Belongs to Freddy Rabbat
A lot of contribution from a previous US owner, and an European friend that helped me with the original kardex file. All 7 previous owners of the car are known to me.
This is all I got so far:
59 356A-T2 Carrera GS Reutter Cabriolet #151925 delivered April 30, 1959 to:
Messrs Hülpert GmbH & Co. Dortmund Germany,
first owner was: Mr. Heinz-Gerd Jaeger,
D-4630 Bochum - Germany.
692/2 P*93107*, at 33.415km the car was equipped with an exchange engine no. 805926 at the factory. I have a letter from Porsche Germany saying that.
A new unnumbered engine from an RS60 was installed in the car during the 70s, this engine is now restored to correct specs by Armin Baumann (Europe) with 1600cc and about 150hp.
716 27512, at 33.855km the car was equipped with a new gear box no. 29746 at the factory. I have a letter from Porsche Germany saying that.
ivory (5704A)/red artificial leather interior (KLeder rot)/oatmeal/beige.
By 1985 this car was the Parade concour winner with Jim Degnan.
As per the actual Certificate of Authenticity I got the following info:
1 Spyder mirror,
Side trim moldings,
Aluminum front deck lid,
Plastic suitcase for rear lid,
GT brakes with alloy-steel wheels.
The interesting thing they say at the new certificate of authenticity is that the car was delivered equipped with an aluminum hardtop that we know was never produced by Porsche, I believe someone there is misunderstanding it with the correct aluminum front deck lid. The original kardex file accessories are listed bellow:
Plastikkoffer für fond (Suitcase for the rear area),
GT-Stosstangem (GT bumpers trim),
Alu-Deckel (Front aluminum decklid),
Zierleisten (Aluminum side trim),
Verbreiterte Bremsen (60mm GT drums),
1 persenning (tonneau),
1 Spyder-Spiegel (Spyder mirror),
1 Cordleinentasche (corduroy-linen bag),
1 Schalensitz (Speedster Seat).
