1959 Porsche 356A Convertible D with Coachwork by Drauz: One of only 1,330 Produced

This 1959 Porsche 356A Convertible D is just out of long-term ownership and comes with a stack of service receipts and history. It runs and drives great and has been driven and serviced regularly. The engine, transmission, and most of the mechanical components have been rebuilt / restored under previous ownership. The paint is fair for a driver as it has chips, peppering, and other small blemishes throughout. At some point in its life it had a 912 engine installed. 

This Convertible D with Coachwork by Drauz is one of only 1,330 produced making it an extremely rare and desirable car. The original Porsche 356 Speedster has become a legend, but in its day, it was just a bit too bare-bones for some customers. Porsches answer was the 356A Convertible D, D referring to Drauz, the German coachbuilder that produced the new cars bodywork. The new car featured a higher windshield and wind-up door windows for enhanced weather protection, as well as fully upholstered seats, and it was built using the same 356A styling, chassis, and drivetrain as the final Speedsters. Of the three versions of Porsches lightweight open cars equipped with removable chrome-framed windshields, the Convertible D is the rarest. Only 1,330 were built, compared to nearly 4,000 356 and 356A Speedsters and 2,653 356B Roadsters. That makes the Convertible D a prized commodity today. A rare, most attractive, and more practical alternative to the 356 Speedster. A highly collectible Porsche that would be an absolute joy and privilege to own. Don't miss this extremely sought-after Convertible D with a lot of potential and offered at an absolute bargain price.
