To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Arizona event, 16 - 17 January 2020.
Estimate:
$125,000 - $160,000


Matching-numbers example finished in rare Aetna Blue over Light Grey
Restored by Bill Hamilton of Martindale, Texas
Documented by Porsche Certificate of Authenticity
Includes owner’s manual, tool kit, jack, and spare wheel

The Porsche on offer is a desirable 1600 Super cabriolet which sports its original color combination of Aetna Blue over a Light Grey leather-and-corduroy interior. While the early history of the car is largely unknown, records indicate the car spent time under the ownership of a Washington, D.C., enthusiast around 2003. Later in 2010 the previous owner reportedly bought the car from a man named Robert Blair, who had inherited it from his father. It was at this time the car was recorded at 77,600 miles, believed to be original. Further on, the car would exchange hands to the current owner in January 2014.

Prior to acquisition, the cabriolet was sent to Porsche 356 expert Bill Hamilton of Martindale, Texas, who commenced an extensive $50,000 body-off rotisserie restoration, which was finalized in November 2013. The previous owner noted that two PCA national judges both photo-documented and supervised the restoration. Additionally, the matching-numbers engine was rebuilt and bored from 82 millimeters to 86 millimeters, and larger pistons were installed. The previous owner states that the displacement was increased to 1,750 millimeters and the horsepower was raised to an estimated 84 horsepower.

According to its Certificate of Authenticity, the car was equipped from new with an exterior mirror, a cabriolet cover, and Michelin tires. Also included are correct date-coded wheels, a fitted top, a tool roll, owner’s manual, jack, and spare wheel.

The Porsche 356 has always been a fan favorite, proving the longevity of the rear-engined Porsche and, most important, offering enthusiasts a wonderful car to drive and enjoy.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/az20.
