Have no idea what happened to my previous response.
BLOCKS-BOOKS.com has stock of both
Edition one
&
Hard cover, signed and numbered rev 2 (reproduction is better than the soft back rev 2).

It would be great to see a new version of your book Brett.
Am happy to give you any information I can from across the pond. :)

So, what do you think? Good idea? Bad idea? Long overdue idea?


Brett,
I've resisted making this recommendation thinking it could lengthen the process - but it could also make things a bit easier on your end. Think about a Version IV layout with divisions for each model of 356s. Part 1 for pre-As, part 2 for As, Part 3 for Bs, etc. Rather than go through the evolution of various components and then skipping to the next component; layout each model's chapter identically with specifics applicable to that model. Part 1 - pre-A engines, pre-A transmissions, pre-A chassis, pre-A instruments, etc.; Part 2 - A engines, A transmissions, A chassis, A instruments, etc., etc.

Looking forward to seeing this get underway and helping if needed. I have two pre-As & an A and tons of photos at your disposal.
Best,

I'm in, I would like to contribute to the pre-a stuff. How do we get started?
I am sure all of us know of one car that is completely original, IF we can get the owners to
co-operate. Could we document one car from each year and each discipline?

There have been many body/sheet metal changes/differences over the years and I would certainly be able to help in your endeavor of #IV authenticity. This would be a very interesting project
