This is an early 356B Super 90 Drauz Roadster, last owner for 40 years. The car has many original accessories such as complete correct toolkit, jack, owner’s manual with Roadster insert, service booklet and original Bill of Sale/Kardex-yes a true Kardex (not a Certificate Authenticity). Radio, speakers and antenna, as per Kardex, originally silver metallic with red leatherette, it was restored in 1986 by Kenneth Kolbe, noted 356 restorer in the Northeast and has been lovingly maintained and pampered, and now shows only 107,000 original miles on the chassis with full service receipts to back it up. Modifications to enhance driveability and longevity are unobtrusive. Dual circuit brakes have been fitted, with brass sleeved master and wheel cylinders. Headlight relays improve lighting performance, and original style Hella fog/driving lights have been fitted. Also included is a very rare, original accessory, (p. 179, #9618 in Merritt & Miller book), extremely rare fitted, full width rear cushion in its original horsehair and cover. It makes the back seat a flat floor for luggage or seating. Simply put a marvelous sports car that performs extremely well and all sorted out. This Super 90 drives, handles and brakes like new, with very nice lines, perfect gaps and wonderful arrangements. The engine was totally rebuilt using 1900cc barrels and pistons. The rubber mats are near perfect and original being covered most of their life. The transmission was rebuilt in 2006 which included replacing all the gear clusters, all the seals etc. The roadster is of course is one of the most sought after Porsche and being a Super 90, makes it even that more exciting, an investment grade vehicle. The car has just completed a comprehensive refreshing including removing the gas tank and gaskets, media blasting and painting the proper black along with many details to long to list. This car has everything a true enthusiast wants and an investor must have to keep the value increasing. The same owner for the past 40 years, with only 3 owners since new. This is a car has five (5) correct date stamped wheels matching number gas tank, latches on both lids, engine, transmission... a true investment grade vehicle that has great funability, while you see them to continue to rise in value. Call today, this quintessential classic is the right car in todays market. Call me today to discuss a viewing in my Topsfield, MA showroom. Christopher j LeSaffre 978.609.0358
