Classic Car Overview

This is arguably one of the nicest 1964 Porsche 356C Cabriolets in existence. Its fully sorted, numbers matching engine, fantastic provenance and great color combination. This is the one to buy! It has been painstakingly restored to better than new condition and has traveled the necessary 500 miles since to ensure a fully sorted and incredibly gorgeous motorcar. This Cabriolet is ready for the most competitive concours competition or touring. It is so stunning that Wayne Carini of Chasing Classic Cars walked up to this Cabriolet when it was shown at The Quail in 2014 and said, Man, thats a great color! We agree! SUMMARY OF THIS 356c -Retains Matching-Numbers Engine per Porsche Certificate of Authenticity -Accompanied by Books, Tools, Documentation, and COA -Magnificent attention to detail -1,582 CC Flat 4-Cylinder Engine -Twin Zenith Carburetors -75 BHP at 5,200 RPM -4-Speed Manual Transaxle -4-Wheel Disc Brakes -Fully Independent Suspension with Torsion Bars -Wheelbase: 82.7 -Engine Number 730861 (Matching) BACKGROUND OF THE 356 The brilliant 356 series, in all its forms, remains the cornerstone of Porsches heritage and continues to be highly prized by collectors and motoring enthusiasts. As the first car to bear the Porsche name, the landmark 356 was relentlessly developed, improved and perfected into an intense competitor, both on the racetrack and on the showroom floor. Light, quick and tremendously enjoyable to drive, the 356 gained a loyal following and an identity all its own, with an avant-garde flair enjoyed by few other automobiles. Evolution and sales success came quite quickly. Max Hoffman, Porsches U.S. importer extraordinaire, exposed the entire American market to the virtues of Porsche performance and engineering, establishing a devoted following for the 356 and all its permutations. At first glance, Porsches 356C, which debuted in mid-1963, differed little from the prior 356B and continued to use the T-6 body type introduced in 1962. The new 356C, however, was a major evolutionary step forward with its standard Porsche designed four-wheel disc brakes, higher-lift camshaft for the 1600 C engine, new flat-face hubcaps and deeper bucket seats courtesy of Porsches acquisition of Reutter, which owned a subsidiary that later became world-famous as Recaro (short for Reutter Carosserie). HISTORY OF THIS 356 This special, late-production 356C Cabriolet is a rust-free California car that retains all the original body and floor panels and represents the fulfillment of its current owners search for the right car. According to its Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche, this Cabriolet was produced on January 14, 1964 and finished in Sky Blue (Paint Code 6403) with red leather upholstery (Code A). It was ordered new with ventilated chrome wheels and Dunlap tires. This Cabriolet received a no-expense spared nut-and-bolt restoration to as-new condition by Dink Farmer, the noted Porsche restorer. According to Dink, it has had two prior owners and had been in Northern California (Lakeport) its entire life. It is presently owned by a significant collector of only the best Porsches. Used only sparingly for shows in its current ownership, this 356C also is offered complete with a remarkable selection of items including an original owners book, records, the as-new tool kit and jack, a top boot with its case. Handsomely presented, this late-production 356C/1600 C Cabriolet will be sure to deliver the outstanding driving experience for which this model is renowned.
