Cassia in a Convertible (1959 Porsche 356 "D")
Cassia drives one of the most desirable of the Porsche 356 series. The
Convertible D is essentially a roll-up window Speedster. It retains the
bolt on windshield aspect of the Speedster while adopting a proper fold
down top & reclining, much more accommodating & comfortable seats. This
example was beautifully & comprehensively repainted in its original Ruby
Red 25 years ago & has held up remarkably well. Great day for a drive,
Porsche 356 Speedster Cut In Half Restoration by Albert Segatore
This 1957 Porsche Speedster was cut in half over 25 years ago by a previous
owner we assume for storage purposes. I restored all the metal on the car
including the floors, rocker panels, tunnel, torsion tubes, door panels,
trunk and engine lids. This car had virtually no rust and made a nice

1964 Porsche 356 C Coupe " SOLD " Drage's International Classic Sales 206-533-9600
1964 PORSCHE 356 C COUPE. # 128476. 3 owner Porsche. Another great
feature, I could not find any rust. This was a California car most of it's
life. I was amazed how smooth everything worked when I drove it for the
first time. I'm not sure at this point if it's original paint or not? I
was told that it is an original Ruby red car that has had minor touchup
paint, and also that this is a rare accident free and rust free vehicle. My
body guy said the fit was great and he felt that it had never been hit. We
installed the original steering wheel and seat belts. We had the original
seats rebuilt and reupholstered and installed. This makes the Porsche look
a lot better and it's all stock now. The only bad thing we could find in
the body was the bottom of the battery box has been replaced, I'm sure from
battery acid and not rust. This Porsche was originally equipped with a 1600
cc four-cylinder split case 85 hp engine with 8.5:1 compression pistons,
dual Solex carbs, 6 volt electrical system and four-wheel disc brakes.
The engine has been completely rebuilt by a master Porsche engine
rebuilder. Now it has 1750 cc cylinder heads and 9.1:1 Pistons, modified
cam with dual Weber carbs. The case #s do not match. Koni shock absorbers.
Joe at Old School Garage did the service and safety check on this Porsche.
Joe knows these cars very well and has done an excellent job making sure
that everything is in very good order. If you have any questions I'm sure
Joe would be happy to answer them for you. What a great find. I have been
having a great time driving the 356. It would be very easy to keep this
Porsche. It may not be nice enough for a purest but you might not find one
as nice. In the photos note the California registration from 1978. I would
tell you to come and inspect it for yourself.
