1960 Porsche 356B 1600 Coupe

Going by its internal moniker the T5, the Porsche 356B represented one of the company’s first significant exterior redesigns. The most notable change can be seen in the raised and more pronounced front and rear bumpers, along with higher headlights. These changes had the effect of making the car look a little less like a bubble and we also begin to see a car that more closely resembles the 911 that would succeed it and go on to solidify the Porsche name. While there would be additional design and mechanical changes made to the 356 during its life, the car fundamentally retained the shape and appearance inaugurated with the B. The example we have featured here, coming from near the beginning of the model’s run, is a very striking Fjord Green 1960 Porsche 356 B 1600 Super Coupe with Tan interior and a fairly recent restoration.

I really enjoy the interior of these cars with their painted faces and color contrasting gauges. Without a doubt, it’s a simple interior, but everything looks well done and should have a nice feel. On this particular car the green and tan contrast shows beautifully and appears to have been restored to a very high standard. Top it all off with what actually seems to be a pretty fair asking price and this 356B looks like an all-around winner.
