Classic Car Overview

This is one of the most iconic cars ever produced, and this 1964 Porsche 356 C Cabriolet represents it all in the best ways. With a meticulous restoration, ideal color combo, and all the upgrades that came from the final generation of this legendary line this car captures the true essence of the original Porsche. When you want a 356, this really hits the top end of desirability. Its the final C series, which incorporates everything learned over the production run. This example was given a full restoration in 1997 and has been kept in award-worthy condition ever since. You see it in the deep shine of the Ruby Red paint that makes this convertible the perfect pairing for a sunny day. The reason why the 356 was able to be a true hallmark car is because it established Porsches reputation for fine engineering. They expected excellence from every piece of sheetmetal, and this example carries that feeling today. The panels have precision gaps; the doors close effortlessly; and the shapely hood has that ideal fit where the sunlight evenly reveals the front ends iconic curves. And as you look at all the details from the mirror-like wheel covers, to the way the exhaust tips run through the rear overriders this car proves its a collector-grade example. The tan convertible top gives this a truly timeless color combination, and its condition makes this cabriolet look premium even when its in place. But the reason for owning a car like this is to be open to the world. So youll love to see the same tan against the red exterior when you take the canvas roof down. You can tell more about the high-quality restoration investment by the supple leather on the seats, correct-style corduroy behind the fold-down rear seats, and classic coco mats up front. Getting a classic 356 correct means understanding the details, and you really see that from the drivers seat. The classic three-spoke sports steering wheel has an excellent grip. It gives you a clear view to the full luminescent gauge panel with the important tach front and center a tradition continued on Porsches today. The exterior-matching dash is simple and elegant with everything working from the VDO clock to the correct Blaupunkt optional AM/FM radio. The 356 C was the last of the original Porsches, and it was considered the best and the engine bay is a large reason why. The 1600cc motor had evolved well beyond the Porsche-engineered Volkswagen engine by the time of the C cars. In fact, they were well on their way to the 911. So this is one of the most desirable 1600 units for both power and refinement. Thats why its presented in a tidy and correct form right down to the correct decals so its ready to show off. But more than just look amazing, this motor fires up and idles with the kind of energy that you know an enthusiast maintained it correctly. The undercarriage photos reveal more about this cars meticulous restoration and care, and youll also spot fresher components that reaffirm a commitment to proper maintenance. This is the kind of classic the begs to be driven. So youll love the control of the four-speed manual transmission, grip of new modern Nexen tires, and the advantage of four-wheel disc brakes that was exclusive to the 356 C. The sale comes with the owners manual, POC service manual, and maintenance records. This is a well-restored and well-respected example of a true icon. So if you demand the best in classics, call today!
