CPR Classic is delighted to present a rare opportunity to own an
extremely early Porsche 356. This 1951 Porsche 356 Split-Window
1300cc Cabriolet is a stunning fully restored example that is
finished in its original color combination of Pascha Red over a
Beige leather interior.
This '51 Split-Window was completed on September 8th, 1951 and was
delivered to its first owner in Buenos Aries Argentina, where it
remained for over thirty years. The car was then purchased by a
German buyer who shipped it to the United States, prior to
exporting the car to Germany. Over the period between 1989-1990,
the car underwent a restoration that included a full mechanical
overhaul, new paint, and all new brightwork. The car remained in
this condition until it changed hands again in 2007. Several years
after its most recent owner purchased it, this 356 underwent a
complete ground-up restoration to a very high standard.
The car shows as numbers-matching with the correct 1300cc engine
installed. 1951 saw a significant engine upgrade from the 1950
model, which included an all-new crankshaft and cylinder barrels.
This, in combination with the increased displacement from 1.1 to
1.3 liters increased the horsepower from 36 to 44.
CPR Classic recently purchased the car and has gone through it
thoroughly, preparing it for concours shows and driving. It is now
sorted and presents as a concours example throughout. This
beautiful '51 Split-Window is available for viewing in our showroom
and is ready for delivery anywhere worldwide. If you are an avid
Porsche collector, an early 356 is a must-have to any complete
collection. This example would fill that role beautifully.
