The Porsche nameplate has long been synonymous with continuous refinement. This began with their original sports coupe, the 356, which advanced from the “Pre-A” era, through the 356 A, 356 B and, finally, the 356 C. With each year, continual enhancements were introduced. For the 356 B, as presented here, upgrades ranged from the introduction of the Karmann-built hardtop in 1961 to the T-6 body style in 1962. Most notably, the ability to select the Super trim level offered 15 additional hp.
THIS 356 SUPER 90
We are pleased to present this exceptional 1963 Porsche 356 "Super 90" finished in the ultra-rare combination of Heron Grey over Red leatherette. Having recently undergone a high-quality nut and bolt restoration with no expenses spared, this spectacular 1963 example features a fully rebuilt 1.6L engine. Barely driven since the completion of the restoration, this 356 is now being offered for sale in an impeccable like-new state.
It was acquired by the current owner in 2012 in the Netherlands. The car was in a driving condition but needed some attention on body, mechanics and interior. After going through an extensive nut&bolt restoration, this 356 has been refinished in its rare color of Heron Grey according to the chassis and color tag. Close to 500 detailed images are available of this work. The cabin has been freshly upholstered in beautiful red leatherette. During the restoration, all interior components were either replaced or restored to as-new standards.
Power comes from an air-cooled 1.6L engine which was recently rebuilt. The engine is a replacement unit from 1961, a 1600 S delivering 75hp. Having driven barely any kilometres since completing the restoration, this 356 Super 90 is being offered in fantastic condition throughout.
The car comes with a USB stick detailing the extensive rotisserie restoration, old Dutch records, and the current Belgian registration document. Very few cars are restored to such a high standard, and this example is presented in a rare and probably one of the most striking colour combinations. Masterfully restored and finished in a rarely-seen color combination, this 356 Super 90 represents a truly incredible opportunity for a discerning Porsche enthusiast and is ideally suited for any collection.
