Details

Mechanically, it is a blast to drive with a powerful period-correct 1600cc Super-90 engine (producing 90 horsepower). The Kardex confirms it was originally delivered with a Super-90 engine number 801321, the current engine in the 356 is 801139 (type 616/7). The manual 4-speed 716 transmission shifts perfectly and the four-wheel drum braking system has been recently rebuilt.

According to the Porsche Kardex, this 356B T5 Roadster was delivered by Brumos Porsche in Jacksonville, Florida, and the original color combination was Black with a Red interior. The factory options: cigar lighter, ashtray, exterior mirror, armrest, and chrome wheels with Dunlop 165 x 15” tires. Several options have been added including Hella 128 amber fog lights, European headlamps, and painted rims with Vredestein 165 HR 15 86H tires. Complete with a tool kit, jack, owner’s manual, and spare tire. Extremely well maintained with a recent service and ready to enjoy!

Roadsters have become highly collectible, and quality examples such as this 356 come to market infrequently. This 356 Roadster is perfect for 356 club shows, Cars & Coffee or simply to enjoy with the top-down for weekend touring.

History
Porsche’s popular 356 Roadster was introduced for the 1960 model year as a replacement of the one-year-only Convertible D, the Speedster’s more civilized successor. The new T-5 Roadster brought several marked changes in appearance: The front fenders and headlamps were raised, as were both the front and rear bumpers, to better deal with urban parking. New vertical bumper guards also helped in that respect. New brake-cooling intakes were added to the nose below the front bumper.

The new Roadster shared many of the comfort attributes of the Convertible D, including roll-up windows, comfortable seats, and a well-constructed convertible top with a tan-painted frame and wraparound plastic rear window. For those with competition in mind, the windshield could be removed, and roadsters, like the Speedster and Convertible D, soon became popular in amateur sports car racing around the world.
