The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.

Built in a long run of normal A and B models from 1948, Porsches perennial 356 made its final transformation with the Type 6 body in 1963.
Designated 356 C, it had a new ZF steering gear and a compensating spring at the rear to calm the swing axle suspension. Four-wheel disc brakes were also part of the revision, and a 12-volt electrical system became available. Two 1,600 cc engines were offered, the C version with 75 hp and the SC with higher compression and counterweighted crankshaft making 95 hp. Porsche popularity soared, and more than 10,000 cars for 1964 bested the companys total over its first decade. Excluding the rare and costly Carrera, the 1600 C and SC cabriolets were Porsches most exclusive road cars of the era, offering comfort, performance, and enjoyable handling.
The 356 C on offer here boasts a classic colour combination of White over black leather. Although little history is known, the Kardex on file shows that the 356 C was exported via Porsche Center in Burlingame, California. A report on file indicates that the Porsche was sold in 2008 from just its third recorded owner. Since 2008 the car has formed part of a large private collection.
As a 1965 model year, this Porsche 356 is an excellent representative of the end of a line of sports cars that would soon be replaced by the 911.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/lf19.
