Built on 07/26/1960, this California Black Plate car is totally rust free and still retains it’s original floor pan. It has been repainted by a well known facility in it’s original Aetna Blue and the interior has just been restored using top quality square weave carpets, original Coco mats, beautiful supple leather, new headliner, refinished original gauges, new rubber gaskets and trim and refinished chrome trim. EVERYTHING works including the 6 volt cigarette lighter and all interior and exterior lights. The headlamps are European style H4 and European tail lamps have also been fitted. The original steering wheel has just been refinished in wood by noted specialist Bruce Crawford. A period correct Blaupunkt AM/FM radio has been installed and is in working order.
The brakes were just completely rebuilt and it was fitted with a new lightened clutch. The list of all that was done during the restoration process is extensive. We’d be glad to provide all details to any serious buyer.
The car is an absolute pleasure to drive. No expense has been spared in making this one of the best driving, well sorted 356 B’s we have seen in many years.
The car comes with the original tools and holder, jack and books.
The C of A confirms the color combination and the options.
An update on this car. After an exhaustive search, the ORIGINAL matching numbers engine has been located in Northern California and is in the process of a high quality performance rebuild by Gaswerks Garage of Paramus NJ.
It is now a matching numbers car fitted with the engine and transmission it left the factory with.
