Description
 
Registration Number: EU Customs Paid Chassis Number: 124041 Throughout 356 B productions, Porsche introduced some of the most significant changes ever made on the 356. Improvements were focused on handling, ride and refinement as well as their little sports cars sparkling performance. The reliability was further enhanced whilst Porsche also made a few subtle aesthetic tweaks, all of which upped the original cars appeal and firmly established it as by far the best car in its class. The cars built between September 1959 and August 1961 were often referred to as T-5 versions, consequently the rest are T-6. They all nevertheless retained all the hallmarks that had made the 356 great. The rear seats were lowered to optimise headroom and also split centrally in order to facilitate three passengers and their luggage-should such a feat be required. This excellent Porsche 356 Coupe underwent a $30,000 restoration in the US some years ago and still presents itself in excellent condition. The body was stripped to bare metal and the car was repainted in the original Bali blue, the interior was partly retrimmed in black with grey carpeting. The original leather seats were retained, as was the original wireless and the seat belts. Furthermore the Porsche received new front and rear window glass, body seals and chrome. The cabin abounds in delightful period features, including the Blaupunkt AM/FM radio. The exteriors appearance was enhanced with deluxe hub caps, an external rear-view mirror and dual exhausts. A thorough mechanical rebuilt included the engine, transmission and brake system and a new exhaust system and clutch. Carefully and consistently maintained by its US owner/collector this 356 is an exceptional example of the very popular 356 B Coupe and not to be missed.
