1965 Porsche 356SC Coupe

We previously featured a modified 1967 Porsche 911 Sunroof Coupe that was built in this vein and like that car this definitely won’t appeal to everyone, but in their own way each of these are fantastic. The car featured here is a 1965 Porsche 356SC Coupe that has had extensive work to make it into a vintage hill-climb racer along with some visual modification to give it a hot rod/outlaw sort of look. Though modified, this 356 retains its original engine and transmission, and comes with the CoA for each, though both have been rebuilt by Vic Skirmants for improved performance. A car nearing 50 years of age that is in good condition is difficult enough to find, one that also possesses unique and well-documented modifications such as this one is a rare bird indeed.

I have only copied part of the seller’s description to this post because the description is very long and detailed (along with a plethora of photos), so please check it out in full to get a complete sense of the work done on this car. Like the 911 previously featured, everything on this 356 looks exquisite and meticulously maintained. Bali Blue is a terrific shade and, while it’s not original to this car, it certainly fits within the overall aesthetic and provides excellent contrast to set off the various pieces of chrome trim. Overall, a really interesting and well put-together example of a vintage Porsche racer. It certainly won’t come cheaply, but an interested buyer will be getting a car that is sure to please.
