1964 Porsche 356 SC is for sale

Since its premiere in 1948, the Porsche 356 has been considered one of the most desirable collector cars. For the first two years, the car was produced by the Austrian company Porsche Konstruktionen GesmbH, and from 1950 the production was taken over by the German Dr. Ing. h. c. F. Porsche GmbH. It was Porsche’s first production car that was produced until 1965 when it was replaced by the legendary Porsche 911. It went through several revisions, the last of which was the 356 C model introduced for the 1964 model year. One such, a 1964 Porsche 356 SC coupe, was offered at auction.

The Porsche 356 SC is powered by an air-cooled 1.6L 616/16 flat-four (last run in the 1990s) with 2 Zenith 32 NDIX Carburetors, 107 hp (80 kW) and 91 lb-ft (123 Nm) of torque. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels via a 4-speed manual transmission. It is mounted on 15″ steel wheels wrapped in Michelin XZX tires.

The car was bought in the early 70s and used until the 90s. It is in a really bad condition, but that’s why it is ideal as a project. It is equipped with a driver-side mirror, a twin-grille engine cover, bright trim, twin exhaust outlets and four-wheel disc brakes. Also, the original Sky Blue has been replaced with Dark Blue.

Inside, the upholstery of the front seats is quite damaged, while the rest of the cabin is in not so bad condition. Additional equipment includes rubber floor mats, a wood shift knob, square weave carpeting, an analog dash clock, door pockets, and a Blaupunkt radio. The clock shows 46,133 miles (total mileage is unknown).

The car comes with service records, accessories, a driver’s manual, and a clean California title in the seller’s name. It is currently located in Corte Madera, California 94925, and will be an ideal project for someone.

The auction ends on March 13th and the current highest bid is $45,000 USD.
