1965 Porsche 356 Cabriolet
Originally imported to Teaneck, NJ in 1965, the car's first owner was Jean A Giebink from Cleveland Heights, Ohio. She was getting her graduate degree in Social Administration at Case Tech and used a government stipend to help buy the Porsche. The car proved too expensive for her, and it moved onto another owner around 1968. In doing our research on this car we were actually fortunate enough to speak with Ms. Giebink and get this story directly from her.
When the Cabriolet first arrived at Canepa in 2008 it was already restored in its beautiful Champagne Yellow paint and black leather interior. While not an original SC car, the Cabriolet has a period correct SC powerplant rebuilt to stock specifications. We put the car through the Canepa Difference process, and it was sold to a collector in the Northwest shortly after.
In the past 8 years, the owner only put on a careful 3,000 miles, while maintaining and storing the vehicle perfectly. Now back at Canepa the Cabriolet has once again passed through our meticulous mechanical and cosmetic inspection, and is ready to show, or put the top down for a spirited summer drive.
