The Porsche 356 was produced from 1948. The Porsche 356 A was built until 1959, when it was replaced by the 356 B. In 1963, Porsche's perennial favorite experienced its final stage of expansion as the Porsche 356 C.
The 356 C, which went into production in mid-1963, had a new ZF steering gear and a balancing spring at the rear with a quieter swing axle suspension. Four-wheel disc brakes were also part of the revision, and a 12-volt electrical system became available.
Two 1600cc engines were offered, the C version with 75 hp and the SC with higher compression and counterbalanced crankshaft with 95 hp.
Porsche's popularity skyrocketed, and with more than 10,000 vehicles in 1964, it surpassed the company's total in its first decade. Aside from the rare and expensive Carrera, the 1600 C and SC Cabriolets were the most exclusive road cars of the time, offering comfort, performance and a smooth drive.

According to the official certificate from Porsche, which is available for this vehicle and confirms its originality, the Porsche 356 C 1600 Coupé presented here was delivered in July 1964 to what was then the most well-known US Porsche dealer Brumos in Jacksonville, Florida.
The person who ordered the vehicle ordered the 356 in signal red (6407B) with black synthetic leather interior. A green-tinted windshield, an outside mirror and 2 leather straps for the rear were ordered as individual equipment.
In the further documentation that is available for the vehicle, it can be seen that the Porsche enthusiast Dale Rothenberger from Merritt Island, Florida bought the Porsche 356 from Brumos in Jacksonville in 1964. Rothenberger was to accompany the car for half his life. He maintained the car and always drove it under the Florida sun in the best weather conditions.
When our customer and current owner discovered the 356 in the garage of its first owner in 2015, he had to buy the car. The Porsche 356 quickly changed hands and was extensively restored in the original colors on good substance.
