History
Porsche Factory records show delivery in August of 1963 to H.J. Peters of Hamburg, Germany. The 356C Carrera 2 arrived in the United States in 1966. Ownership known from new.

Concours
Following the restoration, completed in 2014, it won awards at both the 2016 Dana Point Concours and 2016 Carmel-by-the Sea Concours on the Avenue. It was also shown at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering in 2016, confirming its outstanding condition.

Condition
A beautiful, matching-numbers C Series Carrera 2 Coupe with ATE disc brakes. Fantastic paint and body. All brightwork completed by marque specialist Victor Miles. Carrera engine expert Billy Doyle rebuilt the 4-cam engine. Meticulous, bare-shell restoration completed in 2014. It underwent full-engine service and other maintenance in late 2018.

Of Note
This is a pristine, matching-numbers example in striking colors with low-time since restoration. The C Series Carrera 2 were the last of the series and the most evolved with 4-wheel ATE disc brakes. Only 101 were built, making this one of the rarest and most desirable of the Carrera 2s.

Comments
One of the nicest 4-cam Carrera 2s to be found.
