During 1962, the Porsche 356B Coupe and Cabriolet would receive slight styling changes, which would become the T-6 body type. Twin engine-lid grilles, an external fuel filler in the right front fender and a larger rear window on the 356B Coupe would be the most noticeable changes. What is interesting is that Porsche did not call attention to these quite visible changes with a different model designation. However, when the T-6 received disc brakes in 1964, with no other visible alterations, they would change the designation to the 356C or the 356SC that had additional horsepower. If you’re thinking about purchasing a 1962 Porsche 356B Coupe, approximately 6,201 examples were manufactured, although it is unclear how many remain in existence today.

Coupe models throughout the 1960’s were the best sellers in the 356 lineup, often outselling their Cabriolet counterparts by more than double. Coupes like the 1962 Porsche 356B Coupe also have a reputation for being in better overall condition than the Cabriolet models thanks to its fixed steel roof protecting it from the elements all these years. For many enthusiasts and collectors, the 356B Coupe is an excellent option, as there is a greater availability of parts and components thanks to production numbers. When inspecting a 1962 Porsche 356B for purchase, always be sure to have a third-party inspection performed by a qualified mechanic, paying special attention to any areas of rust or corrosion.
