This 1965 Porsche 356SC cabriolet was built very late in the model
run, April 12, 1965 and was originally finished in Irish Green with
a Fawn Leather interior. Additional options included an antenna,
limited slip differential and Dunlop Tires. It was reportedly sold
new in the Seattle, Washington area and remained there until 2015
when it was sold to a well-known dealer of vintage Porsches located
in North Carolina. At the time of sale, this Porsches owner
delivered the car to a reputable shop in Bellevue, Washington where
it was fully inspected, serviced and had numerous items addressed.
The car was later sold to a Porsche collector in Fairbanks, Alaska
and it remained there in climate controlled storage until being
purchased by European Collectibles. During his ownership, about 700
miles were added to the odometer.
Once at European Collectibles, the Porsche was assessed for mechanical fitness and deemed to be in good working order. The Signal Red paintwork was done some years ago and shows very well with only minor imperfections. The grey leather interior and black convertible top are in very nice condition. The floors were original and solid, but needed refinishing, so they were stripped and recoated in house. The engine, which has very good compression, is original to the car as the factory numbers stamping matches the COA and Kardex. The transaxle is not original as this 356 was original delivered with a limited slip differential that was traded at some point for a smoother operating standard unit. New tires were just fitted to a completely matched set of original wheels (all five are dated 9/64). This is a great looking and nice driving 356SC cabriolet from the end of production and is complete with a tool kit, tonneau cover, matching spare tire jack, lug wrench and owner's manual. With prices for nearly perfect SC cabriolets exceeding $300,000 we think this driver is excellent value.
