Footnotes

  • The most historically significant of all Porsche models, so far, has been the 911, which was introduced in 1964 and, in much the same form, was to be the mainstay of Porsche production for more than 30 years, albeit constantly modified and uprated. With broadly similar layout to the 356, the 911 had a steel platform chassis with springing by torsion bars, Macpherson front struts and rear trailing arms, and flat-6 air-cooled engine and 5-speed transmission first seen on the 904. More than 40 years later, early 911s continue to be competitive on circuit or special stage.
    The 307939 chassis number stamped into the body shell in the correct place indicates that this short-wheelbase 911 was manufactured in Stuttgart in 1967 and would therefore have been one of only 40 right-hand drive cars imported into the UK in that year. The 2-door Coupe in light ivory (factory paint number 6604) with black leatherette interior and pair of fold-away occasional rear seats, as originally supplied, also has the original 2-litre engine running on Webers and 5-speed gearbox fitted as well as such factory options as Fuch alloys, grilles to accommodate auxiliary spotlights and detachable headrests on chromed brackets, rare items.
    Apart from Porsche Centre Silverstone maintenance receipts, also on file are a set of extremely detailed invoices recording a recent and most extensive restoration carried out at 89,866 mileage by Export 56 of Newport Pagnell which included a glass-out repaint in the correct ivory and much mechanical refurbishment, though with great adherence to preserving the original specification. Acquired directly from the early Porsche specialists by the present owner in August of last year, PRP 258D has only recently provided reliable and stylish transport to Le Mans where it was greatly admired by fellow pilgrims.
    For as any inspection during viewing for this auction should confirm this historic vehicle tax disc eligible fixed head with current MOT presents really well. With the indicated mileage having only risen to 91,492 when catalogued, the shell would appear to be structurally sound with bulkhead, floor, body panels and fit all good, both paint and bright-work virtually unmarked, part-original interior particularly impressive for the year, luggage stowage area above and below the carpeting presenting well and engine bay and ancillaries clean and tidy. As sourcing an early 911 in even fair cosmetic order becomes increasingly difficult, particularly one that can be enjoyed straightaway, an opportunity to land a rare and exceptional right-hand drive car such as this should not be missed.
