1965 Porsche 356 SC is up for auction

Recently, we have witnessed the discovery of more and more unique examples, as well as entire collections of old cars that are still in good condition. One of them is this 1965 Porsche 356 SC coupe that is being offered at auction.

Since its premiere in 1948, the Porsche 356 has been considered one of the most desirable collector cars. The production was started by the Austrian company Porsche Konstruktionen GesmbH and two years later the production was taken over by the German Dr. Ing. h. c. F. Porsche GmbH making it Porsche’s first production car until the appearance of the legendary 911.

This Porsche 356 SC is finished in Light Ivory (6404), is in good condition and underwent a refurbishment in 2016. The bodywork was repaired and rust was repaired, the floor panels, longitudinal members, and rocker panels were replaced. It is equipped with bumpers with chrome guards, dual side mirrors, twin engine-cover grilles, exhaust outlets integrated into the rear overriders, Sachs shock absorbers, and brake discs on all four wheels.

The Porsche 356 SC is powered by a rebuilt air-cooled 1.6L 616/16 flat-four engine. In 2015, the engine received JE forged pistons and 86mm Durabar cylinders for a displacement of 1720cc, the generator, carburetor, fuel pumps, distributor and electronic ignition were rebuilt, along with the installation of a wiring harness. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual gearbox. It is mounted on 15″ chrome wheels wrapped in Vredestein Sprint Classic tires.

Inside, the seats are upholstered in blue leather that also covers the door panels and dashboard. There is also a three-spoke steering wheel behind which there is a five-digit odometer showing 8,877 miles (total mileage is unknown).

The car comes with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, a driver’s manual, engine rebuild records, a spare set of wheels, and a clean South Carolina title in the current owner’s name.

The auction ends on April 20 and the current highest bid is $110,000 USD.
