1961 Porsche 356B 1600 Roadster


Chassis no. 88430
UK / EU Registered – Taxes Paid

Among Porsche 356 aficionados, one of the most desirable models is the early 1960s "B” Roadster variant as represent superb value for money visive the Speedster

Porsche's Type 356, introduced in 1948, is acknowledged to be one of the world's great sports cars. Over a 15-year production run, the handsome and durable 356 evolved from a streamlined little aluminum-bodied coupe powered by a VW-derived, 46bhp 1100cc air-cooled flat four to a powerful autobahn burner carrying a complex, two-litre four-cam boxer Carrera engine, producing 130bhp. The cars steady development brought not only coupes, but introduced luxurious cabriolets, speedsters, and roadsters 

The 356B, produced from 1960 through 1963, represents the mid-point in this design's progression. In what is known as "T5" form, the B introduced new front and rear sheet-metal, while retaining the curved front trunk lid and rounded fenders of the 356A series. The B also added some features demanded by American customers, such as raised front and rear bumpers with over-riders to better protect the body from parking mishaps.

The headlamps were raised, a larger hood handle added, and front vent windows appeared in the doors. Mechanically, the gearbox and drum brakes were upgraded. A new steering wheel and column refreshed the interior, along with redesigned rear seats.

It should be noted that the engine installed in this car is not the original matching numbers unit, but a correct 356B 1600 unit, just with a later number in the same series and production year. 

Our superbly presented example is finished in Ruby Red (6002) as originally manufactured.

 Also accompanying the car are:

  • Handbook Pouch / Drivers Manual
  • Tools & Jack
  • Factory Issued Certificate of Authenticity

This stunning and rare 356B Roadster is available for immediate inspection at our central London showrooms.
