If you weren’t up for a big project like the 356 Super Cabriolet we featured almost two weeks ago, then this might be the Porsche for you. This 1962 356B Super Cabriolet is a well documented, numbers matching example that lived in Europe until 1968. It has been repainted once in its original color of Smyrna Green and has had certain other mechanicals overhauled but retains an original interior.

1962 Porsche 356B 356 B Super Cabriolet, Offered for sale is an absolutely gorgeous, very original, award-winning, matching-numbers 1962 Porsche 356 B Super cabriolet in striking factory correct Smyrna Green over Brown leather seats. The 1600 Super was created as a high- performance option to the regular 1600, offering 15 more horsepower with larger valves, increased compression, and improved performance. Featuring the more sought-after T6 body style with twin-engine grilles on the deck lid, and an outside (rather than in the trunk) fuel filler, this best-of-the-breed 356 B 1600 Super is highly desirable. This well-loved example presents wonderfully and has an interesting documented provenenace.
On December 2, 1961, Richard Steppler walked into the Volkswagen—Porsche dealership owned by Dr. Guy Beretich in Pordenone, Italy, and bought himself an early Christmas present – this magnificent green 356 B Porsche. Eventually Mr. Steppler passed the car to his nephew, Richard Kubacki, and it is known that the car stayed in Europe, largely Munich, Germany, and Monte Carlo until 1968, when it was shipped to Chicago. At some point the car was repainted silver and in 1988 it was purchased by it”s last owner (of 25 years) in Milwaukee with 79,000 miles on the clock.
