1964 Porsche 356 C ---Running and driving project---

This 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, as is the windshield frame and adjoining area. The rear deck lid is factory cabriolet, as well. Mounts for the top frame were fabricated, see pics. Included in the sale is a brand new top frame sourced from Europe. You may have seen these expensive, handcrafted top frames at the L.A. Lit Meet this year. The builder picked a good coupe to start with, as the car appears very solid. The paint, while very shiny, may not be to every driver's taste. The color is burgundy metallic with shadowed racing stripes, please 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, condenser Complete rebuild of Weber 40 IDF carbs Valve adjustment 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, so 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, driving and stopping. Everything included with the car is pictured, so there will be a few pieces left to source to finish the car. The car retains a coupe VIN, but 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, this is your chance for the ultimate affordable convertible. A strong engine, 12-volt reliability on disc brakes will make this a great fun-in-the-sun Porsche.
