1961 356 B T5 Coupe Interior

The car is nice but does have some issues. Overall it is a good daily drive though. This is the T5 body type. The mid-1962 356 B model was changed to the T6 body type with twin engine lid grilles, an external fuel filler in the right front wing/fender and a larger rear window in the coupe.
