1965 Porsche 356 SC Coupe - Vintage Race Car
Originally delivered 356SC Coupe finished in slate grey with a red
interior, includes all of the paperwork from the original build
which was done in the early 1980s by Ecurie Engineering, (owner
Mark Eskuche) based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The 356 was raced
several times during the early 80s and then was stored for a number
of years until it was purchased by the current owner.
The current owner purchased this well-sorted 356 race car in May of
2010. At that time, a new roll cage was installed, and some
mechanical issues were addressed to get the car updated and
race-ready. In 2011, 356 Enterprises (Vic Skirmants) performed the
following: complete engine rebuild, SCAT crank, Carillo rods, cam,
pistons, head, and valve work, transmission rebuild, suspension
work, and conversion to a 12-volt system. The total cost of the
rebuild to the current 356 race specs was $20,698. It was raced
from 2011 until 2017 on average 3 to 5 race weekends per year. In
2015 the car was sent to Ron Goodman's shop in Australia where he
did the most recent restoration. The car was finished in light grey
with dark grey stripe work. The most recent race prep was completed
in 2018 by Ecurie Engineering totaling $14,000 in receipts. As the
car was last raced in 2017, the engine rebuild is completely fresh.
356 Enterprises last went through the gearbox in 2016, so the car
only has a couple of race weekends on the gearbox
freshening/rebuild. Also includes: 8 gallon ATL fuel cell, electric
& mechanical fuel pump, auto power roll bar, external battery
disconnect switch, tow hooks front & rear, Schroth racing seat,
Momo Italy suede steering wheel, Aluminum inner door panels with
leather straps for the plexiglass windows, Halon fire extinguisher,
stock gauges, and Maximum Performance 8,000 RPM tachometer, VDO oil
pressure and oil temperature gauges, AIM Racing Software, drilled
door handles, and removable deck lid.
The owner raced this car at many historic tracks including: Road
America, Road Atlanta, Mid-Ohio, Watkins Glen as well as COTA,
scoring numerous podiums. The owner's last race weekend in the car
was at Mid-Ohio in June 2017. There he took second and third place
in the sprint races and won the endurance race. This is a highly
competitive and race-winning car.
This desirable vintage 356 race car is SVRA/HSR compliant and is
fully race-ready. Complete with documentation and paperwork from
1983-2018. Mechanically in superb condition with a great engine
with current dyno documentation.
