1964 Porsche 356C Coupe up for auction

Each Porsche is special in its own way, but when one of the examples of the Stuttgart-based company’s first production car appears on the market, the attention is greater. Such is the case with this 1964 Porsche 356C coupe up for auction.

This Porsche 356C is powered by a Type 616/15 air-cooled 1.6-liter Type 616/15 flat-four engine. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission. It sits on chrome 15” wheels wrapped in 165-series Vredestein Sprint Classic tires.

The car is finished in black and is in pretty good condition. It is equipped with body-color bumpers with impact strips and chrome overriders as well as protective rocker-panel moldings, a driver’s side mirror, a retractable antenna, pop-out rear windows, twin engine grilles, gold badging, Bilstein shocks, dual Zenith carburetors, and brake discs at all four corners. In 2017, dent repairs were performed and the windshield and rear glass were replaced. In 2021, the engine was overhauled, which included rebuilding the carburetor and replacing the front pulley seal, distributor cap and rotor, generator stand gasket, and sending unit gasket.

Inside, the seats are covered in black leather, which also covers the door panels and the dashboard. In front of the driver is a three-spoke wood-rimmed steering wheel behind which is a five-digit odometer showing 48,653 miles (total mileage is unknown). Additional equipment includes black carpets, a heater, a glove box, a VDO clock, a Blaupunkt AM/FM/SW push-button radio, rear luggage straps, sun visors, door pockets, and Coco floor mats.

The car comes with a tool kit, a Kardex report, service records, and a clean Oregon title.

The auction ends on October 20 and the highest bid at the time of writing is $46,000 USD.
