We are pleased to offer this 1966 Porsche 911 Coupe finished in Black over a black leatherette interior. Completed at the factory on April 26th 1966, this Coupe is among the earliest Porsche 911s and features a 2.0L flat-six engine paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox as well as a rare factory-optioned Webasto heater. This 911 was acquired by the current owner in 2018 after being refurbished with new paint and several notable services. Accompanied by a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this early short-wheelbase 911 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of California.
This 911 came factory finished in Black (6609) and features chromium-plated bumpers and trim, pop-out quarter windows, a driver-side mirror, and gold rear lettering with an angled “911” badge offset to the right of the decklid. Another distinctive characteristic of early Porsche 911s are the silver wiper arms parked on the passenger side of the windshield. The car is said to have been refinished in its original color in October of 2015 followed by the replacement of the front and rear windshields in 2016. The roof, front cowl, and windshield frame were reportedly refinished once again in April of 2017, detailed images are provided in the gallery. The 15” Fuchs wheels come with polished faces and a set of 2021 Vredestein Sprint Classic tires sized 185/70.
The cabin is upholstered in black leatherette with matching carpets and woodgrain trim spanning across the dashboard. The factory-optioned Webasto gas heater has been retained, and an upgraded RetroSound radio has been installed with replacement fittings. The black door panels were replaced in 2019 and the seller reports the speedometer, odometer, and oil temperature gauge were repaired in October of 2017.
The air-cooled 2.0L flat-six engine is paired with a 5-speed manual transaxle sending power to the rear wheels. The replacement engine was sourced from a donor 911 of the same model year and the seller reports the carburetors were overhauled in 2016 along with the installation of new rear spring plate bushings, spark plugs, ignition wires, and a new distributor cap and rotor. The fuel tank and sending unit were replaced in 2017, and the fuel pump was replaced by the current owner in 2020 along with a rebuild of the alternator. Some records are provided for reference in the gallery along with images of the undercarriage and compression test results.
This sale will include a clean title.
