Ideal Example to Enjoy As-is, Ready for Daily Driving or Vintage Rallies
The 356 model line expanded and evolved throughout the 1950s and quickly gained an enthusiastic following with each subsequent new variant. Mechanical improvements and additional comfort increased drivability. Further changes took place in 1958 with new steering and the now twin carbureted, 1,600 cc engine reverting back to standard bearings and cast-iron cylinders. With their beautifully minimalistic design and carefree drivability, 356A's and Pre-A's have become highly sought after and truely represent the core essence of Porsche.
Offered here is a sporting example of the last production year A Coupe. This complete numbers-matching example was born on January 7, 1959 and handled by Hoffman Motor Car Company, New York. It is equipped with USA bumpers and outside mirror, while the Porsche Kardex and Certificate of Authenticity confirms 106167's original exterior color as Silver Metallic. The current black paint was applied many years ago, although its shows its age, makes for an excellent driver/vintage rally candidate absolutely as-is. Aside from recent seat covers, the Porsche's cabin appears quite original and presentable, including the unique period Grants Transistor radio. Drivability and power is dialed in thanks to an August 2016 engine rebuild by Krieger's Engines, an air-cooled specialist in Novato, California. Invoices for the work performed accompany the 356, along older servicing records, Porsche Kardex and Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. The body #167 appears stamped on the front bonnet hood latch and rear deck lid. Additionally, a matching spare assembly and original jack come fitted.
“A” coupes are becoming scarce and very difficult to source and Pre-A's have sky rocketed in values. They are the essence to the birth of Porsche and will sure continue to increase in popularity. This charming A Coupe offers many possibilities to its next caretaker and is now available for worldwide purchase and delivery from our Houston, Texas showroom.
