Ready for high quality street use, tours, shows, club meets, etc. This 356SC coupe was built in March 1964 and was subsequently delivered to AMAG Porsche and its original owner in Bern Switzerland.
It remained in Bern until 1979 when it was imported to the US by a Dupont executive working in Europe at the time. He owned the car for 38 years and in 2014, he completed a comprehensive repaint and mechanical freshening. The car has been driven less than 2,000 miles and sorted since that work was completed.
1,200 miles ago, the top end was restored (for oil leaks) using the Shasta Big Bore 1720cc kit. The car retains the European specification with the exception of the rear tail lamp wiring and lenses and drives as new with plenty of torque and power. The last revision of the 356 was the 356C introduced for the 1964 model year.
It featured disc brakes all round, as well as an option for the most powerful pushrod engine Porsche, had ever produced, the 95 horse power "SC". 356 production peaked 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 356C in North America through 1965 as demand for the model remained quite strong in the early days of the heavier and more "civilized" 911. The last ten 356's (cabriolets) were assembled for the Dutch police force in March 1966 as 1965 models.
