The brainchild of Ferdinand “Ferry” Porsche, the Porsche 356 remains today as one of the most iconic cars in the world. The 356 was a four-cylinder, air-cooled, rear-engine, rear-wheel drive car utilising unitised pan and body construction.
Out of the 76,000 different variants produced between 1948 – 1965 (well after the introduction of the 911) very few remain on the road and this 356a coupe is an extremely rare build.
Optioned from the factory with a sunroof and bench seats, this matching number Porsche is a gem and has undergone a full nut and bolt restoration making it better than the day it left the factory!

BODYWORK & INTERIOR
Although 11 years old the paintwork on this beautiful Ferrari California still shines well with very minimal stone chips, if any at all. The paintwork appears to be all original and there are no noticeable dents or scratches anywhere indicating this is a looked after example.
The Crema interior is as clean as the outside and against that Azurro blue paint brings a huge smile on your face,
Under the ownership of the most recent owner this particular California has benefited from an upgraded sound system, which the specs are as follows:
Audision Voce 6.5 speakers
JL Audio 5 channel amp
JL Audio 10” subwoofer
One of the nicest features on this car is the F1 style steering wheel, with the paddle shifters and acceleration lights on the steering wheel – it truly is a work of fine Italian craftsmanship and makes you feel like you are in an F1 car.
All 4 wheels of this California could do with a refurb, however even in their current state they show up well and do not take anything away from this car.
The Ferrari California strikes a fine balance of being a Grand Tourer and yet a stylish sports car that has the added benefit of having back seats to put the kids in, your pet dog, golf clubs or perhaps the wife’s shopping bags.
Whatever the use, this car is impressive and this example presents a great opportunity to become part of the Ferrari owners club.
