The vehicle in detail

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.
