The last revision of the 356 was the 356 C introduced for the 1964 model year. It featured disc brakes all round, as well as an option for the most powerful pushrod engine Porsche had ever produced, the 95 hp (71 kW) "SC". 356 production peaked at 14,151 cars in 1964, the year that its successor, the new 911, was introduced to the US market

This is a solid 1964 Porsche 356 C Cabriolet sold by the Unobtanium Store, VIN 159923, that comes with engine number 712268. It sold in January 2106 for $70,100.

This car looks like a stalled project with the outer body presented in primer. The body shows well, so someone put some work into the car. Also of note are a couple of bonuses like the un-kinked hood or the brand new reproduction top frame and top canvas. The reproduction top frame was imported from Italy and is impressive. The engine turns over by hand.

While the metal work looks solid in most places there are a few areas that still need to be addressed. The jack spurs were cut off . Also, there is some old patching at the front of the pans.

With the skyrocketing price of 356 open cars this might have been some lucky buyer's last chance to get their hands on a decent project before they are all museum cars. The C cabriolet was the most refined and luxurious 356 ever built with disc brakes.  This is as good as a 356 gets.
