Rare, Desirable Belgian Roadster - 1961 Porsche 356B

Porsche produces precision machines designed for power, speed, handling, and head-turning. Porsches appeal broadly, yet desirability varies for different Porsche models. What's the best Porsche?

Consider the especially desirable 1961 Porsche 356B. These beautiful open-top cars are known as the “Belgian Roadster.” Only 473 T-5 Roadsters were crafted in Brussels by the Belgian coachbuilding firm of D'Ieteren Freres. They're rare, they're good-looking, they're fun to drive, and they just might be the best Porsche.

Art & Speed is pleased to present this carefully-restored, single-grille, D'Ieteren T5-Roadster in red and ivory with a black cloth top. Numbers matching, with original engine and transmission, the car comes with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, detailed restoration records and receipts totaling more than $40,000. Also included, some additional information about the unique history of the 356B Belgian roadsters.

Call us at (901) 850-0507 because you know you deserve the best. Financing available.
