1958 Porsche 356A Coupe by Tuthill


This 1958 Porsche 356A coupe was refurbished and modified by Tuthill Porsche in the UK. The car is finished in silver over red upholstery and is powered by a replacement 1.6L flat-four paired with a four-speed manual transaxle. Modifications include adjustable suspension, 15″ alloy wheels, four-wheel disc brakes, a sports exhaust system, earlier-style taillights, an external fuel filler, a louvered decklid, bucket seats, and a roll hoop. This modified 356A was featured in a 2021 Omaze charity fundraising sweepstakes, although the winner chose a cash alternative instead of the car. 

Finished from the factory in Ivory (5704), the car was repainted silver in 2021. Exterior details include body-color bumpers, leather hood and deck lid straps, a central fuel filler, a fender-mounted sport mirror, a louvered decklid, beehive-style taillights, and a sports exhaust system with dual outlets.

Polished 15″ Group 4 alloy wheels wear 205/55 Continental EcoContact 6 tires. The car has been lowered, and equipment includes adjustable AVO dampers and four-wheel disc brakes.

The cabin features Speedster-style front bucket seats upholstered in red leather with corduroy inserts, which are complimented by a color-coordinated dash pad, rear bench, and door panels. Additional equipment includes a roll bar, body-color trim, and gray peppered carpets.

A black leather-wrapped MOMO Prototipo steering wheel frames a central VDO tachometer, a 120-mph speedometer, and gauges for oil temperature and fuel level. The five-digit odometer displays 99k miles.

The replacement 1.6-liter flat-four is said to have been sourced from a 912 and was overhauled and modified by Tuthill Porsche in 2021. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transaxle.

The Porsche certificate of authenticity shows factory colors, engine and transmission numbers, and a build date of February 12, 1958.
