Saleroom Addendum

Please note that after further research, this Porsche appears to be a 356 A Convertible D, and not a 356 A Super Convertible D as stated in the published catalogue and as previously advertised. The vehicle is equipped with its original, matching-numbers engine, but it appears to be a standard 1600 engine and not a 1600 Super. The engine's technical specification is therefore 60 BHP at 4,500 RPM, not 75 BHP at 5,500 RPM as previously stated. Please contact a Gooding & Company specialist by emailing specialist@goodingco.com if you require more information regarding this lot.

Please note that a new title has recently been processed and should be available shortly following the auction.
