1958 Porsche Salesman's Binder

for 356-A Coupes, Cabriolets, Hardtops and Convertible D's!

                                                                                                                                                       Charlie White




This maroon 4-ring binder containes descriptions, photographs and lots of technical data for Porsche's new 1958 model line of cars including Coupes, Cabriolets, Hardtops, and Convertible D's. Engine options included the 1600, the 1600 Super, and two 1500 Carrera 4-cam engines, the Carrera de Luxe and the Carrera Gran Turismo (GT). This binder was used to show potential buyers the various Porsche models available and to provide detailed technical information about them. These old Saleman's Binders are rare and very difficult to find. The one shown in this presentation had some water damage at some point and some of the pictures show the water damage. Efforts have been made to clean up these images as much as possible to their original appearance. Also portions of some the pages in this binder have been enlarget do show detail that is readible.
