The Model: Ferry Porsche conceived the 356 with the idea that a lightweight car with enough power would deliver superior performance and driving experience. A class win at LeMans and a reputation for performance and quality ensured that the 356 was a success. The 356 underwent evolutionary changes to improve usability, power and handling that culminated in the outstanding 356C that offered four-­wheel disk brakes and the 75 bhp engine as standard equipment. The added power paired with brilliant handling and stopping power offered a brilliant and uniquely Porsche driving experience.

The Car: This car was purchased in 1969 from Glendale, California by the current owner with 55,000 miles. The new owner enjoyed the car for another 45,000 before subjecting it to a complete nut and bolt restoration right down to the proper lead loading bodywork by specialists, Jones Autowerks. Meticulously stored and maintained ever since, this 356C is in absolute top driver condition. The Porsche Certificate of authenticity confirms this car contains its original engine and transmission as well as the optional seat belts, luggage rack, antenna, floor mats and fog lights. The original color slate paintwork and red interior present beautifully. The owner has maintained an extensive history file documenting work completed. This is a rare and outstanding opportunity to collect such a fine 356C with documented history.
