Under the craftsmanship of Vintage Sportscar Restoration in Phoenix, OR, the vehicles body was first dipped in a paint dissolving solution bath, repaired and professionally refinished in its original color of Tangerine-6809.  Additionally, all chrome and bright work was restored along with a freshly refinished Targa top.  This example rides date matched 15” ventilated chrome wheels.  These wheels were also restored and come wrapped in period correct Pirelli tires.

Inside, you will find a black interior that has been restored by Auto International in San Diego, California.  The gauges were refurbished by North Hollywood Speedometer and Cocoa floormats were added.  Details include 1968 date-coded black lap belts with Porsche crests on the buckles, a Porsche-script radio blanking plate and a replaced wiring a harness.  All gauges, electrical components, and accessories are stated to be functional aside from the cigar lighter.  Factory options read as follows:

  • Fixed Tinted Rear Window
  • Tinted Windshield
  • Loudspeaker
  • Ventilated Chrome Wheels
  • Wood Steering Wheel
  • Talbot Exterior Mirror
  • Leather Seats
  • Pirelli Tires (165/15)

This 911’s original 2.0L flat-six engine has been completely rebuilt and enlarged to a 2.45 L by the master techs at Supertec Performance in 2015. Noteworthy equipment includes a 2.7 oil pump, billet 911S camshaft, reconditioned cylinder heads with manganese/ bronze valve guides, JE piston, rebuilt twin Weber carburetors, and a stainless-steel exhaust system with an M&K sport muffler.  Additionally, this 911 is equipped with an elephant racing suspension package.  Power is sent to the rear wheels through a Type 901 five-speed manual transaxle with dog-leg shift pattern that was also rebuilt by Supertec Performance. The car is noted to be in proper running condition with approximately 3k miles driven since the rebuild.

The sale will include records, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and a clean title.

    @dno76 Matching engine number, transmission from a 69 year but still a dogleg 5spd.

  • dno76 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    Hello. Is this a matching numbers car for engine AND transmission?

  • Nt1992 (seller) 1 monthago

    @MK19 PCarMarket just posted four images showing how dry and rust free the headlight buckets and turn signal where on the disassembled car.

    @MK19 Tomorrow when PCarMarket is back I can post photos of car during my disassembly showing headlight buckets and signal assembly where you can see how dry and rust free this car was, plus the dipping process and sealing almost assures the car being rust free.

  • Nt1992 (seller) 1 monthago

    @MK19 floor was replaced, we put a flashlight underneath and could see light coming through tiny pin holes, so we decided to put a new floor in, we probably could’ve left the original but we opted for safety and structural integrity. Other wise very little rust if not at all, light buckets where dry ands rust free with original Tangerine color. Light surface rust on the bottom of car.

  • MK19 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @Nt1992 Thanks, sounds right for the level of detail I see in the other work.
    Any rust repairs involved? Battery box, headlights, floor etc.?

  • Nt1992 (seller) 1 monthago

    @Nt1992 knee pad was done by Autobahn

  • Nt1992 (seller) 1 monthago

    @MK19 My mistake, dash was refinished in vinyl by AIR Motorsports, and knee pad was done in black German vinyl as well. Sorry for the confusion.

  • Nt1992 (seller) 1 monthago

    @MK19 I know that the dashboard was done in leather not by Autobahn Interior, I will have to check my receipts for the material used for knee pad.

  • MK19 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    Very nice car, thorough restoration and presentation. Nice work here @Nt1992!

    Question: Weren't these dah board upper/lower padding in vinyl? I realize that me be impossible to economically recreate but it does appear to be a no expense spared resto.

    @Nt1992 yup that answers my question thanks! I read up on it after I posted. 1968, funky year

  • Nt1992 (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @Henning you can see the metal dash in pic 121

  • Nt1992 (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @Henning “metal dash” what do you mean? If you are referring to the areas around the instrument gauges, yes that is metal. The top of the dash is leather, the bottom of the dash has a leather knee pad. The middle of the dash is metal covered with an aluminum strip which goes from left, light and ignition switch all the way to the glove box. On the higher model the 911L it came with what is called elephant hide which replaces the aluminum strip. But the dash is all metal underneath the leather and aluminum. Does that answer your question?

    @Mikemcinnis I don’t have the Kardex for this car but rather Certificate Of Authenticity.

  • Henning (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @NT1992 Nice car! The tangerine almost looks red in the pictures. I’m not very familiar with SWB, is the dash period correct in metal?

  • Mikemcinnis (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Is the Kardex available to post? Prior to 1980, what information do you have on the car?

  • Nt1992 (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @Mikemcinnis it handles awesome, well planted, ride height is just right, takes high speed corners with plenty of confidence. I also left the lead weights inside the corners of the front bumper.

  • Mikemcinnis (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @Nt1992 any comment on the handling characteristics after the elephant racing package was installed?

  • Nt1992 (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @Mikemcinnis I purchased 21 and 26 mm torsion bars plated and plugged hollow, front control arm rubber bushing kit, camber plate rubber bushing kit, boge strut, turbo tie rod with extra long thread for proper SWB steering rack, Bilstein rear shock, spring plate hardware kit, ball joint OEM and trailing bushing Sport hardness kit. I believe it was called the street sport kit. The early Turbo sway bars where sourced separately.

  • Mikemcinnis (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Ok I got resourceful and found the receipts on the 2017 restoration. I guess the only questions are blemishes of note and how’s it handle w elephant racing package?

  • Nt1992 (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @Mikemcinnis Freddie Hernandez of VSR delivered the painted car back to me on Valentine’s Day 2017. It was delivered as is seen in pic 122. It took me about a year and half to get it back on the road. As for motor dyno, Henry Schmidt of Supertec doesn’t dyno these engines as he has done so many over the years, he says it is should be making at least between 190 - 210 horse power.

  • Mikemcinnis (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    With the elephant racing suspension, what does that all include? Does that help with the tail happiness of the short wheelbase 911s?

  • Mikemcinnis (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Also, is there any dyno info on the motor?

  • Mikemcinnis (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    When did Sports Car Restoration do the work? Are there any imperfections on body etc to point out?
