This is one of the most iconic silhouettes ever produced, and this 1962 Porsche 356B represents it all in the best ways. With a mix of preservation and investments to keep it looking correct, this coupe captures the true essence of the original Porsche. We even have the Certificate of Authenticity that tells us this has its numbers-matching motor.
While the Porsche 356 was made to be one of the best cars for drivers out there, the introduction of the B-Series made it a better car to drive. Improved cooling, improved visibility, and improved styling are all that help make it stand out within its own model line. And the overall feeling that you get from this one is that you are really supposed to enjoy it to the fullest. This Certificate of Authenticity tells us that this is wearing its correct Ruby Red. The finish does a great job of having a good gloss that can show off the natural and aerodynamic body lines, and at the same time, it's a true driver-quality finish that proves your classic Porsche was not bought purely for garage art (and that gets respect from enthusiasts.) And you'll appreciate how this shows off the essence of a Porsche with well-fitting panels and just the right amount of brightwork. It's a pure classic, right down to the Porsche family crest in the polished wheel covers.
The factory-correct black interior provides a timeless color combo. These original Porsches established the company's reputation for a driver's machine, and you get that feeling from the moment you get inside. The classic three-spoke sports steering wheel has an excellent grip. It gives you a clear view of the full luminescent gauge panel with the important tach prominently in the center - a tradition continued on Porsches today. The exterior-matching dash is simple and elegant. As you look around, it feels like this is a time capsule. The perforated leatherette upholstery is smooth and clean. The trim is bright. And you'll even appreciate the little things, like the working dome light and Blaupunkt AM/FM radio.
The 1600cc motor has a very cool look to it. This one keeps its pure and classic style right down to the correct decals, six-volt system, and Zenith carburetors. And while this is a very vintage setup that's cool to display, it also confidently fires up and runs with the feeling of proper care. After all, this is the kind of classic that begs to be driven. So you'll love the control of the four-speed manual transmission and the direct driver interaction that is uniquely the 356.
The sale comes complete with service manuals, additional literature, and the Certificate of Authenticity. This is the Porsche legend that is made for getting out there and having real classic car fun. Call today!!!
