Porsche's Type 356, introduced in 1948, is acknowledged to be one of the world's greatest sports cars. Over a 15-year production run, the handsome and durable 356 evolved from a streamlined little aluminium-bodied coupe powered by a VW-derived, 46hp 1100cc air-cooled flat four to a powerful autobahn burner.
By the time the 356B arrived in September 1959, Porsche's first sports car had gained a one-piece rounded windscreen and 15"-diameter wheels. Outwardly very similar to the final 356Bs, the ultimate 356C model arrived in 1963 sporting four-wheel disc brakes, among numerous detail improvements, notably a new ZF steering gear and a more 'calm' rear suspension. Engines available, both of 1.6 litres, were the 75bhp 'C' and 95bhp 'SC', the latter replacing the Super 90.
This beautiful example was built in October 1964 and is presented in its original colours of Signal Red (6407) with Black Leatherette / B and its original engine.
