1954 Porsche 356 Pre-A

The Porsche 356 Pre-A, the impetus for the creation of the illustrious and ageless Porsche 911, would begin production in 1949 with just a small collection of hand-built 356 models designed and manufactured using a wide range of Volkswagen parts. Little did Ferry Porsche know that his creation would become such an iconic classic, one that draws attention from buyers and collectors across the globe. They say imitation is the finest form of flattery and the Porsche 356 has seen its fair share of imitators throughout the years. If you’re the proud owner of a 1954 Porsche 356 Pre-A model – or any classic Porsche – and are toying around with the idea of selling it, you’ve come to the right place.

1954 Porsche 356 Pre-A Seller’s Guide

Similar to selling any classic car, the first step is preparing your 1954 Porsche 356 Pre-A for the sale. This can mean a number of things based on the condition of your car. If your car is an uncompleted restoration project with pieces sitting all over the garage, this means compiling the parts that are included with the sale, taking detailed pictures and making an inventory of the different parts and their prices so you can establish a value. If your car is a road-worthy 356, preparing for the sale may mean getting the car detailed, taking pictures, having an inspection of its mechanics to ensure its in good order, or simply taking it out for a spin. Secondly, you’ll want to gather any documentation that you have regarding ownership history, maintenance and restoration. These items can raise the value of your classic with buyers. You’ll also want to touch base with the Alex Manos team to discuss the current value of your car based on today’s classic car market. This market is volatile, so understanding what has recently sold can give you great guidance as you price you 1954 356 Pre-A.
