Between 1959 and 1963, Porsche produced one of its legendary models, the Porsche 356B. However, this car is not like other examples. It’s a Reutter-bodied 1961 Porsche 356B Super 90 Cabriolet and it’s currently for sale.
The 356 B is powered by a replacement 1.6-liter flat-four engine paired with a replacement four-speed manual transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. In 2016, the engine was rebuilt and the work was done by Bob Hindson Racing. The car is mounted on chrome 15″ wheels wrapped in 175/65 Sumitomo HTR A/S tires.
This example is finished in Aetna Blue, and some repairs have been done recently. It is equipped with a left side mirror, a blue soft top, gold badging, a single engine grille, a black top boot, body-color bumpers with chrome overriders and integrated exhaust outlets, Koni shocks, front and rear sway bars, and finned four-wheel drum brakes. The shock absorbers, steering wheel and axle limiter were replaced, while the king pins were rebuilt.
Inside, the seats are covered in red leather that also covers the door panels. Extras include floor mats, a heater, a VDO clock and a lockable glove box. The five-digit odometer shows 97,247 miles (total mileage is unknown).
The car comes with service records, a Kardex report, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity (listing the car’s original colors, powertrain numbers, and factory-delivered options as well as a delivery date of February 22, 1961), Kardex report, multiple keys, service records from 1996 onwards, and a clean Kansas title in the seller’s name.
The auction ends on April 28 and the current highest bid is $90,000 USD.
