This owner's manual supplement covers
 only the B 1600 Carrera 4-cam engine, not the rest of the car. The

(M&M N/A).

$348.00,
the highest price I have seen for this workshop manual
 which covers all 356-B's and C's. Later reprints of this manual do
 not have the distinctive "356 B/C" on the cover and have tan
 section dividers rather than black. The latest versions have gray
 vinyl binders rather than maroon. (M&M N/A).

 10/9/07:  This "356-A Factory Owner's Manual" sold on Ebay for
 
$294.00US!

 bringing high prices for Sellers!

 10/1/07:  Because of the sheer number of 356-B's & 356-C's the

This may be due to
 the fact that it is a French language version.

 9/29/07:  This "Single Sheet Flyer" for the 356 Pre-A Speedster
 sold for
$145.00US!

 but this price doesn't show it.

 9/26/07:  This "356-A Owner's Manual" sold on Ebay for the very
 high price of
$238.00US!
It was described as in perfect condition.
 
One has to wonder whether these are genuine original manuals,
 
OR recent reproductions, which have nearly clear spiral binding.

 originals manuals.

$398.00US!
It was advertised as "authentic", unlike many that

 out there and they are hard to tell from originals!

 for
$330.00US!

 similar.
(M&M N/A).



.

 9/3/07:  This "VW-356Porsche Parts Interchange List" sold on
 Ebay for
$370.00US! It is not clear if this is a Porsche factory item
