–Anthracite Grey with Black leather interior and Grey square weave carpeting, Restored, Sunroof, Original California “Black Plate”, Big Bore motor.


This 356C Sunroof Coupe has enjoyed long time California ownership and is still fitted with “California Black plates.”


During restoration it was decided to give this 356C more power by installing a 912 engine with Weber Carburetors. This engine is estimated to produce a 110 horsepower with an excellent wide torque band. The suspension has been lowered slightly both front and rear to ensure excellent handling. Factory options include, Chrome Wheels, Factory Amber Driving Lamps as well as the desirable Factory Headrest Option.


Cosmetically and structurally, the car is in excellent condition with tight and even panel fit as well as door and door jams with crisp edges and perfect shut. The floors are original and free of corrosion or corrosion repair and the battery box has been replaced correctly during restoration.


This restored 356C Sunroof Coupe has fantastic power from its “Hot Rod-Outlaw” motor and with sport suspension and disc brakes, this original “Black Plate” C Sunroof Coupe will make for an outstanding fast road or event car.

Value: US$28,000 – 39,000

Comment: Worth the 85K for a restored, high spec 356C with sunroof in a great colour. I believe SCM could be a little out of date with some of their values.
