We first crossed paths with this SC Cabriolet in early 2008 in a Seattle suburb from a long time 356 collector. I was purchasing my 356 SC coupe from Tom when his other 356’s came into the conversation. Tom told me he had purchased this Red SC Cabriolet from a local doctor on Mercer Island who used it as his sunny day car through the late 1990’s.
The 20+ year old red paint remains very good with little road wear to show for its seasonal drives. As we all know the sun doesn’t shine much of the year in the Seattle area so it was used sparingly. Tom had owned the car for more than ten years and had the interior redone for a summer drive with his wife to Vancouver, BC. Tom lamented about his interior guy having to sleep at the shop for a few nights to get it done on time for the trip. The leather seats and carpets have been hand sewn and fitted with the finest materials: English leather and German square weave carpets. He also added a wooden steering wheel at the time.
We purchased the car from Tom in 2011 and instantly sold it to a good client in Whistler, BC where it has remained garaged since. This SC has been used on nice days and gets parked for the long winters up on the mountain. We have been calling our previous clients trying to get a few of our exceptional cars back and were lucky enough to buy this 356 SC.
The Cabriolet has had a good tune-up and detailing, this SC is ready to go. This is an excellent 356 SC Cabriolet with its original trim pieces and toolkit accounted for. It is a rare find and will make its new owner very happy indeed.
