1964 Porsche 356 C Cabriolet

• Completed September 1, 1964
• One of 1,744 356C Cabriolets produced in 1964
• 1600cc engine 75HP (P715223) - matching
• Transmission 741 (81977) – matching

According to the Kardex, this Cabriolet was originally finished in Ruby Red with a Black interior and options included chrome wheels, Dunlop tires, and an AM/FM Blaupunkt radio has been installed. The first owner was Helen P Squire from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Delivered by P.C. Import located in Northbrook, Illinois. They were one of the seven Porsche distributors in the USA in the early 1960s.

This is a great running open 356 project with a strong engine, smooth shifting transmission, and four-wheel disc brakes. The paint is older with some patina and imperfections. It will also need some metalwork. The front floor pan, battery box, and longitudinal will need to be replaced. However, it does have a matching number engine and transmission per Kardex. It is becoming very difficult to find good Cabriolet projects. This is a great opportunity to purchase a matching number open 356 needing a little work at a reasonable entry-level price.
