1961 Porsche 356B Cabriolet / 154048 Chassis Information

1961 Porsche 356B
Cabriolet
Chassis #: 154048
Engine # 87401
Vin #: 40024
Sold for $140,250 at 2014 RM Auctions - Automobiles of Arizona.
In 1954, Max Hoffman brought 15 Special Roadsters to the United States. Between 1954 and 1958, there were 4,144 examples built. This particular example is a 356 B 1600 Super Cabriolet by Reutter, one of 3,367 Cabriolets built.

While the Speedsters were Spartan and minimalistic, the Cabriolets offered more practical and usable features, such as a real top and roll-up windows.

This car is finished in Aetna Blue, with a Light Grey leather and corduroy interior. The car was in regular use as late as 2003, before being placed in storage. The current owner purchased the car in 2010 from Robert Blair, who had inherited it from his father. At the time, it had 77,600 miles, which are believed to be original.

The car was given an extensive $50,000 body-off rotisserie restoration, which was completed in November of 2013.

The car was equipped from new with an exterior mirror, a Cabriolet cover, and Michelin tires. The interior is refinished in the original Light Grey leather with corduroy inserts, and it has the correct square-weave carpet. The car also has the correct date-coded wheels, a fitted top, a tool roll, and an owner's manual.
