Custom-built for Speedsters of North America in 2021, this 356 replica features a red quilted interior along with a recently installed dual-carbureted 1835cc Volkswagen engine. It was acquired by the seller from its previous owner who oversaw the build in 2022 and is now being offered for auction out of California.
The fiberglass bodywork is finished in silver and includes fender-mounted bullet mirrors, a convertible canvas top, a half-moon canvas cover, a twin-grille decklid, 1600 Super badging, and 15" chrome wheels with Royal Black 185/60R15 tires from April 2021. Noted imperfections include a minor scuff on the front bumper, knicks on the driver's side front fender, some small blemishes, and paint pitting in the right-side rear of the car. Additional images are provided in the gallery.
The cabin is lined with red vinyl upholstery including new quilted seats, black carpeting with red accent piping, a wood steering wheel with a Porsche-crested horn button, and vintage-style instrumentation.
The rear wheels are driven through a 4-speed manual gearbox paired with a dual-carbureted 1835cc Volkswagen engine that was recently built and installed by Paradise Motorsports of San Marcos, CA. A new starter and generator have been installed as well. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 4-speed manual gearbox.
This sale will include some maintenance records and the clean Arizona title for a 1960 Porsche SPCON.
The seller wants you to know: “Thank you for sharing the passion and excitement! I cherish this opportunity to offer this 1960 Porsche 356B. I acquired the vehicle from a good friend of mine who had the build estimated in 2021, but unfortunately due to health reasons was forced to sell it as he couldn't drive it anymore. I thought it would be a great vehicle to cruise up and down our San Diego coastlines however my 6 yr old is too young to share the joy with me and the car just sits. I want to pass on this beautiful vehicle some it can bring smiles and enjoyment to the next owner. The vehicle was built with a 1600cc single carburetor but after owning it I wanted something bigger and better. I recently had Paradise Motorsports in San Marcos, Ca install a new 1835cc Engine with Dual Carburetors along with performing its maintenance where they replaced the starter and generator. I will be providing uploads of those records. Enjoy and Good Luck to the Bidders!”
