1965 Porsche 356 C Cabriolet – ‘One of One’
This 1965 Porsche 356 C Cabriolet was the only Orange 356 Cabriolet produced for the 1965 model year, which makes it a one-of-one automobile (information verified by its COA). This model has recently undergone a complete, bare-metal, Concours restoration wherein all drive-train and suspension components were completely refurbished by Carolina Coach Crafters in Mooresville, N.C. This model includes a brand new handcrafted leather interior and convertible top.
Our ‘65 356 is a turn-key, investment-grade vehicle that is ready to be showcased in the world’s elite Concours. It was recently recognized by FlatSix.com as one of their favorite 20 Porsches from Monterey 2016. It received a podium finish at Werks Reunion in 2016 and it was the recipient of the Palmetto Award at Hilton Head Island Concours d’Elegance 2016. This year, it was awarded best in its class, 356 Open, at Amelia Island.
The year of 1965 was the final year of production for the 356 model because Porsche was introducing the US market to its successor: the 911. Porsche continued to sell the 356 C as demand for the model was extreme in the early days compared to the heavier and more “civilized” 911.
Our 356 is the ONLY Continental Orange Cabriolet produced for the 1965 model year. It comes dressed in its striking orange exterior with a stunning black leather configuration.
No expense was spared in the restoration and every effort was made to preserve as many of the original components (down to nuts, bolts, etc.) versus replacing them with new ‘off-the-shelf’ parts. Many of the original components including the wheels were professionally re-chromed and are absolutely stunning. The black leather interior is brand new and was completed by one of the best in the business.
To put it simply, this car is flawless, this car is exceptional, and this car is waiting to take you on the ride of your life.
