This 1963 Porsche 356B was sold new in California and remained in the state until being acquired by me in 2016. The matching-numbers flat-four engine is paired with the original 4-speed manual transaxle, and a big-bore kit was installed under previous ownership along with an aftermarket camshaft. The car has also been modified with a 12-volt electrical system, front disc brakes inside a cosmetic aluminum drum cover, a remote oil cooler. An October 2016 service included a detailed mechanical inspection and tune-up.
The car was repainted at some point in its factory Champagne Yellow (6205).
The 15'' steel wheels wear hubcaps with Porsche crests, as well as newer 185/70 Vredestein tires at each corner. Front disc brakes are hidden inside a cosmetic aluminum drum cover.
The interior was reupholstered in black and has been fitted with a retro-style radio featuring a USB port. A period Blaupunkt radio will accompany the sale.
The lighting and VDO gauges are operational. The odometer currently displays 78,939 miles, about 1,000 of which have been added under current ownership.
Results of leak down and compression tests conducted in October 2016 yielded the following results:
Compression
Cylinder #1 – 125 psi
Cylinder #2 – 130 psi
Cylinder #3 – 120 psi
Cylinder #4 – 130 psi
The Porsche Certificate of Authenticity confirms the engine, powertrain numbers, as well as the original color combination.
