Cabriolet
Chassis #: 15040
In March of 1952 Porsche worked in conjunction with Reutter Carosserie-Werke to simplify production of the 356. Changes included the one-piece bent windshield and more significant bumpers tailored to the American market. The 1952 cars also featured ventilated disc wheels and optional trim rings that were fairly common on export models. The 1500 was Porsche's latest engine, which was fitted with 40 PIBC Solex carburetors to produce 55 horsepower at 5000 RPM. This numbers matching cabriolet was the 40th out of a production run of 304 cars. It was one of a handful of cabriolets imported by Max Hoffman and delivered new through North Shore Imports, in Chicago. The car has traversed only 28,000 miles since new and it underwent a two year restoration. The car was owned and maintained by one family until purchased by the current owner in 2006.
