The Porsche 356 symbolizes the brand's lasting sports car legacy, establishing the groundwork for future models and remaining a cherished classic known for its design and driving experience. This 1962 Porsche 356B Coupe comes finished in black over matching leatherette upholstery and is said to have been initially delivered in California. Stored and serviced under the care of the classic car experts at Urban Motor Works of Atlanta, this example is now being offered for auction out of Georgia.

This 356B comes finished in Black. Details include chrome trim, pop-out rear quarter windows, twin rear grilles, teardrop taillights, and slotted 15” chrome wheels with Porsche center crests and new Michelin Defender tires. The seller notes some paint imperfections on the roof and left quarter panel, and additional images are provided in the gallery.

The cabin is appointed with black leatherette upholstery and has been fitted with new matching floor carpets. Equipment includes a black-finished 3-spoke steering wheel, VDO instrumentation with chrome bezels, roll-up windows, and a locking glovebox. The seller notes the speedometer is the only gauge that remains in proper working order.

A 1,600cc Volkswagen engine has been installed, sending power to the rear wheels through a 4-speed manual transmission. The seller adds that the motor was serviced, the carburetors were rebuilt and synchronized, the shifter mechanism was rebuilt, and the shift linkages were serviced. Newly installed items include a 12V charging system, a speedometer cable, brakes & brake lines, a shock, an electric fuel pump, and new wiring throughout.

This sale will include a clean title.

With a four-speed manual transmission and a reliable Volkswagen 1600cc engine, this Porsche delivers an authentic driving experience with the right amount of patina, that can be maintained on a budget.”

    @Urbanmotorworks doors open and close with ease. Shuts with the tip of your fingers

  • Urbanmotorworks (seller) 5 months, 2 weeksago

    @997_Turbo body a solid vehicle, has a sore spot left rear qtr.

  • Urbanmotorworks (seller) 5 months, 2 weeksago

    @996TT thanks for your interest. The tach is not adaptable to the VW motor. To make this vehicle more of a daily driver we wanted a 12v setup with an alternator. There would need Sri be some thought out in the tech setup. Speedo and trip are the current working gauges. Steering- all bushings, shocks and damper were replaced- solid stiff steering. Drum brakes are all new and braking really good.

  • Urbanmotorworks (seller) 5 months, 2 weeksago

    @Franz hello added more photos of rocket and jams. Floor pans are metal and are insulated on really good shape. No need to address. We addressed the front trunk floor pan. That was the only main area that needed replacing

    Are the doors sagging? Does the tachometer work? How are the steering and brakes? Are these your concerns? Ambitious undertaking.

  • 996TT (registered bidder) 5 months, 2 weeksago

    Greetings
    I’m interested thus the following questions:
    - Are the speedometer and tachometer working?
    - If not would the tach work with the VW engine?
    - How are the steering and brakes?
    - Are the doors sagging or do they open and shut properly without lifting?
    Thanks

  • Franz (registered bidder) 5 months, 2 weeksago

    Hello,
    please, would you mind to add some fotos from the rockers underneath and rocker corners on the doors and the wheelhouses?
    Is the floor inside done with GFK or is it solid metal?

    Thanks in advance,
    kind regards, Franz
