1965 Porsche 356C Coupe Is A One-Owner Beauty

With just one family since 1965, this 356 C looks better than new

  • Car’s been in same family since it left the showroom

  • After a full restoration, looks better than new


It’s almost sad, but this is a tremendous opportunity for the right buyer. A wonderful 1965 Porsche 356 that’s been in the same family since new, living in Dallas, TX, and has had an extensive restoration at some point in the car’s journey.

The 356 was the first production car from Porche, coming to market in 1948. In 1955 it was upgraded to A-spec, in 1959 the B’s arrived, and then from 1963-onward the modernized 356 C cars arrived boasting disc brakes all around as well as Porsche’s most powerful engine at the time.

1965, like this car, was the last year for the 356 (apart from a dozen specials made the next year for a fleet customer), making this car one of the newest 365s around. It’s for sale in Mecum’s October Dallas auction (via AutoEvolution) and it looks like an outstanding example of the classic bathtub Porsche.

The listing is short on details but says that it was sold in Dallas new, and has always been in that city in the same family. That means it has some impeccable paperwork like the dealer invoice and window sticker, original purchase agreement, and a whole stack of service history.

Clearly in too good condition to be as new, this 1600cc four-speed car was the subject of “extensive restoration” says the ad, and it looks as clean as new. Heck, it looks like it’s wearing the original license plate from 1965!

With 356 values not showing any signs of fading, and the exceptional history of this car, it is likely that this 356 C will sell for well into the six-figures at auction. Here’s to the car seeing another 55 years with a second loving family.
