Cabriolet
Chassis #: 60568
Engine # 33108
Porsche importer Max Hoffman reportedly was selling 11 Porsches a week and about 30-percent of the company's total production in 1954. On June 24th of that year, this Pre-A Cabriolet left the factory to be delivered to Mr. Hoffman. It made its way to Louisiana and was purchased by Alan Surgi in 1974. It was then shipped to Maine, where a restoration began. The work stalled part-way through, until it was purchased in 1984 by its current caretaker. The work resumed in 1990 and took eight years to complete. The current owner drove the car for the first time at the 1998 Porsche Parade in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. It scored 232.8 points out of a possible 235 which was an impressive accomplishment because, at the time, it was about 98-percent finished.

It is finished in the factory 1954 shade of Turkish Red over a Black interior. It has a matching-numbers 1500 engine, and rare details such as the gold Porsche script on the dashboard and glass washer-fluid container. The car rides on correct 16-inch date-stamped wheels and the engine lid retains its proper chassis-number stamping.

Since the restoration, the car has been driven less than 1,500 miles. It was displayed at the 2016 Porsche Parade in Jay Peak, Vermont. It received the Zuffenhausen Award and scored 295.8 out of 300 points.

Over 1,700 examples of the 356 Coupe were produced in 1954, with reportedly just 327 Cabriolet built that year.
