When "early Porsches" are mentioned, the classic and recognizable
Porsche 356 frequently immediately comes to mind. It was a
well-known and adored sports vehicle thanks to its classic style
that developed over the course of its more than ten-year production
cycle, steadily improving in terms of power and handling. It
transformed into a sports car that could be considered "practical"
with room for two front passengers and two slightly smaller
passengers in the back. The 356 would go on to establish itself as
one of the all-time greats of early sports car design, and it
represents that now with its enthusiast base and strong values.
This undoubtedly contributed to its appeal. Three generations of
356 development makes the 356 SC the best 356 to drive.
This 356 SC Outlaw is upgraded to 2.2 liter and utilizes dual Weber
carburetors. The vehicle also sports a four-speed manual
transmission upgraded by Scott's Independent, and four-wheel
hydraulic disc brakes.
The 356 was entirely disassembled for a ground-up restoration
thoroughly addressing every component, including the engine,
transmission, exhaust, brakes, suspension, chrome, rubber, paint,
Willhoit took this 356 SC to the next level with "Outlaw" upgrades,
carrying out an extremely detailed engine rebuild upgrading
components from pistons to cams, heads to carburetors, even the
smallest pieces of hardware. The same treatment was given to the
transmission for assurance that the increased power output of 152
hp and 157 lb-ft of torque would be smoothly transferred to the
wheels. The Hella 128 fog lights, European headlights, Blaupunkt
Frankfurt AM/FM radio are among the additions provided.
Factory options from new, pursuant to the COA, including
Leatherette Headrests, Original Chrome Wheels and Hubcaps, Koko
Mats, Seat Belts, 70-liter Fuel Tank, Carrera VDM Wooden Steering
Wheel, and Camber Compensating Spring. Also Included are all
necessary equipment, literature, and a Porsche Certificate of
Authenticity confirming the matching numbers engine and
transmission and body components. Certainly, this is one of the
nicest 356 SC Coupes you will encounter. An absolute dream car!
Upon arriving at Canepa, this vehicle was subjected to our Canepa
Difference process, in which it was personally test-driven by Bruce
Canepa and then inspected by our team of veteran Porsche
technicians. Our team took the time to look over every inch of the
vehicle to ensure it was in great condition. Canepa upgrades
include wider painted steel Porsche rims (original chrome wheels
and hubcaps included in purchase), wider tires, and having the 356
SC slightly lowered and realigned to Bruce's preferred suspension
settings. Once our techs deemed everything to be on par, it was
sent to our Concours award-winning detail department where it was
given a complete detail to ensure it was show field ready.
The 356SC is remembered in Porsche history as a driving legend and
one of the BEST 356s ever made. A "blue chip" Porsche like this is
a good investment for seasoned automobile aficionados as well as
those fresh to the classic car scene.
