in the correct hue of Aquamarine Blue as seen here. Inside, the brilliant red “Autos International”-supplied interior built on original Speedster seats and correct oatmeal colored carpet was done at the same time and is complemented by a matching “Autos International” top, boot, and tonneau covers that are faithful to those originally fitted to the car when new. The dashboard instrumentation was not overlooked either, all of which were sent to the world-renowned North Hollywood Speedometer for comprehensive restoration prior to reinstallation. The car’s brightwork, chrome, and trim were likewise carefully redone or replaced at this time to complement the quality inherent in this example. Even the rare 1957-only bumper over-rider, original to this car per early photographs, was restored and retained.

1963 Porsche 356 Super 90 Cabriolet

Offered complete with a Certificate of Authenticity issued by Porsche AG, this very-fine and freshly-restored 1963 356B Super 90 Cabriolet is without a doubt a superb and thrilling example that benefits from the desirable Super 90 engine. Originally finished in ivory with black leather, during the no-expense-spared restoration carried out in California during the 1990s, the car was comprehensively changed to what is perhaps the most desirable color combination one could hope to find a 356 – lustrous black with a matching top over red leather. The body was stripped top to bottom, inside, out, and underneath to ensure that no trace of original finish remained, then painted and undercoated underneath.

1963 Porsche 356 Carrera 2 Cabriolet

Owned most recently by the specialist expert on Porsche 356s in a major Midwestern metropolis, this beautiful 1963 Porsche 356 Carrera 2 Cabriolet is one of well fewer than 20 thought to have ever been produced. Originally delivered for the European market, the car was snapped up by an astute American collector during the 1980s and restored by the legendary, award-winning Porsche expert Gary Kempton of GK Restoration at some point thereafter. The body was stripped of all parts and media cleaned. Ultimately, it was finished in its correct and authentic Heron Gray over a black leather interior with no detail having been overlooked either inside or out; from the car’s flawless chrome and trim on the outside to its correct German square-weave carpeting, black leather seats, wooden steering wheel, and instrument panel on the inside, there exists little, if anything to fault. It received a new full wiring harness, shocks, and tires, and the original date coded wheels received fresh chrome surfacing. The underside is properly coated as when it left the factory when new.

1964 Porsche 356C Coupe

Purchased by the present owner over two years ago in excellent driver condition, this 1964 356C Coupe was sent to the renowned Bob Smith Coachworks in Gainsville, Texas, for a full cosmetic restoration. Whilst this was in progress any mechanical deficiency was also attended to, and the car is therefore “fresh” and on the button, ready to tour or show as desired. It was recently used on a Texas tour where it performed quite admirably. No problems were encountered and the car remains in excellent tour condition today. The car features many desirable period sought-after accessories: period Marchal driving lights, chrome luggage rack, exhaust extensions, new road wheels and Pirelli tires, new seat belts, etc. to enable comfort and safety while on the open road.
