I’m not going to belabor the point with this post. I just think this car is beautiful; I’m very taken by it and it looks like a wonderful example of the breed. I’ve always found the 356 Cabriolet to be a particularly pretty car and this one fits that bill perfectly. The 356 itself is a simple, yet elegant, piece of machinery and when paired with an open roof possesses all of the vintage charm that I desire. This isn’t really about performance so much as the enjoy of the drive; the melding of aesthetic pleasures to bring about a sense of tranquility.
Here we have the fantastic combination of Bali Blue on Tan showcased on a 1960 Porsche 356B Super 90 Cabriolet. It has been fully restored, is stated to be matching numbers (with supporting CoA), and had 79K miles prior to its restoration, completed in 2014.

3 Year Comprehensive Restoration Finished Fall 2014
Offered at Cooper Classics is this rare and stunning 1960 Porsche 356 B Super 90 Cabriolet. This car is all numbers matching with its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. The car has just received a comprehensive 3 Year restoration that was finished in the fall of 2014. The car has spent its entire life in California and 20 years in storage. The car has driven roughly 600 miles since restoration completion and is in like new condition. The car was restored to the stunning color of Bali Blue over Tan leather interior. The cars matching hardtop was restored at the same time as the vehicle and comes with the car. Previous to the restoration the car had 79,000 original miles
Prices for the 356 always seem to be all over the place. I see fairly standard coupes frequently with prices well below $100K and then there are models like the 356 Roadster I featured a couple weeks back with an asking price of $355K (though we should note it still has not sold). With any model approaching this sort of age those variations can be expected, especially given the relative rarity of some of those models. In general, Cabriolets tend to be more expensive than Coupes and this one follows that line. I’m not sure if it will sell for an asking price I assume is above $200K, but well restored examples aren’t easy to come by and this one does look very well done. It’s in beautiful condition, in a striking color combination, and even comes with a matching hard top. I don’t imagine it will ever see much time on the road anymore, but on those rare days that it does I’m sure the drive would be spectacular.
