1972 Porsche 911T Coupe Signal Yellow

We are pleased to offer this 1972 Porsche 911T Coupe finished in Signal Yellow over a black leatherette interior.  The E-Series 911 was introduced in 1972 with a larger 2.4L flat-six engine, and this 911T Coupe is especially sought after for its rare external oil filler lid on the passenger side quarter panel.  In more recent years, this 911T has been completely refinished in its original color and refreshed with new interior upholstery as well as some performance upgrades including an MSD ignition system and Zenith carburetors.  Previously listed on PCARMARKET, this numbers-matching 911T has undergone extensive recent service and is now being offered for auction by its seller out of New York.

Under previous ownership, this Coupe was treated to a complete glass-out respray in its originally specified color of Signal Yellow.  The original brightwork was retained and all new rubber seals and moldings were installed.  Since the seller’s acquisition within the last year, the car has been ceramic coated and the factory 15” Fuchs wheels were dressed in new Michelin Premier A/S tires.  Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery.

Recently under previous ownership, the black leatherette interior was refreshed with new door cards and door rails as well as a re-covered dashboard and steering wheel.  The original carpeting, headliner, and seats were all reportedly retained.  A new Bluetooth radio has been installed along with new black and yellow Coco floormats, and the original Blaupunkt radio is said to accompany the sale as well.  All gauges are reported to be functional, and the 5-digit odometer currently shows just over 19k miles, although the true mileage is believed to be 119k miles.

This 1972 example carries its original 2.4L flat-six engine paired with a numbers-matching 5-speed 915 manual gearbox.  The engine has been converted to Zenith carburetors and upgraded with an MSD ignition system.  The gearbox was also reportedly rebuilt within the last several years and fitted with a new clutch. Recently in 2021, the distributor cap, rotor, and spark plugs were replaced along with the cam housing gaskets, exhaust gaskets, and CV boots.  The generator and carburetors were also rebuilt. Corresponding invoices are provided for reference in the photo gallery.

This sale will include a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, owner's manuals, a vintage repair book, some service records, a spare Fuchs wheel, and a clean title (lien).  This highly sought-after 1972 911T is just waiting for a new caretaker, do not miss your chance to get behind the wheel.

    I would have to disagree that Zenith carburetors are an “upgrade.” Should be original MFI. Just sayin.

  • TRracer (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Hard to beat this 911 if you want to have the early 911 driving experience - great color in what looks to be a solid car with the unique and rare external oil filler door - Check out AirBrigade.com review of this car and the uniqueness of the external oil filler door.

    @Henning Part 2…I just watched the video again of the car being started and the walk around, the paint has the orange tint you spoke about, good call!

  • Shelby2008 (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @Henning In person, the paint is just incredible. As the experts at PCAR said, “this car is a head turner”. Thank you and stay well.

    @jres Kardex do not exist for 911 past 1970.
    @Shelby2008 Very nice car, might be the camera or post-shoot photo settings but this car looks almost like light yellow, missing a hint of orange. Googling the VIN shows that the car indeed looks closer to the original signal yellow (a much better color than light yellow in my opinion). Good luck with the auction!

  • Shelby2008 (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @jres there’s no spot or blemish , that’s just a bad photo. My apologies. If you send me your mobile phone number, I’ll go into my garage now , take a current picture and send it to you. The paint job is fantastic especially after I had Ceramic Pro applied . Ceramic Pro is a permanent nanoceramic protective paint coating. It’s transparent 3D matrix structure protects the surface from scratches, dirt, aging, bugs, bird droppings, rain marks, road salt, and rock chips. It costs $2300.
    I’m sorry, I don’t have a Carfax, my apologies. Thank you and stay well. Best, Steve

    Beautiful 911. Is that a blemish in photo #34, or simply a reflection? Don't see it in other shots. Do you have the Kardex for her?

  • Shelby2008 (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @911guy great info, thanks a lot.

  • 911guy 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @Shelby2008 Understood, and it was not an uncommon swap. 72T non-sunroof is a GREAT car (have one in my garage). The increased engine displacement to 2.4 and the 915 transmission were very worthy changes...not to mention the single year left quarter panel oil-filler door. Good luck with the auction!

  • Shelby2008 (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @911guy The car came this way. I just completely repaired the carburetors and as a result, the car drives great. Thank you and stay well.

  • 911guy 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @Shelby2008 Too bad about the missing MFI as it hurts the value (about $7K to source all the correct pieces) and carbs are way more of a headache than the MFI ever was which suffered only from a lack of knowledge and skill from technicians.

  • Shelby2008 (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @Upshift4 Thank you for your question. You are correct. The previous owner took the 2.4 liter flat six engine and had it converted to Zenith carburetors for easier maintenance. Thank you and stay well.

  • Upshift4 (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Is it safe to assume that you do not have the MFI system?

    Beautiful car! I was thinking about buying a 2022 911 to celebrate my 50th birthday but this car has me thinking I should buy a 50-year old car instead.
