Coupe
Chassis #: 50161
Sold for $88,000 at 2018 Gooding & Co. : Amelia Island.
The Porsche 356 1500 Super Coupe was powered by a 1,488cc Type 528 flat 4-cylidner engine fitted with twin Solex 40 PBIC carburetors and developed 70 horsepower. This particular example has a period-correct replacement engine. It was finished by the factory in Radium Green and was dispatched to the United States where it was purchased in July of 1956 by Alan Kemp of Janesville, Wisconsin. The car is highly original except for the roof which was painted in British Racing Green by a prior owner.

The car remained with Mr. Kemp for eight years before it was parked in anticipation of a rebuild. In the mid-1970s, the owner's son installed a 1,300 cc Volkswagen motor and brake assemblies. It was driven briefly in 1976 before being garaged again until 2017.
