For the first seventeen years of its life, Porsche built just one road car, and that was the 356. You could choose different body styles, colors and a few engines, but the 356 was it. By the early 1960s, the car was becoming rather antiquated and the pushrod four cylinder engine was at the end of its development life.
Under the internal type number 901, Porsche developed a completely new GT car that was and evolution of the 356 but with better visibility, more shoulder room and an overhead cam 2.0 liter flat six-cylinder motor with about 40 more horsepower than a 356 Super. Early 911s had much of the vintage charm of a 356, including chrome trim inside and out.
Understood to have had only three-owners from new, this 911’s third owner was a well-known and respected New Jersey Porsche collector. Having no rust and always having been a cared for 911, in this ownership and approximately eight years ago, this 911 was treated to a comprehensive restoration by New Jersey Porsche specialist Gene Kirschner, Auto Haus who performed all mechanicals with Tuxedo Motorsports performing the cosmetics. Due to this 911’s excellent condition prior to restoration, it was decided to keep its superb originality wherever possible. Other than the driver and passenger seats having been recovered, the remainder of the interior is original and absolutely excellent in every way.
This 911 is 100% correct as per its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, it is matching numbers and complete with correct and original tools and manual. Early 911’s are rarely found with in this condition and with excellent provenance from new.
