Great opportunity to purchase a great 356. The 356C is truly one of
the BEST 356s to drive.
The 356 was a lightweight and nimble-handling rear-engine
rear-wheel-drive 2-door sports car available in hardtop coupe and
open configurations. Engineering innovations continued during the
years of manufacture, contributing to its motorsport's success and
popularity. The last revision of the 356 was the 356C introduced in
September of 1963 for the 1964 model year. It featured disc brakes
all around with a 75-horsepower engine.
