"The Porsche 356 has the best gearbox, the best finish, one of the most efficient bodies and the lowest wear index of any sportscar in the world" - Sports Car World 1964
When Porsche was in the midst of designing the 901, later known as the 911 they came up with the ultimate evolution of the beloved 356: the SC. Think of it as the crown jewel of the series of air-cooled four-cylinder boxer engines, starting with the 35hp of the first 356 pre-A to the very much sportier 95 thoroughbreds of this 356 SC. Over all adaptations and evolutions the engine concept always proved to be very reliable and manageable, something that also remained true with this ultimate version.
Our 356SC, originally delivered in Hawaii, meets all the expectations of a driver/collector: fully matching numbers and then also in the excellent and rarer black-on-black color combination. In addition, this car was ordered by its first owner with a lot of nice options. The most striking of course is the all but common electric sunroof, at the time a very expensive (and luxurious) option that makes life for the passengers so much more pleasant, a real plus on this car! Everything can be read on the Porsche Kardex data card supplied with the vehicle.
In addition to the virtually perfect execution, the condition of this car can also be called exceptional. This SC was completely restored in Germany a few years ago and has put a few thousand km on the counter since then. The engine runs very smooth and pulls at any load, helped by the excellent gearbox and for the first time standard Porsche brake discs all around.
This is the version you want in the condition you want it!
As Ferdinand Porsche once said : " Porsche, there is no substitute!"
