1965 Porsche 356 sunroof coupe. Serial # 219825 delivered September 10th, 1964. 80,413 miles. Ruby Red (6402), interior black (Vinyl), black leather seats, charcoal carpet OE. Engine (#715357), transaxle (#82281), color and sunroof match certificate of authenticity. Very straight. Well executed basecoat/clearcoat. Excellent gaps at all seams. Proper rubber fitment. Clean original glass. Undercarriage has original undercoat in excellent condition. No signs of collision, front or rear, no signs of rust repair. With a little more work on very small issues, this car can be a national level concours contender. Obviously garaged. Many original parts inside, interior panels, headliner and recovered leather seats.
This is one of the best original 356 vehicles I have encountered in the last 30 years. I cannot remember an original interior in this condition or an undercarriage in such an excellent condition. The following bits are upside and downside descriptions:
Touch up 3-4 places with sealant. Undercoat entire under carriage in more evenly black. Transaxle has a light drip and needs a minor reseal. Repair any damaged undercoating. Align engine seal properly. Temp gauge is inoperable and needs a sender. Left door pull has two small cracks that need to be recovered. Mismatched wheels – need to find the correct set.
81,000 miles – Always garaged. Seats recovered in black leather – excellent seat chrome. Les Leston wood steering wheel. Original carpet not worn in usual spots (very nice OE). Original inside panels and back seats. Original headliner. Very nice chrome and window trim. Original dash paint. Excellent body lines and fitment. 1000 miles on rebuilt engine (Honest Engine). Painted 1987 Can-Am Constructors.
Price: $139,500 (offers considered)
