Description
 
1963 Porsche 356 B 1600 Super Coupe by Karmann Chassis no. 211738 Engine no. 703988 Gearbox no. 58693-741/2A Number matching Restored in its original Smyrna Green Documented by Porsche Kardex Original 75-horsepower Super engine Finished by Porsche in September of 1962, this 356 was sold in California later that December. It recently received a complete mechanical and cosmetic restoration of the highest caliber. The 356 was completely disassembled and stripped down to a bare metal tub. It was decided to restore the car exactly as it left the factory. With the assistance from the details outlined on the original Porsche Kardex, the 356 was refinished in its original, and rare Smyrna Green paint, with brown leatherette interior. The original, numbers matching, 75 horsepower Super engine was completely rebuilt, as was the original transmission. No detail was overlooked, and as many original or NOS parts were used during the restoration process. Inside, the seats, carpet, door panels, and headliner have been reupholstered in the proper Porsche materials. This final T6 iteration of the Karmann Coupe benefits from the continual improvement of the model, and with less than 1,000 miles on a comprehensive restoration, this 356B Coupe is ready for driving, showing, or collecting. About the 356 B The 356B is iconic to day, but in 1959, it made a distinct stylistic break from its predecessor, and it took time for universal acceptance. Many of the changes were practical: body engineering chief Erwin Komenda raised the front and rear bumpers about four inches, to a more useful level. He raised the headlamps as well, which dramatically increased the throw of light in night driving. These alterations also allowed for improved cooling of the highly improved water-sealed aluminum brakes, which were widely considered to be the best in the world. The basic platform was otherwise unchanged, including the carryover 1,582-cubic centimeter, flat-four engine. That, however, was soon enhanced with the Super engines, which provided more horsepower, primarily at high rpms. The 356Bs underwent continual change during their short run from 1960 to 1963, including the introduction of a Karmann-built hard top as a 1961 model. A substantial revision in 1962 gave the 356 a new internal designation, the T6, and a Karmann-built coupe replaced the hardtop and was joined by a coupe built by Reutter. Thanks to its large glass area, this four-season edition offered the best visibility of any model with a roof; it has spacious accommodations and is the 356 of choice when rain or cold is a possibility. -
