Notes: A lot of contribution from a previous US owner, and an European friend that helped me with the original kardex file. All 5 previous owners of the car are known for me.

This is all I got so far:

59 356A-T2 Carrera GS Reutter cabriolet #151925 delivered April 30, 1959 to
Messrs Hülpert GmbH & Co. Dortmund Germany
first owner was: Mr Heinz-Gerd Jaeger
Dibergstr. 20
D-4630 Bochum

692/2 P*93107*, at 33.415km the car was equipped with an exchange engine no. 805926 at the factory. I have a letter from Porsche Germany saying that.
A new unnumbered engine from an RS60 was installed in the car during the 70s, this engine is now restored to correct specs at Armin Baumann (Europe) with 1600cc and about 140hp.

716 27512, at 33.855km the car was equipped with a new gear box no. 29746 at the factory. I have a letter from Porsche Germany saying that.

ivory (5704A)/red artificial leather interior (K'Leder rot)/oatmeal/beige

As per the actual Certificate of Authenticity I got the following info:

Bucket seats
Tonneau cover
1 Spyder mirror
Side trim moldings
Aluminum front deck lid
Plastic suitcase for rear lid
Corduroy-Linen bag
GT bumpers
GT brakes

The interesting thing they say at the new certificate of authenticity is that the car was delivered equipped with an aluminum hardtop that we know was never produced by Porsche, I believe someone there is misunderstanding it with the aluminum front deck lid.


Plastikkoffer für fond
Verbreiterte Bremsen
1 persenning (tonneau)
1 Spyder-Spiegel
1 Cordleinentasche (corduroy-linen bag)
1 Schalensitz
