The 1964 Porsche 356C had only minor aesthetic changes from the previously released T-6 Porsche 356B model which it replaced, however new disc brakes brought about different wheels and hubcaps, as well as improved stopping power. In fact, the easiest way to distinguish a 356C from prior models is by the hubcaps; on the 356C they are smaller and flatter. In total, more than 14,000 Porsche 356C Coupes and Cabriolets were produced during the 1964 production year. For many collectors and enthusiasts, purchasing a 356C means owning the epitome of the 356 line, as it encompassed all the changes and upgrades that came along throughout the car’s 15-year production life. For those who are looking for everyday or occasional drivers, the 356C is also one of the most popular in the line due to exceptional reliability. When buying a classic Porsche 356, however, always be sure to inspect and fully understand the condition of the classic you’re purchasing. You’ll also want to confirm the Porsche’s originality and authenticity by matching engine and chassis numbers to official Porsche records. The Porsche 356 Registry is another great resource for learning information on a particular model.
In addition to learning more about the authenticity and originality of the 1964 Porsche 356C model you desire, always be sure to have a third party, pre-purchase inspection completed by a qualified mechanic. During this inspection, be sure to have rust-prone areas such as floorboards, suspension mounting points, longitudinal chassis members, and in the spare wheel area.
