1951 Porsche 356 Pre-A Split Window Cabriolet

One of only 156 Reutter-bodied Cabriolets made in 1951, this very early Pre-A 356 Cabriolet, features a split windscreen and body-to-bumper styling and is finished in the original color Pascha Red (523) with a Tan cloth top, boot cover, and Tan interior. Completed on September 8, 1951, and first delivered to Buenos Aires, Argentina, this Pre-A remained in South America until purchased by a German collector in the 1980s. The 356 has since been restored several times over the years, each time to a very high standard, first in 1990 and again recently. The top end of the engine has been recently rebuilt as well as the braking system. The 356 is well-prepared for top-down touring, rallies, or competition on the Concour events. The body was built by Reutter, a coachbuilder that was purchased by Porsche in 1963. Pascha Red is the original factory color and was offered from 1951 to 1953. Its dark cherry red exterior is complemented by a split windshield, with its prominent central crease, distinctly uncluttered, pure design, Excelsior 5.0/5.25-16 tires, body color steel wheels with chrome hubcaps, and body-to-bumper. The overall condition of the restoration is simply stunning finished ih the original color combination. The cabin is beautifully presented with the original Veigel instruments, a Blaupunkt radio reminiscent of the Art-Deco era, Bakelite switchgear, a Banjo-style steering wheel, a rare bench seat, German square weave carpets, and wooden door caps.
