THE PORSCHE 356

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 carrying a complex, two-liter four-cam boxer Carrera engine of 130 horsepower. Its steady development brought not only Coupes, but luxurious Cabriolets and more spartan Speedsters and Roadsters; more than 76,000 examples in all by the time production ceased in 1965.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This potent 356C Coupe first emerged from the Zuffenhausen-based Porsche works in 1965, clad in the stunning combination of Irish green paint over a green leatherette interior. The car was equipped with chrome wheels and hub caps, a wooden steering wheel, and is believed to have been delivered new to the US market.

Although the cars early history remains unknown, the 356 is known to have been owned by an Ontario, Canada based Porsche dealership principal for nearly a decade, during which time the car received proper maintenance and refurbishments. This desirable, fully-evolved C-model 356 presents beautifully in classic Ivory over black, and has been fitted with a correct, yet later, 912-type 1,600cc engine, with an enlarged displacement of 1,730cc. Various accessories are included in the sale of this striking Porsche, including a jack, owner's manual, a detailed history file with many receipts, and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.

A fine example of the end-of-the-run Porsche 356, this sporting Coupe would be a great example to use on rallies such as the Copperstate 1000, and offers sprite performance, exquisite handling, and powerful disc brakes in all four corners.
