VIN 218634

Four (4) owners, originally purchased new from Manhattan Auto Inc. in Bethesda Maryland on September 5, 1964 by USAF Captain Lawrence D. Smith. Smith was living in Ohio and soon moved moved to Colorado. Captain Smith enjoyed the car and kept meticulous records from day one. Every fuel stop, light bulb, oil change, etc was recorded in his logbook. On April 19, 1979 the Porsche was sold to Gary Wilson of Nederlands, Colorado who soon after moved to California. Gary kept all documents and the 356 was sold with 96,800 original mileage. The third owner was Michael Locke purchased May 24, 2014 and the fourth owner purchased November 21, 2016 until present.

Originally this 356 SC Coupe was delivered in Ruby Red - 6402 from the factory and at one point the Captain Smith painted it Togo Brown - 6411.
