1963 Porsche 356 B Coupe VIN 212805
Photo Album –
This is an exceptional, driver level, Porsche 356 B T6 which has been owned by the present owner since 1994. Prior ownership can be traced back to the original owner in 1963 as well as maintenance history from all previous owners, who have resided primarily in Colorado. The current mileage driven is 90,600 which is believed to be correct. It retains its original ruby red exterior and black leatherette interior, according to the COA.
The coupe underwent an extensive, bare metal, restoration in 1999 to 2000. The metal and paint work was completed by a professional Porsche repair facility in the Denver, Colorado area, Vintage Restoration. At that time there was no evidence of major rust, however there were minor rust areas, such as the lower section of the doors, rocker panels, longitudionals, diagonal, battery floor and closing panels, which were repaired or replaced and the car was repainted. The panel fit and gaps are good to very good, however the hood is slightly misaligned and the left side pawl needs to be removed and cleaned. The chrome plating is good to very good and the windshield is in excellent condition. The car was driven very sparingly, less than 5,000 miles, since the major restoration.
The engine currently installed is a 912 model which was completely rebuilt in 1999 to 2000 by 356 specialist, Trevor’s. who is located in the Denver area. A pre-purchase inspection and minor tune up was conducted by Storz Garage in January 2021 and the leak-down test showed 7%, 8%, 4%, and 8% loss. The tires are in near new condition, but are dated 2009 and should be replaced. The wheels are chrome plated 5 ½”, aftermarket, and in excellent condition. During the 2000 restoration all steering and suspension components were renewed or replaced and the front drum brakes were updated with a disc brake system and a dual circuit master cylinder was installed, together with stainless steel brake lines and an electric fuel pump. The engine performs very well. It should be noted that the original and complete engine, P 610154, needing to be rebuilt, is included in the sale. All lights and electrical systems function properly and an updated battery is installed.
The vinyl seat coverings and carpets were replaced with correct materials, however the original door panels were retained. The original side and rear glass is in good condition.
This is a very good example of desirable, rust free and very competitively priced, Porsche 356 B which needs to be driven and enjoyed. There is not a tool kit included. The car is located in the Denver, Colorado area.
