The last evolution of Porsche’s original sports car, the 356C showcased improvements over its predecessors including four-wheel disc brakes, revised suspension tuning, and a more refined interior. This final-year 356C Coupe comes finished in Ruby Red and derives power from a replacement 1600cc engine. It was acquired by the current owner in 2015 and has been maintained exclusively by an authorized Porsche dealer in California ever since.
This Coupe came factory-painted in Ruby Red (6402) and was refinished in its original color at some point under previous ownership. Equipment includes a chrome rear luggage rack and driver’s side mirror, chrome bumper overriders with integrated exhaust outlets, a twin-grille decklid, and 15” slotted chrome wheels with Porsche-crested hubcaps. The car rides on a set of Michelin tires (DOT FHTK A6F X 2203) and includes a full-size spare wheel in the trunk. Some minor cosmetic imperfections are depicted, and the seller notes the door and window seals remain in excellent condition, detailed damages are provided in the gallery.
The cabin is fitted with black leatherette seats and door panels, a painted dashboard, and a perforated white headliner. Accessories include a three-spoke steering wheel with Porsche crested horn button, a rubber floor liner, pop-out rear quarter windows, front vent windows, a locking glovebox, and a vintage Blaupunkt radio. The interior is said to have been previously reconditioned and the seller reports all gauges to be working properly apart from the clock.
Power is derived from a replacement air-cooled 1600cc type 616/15 engine sourced from an earlier 1964 356C. A 4-speed manual gearbox drives the rear wheels and stopping power comes from disc brakes at each corner. The car has been maintained exclusively at Auto Gallery of Woodland Hills under the current ownership since 2015 and some corresponding records are said to be available. There are no outstanding maintenance items reported at this time.
This sale will include a clean title.
