This 356SC was completed at Porsche's Zuffenhausen Works as a 1965
model-year SC Cabriolet. This car, chassis no. 162151, was the 14th
to last 356 to roll off the production line and was essentially
manufactured alongside the all-new 911 at the time. The car was
finished as it appears today - in Irish Green, with Light Brown
Leatherette, and is believed to have been delivered to the European
market from new. The car was brought to the US in 1972 and
purchased by the previous owner who commissioned mechanical and
cosmetic attention as needed. In the early 1990s, the original
engine was removed, and a period-correct 356SC unit (number 821844)
was rebuilt at fitted, by noted 356 engine builder 'Maestro'. The
car was later professionally repainted, in the original Irish Green
The car presents beautifully throughout, with great shine to the
exterior paint and good fit and finish. The seats appear original
and the new owner may want to replace the leatherette, though we
prefer them as is. Fog lights are fitted in the front, and a newer
black convertible top is fitted with a matching top boot available
to cover it when down. The car runs on slightly wider wheels,
giving it better road holding, though the original wheels and
replacement chrome hubcaps come with the car, along with the
original tool kit & jack, original steering wheel, Porsche issued
Certificate of Authenticity and original owner's manuals, and a
large box of maintenance and restoration documents.
