1962 Porsche 356B Cabriolet
s/n 156874 engine no. 608730
Black with Black Leather Interior

The 356 B represents significant advances in drivability and comfort over earlier 356 models, and features the updated T6 body with its external fuel filler and enlarged trunk opening. In cabriolet form, it is a civilized and exhilarating way to enjoy the traditional Porsche values of high quality, value, reliability, and mechanical robustness.

This particular matching numbers car has been treated to a comprehensive high quality restoration, which remains fresh and like new in almost all respects. The restoration exhibits exceptionally fine attention to detail throughout, and appears to have been quite thorough. Areas such as the trunk, body panel fit, and door jambs are done to extremely nice standards, indicating that no corners were cut where lesser restorations sometimes prove to be lacking.

Cosmetically, the car makes an extremely strong impression. The panel gaps are exceedingly fine and the fit is very good. The panels are very straight and the paintwork was done to very high standards. The wheels are chromed, and all chrome is in fine condition. It is excellent on the large areas such as the bumper overriders, while some of the smaller trim is very good. The glass and lights are excellent, as is the top.

The interior is also very nice. The door jambs are exceptional, as is the carpet fit. Naturally, the carpets are the correct German square weave type. The seats were capably reupholstered in high quality black leather, and the dashboard, instruments, and switches are excellent. The frequently missing or maimed sun visors are present and in like new condition.

The trunk and engine compartment are both detailed to very high standards and make great impressions. The spare wheel is detailed, including the Michelin tire, and the correct leather strap is still installed. The matching numbers normal engine is extremely clean, and has the correct original decals and air cleaners. The underside is also representative of the quality of the restoration of this car. It is very solid and tidy with no rust present. The floors and battery box have both been capably replaced.

This is an unusually well-restored example of these increasingly sought after cars. 356`s are unique among classic cars for their robustness and usability. There is a certain simplicity and honesty to these cars that has made their appeal timeless, and this particular car is a no-excuses car that is sure to bring much joy to its new owner, who would be proud to show it or use it for pleasure.
