1967 Porsche 911 S TargaThis 1967 Porsche 911 S is one of just 483
examples produced for the first year of the Targa's availability.
It was built on March 1st of 1967 and originally finished in Polo
Red with black leatherette upholstery. It rides on Dunlop tires and
was originally ordered with tinted windshield and side glass. It
was shipped to the United States and delivered new through Porsche
of America (PoAC) in Teaneck, New Jersey. The original owner is
recorded as the eventual 11-time U.S. rally champion John Buffum.
His career included 117 national rally wins and also contested
select European rallies, including the 1969 Monte Carlo Rally with
a Porsche 911. The car was given a complete nut-and-bolt
restoration in 2010 by Classic Showcase after which it entered a
prestigious private sports car collection, before coming into the
car of its current owner. It is believed that early in the car's
existence, the original engine, numbered 961438, was replaced by a
California-based Porsche dealer with a correct 901/02 911
S-specification unit. The engine current installed in the car falls
within the documented engine-number range for 1967.
