But I could find no record of that model, should it be 356?

I'm the one who suggested this show and provided the pics. I don't believe it's a 356 B Cabriolet. In one of the episodes the character "Scarecrow" (aka "Lee Stetson"), played by actor Bruce Boxleitner, is talking about the car and calls it a 1963 Porsche 350 Convertible. So--I'm going by what the show and character stated. The Porsche was later destroyed in one of the episodes, and Scarecrow then acquired a Silver 1984 Chevrolet Corvette--which he used for the remainder of the show.

This pic is from Season 1 Episode 7: "Service Above and Beyond." Boxleitner once stated that he was glad to get rid of the old Porsche because they could never keep it running long enough to hardly film a scene. He was overjoyed with the Corvette, though. LOL!

Actually, there's no Porsche 350 Convertible. Believing that 1963 is its correct year, it should be a 356 B Cabriolet ( with a T6 body ). That's the official name of a 1963 open model and although in the US some models are locally sold as convertible, the US 356 Registry calls it 356 Cabriolet.
The 356 B was introduced in 1960 ( with a T5 body ) and in 1962 it received the T6 body but was still called 356 B. Only in 1964 appeared the 356 C.

This may be so...I was only going by what the show had stated. The car was a convertible, as in many episodes the top was down, so maybe it is the 356 B Cabriolet. They may not have known what exact model the car was when filming, and just guessed?? Who knows.
