1965 car underwent a complete restoration

The 55-year-old Porsche 356 SC convertible has appeared on the website of the American classic dealer Highline Motorsports. The specimen is waiting for a collector who is ready to pay 325 thousand dollars for it. That’s more than the price of two new Panameras.

The Porsche 356 was the first car of the German brand. Its production started in 1948 and ended 17 years later when it was replaced by the 911, which became the company’s hallmark.

This makes this rear-wheel-drive 356 SC soft top one of the last pieces to be released towards the end of production. The top-of-the-line configuration of the vehicle also comes with a high price tag and comes with a factory toolkit, a suitcase and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.

Several years ago, a black convertible with a range of 158 thousand kilometers underwent a complete restoration of both the exterior and the “filling”. It is driven by a four-cylinder boxer engine, paired with a manual transmission.

In August, RM Sotheby’s sold a hot rod made of two Porsches. The 356 coupe sports car inherited a matte black body, which was manually fitted to the chassis of a Porsche 911. The lot was sold for 858 thousand dollars
