Known History

Production of the Porsche 356 Speedster ceased in the middle of 1958 in favour of the Convertible D, which featured some welcoming features such as sliding windows and even an improved interior space once the soft top was rolled out. With the introduction of the 356B in 1960 and the bodywork made by Drauz, this version was to be called Roadster and was to be made available with three types of engines: 60, 70 (then 75) or 90hp.

This specific car left the factory on 21st October 1960, as stated on its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. It has a 75hp engine, a metallic grey bodywork combined with a red faux leather interior. Regarding the options, reclining seats and an ashtray were specified.

This example was delivered new in the United States and was uncovered in Texas by its current owner in 2017. As evidenced by a file of invoices, this roadster benefited from a full restoration in 1999. During the work, an engine with Super 90 specifications (90hp) was fitted. The car has since been used regularly until this summer and is proving to be a very pleasant drive. Although the bodywork is in sound condition and all openings well aligned, the current owner decided to entrust the car to Lady Art Car before the sale in order to correct small gravel chippings and minor defects. The sealing of the soft top has also been re-examined in this instance, along with a standard check of the ignition and carburetor. To conclude, this is one of the most desirable 356 versions to date, restored and serviced for the road.
