Broad Arrow Auctions Is Selling One of 30 1964 Porsche 356 Cs Ever Built

A meticulously restored 1964 Porsche 356 C Carrera 2 Cabriolet, previously owned by racing team owner Bob Estes, is going up for auction.

In the world of classic sports cars, few names stir as much excitement as Porsche, and an upcoming auction is set to feature a particularly rare gem: a 1964 Porsche 356 C Carrera 2 Cabriolet. Known for its sophisticated engineering and classic styling, the Porsche 356 C Carrera 2 is a collector's dream, and this particular model adds an extra layer of allure due to its rich history and limited production.

Originally delivered to Bob Estes, a renowned American race team owner and collector, this Carrera 2 Cabriolet is one of only 30 ever made. It boasts a complete restoration to its original Ruby Red color, under the guidance of noted Porsche collector Warren Eads. The vehicle's engine was expertly rebuilt by Willison Werkstatt, a Florida-based specialist known for his work with four-cam Porsche engines. This car combines rarity with impeccable restoration, making it a standout piece at any classic car auction.

The Porsche's storied history adds to its value. Bob Estes, its first owner, was deeply embedded in Southern California's automotive and racing scenes, founding a successful car dealership and managing race teams that competed across various prestigious events, including the Indianapolis 500 and Carrera Panamericana. This 356 C, equipped with a Reutter hardtop featuring a built-in electric sunroof, a period-specific luxury, reflects the opulence and cutting-edge design that Porsche is known for.

With its blend of performance prowess and luxury, this Carrera 2 Cabriolet not only tells the story of a significant era in racing history but also represents a pinnacle of automotive craftsmanship and heritage. As it goes under the hammer, it continues to embody the enduring legacy of Porsche's innovation and the prestige of its racing pedigree. This auction offers a unique opportunity to own a piece of automotive history that is as much an art piece as it is a testament to Porsche’s engineering excellence.
