1951 Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabriolet

First launched in 1950, the Porsche 356 would grace the showroom floor of dealerships across the country until it was discontinued in 1965 and replaced by the Porsche 911 and 912 models. Easily one of the most recognizable Porsche models ever built, the Porsche 356 would see more than 76,000 units roll off the production line during its run. Today, while all 356 models are cherished, the early models are perhaps some of the most sought-after. As an owner of a 1951 356 Pre-A, you understand the appeal that this classic has with its curvaceous lines, simple styling and easy handling. If you’re looking to sell your 1951 Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabriolet, one of the easiest ways to verify its model-year to buyers is to look at the windshield and wheels. On the 1951 356 Pre-A you’ll find a two-piece windshield and 16-inch wheels. You’ll also find a new “shine down” license plate lamp with the light assembly mounted above, not below, the plate. These are just a few indicators that can help you prove the car’s identity to uninformed buyers.


1951 Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabriolet Seller’s Guide

While Porsche engines from this era are known for being generally long-lived, potential buyers will appreciate any records you have on your 1951 Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabriolet model’s restoration, repairs or maintenance. These records will give buyers confidence that the car has been well maintained, or will show what work still needs to be done. One of the downsides to the Porsche 356, that you’re probably already aware of, is its ability to rust. Rust plays a key factor in the overall condition of these early classic Porsche models. Be sure to document and point out any areas of rust or rust repair to potential buyers and be sure to reflect the condition of the car in your asking price. These are just a few of the Seller’s Tips for the 1951 Porsche 356 that will help you have a more smooth and stress-free selling experience.
