In a sea of homogeneous Porsches this 356B really stands out. This is a very original matching numbers 1960 Porsche 356 Coupe, with matching original engine , that was last on the road in 1975. Painted rare Fjord Green, Porsche color code 705. Interior is light gray for a striking and unexpected color combo. All of this is confirmed on the Kardex.
The originality of this car is very unusual, please see the list below for some of the high points:
- Matching numbers engine
- Matching transmission
- Unkinked hood
- Both doors
- Engine lid
- Date matched wheels
- Date matched hub caps
- Original tool kit

While the car was parked in 1975, it did not live a pampered life. In 1961, Mr. Cushing traded his 1955 Speedster with a neighbor for this nearly new green 356 coupe, which made for a much better commuter car from his Long Island home to his job in New York City. It was used in all types of weather, as evidenced by the studded snow tires still mounted on the rear wheels! The car was pulled out of a barn and here it sits. There is lots of rust repair to be done on this car, please see the photos for some examples of this. The interior will need restoration, of course, but at least it's not missing. I have no information on the engine and it hasn't been tested. If there was ever a car worthy of a proper restoration, it's an original 356 like this with known history and matched dates flying at you from every angle. Porsche owners search for years for the parts to create matching dates for their restorations, here it is just the way it left the factory.
