1968 Porsche 911 SWB
Chassis no. 11835507
Sold new in the Netherlands
Restored example
Offered in original colour, Polo Red

Odometer Reading: 100
MOT Expiry: Exempt

Delivered new to Porsche, Netherlands this 911SWB has spent much of its life in Europe and has recently been treated to a comprehensive restoration by marque specialists. Included in the restoration was a re-paint to the original colour, Polo red 6802, as well as a renovation of the engine and gearbox. A new black leatherette interior was also fitted. Reported to be in very good driving condition the engine bay and body work are equally impressive, with impeccable shut lines, the chrome bumpers being factory-standard aligned. Under the bonnet the engine bay maintains the theme with very clean paint and highly presentable ancillaries. Sitting inside is almost a time-traveller experience back to when this car was showroom-fresh, the trim, door cards and dashboard all present well and with the recently renewed underpinnings it makes for a very pleasant drive. Few 911s of this era are restored to such a level, and this example having been meticulously renovated would be at home in any serious collection. Offered with a sizeable history file including sundry invoices.
