After 1968, LH and SWB, were two abbreviations that when combined would soon belong exclusively to the description of one car and one car only, the earliest iteration of Porsche’s iconic 911. From 1963 to 1968 Porsche produced a body that wore a long hood (LH) and was mated to a chassis with a distinctive short wheel base (SWB). During this time, Porsche continued to grow their already legendary status by building variations of the 911 that would compete in—and win, practically every racing event in the world. In addition to an astounding motorsports resume, the German marque quickly grew to be known as the manufacturer of one of the most fabled and widely desired sports cars in history the 911.
This extremely original, 1965 Porsche 911 is finished in its correct specification of Light Ivory over a Tan leather interior. With its production beginning prior to the summer break of ’65 and completion in August of that year, chassis 302161 did not receive a U.S. until March of 1967, which indicates a strong possibility that this was a factory/dealer demonstration vehicle.
The patina on this this beautiful early 911, speaks to the honesty of the car while contributing to the story of this well loved example. Accompanied by the original owner’s manuals and a copy of the Kardex, this ‘60s survivor is currently in fine running order powered by it’s matching 2.0L flat-six and can be enjoyed as-is or would lend itself as the perfect refresh/restoration candidate.
