Porsche 356 Pre-A “Knickscheibe” Cabriolet 1953 LHD
This Porsche 356 Cabriolet is one of the 1.240 examples pre-A typical “Knickscheibe” convertibles built between April 1952 and July 1955 by Reutter.
The “Porsche Zertifikat” confirms the car was sold new on the 24-th of June 1953 to the Porsche dealer Hahn in Stuttgart/Germany and is today still completely correct and matching numbers (except from an exterior body colour change from original Mode Grey to Black).
The well documented history file tells in fact… a long story of love!
All the successive owners in Germany, Japan, Great Britain, Germany and finally Belgium took very well care of this rare pre-A Porsche 356 Cabriolet with well documented restoration reports from 20 years ago in Germany and recently once again in Belgium.
Logic that the file contains photos of:
Porsche exhibitions (amongst which on the Porsche stand at Germany’s most important Essen “Techno Classica” show),
several concours d ’elegance contests during which this Porsche scores regularly prizes,
features in classic car magazines,
participations at prestigious classic car rallies,
After all this care, energy and money invested, one is not surprised that, as the photos clearly show, the presentation is absolutely TOP.
The mirror-like finish of the black body paint matches the sumptuous red leather interior perfectly. Also very attractive are the period Telefunken radio + Hirschmann antenna, the black mohair hood and hood-bag, the correct 3.25x16” wheels with stylish brand new Firestone 5,00-5,25x16 white wall tyres.
A short test-drive will immediately confirm that also the mechanics are in excellent nick. This pre-A Porsche 356 is a great pleasure to drive!
Conclusion: Love is in the air and ready for you to enjoy…
