1965 Porsche 356 SC coupe #221701. Matching Numbers
1965 was the final year of production for the classic Porsche 356 making this car a very collectible Porsche. The SC model included an upgraded 95HP pushrod motor. Car retains its original color combination of signal red with black vinyl interior according to the Porsche Kardex. Mileage on the odometer shows 4423 (actual mileage is unknown).
A 3 owner car, with the 2nd owner owning the car for 46 years after the original owner enjoyed her for the first 5 years. A bare metal restoration and drive train rebuild was done in the mid nineties and has aged nicely. The car shows very well today and is mechanically sound. The original date matching wheels were just recently re -chromed and new tires were mounted, as well as a rebuilding of the disc brakes. The car drives very well and is a blast to drive.
1965 SC Production Estimate:
According to the production data in Brett Johnson?s book for the 1965 calendar year, Porsche built 485 type 616/16 engines. Of course not all of those engines went into 356C cars built in that year, but one can still make reasonable estimate that of the 1,101 coupes and 588 cabriolets built in that year maybe 30% had SC engines installed in them. Extrapolate those figures and there would be approximately 330 SC coupes built. A very small number indeed.
