June '54 Owner's Manual In English

#1 Post by frank darmiento » Tue Aug 18, 2020 10:50 am

I am looking for a June '54 Owner's Manual in English. It seems the original is pretty much impossible to find.
I heard there might be some factory repros out there and was wondering if
anyone might be able to point me in the right direction for one. Thanks so much.

In the June 1954 edition the artwork on page 31 is updated to show adjustable levers for the brake and clutch pedals.

Far as I know the June 1954 edition was used through the end of 356 car production in 1955.
When Porsche began delivering cars with 3-pc. case engines they added a sticker inside the owner's manual mentioning some important details about the new engines - - - -
