The Motorcar Offered

This silver Targa, with black leather interior, was originally acquired on May 4, 1970 by Irving Rose of Northbrook, Illinois in Stuttgart, Germany through the Tourist Delivery Program. Rose traded the car through Bryntesen Porsche-Audi Inc. of Hinsdale, Illinois with registration receipts showing Bryntesen selling it to Michael Burns in February 1978. The next keeper of the Porsche was Raymond Paulis followed by David Thompson, although Thompson's date of acquisition is unknown.

Purchased by the vendor in the summer of 2004 with the intention of restoring it; it instead has sat in climate-controlled, dry storage since 2004 with little progress made. The original MSO and other paperwork are available with the car together with the owner's manual plus sleeve and Blaupunkt radio service manual.

Substantially complete, unmodified from original specification, and with only minor damage to the passenger door, this 911E is a wonderful base for restoration. The chassis appears to be remarkably straight and intact, showing penetrating rust in only a few places like the driver's side battery box, and the engine is free but not currently running. The car was easily pushed out of storage once one front brake caliper was released. The interior is largely complete but dirty and worn.

With early Porsche 911 continuing their upward trend, this rare 911E Targa is an excellent opportunity to acquire a lovely, documented car that will provide many happy miles following a thorough restoration.
