This 356 was completely disassembled, stripped down to the bare metal, and refinished in its factory exterior color. It was reassembled with new decos, rubbers, and brightwork. A complete new interior was installed including Red German vinyl, oatmeal German square weave carpets, new rubber floor mats, and an ivory headliner. The undercarriage was stripped to bare metal and was recoated with German Wurth undercoat. All the suspension components have been refinished, new sound deadening was installed while the engine was out, and the engine was detailed with all the sheet metal powder coated.
Mechanically powered by a matching Super-90 1600cc flat-four engine producing 90 horsepower paired to a 4-speed manual 741 transmission with a four-wheel drum braking system. Complete with Kardex, spare tire, and recent service records. A very rare opportunity to acquire a Super-90 356B Coupe in a stunning color combination.
In late 1959 significant styling and technical refinements gave rise to the 356B (a T5 body type). The mid-1962 356B model was changed to the T6 body type (twin engine lid grilles, an external fuel filler in the right front wing/fender, and a larger rear window in the coupé). It is interesting to note that the Porsche factory didn’t call attention to these quite visible changes with a different model designation. However, when the T6 got disc brakes, with no other visible alterations, they called it the model C, or the SC when it had the optional extra powerful engine.
