Between 1948 and 1965, Porsche offered its first production car, the 356, which was produced in four revisions and the last, the 356C, hit the market in 1963. It was replaced by the now legendary Porsche 911. One example, the 1965 Porsche 356C is for sale.
The Porsche 356C is powered by a replacement 1.7L flat-four engine paired with a four-speed manual transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. It sits on chrome-finished 15″ steel wheels wrapped in 195/55 Dunlop Direzza DZ102 tires.
This Karmann-built coupe is finished in Slate Gray, and is in good condition. It is equipped with amber-lens Hella fog lights, a driver-side mirror, pop-out quarter windows, a twin-grille decklid, body-color bumpers with dual exhaust outlets that exit through the rear overriders, Bilstein shocks, and a four-wheel disc brakes.
Inside, the bucket seats are upholstered in red leather covering the dashboard, door panels and rear seats, with matching square-weave carpeting. In front of the driver is a three-spoke steering wheel and a five-digit odometer showing 46,182 miles. Additional equipment includes a Blaupunkt AM/FM radio, a cigar lighter, a locking glove box, and lap belts.
The car comes with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, service records, and a clean California title in the seller’s name.
