Recommended books for 356 c

#1 Post by Jason Parolini » Tue Feb 11, 2020 10:47 pm

Can you please recommend some books on the 356? Any and all books about the car including but not limited to history, model variations, maintenance, etc.. I do already have the drivers manual for my 356 c.

Thanks

Jason: there was a recent thread on this topic. Depending upon how involved you want to get involved in the maintenance of your 356, there are several books ranging frim the actual B/C workshop manual to books such as Elfrink's. I suggest checking out Block's Books, one of our own.

I have a LOT of 356 books ranging from the factory work shop and parts manuals to the books by Harry Pellow, Brett Johnson, et al.

I'm sure others will weigh in with their suggestions.

Thanks for the suggestions. Unfortunately, you are the only 1 to weigh in on my question about books on the Porsche 356. Anyone else out there on this great forum with suggestions for helpful and informative books on the 356?
