356C COUPE UNRESTORED
We are actually very happy to have this unique car on offer. The supply of 356s is mostly made up of restored cars. Buying a car that has not been restored means buying a project which will require considerable amounts of time and money ... This car, however, is quite a different story. It is entirely original, unrestored, and in perfect condition! The body is sound as a bell and most of the paintwork is still the first paint. The mechanicals are fine too: the engine runs, the gears shift, and weâ€™re not even mentioning the way the car drives ... A rarity! The car was delivered in Zuffenhausen, Germany, in May 1964, to Mr Ward Higgins, an American citizen. Higgins had ordered the car with an electric sun roof and safety belts as appears from the invoice, which has been preserved. After the delivery of the car, Higgins set off on a tour of Europe. The tour, from Greece to Norway, while touching on the many countries in between, can be entirely traced from the maintenance invoices as they have also all been preserved. On 19 October 1964, the car was embarked on SS Teniers and shipped to Higgins residence in Berkeley, California. In this mild climate, Higgins kept the car until 2010. His commitment to the car shows from the incredibly large file that has been kept with the car. This extensive file, including purchase documents, maintenance and repair invoices, correspondence, manuals and maintenance booklets, is as rare as the car itself. It allows us to confirm that the 124,900 miles on the clock reflect the carâ€™s actual mileage. For sure, this is one of the best preserved Porsches 356.
