1960 Porsche 356B

“Porsche designed the 356 with performance in mind. By refining the engine from mid-rear to its eventual rear placement, and tweaking design elements, the 356 was lighter and faster than many of its contemporaries. As the 356 was further refined for performance, it shared fewer parts with its sister car, the Volkswagen Beetle.” - Start World Transportation

This 1960 Porsche 356B 1600 Coupe finished in silver with red interior is in very good overall condition as can be seen in the accompanying photographs. Originally a California car the body and underside of this Porsche has fared extremely well. The body was painted approximately 20 years ago, although not in its original color of Heron Gray the current Mercedes Benz silver selected accents the body lines of this 356 and plays off well against the red leather interior.

The numbers matching 1600 motor rebuilt by GN Engineering approximately 12,000 miles ago runs smoothly and benefits from the installation of dual Weber carburetors. The flat 4 motor is mated to a numbers matching transmission according to the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. Owned by the same Porsche aficionado since 2012 this 356 has been well maintained and driven, most recently completing a 400-mile trouble free expedition. This 356B is running on Vredestein Sprint Classic 165/15 tires on date correct steel wheels.

The interior of this Porsche is void of any excessive wear and presents very well. The interior has been upgraded in leather employing the correct stitching pattern on the seats.
