Faded royal: 1961 Porsche 356B T5 S Cabriolet


This 356 T5 (you recognize it from the pointed front bonnet and the absence of the external filler nozzle) was born with a very nice color, Royal Blue, now faded.



However, this specimen remained as mother Porsche did it, of course affected by the wounds of time that have left its scars here and there, but it remains an almost perfectly preserved specimen which, however, no longer has its original engine ( an S75). We also believe that the hucaps belong to a “normal” car, not to a “Super”.


On the other hand, although it is a car to be restored, it still has its original hardtop, which is a nice added value and partly copens the weight of the non-original engine, a S75 of 1959. The seller says the car is an original black plate from California, as evidenced by the original purchase receipt. Find it for sale at $89,500 here in Astoria, NY.
