The Porsche 356 series would reach yet another milestone during the 1962 production year, as it released the newest T-6 body type. The 356B was first introduced in 1960 with the T-5 body that boasted bigger and higher bumpers, large chrome guards, and a revised hood that had a smooth curvature rather than a “wave” pattern. When the T-6 would be released, twin engine-lid grilles, an external fuel filler in the right of the fender, and a larger rear window in the Coupe would be some of the most noticeable changes. The T-6 also received four-wheel disc brakes – a major advancement for the time. If you’re the owner of a 1962 Porsche 356B, your classic Porsche is one of approximately 7,767 units produced during this particular manufacturing year. Of these units, approximately 6,021 were Coupe models and 1,566 were Cabriolets. Based on these production numbers, the Coupes are perhaps easier to find in the market, while the Cabriolets continue to be sought-after.


1962 Porsche 356B Seller’s Guide

Two of the first items that educated buyers will ask you for when selling your 1962 Porsche 356B are the engine and chassis numbers. These numbers can be used to ensure that your model is indeed an original and can also verify items like ownership or restoration history. You can be prepared for this question by having a copy of both. You can typically find the chassis number stamped in the trunk in front of the tank, while the engine number is located on the base of the generator stand. While it is often difficult to have complete maintenance records for a car of this age, having any documentation available to potential buyers is also important in providing buyers with comfort. If you need help with these steps, the Alex Manos team of classic car professionals would be happy to help you locate and explore your chassis and engine numbers.
