An especially significant year for the Porsche 911, 1972 saw the introduction of a new Type-915 manual transmission and a unique external oil filler lid (Ölklappe) which was discontinued the following year. This modified 911T has been refinished in Light Yellow over a black leatherette interior with aftermarket leather Recaro seats and a roll bar. It is said to have undergone a host of mechanical modifications including a 3.2-liter engine swap from a 1985 Carrera, upgraded brakes and suspension, and an OEM Porsche limited-slip differential. Accompanied by extensive documentation, this tastefully modified long-hood 911 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Colorado.
Referred to as an “Ölklappe”, this 911T is distinguished as a 1972 model by the external oil filler lid mounted behind the passenger door on the rear quarter panel. This modified example has been refinished in its factory-specified shade of Light Yellow with contrasting black Porsche logo side stripes. Details include a driver’s side mirror, aftermarket 9Eleven Raven S headlights, aftermarket fog lights, a 911S-style front bumper, a louvered rear decklid, and polished quad exhaust outlets. It rides on factory 15” Fuchs forged alloy wheels dressed in Laufenn G FIT AS tires from 2021. The seller notes a few minor rock chips on the front bumper. Detailed images are provided in the gallery.
The cabin presents black leatherette and features leather Recaro bucket seats, a roll bar, an aftermarket aluminum shifter with a wooden shift knob, a wood-rimmed three-spoke steering wheel, roll-up windows, fabric door pulls, a rear seat delete, and Coco floor mats. All gauges and accessories are reported to be working properly.
This 911T features an air-cooled and fuel-injected 3.2-liter flat-six engine which was borrowed from a 1985 Carrera and installed in 1997. Power is sent to the rear wheels through its original 915/02 5-speed manual transmission. Additional upgrades are said to include a Fabspeed High-Performance Airbox Cover, Porsche OEM limited slip differential, upgraded brakes, and an upgraded suspension. The seller reports that the car has been driven approximately 500 miles since its last oil change in February 2023.
This sale will include a clean title, spare tire, tool kit, car cover, and extensive documentation.
The seller would like you to know: “I have owned this car since December 2022. I purchased it from Porsche Tucson where it was thoroughly gone through. After I purchased I immediately sent it to Porsche of Colorado Springs to have it gone through and an oil change was done. I also had 9 Eleven headlights installed because I sometimes drive at night and like good lighting. I have owned 11 different Porsches in my life. This is my favorite. Because of recent medical issues, I have to sell the car.”
