1600 CC S motor with 90 hp and equipment package with Blaupunkt radio, head rests and outdoor temperature gauge.
This specimen is actually one of my first 356 models, which I bought for my collection, and again it was found by coincidence. While reading the newspaper, I found out that a Dane living south of Los Angeles, decided to move back to Denmark. He wanted to bring this beautiful car, he had bought from new in 1960 in CA, in order to give some extra joy to his retirement. However, a few years after putting the car on Danish licence plates, the man suffered from an eye disease which meant he could no longer maintain his driver’s licence. I sent him a letter saying that if he ever decided to sell the car, I would like to be the proud new owner. Nothing happened! However, after a bit more than one year, I finally got a letter telling me that he found that it was time to sell. I was interested in building up a car collection and he was willing to talk to me. I travelled to Copenhagen to meet him, had a test drive and the Roadster changed owner.
This vehicle is supplied with the much sort after 1600 CC Super engine with 90 hp, and it is in actna blue colour (6003) with a beige leather interior and matching carpets. The soft top is in blue to match the colour of the car.
As an extra equipment is has an outdoor temperature gauge installed in the dash with Blaupunkt Frankfurt radio.
I have driven quite a few km in this vehicle since the time I bought it, and I have equipped it with convenient attachable head rests. This was an original option from Porsche when the car was new.
