We are proud to present this very rare and beautiful matching numbers 1960 Porsche 356B 1600S Roadster.
Porsche’s popular 356 Roadster was introduced for the 1960 model year as a replacement of the one-year-only Convertible D, the Speedster’s more civilized successor. The new T-5 Roadster brought several marked changes in appearance: The front fenders and headlamps were raised, as were both the front and rear bumpers, to better deal with urban parking. New vertical bumper guards also helped in that respect. New brake-cooling intakes were added to the nose below the front bumper. There were new cast-aluminium Alfin brake drums with iron liners, and the brakes had improved sealing to repel water.
The new Roadster shared many of the comfort attributes of the Convertible D, including roll-up windows, comfortable seats, and a well-constructed convertible top with a tan-painted frame and wraparound plastic rear window. For those with competition in mind, the windshield could be removed, and roadsters, like the Speedster and Convertible D, soon became popular in amateur sports car racing around the world.
This example has undergone a body of restauration several years ago.
The overall condition is very good since the car has only been driven in a few amateur rally’s over the last few years. It only shows some minor traces of use.
Body and undercarriage are absolutely rust free. The technical side is without question.
Break systems, shocks electrics etc… are all up to date. This 356B Roadster has lovely signal red paint and good chrome.
The black leatherette interior is as new and of course there are no missing switches or broken dials. The soft top has been renewed just a year ago and is like new.
In short a beautiful highly collectible car and a sound investment.
