THE EARLY 356 "PRE A" PORSCHE CABRIOLET IS ONE OF THE RAREST AND COVETED OF ALL 356 PORSCHES. THIS EARLY 1954 , VIN NUMBER 60653, IS ONE OF 143 BENT WINDSCREEN CABRIOLETS MANUFACTURED IN THEIR SHORTENED 7 MONTH MODEL YEAR. THIS 356 REUTTER CABRIOLET WAS BORN ON SEPTEMBER 8, 1954 AS A RARE 1500 SUPER IN THE ORIGINAL COLOR OF GRAPHITE METALLIC /5403 AND BEIGE LEATHER INTERIOR . IT HAS BEEN LOCATED IN COLORADO THE PAST 12 YEARS IN THE PRIVATE COLLECTION OF A LONG TERM CAR COLLECTOR. DURING THIS TIME THE CAR HAS RECEIVED A TOTAL PROFESSIONAL NUT AND BOLT RESTORATION ON ITS STRAIGHT RUST FREE BODY. THE DETAILED PROFESSIONAL RESTORATION IS OUTSTANDING AND CORRECT INSIDE AND OUT AS IT WAS OVERSEEN BY A NATIONAL PORSCHE JUDGE. THE CAR WAS PAINTED 13 YEARS AGO AND IS STILL SHINY AND IN OUTSTANDING CONDITION. THE UNDERCARRIAGE OF THE CAR IS DETAILED TO SHOW MUSEUM QUALITY. THERE IS A LIGHT UNDERCOATING ON ITS ORIGINAL BODY PANELS AS WHEN IT LEFT THE FACTORY. MOST EVERY ORIGINAL PART HAS BEEN REBUILT OR RESTORED . EVERYTHING APPEARS CORRECT, CLEAN AND TIDY JUST AS IT CAME OUT OF THE FACTORY IN 1954. NO LEAKS ON THE RECENTLY REBUILT ENGINE OR TRANSMISSION AS THEY ALL HAVE NEW SEALS. ALL CHROME HAS BEEN RESTORED. SHOCKS , BRAKES AND SUSPENSION ARE NEW OR REBUILT. THE STEERING WHEEL IS SUPERB AND GAUGES AND DASH HAVE BEEN RESTORED. THE ORIGINAL TELEUNKEN RADIO IN THE CAR IS NOT CURRENTLY WORKING AND THE CAR HAS AN ORIGINAL WINDSHIELD WIPER WASHER. THE WHITEWALL TIRES ARE NEW HOWEVER ARE AN ESTIMATED 26 YEARS OLD AND SHOULD BE REPLACED . THERE IS ALL NEW CORRECT WIRING AND THE ORIGINAL REUTTERS DOOR TAG IS STILL IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. BODY GAPS ON THE CAR ARE EXCELLENT AND THERE IS AND HAS BEEN NO EVIDENCE OF RUST OR ACCIDENTS. THE NEW INTERIOR LEATHER IS THE CORRECT COLOR AND PATTERN AS IT CAME OUT OF THE GERMAN FACTORY IN 1954. IT WAS DONE BY THE LEADING EXPERT SHOP, AUTO WEAVE, IN DENVER COLORADO. THE TOP , HEADLINER AND CARPETING ARE NEW. THE ENGINE IS NOT THE ORIGINAL WHICH IS PRETTY NORMAL GIVEN THE TENDENCY TOWARD ENGINE FAILURE PORSCHE EXPERIENCED IN THESE EARLY CARS. HOWEVER, IT IS A PROPER PERIOD CORRECT 1954 528 ENGINE "S" ENGINE . IT SHOULD BE NOTED THE CURRENT REPLACEMENT ENGINE IS ONLY 23 ENGINE NUMBERS AWAY FROM THE ORIGINAL .
