1960 356B Porsche
Restored by Ecurie Bowden to the new owners standard.
Great 356B to show and drive.
Super 90 engine built well, feels like a Super 100 to me ;)
Australian delivered and known history.
Owner loves her, but has run out of space, must sell!
More info' coming soon:
This beautiful "B" underwent a 'birthday' with Ecurie Bowden and is now a very tidy car indeed. It has only had limited use since 2013 and been maintained by the fanatical Spencer Harrison, at RRR in Melbourne.
The Silver pictures are of her now and we have quite a few pictures of her prior to our work. She had an older restoration prior to us, circa 1984, undertaken by the previous owners -the Kratzmanns- who where auto electricians from around Albion, in Brisbane QLD. They were quite skilled and obviously did some good work in restoring the car, as it was very straight, no rust, trim was and still is very good, and it steers really nicely. Not bad given it was done 27 years ago!! Its quite a rare thing for a 356 to have good documentation intact, as they seem to "evaporate" a bit...
It's not all good news though; the very strong Super 90 engine, is period correct, but not original to the car. She was originally a Rubin Rot car, but is now a stunning Silber Metalic.
Prior to Spencer's RRR workshop getting a hold of her, the engine & gearbox have always been reliable. The car used to be be looked after by Arthur Lewis (Was QLD's 356 Guru) and he couldn't fault it. Arthur maintained the car up to the time he retired. As a bonus, the car had the engine race prepared, when the previous owner restored it, so it's no slow coach! Arthur did the brakes and master cylinder on this 356B also.
She has user manuals and original 356B Porsche maintenance log book but is not original to this car if I recall correctly? It does come with a lot of documentation and receipts from the previous owners.
