The Porsche 356 Pre-A was released in 1949 and would be discontinued in 1965. During that time, more than 76,000 Porsche 356 models would roll off the assembly line. While all Porsche 356 models are considered valuable in today’s classic car market, perhaps the most coveted 356’s are the early ones know as the Pre-A. While this is not an official factory designation, it is a convenient way that Porsche Enthusiasts and the automotive press distinguish between the Porsche 356A models and the models that came before them – the Pre-A. The Porsche 356 is a classic that most buyers only long for. If you’re the owner of a 1951 Porsche 356 Pre-A Coupe, you can probably remember the feeling you got when you first hopped into the driver’s seat and called her your own. If you’re thinking about selling your 356, it is understandable that you may have questions or even doubts about whether or not you’re making the right choice. The Alex Manos team of California classic car dealership professionals understands the importance and significance these cars can have to their owners, and will work diligently to ensure that your expectations are exceeded.


1951 Porsche 356 Pre-A Coupe Seller’s Guide

The upside to the early Porsche 356 models is that their mechanics are generally long-lived. Your potential buyers, however, will likely want to have a third-party inspection performed on your 1951 Porsche 356 Pre-A Coupe to check for things like good oil pressure, oil leaks, smoke on startup, and any other mechanical issues. Some sellers choose to have an inspection prior to listing their classic for sale, which helps not only establish a value but also gives potential buyers the information to move forward with the sale. Rust, like in all classics of this era, is also a factor in determining the condition of your 356, which is directly related to value. It is best that you inspect the car prior to placing it for sale so that you have a good understanding of any rust issues.
