Introduced in 1948, the 356 was Porsche's first production car. Available in either coupé or open sports versions, the 356 was a lightweight rear engined, rear wheel drive sports car with fine handling characteristics. Production continued until 1965. It became a popular car for converting for racing and rallying and enjoyed much success through the years in many famous racing events. As a Porsche 356 SC, it is the top of the range model in the 356's final incarnation; with disc brakes all round and the 95bhp version of the 1600cc push-rod engine.

This delightful Porsche is finished in silver with black interior and is best described as being a lovely genuine example. The interior appears to be completely original, the engine runs well with no adverse noises and we are advised she drives with no known faults.

Supplied with a V5C registration document this is a genuine UK supplied right hand drive Porsche 356 SC coupé; this extremely stylish example can be defined as an automotive masterpiece, offering beauty, presence and practicality all in one.
