  • Porsche is famous for the careful development of its automobiles, so it is no surprise that the 1965 356C model, the last of the 356 series, is a highly developed and sophisticated automobile. Featuring visual improvements such as an outside fuel filler cap and the rear twin grilles over the engine compartment, they incorporated many of the design characteristics early Porsche buyers came to expect with its introduction.

    Shortcomings in design and execution had years to be identified, analyzed, massaged and eliminated. The Porsche flat four was close to bulletproof. Rear suspension revisions long since refined and perfected had rendered its handling characteristics nearly flawless. Additionally, these models further represent the pinnacle of the series as four-wheel disc brakes became standard items on the 356, as did ZF transmissions and upgraded high output engines with stronger internal components. Construction had matured until the cars’ fit, finish and function set the standard to which other manufacturers strived.

    The production Porsches existed in parallel with their racing counterparts, benefiting from the innovations of racing, but pursuing their own course toward meeting, and exceeding, the expectations of customers. To most Porsche enthusiasts, the C version of the 356 represents not only the last, but the best of the line.

    The 1965 Porsche 356C 1600 Cabriolet by Reutter featured here is finished in factory correct Ruby Red with a beautiful black interior and matching convertible top. This stunning 356 has been restored to Concours standards and is ready to be shown and driven. A recent engine out service was performed less than 100 miles ago by marquee specialists which includes a receipt for $6,000. Also accompanying this investment-grade 356 is its original owner’s manual, service booklet, service records, copy of Kardex, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and more. We are proud to offer this exceptional example to the most particular collector, investor, or enthusiast who demands the best. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013 and posting gains of 395-percent over the last 10-years.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
