1962 Porsche 356B Super 90 Karmann Notchback Hardtop T6

Gaswerks Garage is pleased to present our 1962 Porsche 356B Super 90 Karmann Notchback Hardtop T6. The notchbacks actually started out from the factory as cabriolets. The first built 1961 Karmann notchback T5’s were Reutter cabriolets that had hard tops welded on permanently. These were the very first Porsche’s built by Karmann, but were not badged on the right side fender until the T6 models. The unique “Karmann hardtop” or “notchback” 356 B model was produced in 1961 and 1962. The 1961 production run was essentially a cabriolet body with the optional steel cabriolet hardtop welded in place. The 1962 line (T6 production) was a very different design in that the new T6 notchback coupé body did not start life as a cabriolet, but with its own production design—In essence, part cabriolet rear end design, part T6 coupe windshield frame, unique hard top. Both years of these unique cars have taken the name “Karmann Notchback”. Of this series only 55 cars are still believed to exist. We are proud to offer this excellent condition very rare and highly collectible Porsche. Per its certificate of authenticity, this car was completed on October 31, 1961 and is finished in its original colors of Ivory # 6204 with Black Leatherette interior. This Super 90 Karmann Notchback is one of the rarer and most collectible of the 356 model cars, being just one of 687 cars produced in its only year of production.

1960 Porsche 356 “Super 90” Callaghan Roadster

The “Type 356” was the first sports car to bear the Porsche name on it. Ferry Porsche designed and produced Project 356 to be a lightweight car with an engine that produced enough horsepower to be a fun car to drive. The 356A (c.1955) started existence with a 1.3-liter engine and 50 horsepower. Throughout its first decade of production until 1965, the 356 came with a variety of engines up to 2.0-liter and in race versions the coveted 4-cam engines which Porsche felt should not be sold to the public due to their complexity. The 356 for the most part had four distinct build variations the Pre-356A (1948-1955), 356A (1955-1959), 356B (1959-1963) and finally the 356C (1963-1965). The 356 build variants included a coupe, cabriolet, notchback and speedster, all of which had variants within each model from mild to wild.

Our 1960 Porsche 356 Roadster Chassis #88716 was built by long time Porsche enthusiast and racer Peter Callaghan. Callaghan had a long history of racing Porsche cars in the 1960’s and 70’s from 356 and 914 E-Production to 911 B-Production cars. According to the CoA the car was originally Ruby Red (6002) with light grey leatherette, but as with all of Callaghan’s Red Dog race cars it was quickly painted dark blue. Chassis #88716 was raced in the SCCA E Production class at great venues like Lime Rock Park, Bryar National, Pocono, Thompson, Bridge Hampton, Nelson Ledges, Summit Point and Road Atlanta. Callahan set this car up to be his after the race car to have around the race tracks. This car has a high performance flat 4 cylinder Porsche air cooled engine, a 4 speed manual gearbox, roll hoop and Penske Racing Shocks. Chassis #88716 also has a very unique transmission configuration of 1st 3.09:1, 2nd 1.93, 3rd 1.35, and 4th 1.04. This gearbox configuration was only in Porsche 356 GS/GT cars, an interesting choice by Callaghan. The Roadster lives up to its name providing a whole lot of open air fun, quick acceleration and extremely racecar like handling. The Chassis # states this car is a Roadster built in 1960. This 356 provides the visceral drive we all crave from grassroots motorsports based cars.
