1962 Porsche 356B Super Cabriolet

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.

1996 Porsche 911 Carrera

For my 2nd 993 of the week I’ve chosen this 1996 Carrera, which stood out to me for one very obvious reason: it’s Speed Yellow. This might be the only standard Carrera I have ever seen in Speed Yellow. I’ve come across a few other variants in this color (Turbos, the GT2, Cabriolets), but not a bog-standard 993. It’s a flashy color so it shouldn’t be surprising that it might not be hugely popular amongst buyers choosing the Carrera. Regardless, I love a Yellow on Black car (cue Wiz Khalifa) and with the base Carrera toning down the flash just a bit, this makes for a fantastic combination.

The rest of this car comes across just as well as the color. The mileage is very reasonable, the interior and exterior appear in very good condition, and the seller claims a fully documented service history. The asking price certainly isn’t low, but for a well maintained 993 in a rare color, it isn’t especially high either. For someone who might be a fan of this color, but would prefer something either a little less flashy or a bit less expensive than what a 993 Turbo might set you back, this car should present an excellent opportunity.

1997 Porsche 993 C2S

Though lately I’ve been writing up various 911 variants from the ’70s and ’80s, my mind keeps turning to the 993 and I have been telling myself to feature one or two of them here at GCFSB. So I’ll begin with this one: an stunningly beautiful 1997 993 C2S painted Guards Red with Black leather interior, located in California. Offered with either all-wheel drive as the Carrera 4S or rear-wheel drive as the Carrera S, the S version of the 993 had a lower suspension and featured the wider rear fenders of the 993 Turbo while remaining naturally aspirated. It also retained the standard moveable rear spoiler rather than taking on the Turbo’s whale tale. While some prefer the spoiler, I’ve always preferred the whale tale. Either way, with its wider body, the Carrera S had a much more aggressive look compared with its slimmer Carrera siblings and for many enthusiasts presents a much more desirable overall look.

1980 Porsche 911SC Weissach Edition

I’ve written about a few 911SCs here at GCFSB recently that were typically very well maintained, original, and very pretty. The SC was the first 911 I had any experience with so those models tend to be the examples that immediately draw my attention. This time I’ll go with one that’s a little bit more unique though not quite in perfect condition. Here we have a 1980 Porsche 911SC Weissach Edition located in Toronto. There were 408 Weissach Edition cars produced for the US market in 1980 as a testament to Porsche’s Motorsport team housed in Weissach, Germany. These cars featured either a Metallic Black or Platinum Metallic (like the one featured here) exterior to go along with a Doric Grey leather interior fitted with Burgundy carpeting. Other touches included a front chin spoiler, whale tail, and Platium-painted Fuchs. As of its last update, the Weissach registry shows 61 surviving cars.

You are bidding on a 1980 Porsche 911 SC Weissach Edition. For those of you who are not familiar, the 1980 Weissach Edition was a limited run of 406 cars built to honor the Porsche Research and Development center located in Weissach Germany. This car was only sold the US and they came in just 2 exclusive exterior colors, Platinum Metallic or Black Metallic, 203 of each colour. They both featured indentical inteiors of Doric Gray Full leather, rust carpets and piping and sport seats. On the exterior they featured a 930 style rear spoiler, front chin spoiler, 15×6 and 15×7 rear forged Fuchs alloys painted in platinum metallic. Most came with a sunroof.

1968 Volkswagen Type 3 Squareback

While the Beetle was lighting up the sales charts in the 1960s, Volkswagen had a whole other range of products that got a bit overshadowed by that post-war wonder. One of my favorites is the Type 3 Squareback. Two door estate vehicles have seemed to peter out in recent years, one of the few holdouts still hanging around being the MINI Clubman. But even that car has a third door on one side to assist with rear seat access.

Volkswagen developed the Type 3 to give buyers of the marque a larger choice before they decided to skip the brand for another manufacturer. These cars still carried VW’s famous rear engine layout and came in three body styles, a two-door sedan known as the Notchback, the 2-door Fastback and 2-door Squareback that we see here. Only the Fastback and Squareback were sold in the US, but many Notchbacks have made their way here in previous years. This Squareback for sale in Washington has 74,000 miles and was repainted in its original color seven years ago.

1997 Porsche 911 Targa

The 911 Cabriolet, like the one we featured yesterday, is a popular choice for those seeking a little bit of an edge to their open air motoring. Since 1983, Porsche has been offering up this variant to sun chasers, but one open air 911 has been with us even longer. That model is the Targa. Introduced early on in the 911’s history, the original model had a roll hoop with a removable hard roof over the driver and front passenger and a folding soft top rear section. This gave way to a fixed, wraparound glass rear window a few years down the road.

