One California Owner from New – Mostly Original Paint – Unbelievable Documentation Including Photos of Tourist Delivery – Matching Numbers Engine

This is a nearly unbelievable find, an unrestored, original, one-owner 1961 Porsche 356B Super 90 Drauz Roadster maintained in nearly impeccable condition by its one-and-only California owner who picked it up September 26, 1960 on a tourist delivery at the Porsche factory.

Despite being his daily driver in its early years, the original paintwork has survived incredibly well and has only required minor repair. The engine remains original to the car although like many Super 90s, a later (stronger) 741/2C transmission (s/n 78754) was required after the original 6-bolt ring gear failed in the early 60’s.

Das Fahrzeug im Detail

The original Solex carburetors (and their air filters) have recently been rebuilt, reinstalled and tuned. Its odometer now reads nearly 60,000 miles; the leading “1” is missing from that total but is nearly impossible to note in looking at its condition.

The seat covering was replaced with leatherette some years ago and has now been redone in the correct style vinyl. It has new tires on the original date-coded chrome wheels, Carrera wheel spacers added in 1963 and a recovered dash top from years ago.

Recognizing the original owner’s passion for it, there is a monumental file of original documents including manuals and service booklet. The former owner regrets that during shipping from Germany the original tool kit and jack were misplaced (stolen?) and it now has a one year later complete tool roll and jack supplied by the shipper at the time. The camber compensator was factory installed. There are two sets of California license plates, orange as originally registered and black as replaced by the California DMV in 1963. The square weave carpets are original.

Finished in Ivory (Elfenbein 6004) over Black with a later Black convertible top and full tonneau cover, it has a Blaupunkt Frankfurt multi-band radio with factory installed U.S. frequencies (costing $129.80 in 1960). The seats have factory recline adjustment, a $28.60 option.

Every bodywork component, both visible and underneath, is original and as-delivered in 1960 except for a scrape on the battery box from a curb encounter, another testament to its benign life in dry California and the sole owner’s care and attention.

Equally desirable as an occasional weekend driver to carve up winding hill roads or as a preservation class entrant at shows, this is a superlative 356B Porsche Super 90 Roadster in one of Porsche’s most desirable and sought body styles. It embodies Porsche passion extending over six decades of single ownership and meticulous preservation.
And it drives as expected: in a word, “great”.
