The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms.

Classic Car Overview

1962 Porsche 356B T6 Reutter Coupe VIN 117886 Engine No. KDP83360 75hp Completed October 5, 1961 No. 285 of 1,349 T6 Reutter Coupes produced from August 1961 July 1962 Single-family ownership for the past 45 years, finished in original color combination Ivory (6204) with Red leatherette interior. It has had a repainted and shows patina with original glass and brightwork. The Ivory dash is original with factory VDO instrumentation, a VDM steering wheel, and a Blaupunkt FM/AM radio. The red leatherette upholstery is in good condition with some wear and patina. The rear quarter and front vent window mechanisms are functional with good rubber seals. The 4.5 x 15 wheels are painted silver with chrome hubcaps and Sprint Classic Vredestein 165 15 tires. In the late 1970s, this 356B Coupe was purchased from Mr. Cantrell, who lived in San Francisco, California, and was sold to Ms. Schaeffer. By the 1980s Ms. Schaeffer had the 356 shipped to Massachusetts where it remained until 2022. During Ms. Schaeffers ownership, the 356 was serviced and maintained by European Performance Engineering in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. From 2016-2018 Kustom and Restoration Specialties serviced this 356. The following work was done including new spark plugs, spark plug wires, voltage regulator, distributor cap, shocks, axle boots, seals, and the fan shroud was removed and repainted. The braking system received new brake shoes, the drums were turned, and a new master cylinder was installed. The fuel lines and hoses were replaced with new clamps and hardware installed. European Collectibles recently went through the braking system and installed all new wheel cylinders, shoes, and brake lines along with a full engine tune. Mechanically, powered by a 1600cc flat-four KD factory replacement Super engine producing 75 horsepower paired to a manual 4-speed transmission (Type 741) with a four-wheel drum braking system. Complete with Certificate of Authenticity, spare tire, and 47 years of service history. An excellent opportunity to acquire a great 356 driver in excellent mechanical condition finished in the factory color combination. History In late 1959 significant styling and technical refinements gave rise to the 356B (a T5 body type). The mid-1962 356B model was changed to the T6 body type (twin engine lid grilles, an external fuel filler in the right front wing/fender, and a larger rear window in the coup). It is interesting to note that the Porsche factory didnt call attention to these quite visible changes with a different model designation. However, when the T6 got disc brakes, with no other visible alterations, they called it the model C, or the SC when it had the optional extra powerful engine.
