This 356 C is reported to have been professionally refinished in its original color of Ruby Red some years ago.  The finish is noted to be in good overall condition with only some minor patina showing (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery.  This 356 C is equipped with factory date-matched wheels which were dressed in all new tires earlier this year.

Inside, the cabin is said to be in excellent shape for its age with all gauges and electrical components remaining fully functional.  For the 356 C series, the interior saw several revisions including redesigned heating and ventilation controls as well as the addition of a reading lamp for the passenger in the Coupe model.

This 356 C retains its original air-cooled 1.6 L flat-four engine which is mated to a number’s matching 4-speed manual transmission.  Approximately 75 HP is delivered to the rear wheels allowing for top speeds north of 105 MPH.  The 356 C features some noteworthy technical improvements over its predecessors including the addition of disc brakes on all four corners.  The motor was tuned within the last 20 years and all basic maintenance is said to be up-to-date.  This 356 C underwent a recent inspection through the Porsche Classic program which found the car to be very well sorted.  With a valve adjustment, oil change and compression leak down test performed very recently, this 356 is said to be in excellent running order.

The sale of this 2-owner 356 C will include a set of two keys, original books and tools, service records, a jack and spare tire.  If you have always dreamed of owning a classic Porsche 356, this nicely preserved C series Coupe may just be the one.

    @trendano3 It is Ruby Red. I've got the C.O.A Stating Ruby Red also.

    Nice example of an early C coupe. 64 Karmann Coupes started production in July 63 with VIN 215001. This one is 215070 making it one of the first C coupes. Very cool. Question, it looks like Signal Red vs. Ruby. Could be the lighting in the pictures. The paint code should be on the drivers side front jamb panel. Ruby would be 6402, Signal 6407. Thanks.

    @ppalmer Bubbling at bottom of doors. Clear coat failing at spots. I've got a file 3 inches thick of paperwork. This is truly a great driver. Really doesn't get any better for the funds!
