The vehicle in detail

The paintwork is in excellent condition, with perfect gaps and panel fit. The exterior trim is in beautiful condition. The interior is in remarkable shape, with reupholstered front seats, German Square weave carpets, a VDM steering wheel, VDO instrumentation, and a Blaupunkt AM/FM radio. 4.5” x 15” chrome wheels are mounted to Vredestein Sprint Classic 165 15 tires (date code 2023). The undercarriage has also been fully detailed and is solid and rust-free.

The previous owner stated that this 356B had a high-level bare metal restoration by the second owner. At that time, the 356 was part of a prominent collection of air-cooled classics in Pennsylvania. The third owner acquired this 356B in 2021, and it was recently traded into European Collectibles


Wills Werk in Fairfax, Virginia, serviced the 356 in June of 2022, and $16,000 was spent.
