Specification
1,582 cc OHV air-cooled horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine, outputting 75HP, with dual 32 Zenith carburetors, four-speed manual 741 transmission, independent front suspension with laminated torsion bars, parallel trailing arms, and tubular shock absorbers, independent rear swing axles with torsion bars and tubular shock absorbers, and four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes. The 356 C is truly one of the BEST 356s to drive.

History
The 356 was a lightweight and nimble-handling rear-engine rear-wheel-drive 2-door sports car available in hardtop coupé and open configurations. Engineering innovations continued during the years of manufacture, contributing to its motorsports success and popularity. However, when the T6 got disc brakes in 1964, with no other visible alterations, they called it the model C, or the SC. The last revision of the 356 was the 356C introduced for the 1964 & 1965 model year. It featured disc brakes all round and a more powerful 75 horsepower engine as a standard.
