This Porsche 356B Super Cabriolet was built on December 14th of 1961. It was delivered new to Hoffman Motors in New York. The car wears black paint over a red leather interior with correct German square-weave carpets, Coco mats and headrests. The car was fitted with a period Blaupunkt radio, Hirschmann red-tip antenna, deluxe horn ring, chrome 5.5-inch wheels with crested hubcaps and a fresh set of radial tires.
The car was given a full professional restoration to show condition. The work was performed between 1990 and 1992. The car was stripped to bare metal and repainted using the correct German paint, the interior was completely redone and the air-cooled engine was rebuilt and fully detailed. A front disc brake conversion with dual master cylinders, using the bolt pattern that allows B wheels to be mounted, was installed to aid drivability.
This car was awarded a First in Class award at the Porsche Club of America Nationals in 1993 and a Peoples Choice Award at the National 356 Registry Concours that same year.
In 2010, this Porsche 356B Super Cabriolet was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company Auction held in Amelia Island, Florida. The car was expected to sell for $100,000 - $130,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $104,500, inclusive of buyer's premium.
