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, and interior.

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.
