1963 Porsche 356B Super Cabriolet
s/n 158372 Engine no. P*706621*
Ivory with Red Leather Interior

Introduced to replace the 356A in 1959, the 356B brought new levels of civilization and refinement to Porsche’s increasingly popular and capable sports car line. While the A and C models of the 356 have traditionally attracted the most attention from mainstream collectors, the 356 B is an underappreciated avenue into classic Porsche ownership. As always, the cars incorporated thoughtful and functional design, along with the tried and true Porsche dogmas of high quality, value, reliability, and mechanical robustness.

This particular car is a late 356B, with the more developed T6 body configuration. It has been recently restored, and retains its matching numbers Super engine. The restoration was comprehensive and included paint, bodywork, chrome, rubber, interior, top, among other major works.

The car makes an extremely strong impression. The paint and bodywork are very nice, with high quality paint over straight panels. The gaps are very good across the board, and the paint is in excellent condition. The chrome is excellent across the board, and the lights are in excellent shape other than a chip in one of the headlight covers. The wheels and tires are also excellent, as are the badges.

The interior was very nicely done, with stunning red leather and correct red square weave carpets. The dashboard and instruments received high quality cosmetic restoration, and the original radio remains. The top was also beautifully redone. The steering wheel is in good condition, with the desirable large horn ring. New correct rubber floor mats were also installed.

The engine compartment was correctly restored and is very clean and nicely detailed. The numerous decals have been correctly reproduced, while the trunk was also restored and is quite tidy, with correct leather spare tire retaining strap. The undercarriage is solid and free of corrosion at this time as the car received new floor pans as part of the restoration process.

The car runs and drives wonderfully. The engine is well tuned and makes great power, and the gearbox has very good synchros and is a pleasure to use. The chassis and suspension are excellent, with just the right blend of solidity, tightness, and compliance.

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a nicely restored matching numbers genuine Super Cabriolet. It runs and drives very well, and is nice enough to casually show, or would make an excellent touring car or weekend driver. It comes with a correct spare wheel and tire, jack, and tool roll.
