This is an authentic 1959 Porsche 356A sports car we have for sale. It's a beautiful car in my favorite color combination of a red exterior and a tan interior. Recent service on this little Porsche include over $3200 in suspension and brake work. The car has new king pins and link pins, new sway bar bushings, machined rear drums, new rear wheel cylinders and emergency brake cables, new ignition switch and much more. Detailed receipts of these repairs are shown in the close-up gallery available through the links below.
As you can see in the photos, the interior of this classic Porsche is in great shape. The paint is at least 7-10 years old and it still shines like new. There was almost $2500 spent in 2005 in paint and undercoating related touch-ups and repairs to keep this car looking its best. There is no bubbling but there are a few cracks in the paint. There has been rust repair performed on the car in the past, and to protect against future corrosion the underside of the car has been treated with rust-proofing and undercoating. The car is very close to 50 years old and there really is no such thing as a perfect car (unless Porsche or Gary Kempton has done the restoration). But this owner has been meticulous about upkeep, and nearly $8000 has been put into this car in the last 3 years to keep it looking and running its best. Details of some of the repairs (scans of receipts) are in the close up gallery. The only items not working on the car are the instrument gauges. They were working last fall but for some reason they all quite working this spring. It's possible something as simple as a fuse is the cause.
The engine case reads P*84240* below the generator stand and further back on the block is stamped 34920 and 1600S. The VIN number of the car itself is 108209. The 1600s engine has fewer than 5,000 miles on it since it was rebuilt.
As you can tell by the exciting test drive video this car REALLY Moves and HANDLES! In my opinion this is one of the greatest sports cars ever made. Be sure to check out the test drive video and both photo galleries so you really are able to appreciate all of the qualities that this Porsche has to offer. Thank you for your interest in this classic 1959 Porsche 356A, and good luck getting this little racer in your garage!
