This matching-numbers, left-hand drive 911E was first registered on 1st June 1970 in San Francisco by Porsche America and was originally finished Burgundy with black interior (see Porsche Certificate of Authenticity on file). Imported into UK in the early 1980s and subsequently repainted in silver, it enjoyed two owners in this country before being acquired by the current vendor in October 2010. We are advised that the previous owner had spent over £5,000 on drive shafts, brake overhaul and various other parts with Camtune (invoice on file). Upon acquisition the car was completely stripped to assess the degree of restoration required. Parts found to be in need of replacement included the outer front wings, seals and front slam panel, but otherwise the car was not in bad condition (see restoration photographs on file). It was decided to return the 911 to its original colour (Burgundy 2424) and a high quality re-spray was carried out accordingly. The interior was in need of major refurbishment, the door cards, door bins, dashboard, rear parcel shelf and carpets all being renewed. The engine was completely stripped down and parts renewed wherever necessary at a cost of over £8,000 (see photographic record on file). A new stainless steel exhaust system and heat exchangers were fitted when the engine was reinstalled. The original Fuchs wheels have been completely restored and the 'dogleg' gearbox is said to be in good condition, with no noise or jumping out of gear. Only 800 miles have been since the engine rebuild and it is reported that the car drives beautifully and sounds amazing. Its restoration finally completed on 1st September 2011, 'CAU 281H' is taxed/MoT'd to August 2012 and comes with Swansea V5 registration document. Matching-numbers 911Es retaining their original mechanical fuel injection are now very rare, many having been used to make Carrera RSR re-creations, which makes this beautiful example of particular interest to collectors.
