1955 Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabriolet

The 1955 Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabriolet saw approximately 270 units roll off the production floor. There are very few ways to distinguish a 1955 Porsche 356 Pre-A from the Porsche 356A. One way is by the new type of hood handle that emerged during 1955. It was a bigger and much longer handle. While it would also be used on the Porsche 356A models, if you can find a Pre-A body style example with the porsche 356A style hood handle, you’re most likely looking at a 1955 Porsche 356 model. It is always recommended that you authenticate any car you’re seriously considering purchasing. Many sellers take care of this and request a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity prior to selling. If the car you’re looking at does not have this certificate, dont be afraid to ask for one.

Looking to purchase a Classic Porsche?

Another concern when buying a 1955 Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabriolet should be rust. Most likely, unless you’re looking at a fully restored Porsche car, most 356 models will have rust damage to some extent. You should be focused on finding an example within your budget that has the least amount of rust and damage. Restoration costs can be quite high. Also, if you’re interested in a Cabriolet, be sure to inspect the convertible top. While the fabric is not necessarily the main concern, you should look for an example that has a properly functioning top. These are just a few of the tips that ER Classics has put together for the 1955 Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabriolet. If you’re thinking about buying a 1955 Porsche 356 Pre-A Cabriolet, ER Classics would be delighted to speak with you and to introduce you to their stock.
