From 1959 until 1962 Porsche produced the 356B with the addition of the term T5. The later B models were thereafter called T6. Porsche never really bothered with an explanation for the name change. Visually certain items on the cars did change, of which some important to collectors. Like that the T5 features a single roster in the bonnet, a non visible from the outside fuel filler cap, and a smaller rear windshield than her successor. From the optical standpoint the T5 is often considered 'the original' behind the many large changes made to the A model. Although the improvements made on the B model mainly concerned handling and drivability. This stunning exemplar is evidently a 356B-T5, built by Reutter in 1961 and assembled by Porsche in their factory. The car was constructed for a client of the Swedish Porsche Importer Scania-Vabis, yes correct the lorry company. The car has only left Sweden very recently. The Swedish climate may rank low on the amount of warm days, however, it is not in the slightest humid, which is good news for bodywork. It almost goes without saying that any fifty-year-old car would benefit from a restoration. This car was subject to a full restoration and has been completed recently over the course of twelve months. Complete with the car are numerous documents and files that confirm the car's original colour combination, original engine and the factory fitted sunroof. There is also an invoice with part specification from the engine rebuild present. The beautiful colouration of Schiefer Grau with burgundy leather make this 356 an eye-catching classic.
