For Sale: 1961 Porsche 356B in Sylvania, Ohio


Vehicle Description

1961 Porsche 356B Coupe Mild “Out Law” $73,900 Contact Chuck: 419-618-3855 Matching-numbers 1961 Porsche 356 coupe in great running condition. This is a well-sorted, turn-key car with a mild “outlaw” look. This car contains many of its original components including the original spare tire and rim (as noted on the car’s Certificate of Authenticity it is a Firestone Phoenix tire that appears to be unused). The car was originally Fjord Green and was repainted red/orange – the paint presents very well. All body panels including trunk lid, doors and engine lid are original and numbers-stamped with last 3 digits of VIN (848). Panel fit is excellent all around. Almost all date-stamped components are also correct and date-matching, including the gas tank, original spare rim, Bosch coil, VDO gas gauge float, starter, and voltage regulator (generator is dated 1963). The engine compartment retains it’s unique (1961) and correct firewall insulation. The engine was rebuilt and runs excellently. Upgrades I discovered were big bore pistons and cylinders and an aluminum oil cooler. A compression test showed good compression throughout – between 120-135. Major recent work includes rust repair using correct metal replacement panels to the battery box floor (the tow hook was replaced at this time), rear doglegs and closing panels behind rear longitudinal on driver’s side. The underside has also been properly coated with Wurth product. Installed is a custom Sebring style exhaust made by Karmann Konnection in the UK. The unit was recently bead-blasted and professionally ceramic coated in “tungsten” – a satin silver/grey. See pics. Much more work and many more items have been restored or replaced (I have all receipts and will include in sale), including: Gas tank was removed, sealed with Red Kote and repainted with 2 stage epoxy (original style felt strips underneath tank and under straps) Original fuel petcock rebuilt Trunk compartment detailed/painted, new rubber mat, tire strap bracket, tank hoses and ground strap Generator rebuilt/voltage regulator tested and calibrated Starter rebuilt Distributor rebuilt and detailed by Glenn Ring/with NOS Cap Horns rebuilt and refinished New Boge steering damper New Dunlop tires (with period-style stencils) and 4 wheel alignment New battery/NOS battery cover Engine components refinished correctly/with correct decals New bulbs throughout; headlights, interior dome lights, turn signals, license plate lights Rear vinyl interior panel restored – Refinished period “Moto Lita” steering wheel with vintage Porsche crest horn button (original wheel is currently installed) Original components included in the sale are; stock muffler, rear bumperettes with funnels and front horn grills. All in very good to excellent condition.
