Price 67,500 USD
Buy Classic Volks – 1964 Porsche 356 SC for sale in Santa Barbara, California. It’s a Beautiful Germany Sport Coupe, 1964 Porsche on excellent condition and very clean and solid, numbers matching 1964 Porsche 356SC Coupe finished in factory correct Signal Red (6407) over a tan interior. Just acquired from a private collector in New Hampshire, the car was restored and refinished years ago by its prior owner, including a rebuild to its top specification, 95hp SC engine. As strong running and fun to drive as any 356 we’ve owned and with an excellent suspension and standard four wheel disc brakes, the car is arguably the best vintage back roads driver on the market, the ultimate expression of Porsche’s 356 cornerstone.

The car’s Signal Red finish is abundantly presentable, deep and lustrous and marred only by minimal imperfections, none of which are evident in any of the pictures. The body is very straight, the door and panel fits are all good, and the rubber is all in great shape. The chrome has been redone at some point and remains in good condition, as does all of the glass, free of any wiper scrapes or rock chips. The chrome wheels and colored crest hub caps are in great shape, wrapped in tires with plenty of remaining tread. The car’s interior is equally as clean, the reupholstered tan leather seats and interior panels showing only negligible wear, the correct, German square-weave carpets and rubber mats in excellent condition and the headliner without flaw. The padded dash is in excellent shape and the car retains its original, uncracked steering wheel, as well as its original Blaupunkt radio. The car’s pans and battery box were replaced by the prior owner and the undercarriage appears entirely solid. The boot is neat and correct, housing the original spare wheel, leather holding strap, changing tools and partial tool kit.
In recent months the 356SC has been reviewed, sorted, and detailed by Porsche marque expert Randy Currier of Holderness, New Hampshire, using only correct and top-quality parts. Among the items addressed: the engine was tuned, the valves were adjusted, the fuel system was fitted with all-new fuel lines and filters, the Solex carburetors were rebuilt and tuned, the cooling-fan drive belt was replaced, and both the motor oil and oil filter were changed. The ignition system benefits from a new condenser, distributor cap, and rotor, and a new battery was installed as well. A primer reservoir supplied by Precision Matters assists in cold-starting ease. New brakes were installed, the suspension was fitted with new kingpins and kingpin links, and all shock absorbers were replaced, as were the rubber axle boots. All wheels were powder-coated for a durable finish and correct original hubcaps with the Porsche crest were fitted. Inside, the seat-adjustment tracks and seat belts were restored, tan leather hold-down straps for the front-mounted spare tire and luggage shelf were installed into their respective locations, and correct floor mats were added.
Now this beautiful example is looking for another caring owner who will continue to enjoy it, whether as the beautiful, solid, weekend driver that it is today or as an excellent platform for a top tier restoration in the years to come. With the exception of the Italian supercars, perhaps no other marque has seen its classics generate more consistent appreciation over the last decade than Porsche, and acquiring an original, solid, fully numbers matching, hard to find 356SC is sure to yield rewards, in both monetary terms and enjoyment of ownership.