With the introduction of the 993, Porsche changed the Targa formula a bit and introduced a sliding glass roof panel that disappeared inside the cabin, lending a bit more structural rigidity to the package. Some buyers viewed it as a big sunroof, others saw it as an improvement in all-weather versatility over the outgoing Targa model. Not a lot of these 993 Targas were sold, as most favored either the Coupe or Cabriolet instead of this in between model. This Targa for sale in Alexandria, Virginia caught my eye, due in large part to the replica Porsche Cup wheels.

1957 Volkswagen Beetle

After featuring a couple of nice Type IIIs and a Karmann Ghia, I figured it was about time to seek out a cool Type I Beetle once again. Some people deride the original Beetle for being noisy, slow and not particularly comfortable. I grew up with a 1967 Beetle, and to be honest, once I got to driving age, I didn’t give the old Beetles much thought. But every now and then one comes along that grabs my attention. Usually it will be one done up with the Cal Look, like this ’57 Oval Window for sale in San Diego.

1957 Oval Window
Color – Dove Blue (See picture for original color)
Rebuilt Engine 36hp
Original Plates
I still have the original wheels, which are already painted to match.
I also have pictures of the restoration process and repairs.

Asking $17,000 OBO – Please call or email. Serious Buyers. Cash Only.

The one thing that annoys me with some Beetles is that they can be over restored. Paint that is just a bit too perfect, chrome that doesn’t belong on certain bits and an engine bay you can eat off of. You know the type of car I’m talking about. This Oval Window, though, is just nice enough without being too perfect. The wheels and wood slatted roof rack are a nice period touch, too. It would have been nice if the seller would have given a mileage figure, but this looks to be a pretty honest Bug. The asking price is right in line for Beetles of the period. Really good Oval Windows like this can bring anywhere from $14,000 to $15,000 with really well restored or good quality originals cresting $20,000.…

1964 Volkswagen Type III Notchback

Screen Shot 2013-01-27 at 10.55.16 AM

My father owned a few Beetles in his day and used a 1967 model as his daily driver while I was growing up. I know air-cooled Volkswagens have their devotees, but few grabbed my attention over the years. Occasionally, I’ll come across a Beetle, Bus, or other air-cooled VW that is done just right that it has me changing my tune. Such is the case with this Notchback for sale in San Diego. It might not be the most eye catching vintage Volkswagen, but this car is so well done that I couldn’t help but find a place for a car like this in my dream garage.

This is an incredibly nice car that I recently have put together after sitting inside a garage for almost 12 years and being painted. It has been driven about 50 miles since completed. My buddy and I purchased this work in progress from the previous owner when he needed to move and empty the garage, it had been covered with a Technalon cover all this time and the paint and body is perfect. The paint has just been recently professionally polished and is show quality. It is absolutely rust free with perfect floors. The interior is also very nice. The dash is perfect and has a new Flat 4 steering wheel. The chrome has been redone and is perfect too.

Along with the purchase it came with a rebuilt IRS transaxle with a super differential cover which I have installed into the IRS subframe that was modified for an upright engine. Also it was powder coated satin black. It has adjustable spring plates and new KYB Excel G shocks (front also) for a smooth ride.

1965 Volkswagen Beetle

An all time classic, the VW beetle is the car that is responsible for my passion for cars. Growing up my father drove Beetles and it seemed that in grade school everyone in my town had one, which could very well have been the case. With over 21 million cars produced over a span of 73 years, it is not only the longest running model ever, but one of the most iconic cars of all time.

With high production numbers and a huge parts aftermarket, the Beetle is the perfect platform for customizing on a budget. This ’65 is a nice clean example of a Beetle resto-mod.

This Auction is for a used classic and collectible 1965 Volkswagen Beetle. This car is extra clean with having had a ground off restoration 6 Years ago. Has Cream interior. This car comes with rotors on the front and special wheels. There is a Alpine radio with CD system fitted. Engine is a 1776cc with new Webber carbs fitted recently (90HP). Comes with a full car cover and overlay mats. This car runs and drives well and needs a to find a good home. This car is available for any inspection.

With a mild restoration and stock engine, this car is a nice clean driver condition vehicle.  Given the condition and mileage of this car I would expect that it is close to meeting its reserve and likely should sell in the $7,500 to $8,500 range. We’ll have to see how motivated the seller actually is in a few days.

1981 Volkswagen Brasilia

In the early 1970s, Volkswagen sought to develop a new line of cars for the Brazilian market, based on Beetle architecture that offered a bit more space and practicality. Thus, in 1973 the Brasilia was born, which bore resemblance to the 412. The Brasilia utilized the 1600 engine from the Beetle and remained in production until 1982, having been produced in Mexico and in Nigeria in kit form. Here is a very clean, original example that made the rare trek into the US.
