Our 356 is a T1 cabriolet version of an A series, equipped with the 1600cc engine and bodied by Reutter. The car was delivered new in France on 11 September 1956 by Sonauto, the official Porsche distributor for France at that time, and still has its delightfully patinated Sonauto badge. We know that the car had one owner between 1994 and 1998 and was then sold to a gentleman from Vincennes who kept it for nearly 18 years. At the start of 2016, the current owner, a great enthusiast of sports and collectors’ cars, bought this 356 A with a view to carrying out a full restoration. The car was sent to renowned specialists in Italy, where it was completely dismantled, the shell was sandblasted and it was mechanically overhauled. There are numerous photos and invoices of the work carried out in the file. During this restoration, the car was returned to the original livery of silver metallic with green leather interior, an unusual and stunning colour scheme. Also quite rare for a 356, it has kept its original engine, as confirmed by the Porsche description of the vehicle from when it left the factory, available in the file. The car, which has only covered a few hundred kilometres since it was restored, has 19163 km on the odometer. It is running beautifully and looks magnificent. With so many excellent qualities, this 356 cabriolet would hold its own in any collection.
