1,582 cc OHV air-cooled horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine, four-speed manual gearbox, four-wheel independent suspension with parallel trailing arms, transverse torsion bars, a front anti-roll bar, rear swing axles with transverse torsion bars, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 82.7 in.
Porsche's popular 356 Roadster was introduced for the 1960 model year as a replacement of the one-year-only Convertible D, the Speedster's more civilized successor. The new T-5 Roadster brought several marked changes in appearance: The front fenders and headlamps were raised, as were both the front and rear bumpers, to better deal with urban parking. New vertical bumper guards also helped in that respect. New brake-cooling intakes were added to the nose below the front bumper.
The new Roadster shared many of the comfort attributes of the Convertible D, including roll-up windows, comfortable seats, and a well-constructed convertible top with a tan-painted frame and wraparound plastic rear window. For those with competition in mind, the windshield could be removed, and roadsters, like the Speedster and Convertible D, soon became popular in amateur sports car racing around the world.
1960 Porsche 356B Super-90 Roadster
One 1528 Roadsters built by Drauz in 1960. This is an excellent running and driving 356 with a special ordered Super-90 engine (1600cc engine producing 90 horse power), smooth shifting 741 manual 4-speed transmission and four wheel drum braking system. Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche.
It needs cosmetic restoration but it is complete with original floor pans. Great panel fit & gaps with a very straight and solid body. Very nice turn-key driving 356 that has been well maintained and cared for over the past 50 years of ownership!
Roadsters of all years have become highly collectible, and hard to find. A great opportunity to build what you have always dreamed of.
