1964 Porsche 356C Coupe is up for auction

In the mid-1960s, Porsche began the story of its first production sports car, the Porsche 356, which was the predecessor of the legendary 911. It was produced in several versions, the last of which was the 356C introduced for the 1964 model year. One example of this model, the 1964 Porsche 356C Coupe is up for auction.

The Porsche 356C Coupe is powered by an original 1.6-liter flat-four paired with a four-speed manual transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. It sits on silver-finished 15″ steel wheels with chrome hubcaps, wrapped in 165-series Vredestein Sprint Classic tires.

This car has only had one owner. It is finished in Light Ivory, has been properly maintained and is in excellent condition. It is equipped with a left mirror, a twin-grille engine cover, pop-out rear quarter windows, body-color bumpers with dual exhaust outlets exiting through the rear overriders, and four-wheel disc brakes.

Inside, the seats are upholstered in black that also covers the door panels and dashboard, while the headrests have been removed. In front of the driver is a three-spoke steering wheel behind which is a five-digit odometer showing 8,871 miles. Additional equipment includes an analog clock, a heater, a passenger-side grab handle, a radio block-off plate, and a locking glove compartment.

This 356C is now offered on dealer consignment in California with a copy of the Kardex report, a partial tool kit, service booklets, a driver’s manual, service records through 1977, and a clean Minnesota title.

The auction ends on July 13th and the current highest bid is $84,000 USD.
