The 1964 Porsche 356C Sunroof Coupe which has undergone a complete restoration to highly correct factory specification will be offered at Auctions America’s California Sale on Friday, July 17, 2015. This 1964 Porsche 356SC is driven by a 1,582-cc, 107-hp (SAE), 95-hp (DIN) air-cooled horizontally-opposed four-cylinder engine that is paired with a four-speed manual transmission. It was delivered to California new and had been in the hands of the previous owner since 1976. This Porsche is a rare Sunroof Coupe, which is perhaps the ultimate specification and configuration for the prudent collector.
It is reported to have its original body panels, with solid floors and panel alignment, plus the bodywork is also conveyed to be “exceptional,” with very good fit and finish. The paintwork is of a high quality, in the original color, and the panels are extremely straight. The chrome is very good, and the lights and lamps are excellent. The wheels are date-code matching and are beautifully chromed. The engine is equally impressive, having been cosmetically refinished during the restoration. It is well-detailed, with the correct decals and small details, like the correct and original oil filter housing.
As well, this Porsche features a recently rebuilt stock transmission. The car is a pleasure to drive, as it has a wonderful coherent feel and excellent performance from all of its mechanical systems.
With Porsches, there is no argument about its comfort, quality and excellent performance. And one would look a long time before finding a sports or GT car that offers more pure driving enjoyment.
