The seller sates a Porsche certificate of authenticity comes with the car, confirming that it is indeed a factory “Super” model. Also provided is the chassis no. 150730, engine no. 82295, gearbox no. 20790, and production number 1382 for your confirmation.

Being that this is a 1600 S model, there’s a 1.6-liter flat-four engine whirring out 75-horsepower. This was one of the hottest versions of the car, emphasizing sporty performance.

Highly polished black really makes this convertible Porsche look sophisticated. It also allows the chromed pieces to really jump out, like the bumpers, door handles, and wheels. Adding even more contrast is the tan cloth top, which is great to have in case the weather doesn’t permit driving topless.

Like the top, the interior features tan leather on the seats, door panels, and dash top. A black dash, white steering wheel, and light tan carpeting make for a nice presentation.  

Just three years after the close of WWII, or in 1948, the first Porsche 356 rolled out of the factory in Austria. It wasn’t until 1950 that the first one arrived in North America, but the lightweight, sporty car caught on quickly with performance enthusiasts.

The Porsche 356 was replaced in 1956 by the 356 A, which introduced a number of improvements and changes. Chief among them was a curved, single-piece windshield 1958 was the first year Porsche used the Type 2 designation for the 356 A.
