1965 Porsche 911

1965 Porsche 911, Beautifully Restored, Matching Numbers, Top-Shelf Example!

This gorgeous and rare first year 911 started as an excellent California black plate survivor before the owner sent it out to one of the World's foremost authorities on early 911's for a NOS-part-filled professional restoration.  The results are simply stunning and the car is both beautiful and a great performer on the road.  We are confident that this is one of the finest examples of these special and legendary early 911's currently in the United States.

The paint, body, and chrome are absolutely first rate and it is finished in the factory original color of Polo Red.  The paint job alone cost $12,000 and that was starting with a very dry, straight, and clean original California car.  All of the door and body gaps are clean and even as you can see as well.  It has been driven sparingly and garage kept since the completion of the restoration so it still presents excellently.  The original key is still present and works both doors, too.

The interior was very faithfully and completely restored including locating the difficult-to-find proper hounds tooth material for the inserts on the seats.  The fit and finish on the upholstery, carpeting, door panels, and headliner is excellent as well.  The dash gauges are original while the speedometer was professionally restored at the time of the restoration.  Therefore the 435 miles showing on the odometer are the actual total miles it has been driven since the completion of the restoration.  The tachometer needle does jump a bit so it will eventually need to be sent out for restoration to function as smoothly as original.

Mechanically this 911 is an excellent driver and features the factory original matching number flat 6 cylinder 2 liter engine and 4 speed manual transaxle.  The original Zenith carburetors were swapped out in the very common fashion in favor of a set of Webers which deliver better and more reliable performance.  No need to worry, the original Zeniths will also be included in the sale.  The engine and transaxle were completely rebuilt at the time of the restoration and many NOS parts were used in the process.  The wheels are proper 15 inch chromies with the hard-to-find correct early 911 hubcaps, too.  The tires are nice Michelin radials that still look new and have excellent tread as well. 

This 911 would be an awesome addition to any collector's stable.  Thanks!
