The 1954 Porsche 356, part of the unofficial Pre-A designation, is one of the early 356 model-years that draw collectors from across the country. Offered in the popular Speedster type, as well as the Roadster and Coupe, the 1954 356 was part of approximately 7,726 Porsche 352A cars produced from 1950 to 1955. During this time, the convertibles were the hot ticket and often comprised more than 50% of total production. This was especially true in the Southern California market where buyers fell in love with the classic styling of the 356 and its iconic beauty. Introduced in late 1953, the Speedster was an instant classic. Max Hoffman, America’s sole importer of Porsche at the time, had advised Ferdinand Porsche that a low-cost, open-top model would do well – and he proved to be right! There is no way that Max could have foreseen the interest and demand these cars would bring over the decades that followed. What was your reason for buying a 1954 Porsche 356?


1954 Porsche 356 Seller’s Guide

To prepare for the sale of your 1954 Porsche 356, there are a number of things you can do to get your classic ready. If you are selling a completed restoration or are advertising the car as mechanically sound, you need to make sure the car is in good mechanical shape. The more valuable your car is and the better its overall condition, the more obvious small defect will be to the savvy buyer when he carefully inspects it. You can prevent objections by taking care of these defects and by having the car inspected by a third party prior to sale. Of course if your Porsche 356 is an unfinished project, barn find or body, preparing the car for sale can mean everything from pulling it out from under a heap of junk in the garage to putting extra parts in a box to go with the sale. Doing these things ahead of time saves valuable time and makes the transition as smooth as possible. These are just a few of the Seller’s Tips that the team at recommends.
