THE PORSCHE 911

A modern classic if ever there was one, Porsche's long-running 911 arrived in 1964, replacing the 356. The latter's rear-engined layout was retained, but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the body shell and dropped the 356's VW-based suspension in favor of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement. In its first incarnation, Porsche's single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled flat six displaced 1,99cc and produced 130bhp; progressively enlarged and developed to today's modern 911.

Type 901 as it was originally named, has become one of the very few automobiles in history that can be identified by its silhouette. The purity of the 911's design lives on today in the profile of the newest Carrera coupes, and the loyalty of the Porsche enthusiast community world-wide is second to no other.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This stunning 911 was completed in Stuttgart on January 18th, 1966. The car left the factory wearing code 6603 Gulf Blue paint over a beige leatherette interior. The car was nicely optioned with a Webasto Gasoline heater, tinted windshield, wheels caps with crest and Phoenix tires. Recently, the car was treated to a complete restoration in which it was sprayed in its original shade of Gulf Blue, while the interior was nicely reupholstered in red leather with black carpeting. This is quite a nice upgrade over the original Beige interior the car was originally delivered with. The black leather dash is quite tidy and features an AM/FM radio, wood steering wheel, and wood dash paneling, both are in great condition. All of the chrome brightwork including the wheels caps, bumpers, and other accents are in excellent shape with a nice deep luster.

Since the completion of the restoration some years ago, this short wheelbase 911 has been driven sparingly and stored properly. The car is well sorted and operates nicely. Included in the sale are Porsche Production Specification certificate, jack, tool kit and driver's manual. The early 911 is considered by many enthusiasts as the purest of the company's air-cooled sports cars. With such a well-executed refurbishment, this Porsche is perfectly suited for tours, rallies and shows. However with as much attention paid to mechanics as aesthetics, this car could easily be an enthusiast's gorgeous driver. The opportunity to find such a great, early longnose 911 in this fantastic color scheme should be seriously considered by all 911 fans.
