1963 PORSCHE 356B REUTTER CABRIOLET This is what everybody wants in a Porsche, an original California Car with original Black California license plates and only one owner since 1965. It’s pretty hard to improve on that history. This car has just come out of long term storage although according to the seller it was started on a very regular basis and driven a few miles at a time. When it came out of storage it was trucked to re-nouned Porsche Specialist Marc Bixen’s Red Line Services for a thorough service. Almost $6,000.00 later the car was finished and is ready to be used and enjoyed. Red Line changed all the brake hoses, wheel cylinders and the brake master cylinder and reservoir. The brakes and valves were adjusted and the carbs resealed. Fuel was drained from the tank and lines flushed and the same with done with brake fluid and lines. The car comes with its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity showing production was completed November 26, 1962. It also shows the car is still finished in its original colour combination. Optional equipment on the car included Ventilated Chrome Wheels, Exterior Mirror, Blaupunkt Berlin Radio, 2 Loud Speakers, Antenna, Hubcaps with Crest and Conti Tyres were fitted. The car still has the original outside mirrors and Blaupunkt radio. It also has a period correct Nardi Wood rim steering wheel. Missing is the spare wheel and original tool roll that somehow got misplaced over the years. Wheels are date coded showing 3 with 7/62 date and 1 with 10/62 which is in keeping with the production date of the car. The engine and transmission show the same numbers that appear on the Certificate of Authenticity. A little Porsche trivia, the license plate on Janis Joplin's 356 Cabriolet was VAN990, this car wears VAN930 which would indicate they were licensed probably on the same day at the same Department of Motor Vehicles office in California. This is not a restored car but one that is an original example although re-painted many years ago. A replacement convertible top has been fitted some time ago as well. The mileage indicated of 71,125 is believed to be a pretty accurate account. Pride of ownership is evident as it still shows really well. Finished in a special order colour, Porcelain White (#6220) with Black interior and Top.
