FFotW: 1963 356 T6 “Barn Find” in MKE. $30k

Posted: 12.18.14

And everyone said all the Porsche 356s have been found. Well our own Andy D. found this “true barn find” this morning, and is probably already sold as you’re reading about it. This one is located just outside Mikwaukee. Even comes with a plastic Hipster passenger. Oh wait, a 356 is too original & under the radar for a Hipster. Probably why the beard, skinny jeans and glasses are absent. 


The ad reads:

Very solid restoration candidate.
…BARN FIND! well, in my own barn for the past 20 years. This former california car has been in the family since the late 1970s. Several repaints, but kardex shows original color as silver. COA from Porsche will be provided if I can find it.
Has not been driven since 1984. Unsure of what it will take to get running but it ran when stored. Front brake work begun but not completed. All parts should be there. Odometer shows 60,xxx miles which I believe to be accurate.
All numbers match. Many many extra parts including old issues of 356 registry, harry pellow manuals, full service factory reference books, secrets of the inner circle… extra rims, baby moons and porsche crest caps,factory luggage rack, extra engine (that is the original #’s matching). Original engine case has cracked lifter housing but i was told this reparable by someone with proper skills.




Interior not original, but nice, that fake leatherette look. original 6v radio and electrical system. Floors good with a small patch here and there from the 1980s. battery box solid. front hood has typical, but minor crease that was repaired , rockers fair, jack points solid, headlight bukets good, crom good with some minor pitting. tire blow out damage to left rear qtr panel lower area.


I know this car and value and am willing to part with this dream for the right price, and to the right person. Still in the barn behind some seasonal stuff, but it can be moved out this winter if my price is met. More photos to serious inquiry only. LOCAL SALE ONLY.
No shipping, trades, tire kickers, or counter offers unless made in peson after inspecting the car. acceptable payment to be agreed upon in advance. If you know these cars, and are serious, you will put up with my hesitance to deal with the all too common CL tire kickers.
