Early  Porsches

Quite a number of Porsche 356’s show up at the Gooding & Co Auction in Scottsdale . The one that might attract the most attention will probably be the 356 Porsche 356 1600 Super Cabriolet. It is definitely not easy to find a real early Porsche 356. And finding an early Porsche 356 Cabriolet is even harder. This 1953 Porsche 356 Cabriolet resided with the same owner for over 50 years, making the car even more desirable to collectors.  The car had a recent nut-and-bolt restoration that has been completely documented with pictures. Last june, it was awarded 1st in class at the Colorado Concours d’Elegance & Exotic Sports Car Show, Littleton, Colorado.
