The Porsche 356 is the genesis of the Porsche sports cars we all
know of today. Created by Ferdinand Ferry Porsche, son of the
company founder, the 356 was built with the idea of producing a
small, lite weight sporting car that utilized a rear mounted engine
and body architecture adapted from the original Volkswagen Beetle.
Built in Zuffenhausen, Germany, the original 356 of 1948 soon gave
way to the updated 356A in 1955, and then on to the modernized 356B
of 1959. The gorgeous example you see on offer here is a
four-cylinder, air-cooled, rear-engine, rear-wheel-drive car with
unitized pan and body construction built in 1960. Finished in
Signalrot (signal red) over black vinyl with matching black cloth
convertible top, this 356 is in almost showroom new condition. This
car has never been fully restored or had the body separated from
the pan. It has one repaint and a fresh interior with new carpets
and seat covers. The engine is a 1600cc, pushrod flat four Type
616/36 from a later model Porsche 912 with dual weber carburetors
and a four speed manual transmission. A date code correct block is
with the car and is included with the sale. The engine has been
recently resealed, the electronics converted to 12 volt, and
five(Including spare) new Continental tires have been fitted. This
classic Porsche is a wonderful automobile to drive. The lightness
and ease of the controls make it a thoroughly enjoyable experience,
while the auditory senses find pleasure in the familiar rasp of the
air cooled flat four engine. The 356 is and has been a rising star
is the collector car market, and this example is priced to sell.

show or drive with no excuses or concerns. Contact Brian at
