A lightweight, nimble-handling sports car that quickly launched into iconic status, the Porsche 356 Pre-A models are some of the most sought-after in the Porsche classic lineup. The 1953 Porsche 356 Pre-A Coupe (and other Pre-A models) are designated “Pre-A” because they were the first generation of 356 models that came before the 356A. Enthusiasts and the automotive press came up with the term “Pre-A” as to not confuse the two. Several slight changes happened to the 356 Pre-A during the 1953 model year. The turn signals were moved directly below the headlights and beehive taillights would replace the round and rectangular ones on the previous models. If you’re thinking about selling your 1953 Porsche 356 Pre-A Coupe, little details like these will help buyers authenticate your model. With so many kit cars and replicas of the 356 out there, it is easy to understand why they would want to do that. Especially with the value of the 356 steadily increasing.


1953 Porsche 356 Pre-A Coupe Seller’s Guide

Depending on the completeness of the car you are offering – whether it’s a rolling chassis or completely restored showpiece – buyers will have different levels of what they will expect as far as condition goes. Some buyers will want a perfect condition model where no rust is accepted and where the car is in as original a condition as possible. On the other hand, there will be buyers looking for a great candidate for restoration and even those looking for donor cars that can be parted out for their current restoration project. No matter what the condition of your 1953 Porsche 356 Pre-A Coupe, the Alex Manos team would like to speak with you. They are always on the lookout for great classics to add to their collection and will accept a wealth of different makes, models and conditions.
