A Favorite: ’63 Porsche 356 Karmann Coupe
In 1962, the Karmann company began to build Coupés along with Reutter. So when you here of a Karmann bodied Porsche it does not signal a coach-built car like let’s say, a Zagato-bodied Alfa Romeo. Karmann also built what is referred to as a Karmann Notchback that is very much like a Cabriolet with a permanently fixed hard top. Today’s featured 356B popped up on The Samba late Friday and it is in one of our favorite colors, Smryna Green. It was the subject of a bare metal respray on a long-term California body. The engine sounds like it was treated to a thorough rebuild by Ollie’s in Santa Ana. The suspension is controlled by Konis and the entire package is said to be one of the best around. The interior looks really well done and a perfect color. Hopefully all backed by a Certificate of Authenticity. From the sound of the work done, it might actually be true. The price at $57,000 is right where it should be for a #2 car and that sounds like the number this car should be based on the description. Of course, only an in person inspection will tell the true story. Click here to contact the seller.
