This 1963 Porsche 356B Coupe was acquired by the current owner in 1993 and subsequently rebuilt as a tribute to the 356B 2000 GS/GT Carrera. It features custom carbon fiber body panels, Plexiglas windows, fixed-back bucket seats, a roll cage, dash-mounted stopwatches, upgraded disc brakes, and Bilstein shocks, along with a rebuilt engine including an LN Engineering Nickies piston/cylinder 88mm big bore kit, custom-ground cam, and a twin-plug ignition system. Accompanied by over 200 invoices detailing the no-expense-spared build, this custom 356B is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Florida.
After spending some years as a race car, this 356B was completely stripped and refinished in silver along with the installation of custom carbon fiber quarter panels, doors, a center-fill hood, and a rear decklid. The car features lightweight Plexiglas rear and side windows, a louvered rear valence, front hood straps, fog lights, headlamp grilles, and dual mirrors molded into the front fenders. It rides on silver 15” slotted wheels dressed in Vredestein Sprint Classic tires from 2009. The seller notes a small spot of paint blistering on the front fender near the hood and the tires show approximately 60% tread remaining. Detailed images are provided in the gallery.
The black vinyl interior has been outfitted with a full roll cage along with lightweight door panels and a pair of fixed-back bucket seats. Other accessories include a wood-rimmed three-spoke steering wheel, Carrera 2 GS/GT lap belts, lightweight door latches, a central oil pressure gauge, dash-mounted stopwatches, and dual rally odometers.
Power is derived from a Type 616/15 flat-four engine (#746339) which has been fitted with a custom 4-Cam style carbon fiber fan shroud. Upgrades include fortifications to the engine with an LN Engineering Nickies piston/cylinder 88mm big bore kit, custom-ground cam, and a twin-plug ignition system. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 4-speed manual Type 741/2C transmission. The car also features upgraded four-wheel disc brakes with stainless-steel lines as well as Bilstein shocks, a front fender-mounted oil cooler, and an adjustable front sway bar.
This sale will include a jack, a toolkit, a clean title, and an extensive collection of records.
The seller would like you to know: “This car was built to resemble the rare GS GT. At a fraction the cost of the real thing, it's much more fun to own and drive.”
