Buying a 1951 Porsche 356

1951 Porsche 356The first of the Porsche 356 models, often designated the Pre-A's, run from the beginning of 1950 to September 1955 and can be most easily identified by their windscreen. The Pre-A Porsche models were produced with a two-piece windscreen that had a rubber dividing seal down the center up until April 1952. From 1952 to the start of the 356A models, buyers will find 356 Pre-A's with a single piece of glass, however these can be distinguished by their bent v-shape. Yet another indication you are looking at an early Pre-A 356, such as the 1951 Porsche 356, is the small rectangular rear lights. These are just a few of the Buyer's Tips that the team at The Beverly Hills Car Club can offer you when searching for an early model Porsche 356 for your collection. With the Pre-A, four-cylinder models being some of the most sought-after collectors cars on the market today, being able to identify them on the spot is key to a successful investment.
