You’ll want to authenticate any potential purchase by verifying the chassis and engine numbers match those of Porsche records, and you’ll want to verify the completeness of the example. These early Porsche 356 models can be quite expensive to restore, as parts and body panels can be difficult and costly to find. Buyer’s will also want to take into consideration the history of the car and whether or not it has maintenance and restoration records to backup any claims.
