The 1948 Porsche 356 employed a platform chassis with rear-mounted air-cooled engine and torsion bar all-independent suspension. 1955 marked the arrival of the 356A, readily distinguishable by its now curved one-piece screen, a wider range of engines and 15'' instead of 16'' wheels. Announced at the 1959 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Porsche 356B T5 enhanced Porsche's reputation as builders of the finest small capacity sports cars, continuing the huge commercial success of its predecessors. Handling, ride and refinement were improved, as well as the addition of a more powerful 90bhp 1600cc engine to the range, a higher nose, more vertical headlamp lenses and raised front winglets - all of which upped the original cars' appeal and firmly established it as by far the best car in its class. Prior to the launch of the 356C in 1963, the 356B with the T6 body was announced in 1962, with the twin air vents, larger rear window, and the facelift to the front of the car with the wider lower edge to the bonnet. A Black plate California car that has been well kept over the years, original interior with the front seats recovered in black hide, original door cards, headlining and electric sunroof. It is probable that the engine has been tweaked, as it is very responsive, with the wider wheels and negative camber kit to the rear, it also handles particularly well. It would be very well suited to use on European Rallies or Tours.
Condition Report Overall In overall very good condition, it drives extremely well small improvements to the coachwork can be made over time, it presents well, has a very good interior, good tyres, and is in our opinion it will be a good car to own. The electric sunroof is an sought after optional extra, as are the wider chrome wheels.
All in very good condition, recent work has been carried out in workshops to ensure that any rust points have been eliminated
The interior is excellent, and in original condition, the front seats have been restored in black leather
Excellent responsive engine, excellent gearbox with good synchro, and brakes.
