1964 Porsche 356 1600 SC

Kept by first owner in Rome for 30 years!

Recently and extensively restored, matching numbers!

Porsche upgraded the 356 for the last time in the summer of 1963, when the B was followed by the C. Although the exterior only underwent a few changes, one of the new model's key differences was that it featured disc breaks. As the 60 bhp version was discontinued, the top non-Carrera model's power rating was bumped by another 5 bhp, named SC and turned into a veritable sport car with everything the heart of that era could possibly desire. The present Porsche 356 SC was supplied new on 29 July 1964 to Rome, featuring the optional headrests. It stayed with its first owner for a full 30 years and still sports its original black Roma numberplate. It only left Rome in 2012, when it went to a new owner based in Modena, where a third owner finally had it restored in 2013. Having become slightly flushed by now, the SC was resprayed in its original light ivory colour and the black leather interior was completely renewed. The extent of the work performed on the vehicle has not only been extensively documented with photographs, but also clearly shows in the SC's stunning looks. The rear still contains the original engine, which continues to do more than a powerful job! As an SC, this engine is not only one of the most powerful engines money can buy, but also one of the most sought after of its kind by far, which, coupled with its classic colour scheme, full service history and the stunning condition of this example, makes this Porsche a spectacular find!
