1961 Porsche 356 Additional Info:

This is a very nice driver quality Porsche 356 T5 Super. The Super has the 75 HP engine.

I do not have a COA or Kardex but a long time ago I called Porsche and they verified it is a Numbers Matching engine, and the color of RED is the correct color.

It wears an older restoration which shows some blemished in the paint as you would expect.

Interior is in good shape but the drivers seat has a torn seam that needs to be fixed.

Mechanically: Runs good but has never been rebuilt, could use a professional tune up, shifts through all the gears nicely except it pops out of reverse.

I leave my hand on it and it works fine. This needs some linkage adjustment.. So I'm told!!!

The Car has No rust on it, underside is undercoated.

Hoods & Doors have very nice 3mm gaps, See pictures.

I think A fare starting price of $56950 with no reserve.. The NADA value is over $75k

To me it doesn't make sense to list it low with a reserve..

New stuff: Just rebuilt starter, New front wheel bearings, Tie Rods, Brakes calipers rebuilt..

The Vin #: 116078,Engine #: 89365 It has a Clear Mass. Title.

Please send a msg if you want more pictures of anywhere on the Car..

History of the 1961 Porsche 356B (T5) 1600 Super

For the 1960 model year, the 356A model was out and replaced by the 356B, which was known internally as the T5. It looked similar on the outside, but there were numerous small but important changes to the body. The front bumper had enlarged rim guards that were positioned higher, and the headlights were slightly raised as well. The front indicators came stuck out further and the front lid handle was new. In the back, the lights for the license plate were integrated into the now raised rear bumper, and the reverse light was lowered.
