The 356 is acknowledged as Porsche's first venture into production and was a lightweight and nimble rear-engined, rear-wheel-drive, two-door sporting car available in hardtop coupé and open configurations. Engineering and design innovations continued during the years of manufacture, contributing to its motorsports success and its popularity as a road car. The model was created by Ferdinand 'Ferry' Porsche (son of Dr.Ing. Ferdinand Porsche, founder of the company), based on an original design by Porsche employee Erwin Komenda, and initially its mechanicals (including engine, suspension, and chassis) were derived from the basic Volkswagen Beetle, a product of his Father's fertile imagination. Porsche continued to develop and refine the 356 with a focus on performance, and by the late 1950s fewer parts were shared with its pedestrian cousin, and increasing success in competition and its availability worldwide resulted in the distinctive little car, in all its iterations, finding over 76,000 homes between 1948 and 1966. Today, the Porsche 356 is a highly regarded collector's car.

We are very proud to offer this special original right-hand drive Porsche 356B T6 1600 Super which was delivered through Scania-Vabis Porsche in Sweden and sold to its first owner, a Mr Walter Edestrand, in February 1962. At that time, and until September 1967, Sweden drove on the left-hand side of the road, and consequently, cars were right-hand drive. Finished in Signal Red with a red leatherette interior, the car was a late 356B designation T6 with coachwork by Reutter of Stuttgart.

After three years, in April 1965, when the car had covered 50,095 km, it was purchased by a Mr Lars Linderholm who was to cherish this 356B for the next 49 years and cover a further 30,000 km. It’s a testament to the first two owners in Sweden that the car remains in the original unrestored condition it does to this day, retaining its original body panels and confirmed by the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, its original engine and transmission. The history file contains the original service booklets in the original Porsche folder and even the original Reutter key fob remains with the car. It is understood that the car was only used between April and October and stored in a heated underground garage during winter months, helping preserve it and the lovely patina evident today. The bodywork, panel gaps and panel fit are beautiful, the door closes with the lightest of touches, and the paintwork, interior and dashboard retain a gentle patina, lightly used and well cared for, an old family friend.

In 2014, the car was imported to the UK and registered with the DVLA being allocated registration ‘832 UYH’ and sold to a collector. Recent maintenance work by a marque specialist includes a new clutch, gearbox seals and a top-end engine rebuild. The car is now showing 90,440km on the odometer which we believe to be correct given its history and condition.

Rarely do cars of this calibre in such beautiful unrestored condition come to market and, being an original right-hand drive 356B 1600 Super, this is an exquisite opportunity to own an exceptional car.

A remarkable car in unrestored condition - an original Swedish right-hand drive delivered 356B
