1965 Porsche 356C 1600 Super – Barn Discovery

Rare, UK-supplied, right-hand drive 356C Coupé discovered after 44 years in dry storage.

Our vendor has applied for a COA from Porsche to confirm the vehicle’s details and the new owner of this rare find will need to apply for a new style V5c (our vendor wanted to allow the new keeper the opportunity to show as the next owner on the V5c).

The very last of the 356 Generation, a real survivor and ready to be preserved for future generations to admire.

DESCRIPTION

  • Built in late 1964 as a 1965 model-year Coupé and first registered in 1966
  • Upgraded by AFN on delivery with a Super 90 engine confirmed by the 356 Registry, a Porsche COA has been applied for
  • A real survivor, nicely stored over the years and presenting in lovely, mostly original condition
  • Accompanied by a history file with driver’s manual, lots of paperwork including engine rebuild in ’76, old MOTs and invoices for maintenance
  • The perfect basis for a full Concours restoration or recommission and use ‘as is’, a rare UK 356C Coupé with unique patination

#131866 is a rare, UK-supplied, right-hand drive 356C Coupe discovered after nearly 44 years off the road in dry storage. Manufactured in 1964 and supplied new by AFN Ltd. – (Frazer-Nash Cars) prior to being first registered in 1966.

The 356 Registry have confirmed that they believe that this example had been upgraded with a 1600 Super 90 engine by the supplying dealer in period.

Pleasingly, accompanying this lovely coupé is a history file which contains the original drivers manual, Porsche service book, a wealth of invoices for maintenance over the years, old MOT certificates, Tax discs, insurance certificates and, notably, an invoice for an engine rebuild in 1976 just before the car disappeared into long term storage.

Finished in Bali Blue (Baliblau), the overall condition of this ‘barn discovery’ appears good and quite solid but most importantly it retains much of its original equipment. Many components wear a date stamp of 1964 and as such we believe this example offers a superb opportunity as a restoration project or, perhaps, just a sympathetic recommission and use ‘as is’ with a unique patina.
