1963 Porsche 356B Coupe! Signal Red over Black! COA!

Shift Bespoke Automotive is proud to offer another beautiful example of a 1963 356B! This 356 is a late 1962 build, titled as a 1963 model. It was the subject of a bare metal restoration 7 years ago. For your convenience we took a small library of photos in natural sunlight! Please feel free to contact us at 949-891-Cars (2277) FOR QUESTIONS, SCHEDULE TEST DRIVES OR INSPECTIONS. Inspections are welcome and encouraged if you have any reservations. Keep in mind we ship cars worldwide - sight unseen!


*** All of our cars come from collectors, customers or reputable sources never from auctions. Why is this important? Not all cars at auctions are bad, but all bad cars are at auctions.

For your convenience we took a small library of photos, these photo are taken in natural sunlight. We don't have a mock studio or photoshop/edit any of our photos.


THE EXTERIOR, BODY AND TRIM 

Signal Red is in excellent shape and very iconic color and still shows well after a 7 years. The front trunk pan was replaced due to battery acid corrosion (common issue!) but all other pans are original and the car is completely rust free.

    THE INTERIOR

    Black interior is in good shape! 

    THE ENGINE/SUSPENSION

    Engine and Transmission run and shift like a 356 should! The car has had a recent complete service, including the aluminum brakes, calipers, oil and valve adjustment. The chassis and transmission are matching numbers, but the engine, although not matching, is a 1963 engine.


    We offer limousine airport (SNA) pick-up if you're flying in to pick-up this beautiful vehicle or we can help facilitate shipping directly to your front door.

    The Porsche 356 is a luxury sports car which was first produced by Austrian company Porsche Konstruktionen GesmbH (1948-1949), and then by German company Dr Ing. h. c. F. Porsche GmbH (1950-1965). It was Porsche's first production automobile. Earlier cars designed by the Austrian company includes Cisitalia Grand Prix race car, and the Volkswagen Beetle as well as Auto Union Grand Prix Cars were designed by the German company.

    The 356 was a lightweight and nimble-handling rear-engine rear-wheel-drive 2-door sportscar available in hardtop coupe and open configurations. Engineering innovations continued during the years of manufacture, contributing to its motorsports success and popularity. Production started in 1948 at Gmund, Austria, where approximately 50 cars were built. In 1950 the factory relocated to Zuffenhausen, Germany, and general production of the 356 continued until April 1965, well after the replacement model 911 made its autumn 1963 debut. Of the 76,000 originally produced, approximately half survive.

    In late 1955, with numerous small but significant changes, the 356A was introduced. Its internal factory designation, "Type 1", gave rise to its nickname "T1" among enthusiasts. In early 1957 a second revision of the 356A was produced, known as Type 2 (or T2). Production of the Speedster peaked at 1,171 cars in 1957 and then started to decline. The four-cam "Carrera" engine, initially available only in the Spyder race cars, became an available option starting with the 356A.

    In late 1959 significant styling and technical refinements gave rise to the 356B (a T5 body type). The mid-1962 356B model was changed to the T6 body type (twin engine lid grilles, an external fuel filler in the right front wing/fender and a larger rear window in the coupe). It is interesting to note that the Porsche factory didn't call attention to these quite visible changes with a different model designation. However, when the T6 got disc brakes, with no other visible alterations, they called it the model C, or the SC when it had the optional extra powerful engine. A unique "

    Porsche designers made the decision to utilize the engine case they had originally designed for the Volkswagen Beetle. It was an air-cooled pushrod OHV flat-four engine. For use in the 356, they designed new cylinder heads, camshaft, crankshaft, intake and exhaust manifolds and used dual carburetors to more than double the VW's horsepower. While the first prototype 356 had a mid-engine layout, all later 356's had a rear-mounted layout. When the four-cam "Carrera" engine became available in late 1955, this engine became an extra cost option starting with the 356A, and was available through the 356 model run.

    The 356 has always been popular with the motor press. In 2004, Sportscar International ranked the 356C tenth on their list of Top Sports Cars of the 1960s. Today, the Porsche 356 is a highly regarded collector car. The Porsche 356 Carrera (with its special DOHC racing engine), SC, Super 90 and Speedster models are today among the most desirable 356 models. 

    The original selling price of a late 1950s Porsche was around US$4,000, which was also the price of a new Cadillac today they regularly bring between US$20,000 and well over US$100,000 at auction.

    Thousands of owners worldwide maintain the 356 tradition, preserving their cars and driving them regularly. The US-based 356 Registry on its website states that it is "...world's largest classic Porsche club."
