- Very pretty 1964 Porsche 356c
- Original factory specified colours
- California delivered
- A wonderful example throughout
The Porsche 356c model arrived in 1963, sporting disc brakes all round (first seen on the 2-litre Carrera 2), a new ZF steering gear and a compensating spring at the rear to calm the swing axle rear suspension. Engine options were the 75bhp ‘C’ and the 95bhp ‘SC’, both 1,600cc, with the latter replacing the Super 90 model.
In excellent restored condition, this California example of the Porsche 356c 1600 Karmann Coupe was manufactured in May of 1964 and restored around 12 years ago with many upgrades. A new factory correct interior and full repaint in the original factory Ivory White, together with what appears to be a total mechanical overhaul. The original engine was replaced in the 1970’s by the first owner who lived in the San Francisco bay area.
Purchased in 2015 and imported to the UK, this Porsche 356c was then sold to a UK collector who has stored it in a climate-controlled garage since. With only minimal use, due to a large private and ever-changing collection, this excellent Porsche 356c comes to market having received a recent service and new battery to make it ready for immediate use.
This wonderful Porsche 356c is ideal for seasonal use, is in excellent condition and comes complete with the factory owner’s manual.
