The 1954 Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabriolet models would be among the last of the Pre-A designation before Porsche would introduce the first variant in 1955, the 356A. For some collectors, owning a Pre-A is a must, as it represents the raw and primitive feeling these first production models gave to their owners. During 1954, only 327 Cabriolet examples of the Porsche 356 Pre-A would be released, making up just a small fraction of the 2,303 total units manufactured that year.

As with the purchase of any classic car, you’ll want to ensure you have the 356 inspected thoroughly for rust, including placing the car on a lift to check the underbelly and frame. You’ll also want to check the car’s mechanics, if applicable. While these engines are known for being long lived and easy to work on, it is always good to know the overall condition of the mechanics so you can estimate any repairs that may need to be completed. Similarly, if you’re purchasing a Porsche 356 as a restoration project, you’ll want to ensure the car is as complete as possible.
