This Porsche 356B Super Coupe may have left the factory in 1963, but its story doesn’t truly begin until 1991.

Spotted by a “well-known NorCal Porsche expert and restoration specialist” in 1990, the 356 was soon purchased and converted into a full-time racer only a year later. According to logbooks, the Porsche's racing career began in 1993 and continued well into 2019–more than 25 years of racing, mainly in the Classic Sports Racing Group.

In 2018, the engine was replaced with a fully built racing powerplant from Shasta Designs, composed of Carillo rods, a NeuTek cam, MSD ignition, and Shasta FSR pistons and cylinders. The car is accompanied by a spares package that includes an extra gearbox, engine components and a number of miscellaneous parts.

This 1963 Porsche 356B Super Coupe is available from Fantasy Junction. Price available upon application.

That pretty much looks perfect. (True story: A million years ago I could have bought a red 356 for $14k, but at the time that was like a zillion bucks for an older car.)

I sold my red 1963 356B "Normal" 356 coupe (bought in 1986 from a friend in Marin County north of SF for $5,000) in Los Angeles in May of 1990 for $5,500 (my asking price in the ad). Classified ran in the LA Times on Friday, buyer showed up Saturday morning at 9:00 AM.

The Porsche was in very nice shape: perfect factory stock interior, no rust straight coachwork, very clean paint, well running, new tires. Only chronic issue I had was the large nut on the end of the fan kept coming loose. The buyer/new owner drove away in the car 20 min. later, after a quick around the block test drive and the peeling off bills from a wad he pulled from his pocket. 

Only later did it occur to me that perhaps I'd under-priced the car a little?
