This is Your Chance to Own a 1958 Porsche 356 Super Cabriolet

1958 Porsche 356 Super Cabriolet to Highlight Henderson Auctions Collector Motor Series.

A meticulously restored 1958 Porsche 356 Super Cabriolet will be a highlight at the upcoming Henderson Auctions Collector Motor Series on May 18, 2024, at the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum in Birmingham, Alabama. This stunning example of Porsche’s iconic 356 line has undergone a complete bare-metal restoration, with the exterior beautifully refinished in Meissen Blue, shifting from its original black color. The interior retains its excellent condition saddle upholstery, complemented by a new black German canvas top and boot cover.

This collector's dream is equipped with the correct Super engine and transmission (number 81438), ensuring it runs perfectly with show-quality paint that underlines its exquisite bodywork performed in Alabama. In a nod to aesthetics and performance, the restoration included removing the US regulation bumper over riders for a cleaner look with European style uprights, and upgrading to Solex P40/II carburetors for enhanced acceleration. The vehicle stands out with its detailed presentation, including all correct hardware and labels. It also maintains its original 6 Volt system, yet starts effortlessly in both cold and hot conditions, thanks to meticulous care and adjustment. Riding on chrome wheels with flawless Super hubcaps and new Michelin XZX 165SR/15 tires, the car has been slightly lowered for improved handling and a more aggressive stance. All gauges have been restored to look and operate as new, reflecting the over 900 hours of labor invested into this show-quality restoration. For collectors and enthusiasts, this 1958 Porsche 356 Super Cabriolet represents a unique opportunity to own a piece of automotive history, perfectly presented and ready for the road or show.

This vehicle is being sold at the Henderson Auction Collector Motor Series Auction at Barber Motorsports Park. The auction will be held May 18 with a preview Friday, May 17th. Call 800-850-2252 or 225-686-2252.
