1951 Pre-A typ 369 1100cc 2pc. Porsche Engine / Video

Fired up this 1100cc beauty/beast today! This "matching numbers" per KARDEX 356 Pre-A engine is going into an early 1951 Split windshield Adria Blue Metallic coupe. Many details in this engine are different than the "common", post 1952 bent window 356 cars. Very difficult to build since Porsche made very few samples and many parts got changed over the years so authenticity is nearly impossible to document correctly. "Via con Dios, Cheers Amigos!"

Here's the You Tube video of this engine running: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdBpPsw_7xA
