In September of 1959, Porsche released the new Type 356 B that delivered a revised T5 body and offered a significant number of technical and styling refinements over the outgoing Type 356 A.
The 356 B, produced from 1960 through 1963, represents the mid-point for Porsche's design progression.
The B added safety features demanded by the growing U.S market including all new sheet metal with raised front and rear bumpers and revised over-riders. The headlamps were raised, a larger hood handle added, and front vent windows appeared in the doors.
Mechanically, the transmission and drum brakes were upgraded as well. A new deep-dish steering wheel and column refreshed and refined the interior, along with deeper rear seats.
Available here is an early Australian delivered Porsche 356 B, sold new by Hamiltons of Melbourne in January of 1960.
