Porsche 356A Very original car, Knickscheibe, factory sunroof (1958)




March 7, 1958, what a day that must have been. Imagine being in a position to order a Porsche 356A. The option lists were of course not as long as they are today, but there were a few possibilities to adapt a Porsche 356 just a little more to your own taste. Such as adding a sliding roof or choosing a certain color.
This example is in exceptionally original condition. This is a Porsche 356A Knickscheibe coupé with the rare sunroof. The body of the car has never been restored and has a beautiful patina. That does not mean that the sheet metal has had to lose quality. The fits are correct and the sheet metal is still as beautifully thin as the day it left the factory. The paint is somewhat weathered, but it contributes to the appearance of the car, although a sprayed paint looks nicer, this appearance cannot be matched with any paint job, so think before you start restoring is the motto here.
The interior exudes an equally beautiful atmosphere. The seats are upholstered in black leather and look beautiful. The leather lives as befits a car like this. In addition, the carpets are in good used condition. There are some traces of use visible but not more than that. The dashboard is spartan and, above all, very targeted. The instruments and controls look beautiful and have a beautiful patina. The sliding roof functions as it should and the seats are still very good.
The engine is the well-known 4-cylinder boxer. In this case a 1600 that delivers 60 hp. The engine is mated to a smooth-shifting four-speed manual transmission. The engine and transmission are perfectly matched and function exactly as they should. The brakes are very well suited to their task and the chassis also contributes to the pleasant and light-footed handling of the 356.
In short, a very characterful Porsche 356 that has been given a beautiful drawing through the ravages of time that is simply not possible due to restoration.
