Constant refinement has always been the watchword at Porsche, but the new-for-1960 356B represented a marked leap forward in both mechanical and cosmetic features. Most notably, the traditional dropped nose and slanting headlight covers gave way to a raised front bumper and fenders and more upright headlights. The T5 body style also introduced such new details as opening front quarter windows, except on the Draus-bodied Roadster, so named to appeal to the fast-growing American market. Famed photojournalist Jesse Alexander described the 356B’s new T5-series body as “a rather drastic face lift that will come as a shock to Porsche owners all over the world,” but today it is symbolic of Porsche excellence. This superb Drauz-bodied 1960 Porsche 356B T5 Roadster is presented fresh from a three-year, no-expense-spared nut-and-bolt restoration completed in 2014. After being stripped to bare metal, the rust-free body was finished to high standards of fit and finish and expertly painted in Porsche Signal Red. In addition to all new seals, weather stripping and exterior trim, it features excellent glass, chrome and canvas top, Concours-standard detailing including the undercarriage and a crisp, clean Tan interior with leather-trimmed seats, door panels and dash pad, square weave carpets and fully functioning controls and instrumentation. The restoration included rebuilding a Super 90 1,600cc flat-4 engine with Solex P114 carburetors. The transmission was also rebuilt and a new clutch installed; the completed driveline now has approximately 400 miles of use. All steering linkage, brake system and suspension components have been restored or replaced and the electrical system upgraded to 12 volts. This marvelous collector-grade 356B Roadster is offered with the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.
