Porsche 356 Pre-A Specialist

Greg Newton Restorations not only restores the world's oldest Porsche cars but is also the largest manufacturer of reproduction 356 replacement panels in the southern hemisphere, furthermore, we fabricate a great majority of panels that are not remanufactured anywhere else in the world.

We pride our work on the fact that we fabricate entire panels, exactly as they were manufactured originally during the production years from when the cars were new. Many changes were made in the early years of body construction and we developed the tooling and fabrication processes to manufacturer all these panels in house.

Our brand new 356 replacement panels are always manufactured to the highest standards and are shipped worldwide. We also have a complete body build and construction jigging system to align every panel of the curvaceous little monocoque. Over the years we have obtained colour codes for not only original body colours but even for original colours used on components, such as Hand Jacks, Wiper motors, Engine accessories and other components. The Porsche 356 market has seen a healthy appreciation in both value and admiration from the growing classic car community, especially the Pre-A series of cars built between 1950 and 1955.

We are privileged to be able to restore and preserve these classic sports cars that express timeless contours and a mechanical design that has proven itself for over 70 years.
