    I purchased this in 2009. It was restored in 1998, I put a new engine in three years ago. Upped to 85 HP. Runs beautifully. It's a fantastic driving car and I put about 3,000 miles on it every summer.

    That is a classic if I ever saw one! Beautiful! And the best part is that you actually enjoy it on the road!

    Outstanding! Love the 356, particularly the roadster. If I had the garage space...

    What a beauty. I've always loved the 356s. What's the difference between the A and B?

    The differences between the A and B were subtle but many. Most noticeably, the fenders and hood on the A's was more rounded and the taillights were round "beehive" on the A. There were improvements in the gearbox, suspension, electrical, etc. The engine remained the same - either the Normal at 60hp or Super at 75hp.

    Porsche was a small operation, working with a number of coach factories, resulting in a fascinating history of continuous change and improvements on a regular basis within a given model year.

    The C was the last of the 356's, identified by the twin grills over the engine. The later C's had 12 volts and disc brakes.
