1953 PORSCHE 356 Pre A 1500 "bend disk" convertible

The 356 is the first production model from Porsche. While some vehicles were handcrafted in Gmünd, the actual series production began when the company relocated to Stuttgart in 1950. Initially, the 356 was produced from 1950 to 1952 with a two-part windshield ("split window"). From model year 1952, the car was equipped with a one-piece windscreen in a kinked design, which led to the model designation "bent window".

The vehicle in detail

According to the Porsche data card, this 356 1500 Pre A Cabriolet was delivered to the vehicle dealer Scania Vabis in Sweden in April 1953 as a demonstration vehicle. In the meantime, it was driven by the Swedish Prince Bertil, Duke of Halland, who afterwards – so it is said – bought a new blue Porsche every year. The car later came into the hands of the Swedish Porsche enthusiast and gentleman driver Gert Kaiser, who, among other things, entered his 550 Spyder at the Nürburgring and contested the Mille Miglia with his 356 Carrera. Existing documents show that the car was sold to Norway in 1986. In 2002 the car came to its current owner in Italy. Under his direction, the Porsche was fully restored to its delivery specifications. The engine number stamped in corresponds to the engine number listed on the data card (Kartex). Extensive documentation of the work carried out is available.
