Porsche 356 B (T5) Roadster by Drauz 1960

Porsche 356 B (T5) Roadster by Drauz 1960


119,713 miles.

This 356 B (T5) Roadster is a rare classic Porsche.

Sources suggest just 2,653 of the Roadster variants were built by Drauz coachworks between 1959 and 1961 (for model years 1960 to 1962). Not to be confused with the Reutter bodied Cabriolets from the same period, the Roadster was a direct descendant of the Speedster, via the Convertible D and had a sleeker silhouette with a lower windscreen (removeable), one piece windows, Speedster style dash, no rear seats and a single layer hood.

This US supplied 1960 example is ready to be used immediately, or some straightforward improvements would see it rise to the next level.

Brought from America to the Channel Islands by a German car collector in early 1990. Originally Heron grey, but now finished in period correct Ivory with a black hood and interior.  The bonnet catch and engine lid have chassis-matching stamps, plus correct Roadster doors and original detail fixtures and fittings. The engine is a Type 616/1 1,600cc, but from an earlier 356 A (T1).

Benefiting from recent investment totalling over £21,000, which includes refitting the interior, engine service, new clutch, rebuilt braking system and wheel bearings. New battery and electrics and 5 new tyres.

We are presenting this on behalf of a client for a direct customer-to-customer sale. Whilst this car is located in the UK, it is currently registered in the Jersey (Channel Islands).

Please note: the next owner will be responsible for any import taxes, duties and other payments due, depending on where they choose to register the vehicle.

If required, we have the expertise and equipment to carry out any improvements you may wish to make. From minor works through to complete restorations.
