This 1963 Porsche 356B coupe was built on January 31, 1963, before being delivered to the US via Hoffman Motor Car Company of New York. It is finished in silver over red and is powered by a replacement 1.6-liter inline-four paired with a four-speed manual transmission. Equipment includes painted bumpers, ventilated 15″ steel wheels with polished hubcaps, a driver-side mirror, pop-out rear windows, a Road Gear AM/FM stereo, a CB radio, manual windows, and laps belts. The car was acquired by the seller in September 2021. This 356B is offered in Connecticut with the manufacturer’s literature, a copy of the Kardex, a map booklet, and New Hampshire registration.
The car was delivered from the factory in Slate Gray and was repainted in silver during previous ownership. Exterior details include painted bumpers with chrome overriders, a driver-side mirror, pop-out rear windows, twin engine grilles, grille badges, and a center dual exhaust outlet. The seller states that the floor pan has been repaired. The lower door panels and underside of the front bumper are damaged, and there is rust on the bottom of the doors. Other imperfections are shown up-close in the gallery.
Polished 15″ steel wheels wear Porsche-branded hub caps and 165mm wide Firestone tires that were reportedly installed during current ownership. Braking is handled by four-wheel drums.
The front and rear seats are upholstered in red vinyl and are joined by a matching dash pad and door panels. Interior details include a Road Gear AM/FM stereo, an analog clock, a CB radio, manual windows, and lap belts.
The three-spoke steering wheel frames a 6k-rpm tachometer, a 120-mph speedometer, and a combination gauge for fuel level and oil temperature. The five-digit odometer indicates 44k miles, approximately 150 of which have been added by the seller. Total mileage is unknown.
The 1.6-liter flat-four was reportedly replaced during previous ownership and is equipped with dual carburetors.
Power is routed to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transaxle. Rust is visible on the underside, and additional photos are included in the gallery.
A copy of the Kardex displays a build date of January 31, 1963, and lists the factory colors, equipment, and powertrain numbers.
The Ohio title from prior ownership shows an “Exceeds Mechanical Limits” mileage notation. The car does not have a title, as it is registered in a state that does not issue titles for a vehicle of its age. It is being sold on its registration.
