Checked boxes: ’65 Porsche 356C
The mad dash to acquire early Porsches hasn’t cooled off much. The recent edition of Sports Car Market Price Guide has valuations still marching forward with early 911s outpacing 356 by a bit. But driving a nice 356C like today’s find is something one shouldn’t miss. We generally like cars from this seller. They are perfectly situated in Southern California and have been around long enough to know where all the good stuff is buried. And this white 356C looks like one of the good ones (trust but verify). It looks pretty straight and they tell us is has the correct engine. Now here is a good question to ask because that raised a flag for us. Does correct mean numbers matching? We think they might be fudging this one. If it is correct and not matching, that reduces the collectibility but not the enjoyment. Actually, if it is a color change, the damage would be worse. So ask away. The price is $54,900 and that sits right in the upper ends of the scale at SCM’s Price Guide. Click here for the listing.
