The 1963 Porsche 356C Coupe and Cabriolet models were the final development of the 356 lineup. While the 356C body shape was similar to that of the Porsche 356B T6 body style that it followed, there were a few changes that allow buyers to visually differentiate between the two types. The biggest pointer to the 356C is the hubcap design, which was smaller and flatter than the A or B models. They were specially manufactured for the new wheels that were made to cover the four-wheel disc brakes and bolt pattern that was launching on the new 911 at the time. During the production of the 356C from 1963 to the end of production in 1965, the Porsche 356C Coupe saw greater demand in the market than its Cabriolet counterpart. The Porsche 356C Coupe, identifiable by its fixed steel top, is one of the more available 356 classics in the market today, and is a great selection for those collectors who want a 356 that encompasses all the changes that took place throughout the lifespan of this illustrious sports car line. The 356C also makes a great purchase for those looking to drive their classic Porsche more frequently.
If you’re interested in buying a 1963 Porsche 356C Coupe, you’ve come to the right place for Buyer’s Tips and information to help you successfully find, negotiate and purchase the car you desire. One of the benefits to purchasing a classic Porsche 356 is the fact that the mechanics are generally long lived. However, you should always check for good oil pressure, oil leaks and excessive smoke. Having a classic Porsche expert perform a third-party, pre-purchase inspection is vital to understanding the condition of any 356 you’re considering purchasing. You’ll also want to check for any rust or signs of rust repair, as certain parts for the 356C can be expensive to restore and/or replace. If the car is able to be driven, be sure to listen for knocks and rattles from the suspension area, check that the gears change smoothly, and when starting the car from cold, be sure the generator and oil pressure lights go out immediately. These are just a few of the Buyer’s Tips that the experts at The Beverly Hills Car Club recommend when inspecting any 1963 Porsche 356C Coupe.
