Description

The final iteration of Porsche’s first production car, the 356 C was the most developed variant of the model that defined Porsche’s early years, both on the track and off. Incorporating the revisions from the T6 body introduced halfway through 356 B production, the C model was further differentiated by the addition of disc brakes, more powerful base engines, and minor interior revisions. The cars benefitted from the continuous development that occurred between the model’s 1948 introduction and the production of the C, which lasted just two model years and remain among the most desirable 356 variants.

This specific car was sold new in September 1963, finished in silver with black leather interior. In 1992, it was fully restored in Padova by its owner, who then sold it to a Porsche collector in central Italy. The current owner bought it in 1997 and has had much maintenance work performed since. More recently, the car received a new exhaust system, as well as wider wheels and is fitted with a Nardi wood-rimmed steering wheel. All the original parts are still available.
