The 1955 Porsche 356 Pre-A was the last model of production prior to the release of the 356A. For many collectors and enthusiasts, this is the best Porsche 356 Pre-A model to purchase because it features all the advancements in both technology and styling that came down during the first-generation of production. There are a few interesting ways to show that your car is in fact a 1955 Porsche 356 Pre-A. First, a new type of hood handle emerged during 1955: a bigger and much longer handle that bears the Porsche Crest. This would be used later on the 356A models. However, if you show that you have a Pre-A body style with a 356A hood handle, this is one way of authenticating your 356. Another very simple way to show your car is a 1955 model is the use of “Continental” script on the front fenders. As with the previous models, if you’d like to authenticate your 356 even more, you can pull your engine and chassis numbers and check them against the Porsche Registry. Regardless of how you prove your 1955 Porsche 356 Pre-A is an original, you can guarantee that your car will draw attention from buyers across the globe.
