The 1961 Porsche 356B Cabriolet, like other soft-top versions of the 356 series, continues to be a sought-after model among Porsche collectors and enthusiasts alike. The 1961 model-year was the last of the 356’s to use the T-5 body type prior to the 1962 change to the T-6, adding additional interest to the model. When selling your 356B Cabriolet, you may often find that buyers are uneducated regarding the differences between the Cabriolet and the soft-top Roadster that was also offered during this time. The 356B Cabriolet is basically the soft-top version of the corresponding Coupe model, while the Roadster is identified by its shorter, removable windshield that is typically trimmed in metal or chrome rather than body-color steel. Approximately 1,609 units of the 1961 Porsche 356B Cabriolet were manufactured, making it a low-production model. If you’re looking to sell your 1961 356B Cabriolet, the Alex Manos team would be delighted to learn more about your particular model.


1961 Porsche 356B Cabriolet Seller’s Guide

When selling a 1961 Porsche 356B Cabriolet, it is important to advertise an accurate condition of the classic. Cabriolet models in particular have a reputation for being in poorer condition than their Coupe counterparts, simply because of the exposure to the elements that have received over the years. While this is not always true, offering a fair assessment of the condition of your 356 will make the transaction as smooth as possible. Secondly, buyers will be concerned with rust, as these models had little to no rust protection during manufacturing. Any photographs and documentation you can provide regarding rust would be beneficial, particularly to buyers who cannot see the car in person prior to the sale. These are just a few of the Seller’s Tips that the Alex Manos team offers.
