The vehicle in detail

The paintwork is in excellent condition, with good gaps and panel fit. The exterior trim, brightwork, and rubber seals are in excellent condition. Recent upgrades to the interior include reupholstery of the front seats and door panels, accompanied by a factory VDM steering wheel, VDO instrumentation, and a Kenwood stereo. The undercarriage is nicely detailed and solid and rust-free. Chrome 4.5” x 15” wheels are mounted to Vredestein Sprint Classic tires (date coded 2023).

Mechanically, it is in excellent condition and is a fantastic 356SC to drive. The 1600cc matching flat-four engine (Type 616/16) produces 107 BHP @ 5200 RPM, with 90 Ft-Lbs of Torque @ 4200 RPM. Power to the rear wheels passes through the matching manual 4-speed transmission (Type 741) with a four-wheel disc braking system. The top speed is 125 MPH.

One of the most desirable collector models is the 356 SC Cabriolet, introduced in September of 1963 for the 1964-year model. It is the best-driving 356, built with plenty of horsepower and four-wheel disc brakes! The 356SC features subtle improvements and updated details fitted to the 356 over the 15 years of the production run. It is accompanied by the original build sheet, spare wheel, jack, and boot cover. This is an excellent opportunity to acquire the top-of-the-line 356 Cabriolet in a striking color combination, complete with its original driveline.
