Sold for $434,000 at 2022 Gooding & Company : Pebble Beach.
This Porsche Cabriolet was completed at the factory on January 19t of 1956 as a 'Type European.' It left the factory with sealed beam headlights and instrumentation in miles. It is believed that the car was sold new to a doctor in Palo Alto, California, who then sold it to another Northern California-based enthusiast, who later sold it in 1979 to Ted Lyman of Oakland, California. The current caretaker acquired it from Mr. Lyman in 2014. A complete restoration was soon commissioned and was led by Bruce Baker Enterprises Inc. of Collegeville, Pennsylvania. The car's period-correct type-519 transaxle was rebuilt by Vic Skirmants and Eric Wills of Wills Werks in Alexandria, Virginia rebuilt the car's engine.

Since the work was completed, the car has been used sparingly. It was shown only at the New York invitational concours The Bridge, as well as the Sunday in the Park, the Lime Rock Concours.
