In 1970, the C-Series 911 was introduced with a larger bore to give a capacity of 2165cc, producing 125bhp and now badged as a “T”. Alterations to suspension points improved the handling and gave the steering a better on-centre feel.
Delivered new in 1515-G Irish Green, this matching numbers 1970 2.2 Karmann is an excellent example of the sought after 911 T which was first registered in 1970, and was optioned with US Equipment and a tinted windscreen.
The history file goes back to the 1980s, when extensive work was carried out by the previous owner on the car. We are advised receipts of this are available in the cars file. Most recently, after being repatriated to the UK, the car has received its second restoration by a marque specialist; work included new floors, with a bear metal paint respray. The interior upholstery was renewed (the original door pockets were retained), and still remains in excellent condition.
Mechanically, the brakes and hoses were renewed and the car received light engine work. Mechanically, we are advised the car performs excellently. It has been fitted with 15 inch Fuchs wheels and new tyres – as one would expect, it runs and drives very well. The car is equipped with the original jack, owner’s manual and spare tyre, as well as a detailed history file and Certificate of Authenticity. In excellent all round order, this is the perfect car for the budding Porsche collector – to be used and enjoyed.
