1960 Model Year, production completion date 01/10/1959.
First registered 25/11/59. Originally finished in Heron Grey (6007) with Red leatherette.
Matching numbers car comprising:
Originally sold Porsche Car Pacific Inc. San Francisco, California.
Supplied with Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.
This 356 is believed to have been imported into the UK during the 1970’s.
ESV 699 has been the subject of a full restoration by one of the UK’s leading marque specialist Curves Bodywork, Essex. Originally commissioned as a rolling showcase, testament to the company’s restoration capabilities around 10 years ago. Once completed the 356 was a regular at various Porsche shows and meets, showcasing the workmanship of the company and also completed various overseas trips to the likes of Classic Le Mans, Reims Etc.
During the restoration process the body underwent a complete bare metal restoration, revealing a good shell, the only replacement sections required being a front clip and trunk floor, before repainting in base black with clear coat. Photographs documenting the restoration do exist and would be available for any potential purchaser to view.
At the same time the running gear was completely dismantled, cleaned and media blasted, repainted, electroplated and refitted with new hardware and consumables as required.
The excellent condition red leatherette interior was reinstated without requiring attention, believed to be surviving from an earlier restoration in the late 1970’s, however a completely new carpet set was fitted. All rubber seals were also replaced throughout during the restoration, and all chrome work restored or replaced as was required.
Engine was fully stripped and rebuilt with replacement parts as deemed necessary. Full carburettor rebuild and all ancillary items stripped, painted, plated or replaced.
The car is completely standard in original specification aside from the colour change, 12 volt conversion and front disk brake conversion.
Sold to a private enthusiast in 2010 this 356 has covered few miles since, however the owner now wishes to pass custodianship on, hence the car is now offered for sale.
Overall this early T5 presents as a very well restored example of a 356 Porsche and drives equally well, once detailed to sales standard it will surely represent a very firm investment given the ongoing buoyancy of these early Porsche examples.

This is one of my dream cars. An original German machine. I have owned a B Coupe but an 'A' is what I have always wanted.
I cannot wait to have this car built up with better running gear and a hot 48IDA fed engine.
Does someone say Tube framed running 911 suspension... Read the full summary
