The last revision of the 356 was the 356 C introduced for the 1964 model year. It featured disc brakes all around, as well as an option for the most powerful pushrod engine Porsche had ever produced, the 95 horse power "SC". Production of the 356 peaked at 14,151 cars in 1964, the year that its successor, the new 911, was introduced to the US market (it was introduced slightly earlier in Europe). The company continued to sell the 356 C in North America through 1965 as demand for the model remained quite strong in the early days of the heavier and more "civilized" 911.
This is a phenomenal driving 356 with a twin-plug unit based on a 912 case, it has amazing torque and lots of power! Parts used includes: JE Piston & Cylinder, 200mm flywheel, Scat light-weight crank, European heater & exhaust, Twin ignition distributor, oil cooler, Webber 40 IDF carburetor & 12 volt alternator. Over $30,000 on the engine build! Four wheel disc brakes & smooth shifting 741 4-speed manual transmission. This 356 C Coupe is absolutely a pleasure to drive!
