The Porsche 356C was introduced in July of 1963. Even though nearly 15 years had past since the first Gmunds cars had been produced, the same basic layout remained. Several bodywork changes had been over that time period, such as to accommodate larger bumpers and windows, revised headlights and twin grilles.
This 356C Coupe is a matching-numbers example that has been treated to a comprehensive restoration in 2000. It is fitted with a Reutter luggage rack, an original Blaupunkt AM/FM radio, original jack, a complete set of tools and factory chrome wheels and hubcaps. It has its original 6-volt electrical system.
It is painted in silver and has been well cared for and driven sparingly since its restoration. In the summer of 2006, the car won an award at the Monterey Bay Region Porsche Club of America (PCA) Conocurs.
In 2009, this Porsche was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction held in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was expected to sell for $50,000 - $60,000 and offered without reserve. The lot was sold for the sum of $45,100 including buyer's premium.
