Up for auction is this beautifully presented 1969 Porsche 911 E Coupe finished in Polo Red. Marking the final generation of the original 2.0 L 911, this fuel-injected 1969 example is said to have undergone a complete nut-and-bolt restoration from the frame up under previous ownership. Approximately 800 miles have been driven since the completion of the restoration with over $15k worth of maintenance carried out this year in preparation for sale including a full engine-out service and reseal. Reported to be in exceptional overall condition, this classic 911 E is now being offered by its seller in Massachusetts accompanied by service records and the original spare tire.
During previous ownership, this 911 was completely disassembled before being refinished in the historic Porsche color Polo Red. Records show that the right front fender was recently replaced with a genuine Porsche part to improve upon the repair work performed during the initial restoration. The paint on the car is said to be outstanding and the exterior brightwork is also shown to be like-new (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). Genuine Fuchs wheels are equipped which come dressed in brand new Michelin MXV tires.
Inside, the black leatherette interior has been refurbished to a very high standard. New carpeting was installed, the steering wheel was replaced, and the seats were reupholstered along with the dashboard and door panels. The cabin remains stock in its configuration and the seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be working properly.
This 911 E is equipped with a 2.0 L type-901/11 flat-six engine which is fitted with Bosch mechanical fuel injection. 140 HP is sent to the rear wheels by way of a desirable 5-speed manual gearbox. Recently in 2020, this 911 underwent a comprehensive engine-out service in preparation for sale at a cost of over $15k. Maintenance items addressed during this time include:
All of the recent maintenance was done through the previous owner’s Subaru dealership and supporting invoices are provided in the photo gallery. The engine is stamped with the serial number 4381937 and the gearbox is stamped 901/07. Just under 800 miles have been driven since the time of the restoration and this 911 is reported to be in excellent running order.
This sale will include a set of 3 keys, a car cover, recent service records and the original spare tire. For any enthusiast in search of an early Porsche 911, this fully restored 1969 911 E is not to be overlooked.
