1963 Porsche 356B Cabriolet is for sale

It has been 75 years since Porsche began to conquer the market and the hearts of car enthusiasts. It all started with the first production car, the Porsche 356, which was produced in several versions, and at the beginning of the 60s, the model 356B was presented. It was produced until 1963, and one of them, the 1963 Porsche 356B Cabriolet is for sale.

The Porsche 356B is powered by a 1,600cc flat-four engine with dual Weber carburetors. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a replacement four-speed manual gearbox. It sits on chrome-finished 15″ steel wheels, with Porsche-logo hubcaps, wrapped in 165-series Vredestein Sprint Classic tires.

This 356B is finished in Ivory and is in good condition. It is equipped with a black soft top, body-color bumpers with overriders, dual mirrors, a Lietz luggage rack, a passenger-side fender-mounted Reutter badge, rocker trim, Super 90 rear badging, and dual exhaust outlets exiting through the rear overriders. It should be noted that the car had an accident ten years ago and since then the left headlight bucket, driver’s door skin, and windshield have been replaced.

Inside, the seats are covered with tan leather, which also covers the door panels, the upper part of the dashboard and the steering wheel. Additional equipment includes a height-adjustable rearview mirror, RJS Racing Equipment safety belts, a locking glove box, and a Becker Europa push-button radio. The VDO clock is inoperable. The five-digit odometer shows 4,020 miles (total mileage is unknown).

The car comes with a copy of the Kardex, correspondence from Porsche Cars North America, service records, a tool kit and jack, spare parts, 356 workshop manual, manufacturer’s literature, and a Virginia title in the seller’s name.

The auction ends on August 14, and the current highest bid is USD $85,356.
