Vintages Porsches always have a more limited appeal unless they are a particularly rare model, in which case the limitations become financial. The 356 does have its share of fans, but with the 911 remaining ever popular it tends to garner much of the attention. That is to be expected given the sheer iconic stature the 911 has developed over its 50 years of production, but I remain strangely attracted to the 356. They’re attractive cars that easily show their foundation as the 911’s predecessor. So even if they’ve be relegated behind the 911, the 356 remains the 911’s roots and for that it deserves plenty of appreciation. The example here comes from near the end of 356 production: a Silver 1964 Porsche 356SC, located in Maryland, with a magnificent Red interior and a reported 58,645 miles on it.
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.
