The Porsche 911

The Porsche 911 has become the most popular and longest-lived sports car in history, and with good reason. Its familiar profile has remained almost unchanged over half-a-century, and is instantly recognizable everywhere in the world. The light, powerful, and somewhat visceral six-cylinder 911 was unveiled in 1963 as the successor to the popular 356 series, and production for the 1965 model year began soon afterward.

Only 3,421 examples of the "O"-series 911 coupe were produced for 1967. Weighing less than 2,400 pounds and boasting a sophisticated torsion bar suspension with front McPherson struts, rack-and-pinion steering, and large disc brakes all around, the 911 was quick and agile, soon becoming a sought-after platform both for everyday motoring and track competition.


The Motorcar Offered

While its early ownership history is unknown, this very attractive 1967 911 coupe appears to have spent its life in California. It has been in the possession of the San Francisco Bay Area consignor, a long-time collector of short-wheelbase 911s, for the past 15 years. It was recently treated to an intensive two-year cosmetic and mechanical restoration. The consignor informs us that the 911 was in non-running condition when he acquired it, and the restoration included installation of a new front suspension pan. The body was stripped to bare metal and resprayed its original color of 6604 Light Ivory. The floorpan was correctly undercoated. The seats were completely rebuilt, including new padding. The black leatherette interior with off-white headliner and charcoal velour carpeting were supplied by Autos International. The reclining mechanisms were re-chromed. All the instruments were rebuilt by North Hollywood Speedometer. The odometer was re-set to zero; the car's original mileage is unknown. All switches and controls are original; other parts were either replaced with new OEM or good used or rebuilt items, and replated where necessary.

The two-liter opposed air-cooled six, number 909869, and the five-speed transaxle, number 130 676, are original to this car, adding to its desirability. Both were completely rebuilt by the consignor to factory specifications, as were the four-wheel disc brakes. The factory's Certificate of Authenticity states that this car was originally fitted with a radio antenna and speaker, but a radio was not installed (a common practice for the period), and the car is presented in that form today, with a correct factory blank panel on the dashboard.

The consignor has installed a set of very hard-to-find Bosch H-1 twin-bulb headlights and a rear-window wiper assembly, both period-correct. New door locks were installed, matched to the ignition key. This car left the factory with silver-painted 4 ½-inch-wide steel disc wheels with chromed hubcaps as it wears today, giving it the pure look of an unmodified car of the period. The hubcaps supplied are adorned with attractive full-color enameled Porsche crests, while a correctly-dated steel spare wheel, jack, and tool roll complete the package. Early 911s are now highly sought-after not only for their design but for their ease of use and pleasing driving experience, and 306528 is one of the nicest that has come our way. It is certain to provide many miles of enjoyable driving for its new owner, as well as the opportunity for display at Porsche club Concours events.
