Finished in original colour combination of Glacier White and Green Leatherette and Corduroy. Glacier white resembles a light green and is a rare and desirable Porsche paint colour. Porsche certificate of authenticity granted in January 2016 .Comprehensively restored over a six period to original delivery specification .Needs nothing other than a new custodian with an enthusiasm for classic Porsche open top motoring .General Description. The Porsche 356 was the first Porsche production car and was introduced as a lightweight, rear-engine, rear-wheel drive, two-door model available both in hardtop coupe and open configurations. The model was refined over its production contributing to its motorsports success and popularity. Production started in 1948 at Gmund, Austria, where Porsche built approximately 50 cars. In 1950 the factory relocated to Zuffenhausen, Germany, and general production of the 356 continued until April 1965, well after the replacement model 911 made its September 1964 debut. Of the 76,000 originally produced, approximately half survive. In model year 1960, the 356 A was replaced by the completely redesigned 356 B T5. The key visual differences between the B series and the A series model included the front bumper with enlarged higher overriders and the headlights, which were also higher. The horn grilles next to the further-protruding front indicators were flatter and featured two chrome-plated slats. The front lid handle was also wider at the bottom. The two lamps for the number plate lighting were integrated in the higher-positioned rear bumper, while the reversing light was mounted below the bumper.
