1959 Porsche 356

Huntington Station, NY Blue · 4 Cylinder · 32,000 miles

1959 PORSCHE 356A 1600 CONVERTIBLE D
--Meissen Blue with Braun interior, Tan German Square Weave carpeting with Black top, believed to be 32,000 miles original miles, Matching numbers, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, 4-speed manual transmission.

In the Summer of 1958, Porsche sent a letter to all its U.S. representatives, stating that the four-year old pure sports Speedster, which had been designed specifically for the Western markets of the United States, had not been well-received elsewhere. A new model was forthcoming for 1959, and it would be manufactured by Karosseriewerke Drauz. This became the Convertible D, introduced as an interim car to the 356 B Roadster, which was introduced in 1960. The Convertible D would carry Speedster-like design cues, but it would now feature amenities such as a wind-up windows, taller windscreen, roomier top, and more sumptuous interior appointments. Just 1,331 Convertible D’s were built between August 1958 and September 1959. The D is more comfortable than a Speedster and far scarcer than the 356 B Roadster, this has resulted in it being considered by many to be the most enjoyable of the three.

This 1959 Porsche 356A 1600 Convertible D was delivered new to Max Hoffman in New York on April 27, 1959 and sold to a Southern California collector, where it remained most of its life. Ownership was then transferred to Tom Sims, of skateboarding notoriety, and he contracted legendary Porsche specialist Victor Miles to carry out a comprehensive restoration.

This Convertible D is superb throughout and features many custom period details, including headlight grilles, painted to match luggage rack, two sets of seats - Tartan Sport Seats installed as well as the originals in OEM leather, two tonneau covers (one partial and one full cockpit), and dual band Blaupunkt radio and bracket. This Convertible D also includes a host of original period literature and brochures, original owner’s manual, original spare tire, jack and tool kit. It is ready for immediate road or concours use.
