DT: 1972 Porsche 911 T Coupe

We are pleased to present this exceptional 1972 Porsche 911 T Coupe.  Having undergone a complete rotisserie-style restoration as well as a blue-printed and balanced full engine build, this 911 T looks the part while carrying its upgraded 2.7 L flat-six bored out from the original 2.4 L magnesium case.  Confirmed as long-nose Chassis number 1883 of 2931 in the U.S.,  this impeccable 911 T shows approximately 83k miles on the odometer and is now being offered for auction in collector-grade condition by its seller in Tennessee.

Refinished in its original color of Light Ivory White during the restoration, this 911T is said to highlight flawless paint throughout the car.  The seller states that the paint color, thickness and texture are of concours quality while meter readings indicate no signs of body damage or fillers.  The trim condition and fitment is said to be excellent minus a few areas of wear to the brightwork.  All exterior lights are reported to be in great working order and the undercarriage is stated to have been restored to perfection.  This 911 rides on upgraded OEM Fuchs alloy wheels which come wrapped in Yokohama tires.

Painstakingly restored to a minute detail, this 911 T is appointed with a Beige Tan Leatherette interior as specified on its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.  This interior is perfectly complemented by sport seats with houndstooth inserts.  Additional factory options for this car include:

  • Alloy Wheels
  • Stabilizer Bars F/R
  • Wheel Well Moldings
  • Manual Antenna Left Front
  • Loudspeaker and Noise Suppression
  • Comfort Equipment
  • Tinted Glass All Around

The original gauges have been rebuilt by Palo Alto and all interior accessories and electrical components are said to be fully functional.  Beautifully presented inside and out, this 911T makes an excellent addition to any collection.

This 911T is equipped with a 2.7 L flat-six engine rated at about 245 HP.  The original 2.4 L magnesium case was line bored, shuffle pinned, and Dow coated.  Timecerts and complete Raceware fasteners for cylinder studs and rod bolts/nuts were installed along with an Elephant Racing front oil cooling system.  The valve train was entirely renewed and Carrera oil-fed chain tensioners were installed.  The fuel Injection was done using Eurometric Injection by Matt Blast.  A new fuel tank and SSI heat exchangers were installed and the original 915 5-speed transmission was fully rebuilt with a 930 clutch package to handle the increased power.

Elephant Racing adjustable rear trailing arms, sway bar mounts and new rear ATE calipers were used to improve the rear suspension and braking while Bilstein shocks all around make for a smooth ride.

The sale of this one-of-a kind 911 will include one key, and books as well as extensive photos and documentation of the restoration process.  Accompanied by a clear title, this classic long-nose 911 is just waiting to be enjoyed by a new owner.

    @kireneslo sorry for the delayed response. I just noticed the comments went to the wrong inquiry. Please note most recent comments which clarify your question. Thank you.

  • MattShaw (seller) 1 week, 1 dayago

    @RandyK The 911 has back seats as it was designed from the factory. I’ll have to send pictures to pcar and have them upload to the listing.

  • MattShaw (seller) 1 week, 1 dayago

    @RandyK Hi Randy, thanks for your inquiry. The engine was assembled by William Briggs. As you research you will find William is a world class vintage engine builder. As with any project of this magnitude it was the effort of specialists in each area of expertise: design, machining, component selection, EFI conversion, assembly and much more. William was deeply involved but was primarily responsible for assembly. We considered many builders but felt William was the right fit for the job. Turns out he was perfect! Super happy with the outcome. HP ratings are based on specifications of the build using proven, lightened, hardened materials. Thanks again for your inquiry.

    Hi seller, is there a rear seat with seatbelts? May I see a photo? Does this auction continue indefinitely and until the seller likes a bid? Thank you.

    @FinnytheJRT9 There is nothing wrong with Yokohama tires. The tires on the 911 are approaching 10 years. Still in fine shape with no cracking and virtually new tread but age got them before miles. It is recommended to replace performance tires after 5 years.

  • MattShaw (seller) 2 months, 4 weeksago

    @Frenchiebastille The brake setup is Porsche SC. The SC used twin piston calipers and larger vented rotors in the front. Thank you for you question. Good luck on the auction.

  • MattShaw (seller) 2 months, 4 weeksago

    The Yoko tires are 2009. The Porsche recommended tire is the Dunlop N-spec tire.

    What kind of brake setup?

  • MattShaw (seller) 3 monthsago

    @Part356 Thank you for the inquiry. The paint restoration was a complete windows-out, interior-out rotisserie job. The original jamb plate was damaged when removed. To clarify this is a numbers matching ‘72 911 ready for show at Amelia or Monterey. Thank you for your interest.

    The car is located in Nashville, TN. It just completed inspection. Passed with flying colors. Inspector recommended new N-Spec tires.

  • Part356 3 monthsago

    Why is data plate on the hinge post blank? Thanks part 356

    @MattShaw That’s good to hear as well I’ve had 2 911’s previously and that sound when a door is closed is so cool in addition to the other great character of the car

  • MattShaw (seller) 3 monthsago

    @FinnytheJRT9 not a silly question at all. Those who know Porsche 911’s from 69-98 know when the doors close they make a distinctive ring. This 911 is no different. Solid thud followed by distinctive ring. I call it the 911 tuning fork.

  • FinnytheJRT9 3 monthsago

    This may be a silly question but how do the doors sound when they close?

  • MattShaw (seller) 3 monthsago

    Cold start and external sound videos have been posted to the PCARMARKET account. I’ll request the post them to the add.

  • FinnytheJRT9 3 monthsago

    @MattShaw That’s good to know thanks for information

  • MattShaw (seller) 3 monthsago

    @FinnytheJRT9 There should be no problem servicing this 911. In fact, all the service required is standard Porsche oil, belts, plugs, brakes, tires, etc. nothing special. We took the best of Porsche and upgraded with factory stuff. The fuel injection does not require any special tools or knowledge outside of a fully trained Tech. Parts are all readily available from Porsche and Eurometric. Unless you miss a gear at the top of the rev limit you have no need to get into this motor. Its good to go for the generations to come.

  • FinnytheJRT9 3 monthsago

    Would a Porsche Dealer service technician have any trouble servicing this car with the changes that have been made during the restoration, or other qualified Porsche tech with the information you show on the paperwork included? Thanks

  • MattShaw (seller) 3 monthsago

    @Slim_Chance. The build is a European S pocketed 2.7 using Mahle pistons just like Porsche did it only better using reinforced and hardened studs. Case bored to receive Ollie’s. Thanks for the inquiry Slim_Chance

  • MattShaw (seller) 3 monthsago

    @FinnytheJRT9 The car can be shipped anywhere in the world at the buyers request and expense.

  • FinnytheJRT9 3 monthsago

    @MattShaw that’s good I look forward to hearing this card motor

  • MattShaw (seller) 3 monthsago

    @FinnytheJRT9 There are several in-car videos available to pcarmarket. I will have to produce an external video. I’ll try to get something to them by Wednesday. The exhaust is strong by not loud.

  • FinnytheJRT9 3 monthsago

    Is there any possibility of posting a short video of how the car sounds? Thanks
