  • The Porsche 356 B was unveiled at the 1959 Frankfurt Auto Show. It brought a facelift to the increasingly sophisticated and highly desirable German sports car. To help meet the requirements of its most important export market, the United States, Porsche designers changed the car’s profile by raising its front wings and headlamps. New bumpers with large vertical guards that were mounted several inches higher at both ends provided better parking protection.

    During the evolution of the 356 B, the body nomenclature changed in 1962 from T5 to T6; the newer design brought a larger front boot lid with a squared-off front edge, a larger chromed bonnet handle, two engine-cooling grilles, a redesigned instrument panel with improved instrument positions, a better inside rear-view mirror, a redesigned fuel tank that provided increased luggage space, and a relocation of the fuel filler to the top of the right front wing, eliminating the need to open the front lid for access to the fuel tank cap. The 356 B was offered in coupe, roadster, and cabriolet styles. The cabriolets were quite luxurious vehicles, as they were equipped with standard leather seats and a thickly padded folding top.

    The magnificent 356 B Cabriolet featured here is finished in gorgeous Signal Red over Tan leather interior and Tan folding convertible top. This incredible 356 was restored with no expense spared by world-renowned Pebble Beach winning restorer Berlinetta Motorcars and is now ready to be added to any premier collection. Fitted with many unique options including rare dashboard thermometer, speedster rearview mirror, short-throw shifter as well as front disc brakes, and stainless-steel muffler and exhaust. We are proud to offer this stunning example to the most sophisticated collector investor or enthusiast who understands and appreciates a Pebble Beach winning restoration. 

    Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years, with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013, 16% in 2014, and 17% in 2015 while posting gains of 467% over the last 10 years.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
