Haffay & Co of Hamburg, Germany supplied this 356 on the 13th November 1963. For the first few years the 356 drove around Hamburg, then went to Munich in 1967 and finally to the USA. So this original European supplied car has enjoyed the best of both worlds, born in Germany and brought up in the rust-free US climate! In 2015 the car was exported to the Netherlands. Once it was in the Netherlands the owner commissioned a mechanical rebuild and restoration of the upmost quality. This process took place between 2015 and 2019. The car has now been brought back in minute detail to the same condition as it was in 1963. Every 3 last digits of every single numbered part (i.e. the doors) has been documented, photographed and passed as correct. Even those relating the VDO clock. The month and year of production have been recorded. Naturally this 356 has retained its original, matching numbers, 616/15 1600 C engine and 741/0C 4-speed transmission. The engine, of course, did not escape the expert hands of the Porsche specialists involved. The engine has had passed 100 km of testing and still has the running in oil. Mechanically speaking the engine is in a better state than when it was brand new, it runs and handles to perfection.
The interior trim refurb is in keeping with all of the original specifications. This is a car in prime concourse condition. Every single part used is original Porsche and exactly identical to that of the 1963 edition. No reproduction parts were used at all. The whole of the restoration has been dutifully recorded with more than 400 photos. The original ’Ruby Red’ finish has been kept paired with a black interior trim. It has the rarely seen factory fitted electric sunroof, a Blaupunkt ‘Frankfurt’ radio, twin speakers, aerial, ventilated chrome rims, black ‘Çoco’ floor mats, chrome claxon ring and two seatbelts. The car comes with a Kardex and Porsche certificate confirming all numbers. This is a fully authentic restored Porsche 356 in a factory fresh condition. It is unique and according to us one of the very best currently available!!
