1964 Porsche 356 SC Coupe
The final expression of Porsche’s original model series, the 356 C, debuted for sale in July 1963. While differing little at first glance from the prior 356 B, the new 356 C was carefully refined and improved in many ways. Mechanically, the 356 C marked a forward leap with standard four-wheel disc brakes, new 15 and “quoted” ventilated wheels, suspension tweaks yielding better handling, and deeper, bucket-style reclining seats from Porsche’s recently acquired coachbuilding subsidiary, Reutter.
Engine development was led by Hans Mezger with Porsche’s pushrod-engine lineup reorganized and improved. Among these changes, the 95 hp 1600 SC unit replaced the prior Super 90 as the most powerful pushrod-type engine in Porsche’s road cars, second only to the race-oriented Carrera 2 four cam engines. In both cases, driveability and performance improved, with the 1600 SC engine capable of propelling the 356 C to speeds of 120 mph. Matched to an all-synchromesh four-speed gearbox, communicative suspension, and sharp steering response, the 356 SC provided a thrilling driving experience.
Our beautiful Porsche 356 SC is well presented, an older US restoration and lately serviced at our facilities. Optional from the factory includes a pair of driving light covers, a Radio, two speakers, antenna, horn-ring, and Coconut floor mats. The car sits now on a set of new Dunlop 185/60 R15 88H SPT tires.
