For Sale: 1963 Porsche 356B in Costa Mesa, California


Vehicle Description

This 1963 Porsche 356B (T6) Karmann Coupe was completed on September 4, 1962 as a 1963 model for the US market. The original build specification included Ivory (6204) paintwork, a Black leatherette interior and Continental tires. The Certificate of Authenticity on hand confirms that the engine, #609340, and transmission, #58129, match factory records.

The current state of this lovely Porsche is exactly the way it was originally built. It currently wears nice Ivory paintwork that is in good condition overall with only a few wear marks. The exterior trim is mostly original (not reproduction) and is in very good condition. The side window frames have been beautifully re-chromed. The black vinyl interior has been redone to a high standard although an incorrect carpet material was selected. The dash gauges are in good working order and it appears as if the dash paint may be the original finish from 1962. The wheels have been refinished and look great with original chrome hubcaps with crests. New Vredestein Sprint Classic tires in size 165 HR 15 were just installed and help to complete the period-correct look. The front trunk is mostly original, but the battery area has been correctly redone, we're sure to cure rust. The matching number engine is nicely detailed and correct throughout including the right carburetors and air cleaners. On the road, this T6 B is tons of fun with an engine that runs very well and feels like it has more than 60 HP. The gearbox shifts easily and doesn't need any special attention. The brakes, which are new, stop the car easily and keep it going straight. In short, this is very good driver that is matching numbers throughout and is priced attractively.

-New Brake Drums and Shoes (arced to fit properly)
