Being offered up for auction is this pristine 1967 Porsche SWB 911. The car was fully restored between 2016-17 by the seller, a seasoned Porsche restorer, who until recently owned his own shop. The Slate Gray exterior (reminiscent of Steve McQueen's last special order Porsche) shines beautifully. The black interior features custom houndstooth inserts and a perforated white headliner.
This early 911 body was purchased by the seller for a client back in 2016. He was summoned to build and finish the car in Slate Gray to match the clients GT3. New floor boards were installed and a complete restoration was underway. Upon completion of the build, the builder/seller subsequently took possession of the car. The seller states that the chassis (#308199) was undamaged when purchased.
According to the seller, every part of this 911 has been restored, replaced or rebuilt. The photos show in detail this car to be in fantastic condition. The dash face features brushed metal trim and VDO instrumentation with an 8k-rpm tachometer, a 150-mph speedometer, and an analog clock. The interior looks crisp and built to a high quality.
The exterior brightwork was replaced and/or polished and as a result, shines beautifully. Correct polished hubcaps finish off the chrome wheels and are wrapped with vintage-style Michelin XZX tires.
The seller has reported that this 1967 911 earned a “Best of the 60s” award at an all-German car show in Boerne, Texas in 2017.
Power comes from a rebuilt 2.0L flat-six, which is equipped with Weber carburetors and mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The 911 has traveled only 1k miles since completion and now shows just over 17k on the odometer (TMU).
The new owner will receive a fresh oil change, parts receipts showing $30K from “911 Motors”, and a clean Texas title in the seller’s name.
The Porsche 911 was developed as a more powerful, larger, and a more comfortable replacement for the Porsche 356, the company's first model. The new car made its public debut at the 1963 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The 911 model was evolutionary with better visibility and shoulder room. Early 911s had much of the vintage charm of a 356 with upgraded performance and comfort.
