Built in Zuffenhausen, Germany this US spec 356C was finished by the factory on July 8 th 1964. It immediately made the long trip to the port of Los Angeles, and then up to Gardner Motors in Fresno, CA. Its first owner, Paul Hendrickson of Fresno, CA, purchased the car with his wife on October 20 th 1964. Both were 59 when they bought the Porsche, and would own it until 1980. By 1980 the Hendricksons were 75 years of age and were having a difficult time getting in and out of the little car, so it found a new home with noted 356 restorer, Tim Goodrich of Grants Pass, Oregon.
Goodrich would own the car for about four years before selling it to Mike Moran, also of Oregon. During his ownership the car would receive an external repaint, and then an engine rebuild by Tim Goodrich. Moran would own the 356C until 2001, showing it often at numerous 356 events.
The next owner, Dave Hamann, who was an employee of Goodrich, purchased the car in 2001. He and is wife Cokie would participate in multiple PCA events with the 356C both in Oregon and California. Time came again in 2006 for the Porsche to find a new home, and it found one with Porsche expert and collector, Sam Cabiglio of California.
