1964 Porsche 356This 1964 Porsche 356C underwent a cabriolet conversion some years ago. The builder used all of the necessary parts from a cabriolet to convert this coupe into a convertible. The entire rear skin is factory cabriolet, s is the windshield frame and adjoining area. The rear deck lid is factory cabriolet, s well. Mounts for the top frame were fabricated, ee pics. Included in the sale is a brand new top frame sourced from Europe. You may have seen these expensive, andcrafted top frames at the L.A. Lit Meet this year. The builder picked a good coupe to start with, s the car appears very solid. The paint, hile very shiny, ay not be to every driver's taste. The color is burgundy metallic with shadowed racing stripes, lease see pics.
The project was stalled at some point and stored indoors for a number of years. We gently woke it up and had the following services performed:
Full engine tune up w/ points, ondenser
Complete rebuild of Weber 40 IDF carbs
Fuel system flush with new filter
Brake system flush
New 12V battery
In the car is period correct (and possibly matching) 356C motor #711279. The builder had the engine built with big bore pistons and cylinders and performance Weber IDF carburetors, o it's a bit of a hot rod. The owner also converted the car to 12-volt for more reliability and stronger starts. The car is now running, riving and stopping. Everything included with the car is pictured, o there will be a few pieces left to source to finish the car. The car retains a coupe VIN, ut is listed as a convertible on the title.
If you've found yourself priced out of the open car market but still want to feel the wind in your hair, his is your chance for the ultimate affordable convertible. A strong engine, 2-volt reliability on disc brakes will make this a great fun-in-the-sun Porsche.
