Description

‘The 911 is the best Porsche ever – all the vices of the old suspension have been eliminate, and the modern offbeat styling should have a much broader appeal than the old bathtub shape. The overhead-cam, air-cooled flat 6-cylinder engine, the 5-speed all-synchro transmission, and the 4-wheel disc brakes are irresistible to anybody who ever felt a flicker of desire for any Porsche in the past.’ Car & Driver.

The first of countless upgrades to the perennial 911 came in 1966, two years after production had commenced, with the introduction of the 911S. Easily distinguishable by its stylish Fuchs five-spoked alloy wheels, the ‘S’ featured a heavily revised engine producing 160bhp. In 1967 the 911T (Touring) was introduced as a new base model, initially with the 2.0-litre engine in 110bhp form before gaining the 2.2-litre unit along with the rest of the range in 1969, by which time the 911’s wheelbase had been extended by 57mm to tame the sometimes wayward handling. Such was the 911’s success that within a few years Porsche was selling cars faster than it could build them, a state of affairs that led to a substantial proportion being manufactured by coachbuilder Karmann at its Osnabrück factory.

Registered in June 1969 as a Swedish specification, Karmann-bodied car, this lovely early non-sunroof 911T was delivered in the rare shade of Polo Red (only offered between 1969 and 1971) with a black interior.

Showing now 108,000 kms from new (the odometer was replaced at 95,000 kms, the new one reading 15,000 kms), the car covered a mere 3000 kms between 1984 and 1991.

In addition to extensive service history from its previous Swedish owner, during 2014 the body was taken back to bare metal, carefully restored, painted and reassembled using mostly original panels. According to the vendor the 2 litre flat 6 engine, fitted with twin weber carburettors, is said to be in very good condition, showing even compression readings on all cylinders. The transmission has been upgraded to the 901 five speed gearbox, which has been fully overhauled, and mated to a new clutch.

Chassis 119123097 is offered with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, all books and manuals, also its original tool kit.  A great buy for the Porsche enthusiast seeking a pretty yet highly useable early 911.

Eingeschrieben im Juni 1969 als eine schwedische Spezifizierung, Karmann-erbautes Auto, wurde dieser schöne 911T im seltenen “Polo Rot” (nur angeboten zwischen 1969 und 1971) mit schwarzem Interieur ausgeliefert.

Mit 108.000 km gefahren (Kilometerzähler wurde bei 95.000 km ersetzt, der neue zeigt 15.000 km an), ist das Auto zwischen 1984 und 1991 nur etwa 3.000 km gefahren.

Zusätzlich zur umfassenden Servicegeschichte von seinem vorherigen schwedischen Eigentümer, wurde die Karosserie 2014 sorgfältig restauriert, lackiert und mit größtenteils original Teilen wieder aufgearbeitet. Gemäß dem Verkäufer ist der 2-Liter “flat 6” Motor mit Doppelvergasern von Weber ausgerüstet und in einem sehr guten Zustand. Das Getriebe ist zu einem 901er 5-Speed-Getriebe aufgerüstet und überholt worden, und zu einer neuen Kupplung verbunden worden.

Fahrgestellnr. 119123097 wird mit einem Porsche Echtheitszertifikat übergeben, sowie allen Büchern und Handbüchern, und dem original Werkzeugkasten. Ein großartiger Kauf für einen Porsche-Liebhaber, der nach einem schönen und viel verwendbaren frühen 911er sucht.
