Paul Russell and Company is proud to offer this numbers matching 1964 Porsche 356C Cabriolet. The 356C was the last iteration of Porsche's venerable 356, replacing the previous 356B. In 1964 when the 356C was introduced to the market, Porsche did away with the 60 horsepower engine that was found in the previous 356 model. The new 356C boasted a 75 horsepower engine that until then had been reserved for the 1600 Super. Due to the increased power, disc brakes were added to all four corners providing better stopping power and less maintenance.
This particular Porsche has been a local resident of the Boston area since new. It was delivered to first owner Ethel Carney of Brookline, Massachusetts on September 9th, 1964. Little is known about the history of the car until our Sales Team purchased the car locally in 2022. It is presented in its original colors of Irish Green over Black and retains its matching engine and transmission. It has recently received a mechanical tune up and is in good running and driving condition. A compression test shows results between 125-130 psi on all four cylinders. A new top, headliner and tonneau cover have been installed by the Paul Russell and Company Upholstery Department and compliment the handsome interior. The dash houses a period looking, yet modern radio which has an auxiliary adapter to connect to a mobile phone. The exterior has received a comprehensive detailing which highlights the Irish Green paint, but still shows some minor wear from over the years. This 356C is a text book good driver, and is ready for some top-down cruising. The tool roll, jack, spare tire, Kardex, owner’s manual and driver’s manual accompany the sale of this car.
