1964 Porsche 356 SC Cabriolet

Once in a very great while a truly great car comes along, VIN 159646 is such a car. European Collectibles has restored hundreds of cars over the years but this particular 356 SC should never have been restored; it was a potential preservation class winner before we did a total nut and bolt restoration. The original owner insisted on having his 356 restored and that is what we did. After stripping the 356 to steel we were amazed, it had never had any damage to the body, never had any rust repair and had never been disassembled. It had spent its entire life in inland California and was in storage for the past 30 years prior to restoration.

European Collectibles completely disassembled this 356, stripped the body to steel, did a complete concour repaint its original color (Champagne Yellow), had everything re-chromed, installed new rubber, a complete new German interior and rebuilt the entire driveline including engine, transmission, brakes, and suspension.

The thing that sets this car apart from the rest is the quality of the original parts. Normally you take off the original parts and they are needing to be restored but all the original parts looked like NOS (new off the shelf, obsolete original parts), the wiper motor was as brand new, the relays looked like you had just pulled them out of an NOS box, the seat chrome was as it left the factory. All the gauges switches and dash components whereas new. All the original insulation was perfect, untouched & in excellent condition. The wiring harness we usually always replace but the harness was as new. We stripped the undercarriage to steel and the original floors and battery box had zero rust with no damage. All the suspension came out and was rebuilt. All the chrome was redone in triple plate. This is truly a 356SC for the real discerning collector.

One of the most desirable collector models is the 356 SC Cabriolet, introduced in September of 1963 for the 1964-year model. It was the best driving 356 built with plenty of horsepower! One of approximately 1,200 built. This 356 features all of the subtle improvements and updated details fitted to the 356 over the 15 years of the production run. 1600cc producing 95 horsepower engine with 741 manual 4-speed transmission and four-wheel disc brakes.

Offered with tools, books, boot cover and Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche confirming matching decks, doors and driveline. Truly one of the best 356 SC Cabriolets that you will find with no issues. Everything has been done, finished in a beautiful correct original color combination and truly a dream to drive!
