The vehicle in detail

Introduced in 1948, the 356 was improved upon throughout its production until 1965, when it was replaced by the all-new 911. Unveiled at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show, the final 356 C series incorporated several significant changes, most notably four-wheel disc brakes.

According to a copy of the Porsche Kardex, this 356 C Coupe was completed by the factory on November 16, 1964, and retailed through famed Southern California dealer Competition Motors. Originally finished in Black over a Black leatherette interior, this 356 was equipped with optional ventilated chrome wheels and a wood steering wheel. While its early history is not well documented, this 356 underwent a cosmetic and mechanical restoration under the ownership of respected Florida-based collector Leo Schigiel, who acquired the Porsche in 2011 from its long-term Oregon owner. During the restoration process, the car was repainted black, as it was originally delivered, while the interior was reupholstered in contrasting red leather with oatmeal square-weave carpets. The original, matching-numbers type 616/15 engine and four-speed manual transaxle were overhauled, the gauges were rebuilt, and the brightwork was replated or replaced.

Accompanied by an owner’s manual, tool kit, jack, luggage, Porsche COA, copy of Kardex, and restoration receipts, this 356 C presents in well-restored condition throughout. The ultimate development of an iconic Porsche model, this 356 C would be a welcome addition to any collection.
