Authenticity THE PORSCHE 356C Porsche's Type 356, introduced in
1948, is acknowledged to be one of the world's greatest sports
cars. Over a 15-year production run, the handsome and durable 356
evolved from a streamlined little aluminum-bodied coupe powered by
a VW-derived, 46hp 1100cc air-cooled flat four to a powerful
autobahn burner. By the time the 356B arrived in September 1959,
Porsche's first sports car had gained a one-piece rounded
windscreen and 15'-diameter wheels. Outwardly very similar to the
final 356Bs, the ultimate 356C model arrived in 1963 sporting
four-wheel disc brakes, among numerous detail improvements, notably
a new ZF steering gear and a more 'calm' rear suspension. Engines
available, both of 1.6 liters, were the 75bhp 'C' and 95bhp 'SC',
the latter replacing the Super 90. The Motorcar Offered This potent
356SC Coupe first emerged on December 14th, 1964, clad in the
stunning combination of Irish Green paint over a black leatherette
interior with mouse grey Corduroy inserts. The top-of-the-line
95-horsepower SC was handsomely optioned with ventilated chrome
wheels shod on Dunlop tires, and a luggage rack on the back. The
new Porsche is believed to have been delivered new to the US, and
remained here ever since. Although the car's history remains
largely unclear, it is known to have been owned by a realtor from
Seattle before being purchased by the consignor; a Bay Area and
Phoenix-based collector, with a taste of the finest performance
cars around. The SC has received much restoration and maintenance.
