THE PORSCHE 356B

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. Mechanically, the gearbox and drum brakes were upgraded. A new steering wheel and column refreshed the interior, along with redesigned rear seats. A Super model with raised compression added an extra 15bhp over the standard version.

THE MOTOROCAR OFFERED

This highly desirable, 356B Super is particularly compelling due to the beautifully restored condition it is presented in. According to its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this stunning Reutter-bodied 356B was completed on January 28th, 1960, a factory 1600 S (S for Super), denoting that it received the higher performance 75bhp engine as opposed to the standard 60bhp unit. Finished in classic Ruby Red over light brown leatherette upholstery from new, this elegant 356 was optioned with armrest, headrest and Continental tires. The new Porsche was most likely delivered new to the Pacific Northwest, where it was purchased by the late Mr. Jorgenson from a Lake Oswego, OR based dentist in 1963. Mr. Jorgenson - who's family is offering this car today - was a lifelong Porsche enthusiast and PCA member, who owned some of the finest 356 models ever produced; all in absolute exceptional condition. This Coupe left Mr. Jorgenson's collection in 1969 when a friend persuaded him to sell it, but was bought back to the Jorgenson stable in 2002, where it has remained ever since. A comprehensive mechanical and cosmetic restoration was performed between 2012 and 2014, where the exterior was finished in sinister black, while the interior was re-upholstered in beautiful Bordeaux red by the specialists at Autobahn Interiors. Retaining its highly desirable matching numbers Super engine, this stunning Coupe is fitted with a period luggage rack and wood rimmed steering wheel, and offered with the COA, tool kit, owner's manual and restoration records. A better restored example will be hard to find anywhere.
