This 1959 Porsche 356A/1600 Reutter Cabriolet has undergone a just completed concours level restoration with the help of the nation’s top Porsche experts and restorers, resulting in one of the most unique and desirable Porsche 356 Cabriolets in existence. Prior to its uncompromising restoration, this 1959 Porsche 356A/1600 Reutter Cabriolet had been in the care of the same family since 1974. They were excellent stewards of such a wholly unique piece of Porsche motoring history, and can be credited with caring for its absolutely solid and uncorrupted platform; without which this incredible restoration would have not had such original and immaculate beginnings. The result presented here is the culmination of locating the most solid, original, and complete 1959 Porsche 356A/1600 Reutter Cabriolet to be found, and then lavishing it with the expertise, knowledge, and craftsmanship of the best Porsche restorers in the nation. Nothing was left to chance. Every detail was researched, scrutinized, and contemplated by the best minds in the business. It is without question among the most unique and desirable of the marque, and is now ready for its reintroduction to the world to be admired and envied.
This 1959 Porsche 356A/1600 Reutter Cabriolet is finished in an incredibly rare and desirable combination of colors and interior materials, making it possibly the only one of its kind. The numbers matching engine, transmission, wheels, colors, and interior materials are all factory correct and beyond reproach. The care, expense, and time poured into this beautiful machine are unsurpassed.
To obtain the precisely correct hues, the factory Ivory and Ruby Red colors were mixed with help from John Wilhoit of Wilhoit Restorations; the same experts who worked their paint magic on Jerry Seinfeld’s Porsche 908. The upholstery was stitched to factory specifications by Tony Garcia at Autobahn Interiors of San Diego, perfectly duplicating the Red Leatherette with Corduroy Inserts; an almost unheard of combination to be specified in a Reutter Cabriolet. The USA specification overrider bumpers were hand crafted by Bob Chase of Gray Eagle Overrider Bars, the undisputed best in the business, giving the car the that final crowning touch. Every facet of this restoration received unmitigated attention from the finest craftsmen, and most knowledgeable Porsche experts in the nation.
An automobile of such unquestionable provenance in such rare and desirable colors and equipment is rarely offered publicly for purchase; normally changing hands privately between collectors and enthusiasts. This is an opportunity nearly as rare as the automobile seen before you, making this an occasion to be seized upon before this amazing 1959 Porsche 356A/1600 Reutter Cabriolet disappears back into another private collection. Classic Porsches are among the most prized and valuable of all collector cars in the world, and their skyrocketing values have reflected this incredible demand.
