Seductive in Silver – 1958 Porsche 356A Cabriolet

Porsche introduced the 356A at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1955, and in typical Porsche fashion it sported subtle but significant improvements over its predecessor, the most significant being the new 1,582 cc motor. With the A, Porsche saw a big increase in production, and over 20,000 examples were sold before it was replaced by the further improved 356B in late 1959. Like almost anything by Porsche, these cars are highly prized and usually pampered. This Cabriolet out of Miami Beach is a great example, as it had been in the same family from 1975 until very recently and wears an older restoration quite well. It has new brakes, a new clutch and rebuilt original carbs, while added goodies include a black factory hardtop, the original soft top and the original Blaupunkt radio. Offered at no reserve, this is a beautiful car finished in the fitting Silver Metallic over a red interior, and one that will hopefully make another family happy for several more decades.
