The C Series was introduced in 1964, along with the ultimate road-going variation of the pushrod 356 - the SC. The SC models, just as the Super and Super 90 models that came before, were a showpiece for the automaker's competition heritage and offered an increase in overall performance. The cars came equipped from the factory with four-wheel disc brakes and a smooth-shifting Type 741 gearbox.
This SC Coupe was completed on April 27th of 1964 and was originally intended for European delivery. The car left the factory painted in Signal Red with an interior upholstered in black leatherette. As some point in its history, the car had migrated to Southern California where it was in the car of avid Porsche enthusiasts. In the early 2000s, it was treated to a comprehensive restoration.
The car is equipped with Hella 128 fog lamps, luggage straps, chrome wheels, a Blaupunkt radio and a rare Les Leston wood-rimmed steering wheel complete with a Deluxe horn ring.
In 2012, the car was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction held in Scottsdale, AZ. It was estimated to sell for $70,000 - $85,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had sold for the sum of $72,600 inclusive of buyer's premium.
