The Original 911 series is often referred to as the most successful
competition racing cars of all time. They were winning everything
from Le Mans, Hill Climbs, famous rallys to even club sport racing
of the time. It appeared Porsche had something figured out with its
rear-engine, SWB design. Not to mention it put out a ton more power
with the same displacement as other manufacturers. It was initially
dubbed the "901", however Peugeot protested on the grounds that in
France hit had exclusive rights to that for another automobile. I
wont get in to too much of the Porsche History here as most people
that are looking at this ad claim to know more than there fellow
Porschefile so here are some of the details on the car itself. It
was built January, 2 1969 and was sold new in Huntington Beach, CA
on July 3, 1969 where it remained with the first owner until around
1974 when it was sold to a gentleman in Michigan. It appears that
the first major engine overhaul was done at Williams Porsche of
Lansing in 1978 with receipts in hand. It was driven a couple more
years until it was stored in a cottage garage for nearly 30 years
getting driven on occasion. It then traded hands again, this time
needing a restoration. After consulting several Porsche people and
professionals, it was determined to only give the car a Mechanical
restoration and leave everything else alone. It was determined that
the car was completely original down to the paint. Yes, there is
some cosmetic rust issues in some of the normal spots but this is
by no means a mess. It is still very presentable. A full
mechanical, engine out restoration was done, including top end,
carbs, valves etc...all rubber, wheel cylinders, brakes, linkages
and assorted other odds and ends that totaled around $15,000.00 was
just completed this spring. It has numbers matching engine and
trans as indicated on the Porsche COA and pictures to back it up.
The Targa top is still original with the exception of the headliner
being replaced due to it falling apart. The rest of the interior is
100% original. I have the original owners manual and keys, the
radio still works as it should and the car runs fantastic. This is
a must see if you are a collector or if you just want a 911 that
everyone at a PCA event will not stop talking about. We all know
what Restored 911's go for but that's because finding an original
one is near impossible to find. Do yourself a favor and come check
this one out. It is priced to sell.
