1953 Porsche 356 Coupe Vehicle Profile

1953 Porsche 356
Coupe
The first fifty cars were hand built with aluminum bodies hand formed over wooden 'bucks' in Gmund, Austria. The style 356 was produced between 1950-1955 and is now known as the 'Pre-A' to differentiate it from the 356 A that began production in October of 1955. Porsche has a history of continuous refinement dating back to the first days of automobile production and the Pre-A 356 was no exception. One of the changes to this body style was going from a 'split windshield' that had two pieces of glass separated by a metal strip drown the center to this model referred to as the 'bent windshield.'

Total production of the 356 was 78,000 worldwide between 1950 and 1965. This vehicle is thought to be the oldest registered driving 356 in the state of Oregon.
