1964 Porsche 356C Coupe is for sale

Between 1964 and 1965, Porsche produced the third version of its first production car, the 356C. All versions of this model are in high demand, especially if they are in good condition. More than 16,000 examples of the 356C version left the production lines and one of them, the 1964 Porsche 356C Coupe is for sale.

This 356C is powered by a 1.6-liter 616/15 flat-four with a factory-rated 88 hp (66 kW) and 90 lb-ft (122 Nm) of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission that was overhauled and fitted with replacement synchro rings by Ameen Garage of Milwaukee, two years ago. In 2021, the fuel tank, fuel hoses and fuel level sending units were replaced, the carburetor was reconstructed and replacement heating hoses were installed. Last year, the valves were adjusted and the valve cover and drive belt seals were replaced, while the Optima battery was installed at the beginning of this year. It sits on a set of 15″ steel wheels wrapped in 165/80 Nankang tires.

The car is finished in Light Ivory and is in good condition. It is equipped with a windshield washer system, an underside front tow ring, twin engine grilles, body-color bumpers with bright guards, and disc brakes at each corner. In 2020, the body was repainted, the dents were repaired and the rust on the right rocker panel was repaired.

The interior of the car requires certain repairs, such as replacement of seat covers and floor mats. The seats and rear bench are upholstered in black leather, which covers the door panels and the upper part of the dash. In front of the driver is a three-spoke steering wheel and a five-digit odometer showing 42,492 miles (total mileage unknown). Additional equipment includes a cabin heater, a vintage-look cassette radio, and latch-and-link lap belts.

This 356C coupe is now offered in Pine Plains, New York with the owner’s manual, service records, a copy of the Kardex, and a clean California title in the seller’s name.

The auction ends on June 22 and the highest bid at the time of writing was USD $44,356.
