What would you do?: ’65 Porsche 356SC Coupe
The 1965 356SC represents the most developed version of this timeless Porsche icon. It featured the highest output engine of any street Porsche at 95hp and had disc brakes all around. The C and SC differ in the engine department. The 356C you’re likely to locate will have a pushrod flat-four with a compression ratio of 8.5:1, and is fed through a pair of Zenith 32 NDIX carburetors with twin chokes. But an SC, like today’s featured Porsche 356 SC, is actually an improvement over the earlier Super 90. The SC engine has larger exhaust valves, uses a Super 90 camshaft profile, 9.5:1 compression and twin Solex PII-40 twin-choke carburetors. It is always nice to see a perfectly restored 356SC or even a nicely kept original car. Porsche fans would prize both the world over. And then there are those in between cars like today’s featured car. Clearly, it isn’t ready for the show circuit and there is a hole in the floor that you could put a loaf of bread through but it is a rare SC in an unusual color. The seller doesn’t state the color name but the door jams appear to be the same so there is hope it could be something cool. The seller does inform us of the chassis and motor number so we can assume they match but without a Certificate of Authenticity we won’t know for sure. The engine number reveals a hint, however. So they say it runs strong and shifts great. For now, why not enjoy it while you don’t have to worry about every nick. Click here for eBay auction.
