Freshly restored to the highest standards, this rare and highly desirable Porsche 356SC was given a comprehensive restoration from a bare metal tub free of any visible metal damage. The body received an extensively detailed paint and undercoating including under the dash and in all the jambs. From the new properly loomed wires, an authentic wiring harness was installed with restored instrumentation including the gauge faces and chrome bezels. The suspension had been restored with powder coated backing plates, steering arms, trailing arms and other items underneath the car with the proper looking finish all reinstalled with new components as available including the new Koni shocks, trailing arms bushings, brake lines, master cylinder with the calipers rebuilt and plated as when new. The original hardware to the car was refinished to as-new condition with cadmium plating and zinc oxide. With the rebuilt transaxle and shafts all detailed with one piece axle boots and proper clamps, the engine was reinstalled after a complete and proper machining of the case, crank shaft, connecting rods and cylinder heads with new valves and pistons with new cylinders, flywheel, clutch pressure plate and throw-out bearing. The mechanics were assembled with rebuilt Solex carburetors, new powder coated oil filter canister and fan shroud housing with a rebuilt generator and engine tin. Finished with the latest 356 style heater system exhaust configuration with a new muffler and pipes, the engine compartment presents today as the car was originally configured. The interior is new with proper German vinyl. The perforation of the seat material was done and then installed on restored seat pans with new pads and chrome hinges that had been disassembled, re-chromed and put back together. The steering column was removed and restored with new paint and bushings along with a restored turn switch indicator including the new chrome on its lever and was installed with an original LL wooden steering wheel. The radio has been sent out for restoration and original speaker grilles have been restored with functioning speakers and a red dot antenna installed. The gear selector locks in the reverse position and has been restored with a new key at the time of the gear shift assembly being restored with the re-chromed shift lever. The outside door handle locks have been restored with the buttons and handles being re-chromed after the pins of the lock were removed and replaced for assembling them onto the car with original keys and matched to the ignition switch as originally delivered. The fit and finish shows a high level of attention to detail, especially the body lines and overall quality of restoration workmanship. All new brightwork, factory marked Sigla windshield, weather stripping and moldings finish off the beauty of this 356SC. One man did all of the triple plated chrome finish on this car to achieve the best, blemish-free results possible. The bumper guards are restored originals, while the original horn grilles were restored to retain originality with new anodize bright dip. Completed with the hand cut plastic trunk liner for the 70-liter tank, the gold plated Porsche and SC emblems on the rear, the valve stem retaining wires on the tires, the factory decals, hand painted nuts and bolts as detailed from the original delivery and felt tip washers on the chrome door vent window pivots, the level of craftsmanship must be seen in person. Accompanied with the original tool kit, factory owner manual, Kardex Build Sheet and Certificate of Authenticity; this car meets investment-quality requirements.
