Overview

1961 Porsche 356 B

Price: Contact Seller for Price
1961 Porsche 356B Super 90 GT VIN: 115377 One of 9 Super 90 GTs produced in 1961, one of 14 total examples built Matching numbers engine and transmission Has original matching lightweight body panels, original GT parts from factory Award-winning nut-and-bolt restoration by 356 specialists Willhoit Auto Restoration Has copy of Kardex, and Porsche Certificate of Authenticity Best in Show at the 2015 Dana Point Concours, 1st in class at Concours on the Avenue Close to 40+ years spent with one owner Porsche has been known to be one of the most flexible and agile car manufacturers for decades, making special variants of their beloved cars based on racing requirements and client requests. The 356s were no different, with many of Porsches clients in the early 60s wanting a lightweight, nimble and powerful variant that would be excellent at road racing. While the 4-cam examples of these variants are often the most widely known to drivers, collectors and connoisseurs alike, there remains one version of the 356 that even today remains almost a myth: the 356B Super90 GT. Super90 GTs were a rare form of 356, with only 14 ever produced with this example being one of 9 built in 1961. Originally intended to carry 1600cc 4-cam engines, Porsche was running low on their motorsports engine and ultimately decided to put their hot pushrod 1600cc Super90 engine into the car. They were so much in common, in fact, that you could easily drop a 4-cam Carrera engine into the car with minimal effort. All Super 90 GTs were built as Carrera GTs, and only as Porsche delivered them they were installed with the pushrod 1600cc engine. They even had the Carrera coil switches in the dash that went unused. The car had all of the same tricks as a Carrera GT, with lightweight aluminum body panels, light weight steel/alloy wheels, a factory roll bar, an 80-liter (21 gallon) fuel tank, heated windshield, plexiglass windows, and very minimal soundproofing and undercoating. The results paid off, with the 356B Super90 GT weighing in 200 pounds less than a standard coupe, and 150 pounds lighter than its 4-cam counterpart due to the lightweight pushrod engine used. These exceedingly rare 356s were basically Carrera GTs with Super90 engines, completed and delivered by the Porsche factory. This Super90 GT finished production at Porsche on April 6th, 1961. It was optioned in Silver Metallic over black leatherette and it was first sold by Competition Motors in Hollywood, California. Remaining hidden for years, the car was finally purchased by a family in the 1970s who owned the car for close to 40 years, stored and tucked away from the world. In the early 2010s, future owner Mike Tucci spoke to his friend during a game of tennis about a friend that wanted to sell his old Porsche. He said that it was a Super 90 GT so the Tucci did some research on the car and spoke to 356 expert, John Willhoit. Willhoit did some investigating and confirmed that the 356 was indeed a real, and extremely rare, Super 90 GT. Tucci was sold and purchased the 356, sending it to Willhoit Auto Restoration for a complete nut-and-bolt restoration to bring the GT back to its original delivery condition. Willhoit Auto Restoration was chosen to perform the careful restoration of his car due to their amazing track record of restorations and being experts on the Porsche 356 platform. One of the unique parts of the restoration was that the car contained almost all of its original period-correct GT parts. Matching engine and transmission, factory roll bar, alloy wheels, 80-liter fuel tank, gauges, and other special pieces were with the car, kept with the car during its time in storage. With the items cataloged, the Super 90 was disassembled down to the last bolt, all paint stripped down to reveal the factory sheet metal. When the car was stripped, it was revealed that the 356 had retained all of its matching original factory aluminum lightweight panels: hood, decklid, and b
