Silver with Black leather interior, Grey German square weave carpeting, Black top, Restored.

This 356 C Cabriolet, serial # 161729 comes with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity as well as records back to 1970.

This 356 C Cabriolet has had one California owner from 1966 to 1997 and the same owner in Florida from 1997 to 2006 upon his relocation. It has never seen snow or salt, it is original with never patched or welded floor pans, longitudinals, rockers, doors, panels, etc.

The original matching numbered engine is gone, it has been replaced with a hot-rodded 1969 912 motor with big-bore kit, counter weighted crankshaft, mild camshaft and dual Weber 40 mm carburetors. This engine makes approximately 120 hp, it is fast and a joy to drive and has approximately 1,000 miles since being built. The exterior of this 356 C Cabriolet has been prepared to European delivery trim without the large chrome number guards, this along with the original Abarth exhaust muffler gives this 356 a killer Carrera GT cosmetic look. The only other non standard items are 5 1/2ö wheels and Motorlita steering wheel.

Absolutely everything is currently working on this car, all lights, accessories, all instruments, original radio, even the clock. This 356 still has its original 6-volt electrical system and all original wiring is intact and unmolested.

This is a super solid and properly restored and maintained example for the Porsche enthusiast.
