Lot #1385 - Completed on September 15, 1964, this 1965 356SC Reutter Cabriolet represents the ultimate iteration of the 356C. It left the factory as a stripped-down road-going machine with only a handful of options: driver's-side outside mirror, tinted windshield and Michelin tires. It underwent a comprehensive restoration by a Porsche-specialty restoration facility, during which desirable options such as chrome wheels, Blaupunkt three-band radio, C steering wheel with wood trim and Carrera deluxe horn ring, and dash-mounted factory exterior temperature gauge were added. The interior was also changed to its present green leather fitment. This final evolution of the 356, featuring a 1.6-liter engine and 4-speed manual transmission, shows excellent fit and finish. It is accompanied by the owner's manual, tool roll, full-size chrome spare wheel and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.
