No, it’s not that only four 356 A Convertible Ds were built, but the seller claims, only four were equipped by the factory with a Rudge wheels set.
Wheels that you do not see in this picture as they will probably have been sold by the previous owner, and this does not surprise us: a complete set of Rudge wheels in excellent condition (original, not a replica) costs as much as a brand new Ford Fiesta ST. The seller says, however, that he has recovered another set of these wheels that comes with the car.
The rest of the car suffered damage because it was covered for decades with a plastic sheet that did not allow Florida’s moisture to evaporate, but the seller claims that the rest of the car does not present serious problems with rust. The important thing is that the 75-hp Super engine is original and still in the car. Find it for sale here in Saint Simons Island, GA, with a b.i.n. price of $135,000.
