This 1963 Porsche 356B 1600S Coupe was built on May 24, 1963, and initially delivered to Atlas Motors of San Francisco, California, via Porsche Cars Pacific. The car is said to have been acquired by the current owner approximately 8 years ago, and it is finished in white over brown vinyl upholstery. Power is provided by a 1.6-liter flat-four paired with a four-speed manual transaxle, and additional equipment includes 15? steel wheels, a left mirror, twin decklid grilles, and an aftermarket exhaust system. Service completed in preparation for the sale involved replacing the wheel cylinders and brake shoes as well as performing a brake fluid flush and an oil change. This 356B 1600S is offered on dealer consignment in California as part of the Mohr Imports UpShift Collection with a tool roll, a driver’s manual, a window sticker, a Porsche Certificate, and a clean Texas title.

Delivered from the factory in Light Ivory (6204), the Karmann-built bodywork was repainted under previous ownership. Exterior details include body-colored bumpers with chrome guards as well as a left mirror, a passenger-side fender-mounted Karmann badge, rocker trim, twin decklid grilles, and a single exhaust outlet.

Silver-finished 15? steel wheels wear chrome hubcaps and are mounted with 165/80 Classic Radial LL800 tires, while a matching spare is stored in the trunk compartment. Stopping power is provided by four-wheel finned drum brakes. Work completed in December 2023 involved replacing the wheel cylinders and brake shoes.

The cabin houses a pair of bucket seats trimmed in brown leatherette complemented by color-coordinated rear jump seats and door panels. The ceiling wears a perforated white headliner, while the beige squareweave carpets are covered with black rubber floor linings. Lap belts are equipped, and the analog clock along with the push-button radio are inoperative. Tears are noted on the passenger seat upholstery and dash pad.

The three-spoke steering wheel features a Porsche crest horn button and frames VDO green-letter instrumentation including a central 6k-rpm tachometer, a 120-mph speedometer, and a combination gauge. The five-digit odometer shows 25k miles, approximately 3k of which were added under current ownership. Total mileage is unknown.
