During its era, the 1950 Porsche 356 Pre-A Coupe started at $4,200, on par with the Cadillac prices of the day. Despite being quite expensive, the Porsche 356 found its niche market shortly after its debut. More expensive than the Triumphs and MGs of the day, yet certainly more sophisticated in styling, comfort and engineering, the 356 models successes on the racetrack would fuel its popularity in the European sports car space. Debuted in 1949, the 1950 Porsche 356 Pre-A Coupe would be the first Porsche production car to hit the streets; many of which were still being hand built at the Porsche facilities in Gmund, Austria. When production moved to Germany in the middle of 1050, models moved from aluminum bodies to steel bodies. If you own a 1950 Porsche 356 Pre-A Coupe, educated buyers will want to know which type of body your model has. The Alex Manos team of California classic car dealership professionals can help you answer this question.


1950 Porsche 356 Pre-A Coupe Seller’s Guide

The 1950 Porsche 356 Pre-A Coupe is rare and sought-after. To help your potential buyers with its authenticity, you can find the chassis number stamped in the trunk area in front of the tank. The engine number can be found on the generator stand and also on the crankcase itself, which can be found behind the fan housing. There is quite a bit of documentation out there on these early Pre-A 356 models. You can also check with the Porsche register to see if there is any history or information available on the car, which will help you in determining its value. Again, with industry connections across the country, the Alex Manos team can help you with these important and necessary steps to selling your classic. One other important Seller’s Tip is for you to know the location of any rust damage to your Pre-A. Like most cars of this era, there was little to no rust protection, and serious potential buyers will want to factor any costs of repair or restoration into their price. Be sure to have a grasp of any rust prior to placing your car for sale.
