1958 Porsche 356 A Super Cabriolet 1,600cc 4-cylinder engine


Description


1,600cc 4-cylinder engine
4-speed manual transmission
Finished in Red with color-matched wheels and bumpers
Bright bumper guards and spinner hubs
Black interior and top
Wood-rimmed steering wheel
Chrome driver's mirror
Blaupunkt pushbutton radio
VDO gauges
Dunlop radial tires
Spare in trunk
Factory Rudge wheels
This was offered as an expensive option on the Porsche 356 and the Mercedes-Benz 300SL. Equipped with the Super engine, this was the highest-output pushrod engine of its generation with 75 HP. The interior features black leather seats, German square weave carpet, the optional VDM wood-rimmed steering wheel and a Blaupunkt pushbutton radio. Finished in period-correct red with a black cabriolet top, the extremely rare Rudge wheels are color-keyed to the body and highlighted with chrome-center knock-offs. The 1958 model year featured the Type 2 series of Porsche. By 1958, some subtle yet significant styling changes had been applied to the 356. The tail lights were now teardrop shaped—as opposed to the predecessor twin-beehive style—and the rear illumination light bar was located underneath rather than above the license plate. Mechanical changes included the twin exhaust pipes exiting through the rear bumper guards—rather than beneath the rear bumper—adding greater ground clearance and a less cluttered rear-end appearance. From a mechanical perspective, the steering box was upgraded to a ZF worm-and-roller unit, and the floor pan was locally reinforced to accommodate seat belts.
