Marking the third generation of the Porsche 356 series, the 1960 Porsche 356B would boast a number of appearance changes. Several of these changes can help distinguish a 356B from the 356A that it followed. Among those changes include the bumpers being raised approximately four inches in the front and rear, with a new shape and large, vertical bumper guards. During the release of the 356B, headlights were also raised, which made the fender line almost horizontal from the cowl to the headlight rim. Often called the two-grille 356, you’ll also notice that the 356B had a horn grille above the bumper and a brake-cooling grille below. Mechanically speaking, the 356B’s brake drums now offered radial fins instead of circumferential fins, and the transmission was changed to a Type 741. Another very small detail that is often overlooked was a change in the transmission mount. The first 3,000 models of the 356B would roll off the production line with a single mount, however they soon realized that this was not enough support and reverted back to a two-mount system. When selling your 1960 Porsche 356B – whether Coupe, Cabriolet or Roadster – these facts are great to share with potential buyers to help them understand the significance of your particular model.
