Porsche is a brand with many lauded platforms; of which, many have etched their name in the annals of automotive culture through trials of blood, sweat, and determination. Despite its heavy-handed inventory, the German car manufacturer’s revered “356” stands out as one of its most timeless — a notion that’s been further reinforced by this immaculate Canberra-based build.
The 1962 Porsche 356B Notchback that you see here is a true collector’s item; as such, it boasts an extensive list of modern upgrades that have been carefully requisitioned, and implemented, by Australia’s Real Steel Coach Builders. It features an all-original four-cylinder 1600L Petrol Porsche engine, which has been rebuilt to match its factory designation, as well as an impeccably-realized tan leather interior, dash, and wheel. Visually, the vehicle is subjectively unmatched, thanks to its no-expenses-spared exterior restoration and Aquamarine color palette; a fabled hue that was popularized by the era’s most prolific Porsches. Since its rebuild, the car has only accrued 3,100 miles on its odometer, and now, it’s been listed for sale by a private owner for $319,000.
