DT: 1972 Porsche 911T Sunroof Coupe

Sporting a desirable external oil filler lid unique to its model year, this 1972 Porsche 911T Sunroof Coupe comes finished in Light Ivory over a black leatherette interior with houndstooth pepita seat centers.  The fuel-injected 2.4L flat-six engine drives the rear wheels through a 5-speed 915 manual gearbox.  An ideal long-hood 911 for any aspiring classic Porsche driver, this 911T is now being offered for auction by its second owner out of Idaho.

This Coupe comes finished in Light Ivory and features a 1972-specific external oil filler as well as aluminum rocker and deco moldings, chrome brightwork, chrome headlight rings, and a driver-side mirror. Removable Porsche script graphics have been added to the sides and the car rides on a set of factory 15” Fuchs alloy wheels dressed in Pirelli P6000 tires.  The entire car is believed to have been previously refinished and some imperfections are noted throughout the exterior including some traces of corrosion.

The black leatherette interior features a pair of bucket seats which were re-trimmed during the 1990s with OEM houndstooth pepita inserts.  Creature comforts include heating and ventilation control, a retractable sunroof, pop-out rear quarter windows, shoulder belts, and head restraints. There is no radio or air conditioning equipped and one of the horns is inoperable, although a replacement part is said to accompany the sale.

The air-cooled 2.4L flat-six engine is equipped with fuel injection and drives the rear wheels through a 5-speed 915 manual gearbox.  The fuel pump was replaced within the last two years and the seller describes the car to have been kept in strong running order, accompanied by a collection of maintenance records.

This sale will include a set of keys, maintenance records, the original service booklet, and a clean title.

    @Deep_Six if you look through the photos there’s a photo with a spare tire in front of the car if you zoom in on that you can see what you’re looking for there. There is no specific photo of the battery. Oh also it’s going to come with a trickle charger.

    @wschmoopie: Thanks for the additional info. Do you have any photos of the front pan under the spare tire and/or the battery boxes and surrounding areas?

    @Deep_Six and yes, after I purchased her and I was driving in the oil pressure was at zero it freaked me out!!! Just a light tap…

  • wschmoopie (seller) 6 days, 19 hoursago

    @Deep_Six yes I crawled under the car and took a lot of pictures as well. I took a picture of that door jam to show the rest. There was the rest is not that extensive. When I purchased this car it was my intent to put her back to her original glory. The interior is pristine with the exception of the drivers door pocket. Also, the second start video with the walk around shows it all to the best of my ability.
    In my opinion the chrome needs to be taken off, she needs to be sanded down to the metal, and repainted. There are no dents anywhere in the body

  • Deep_Six (registered bidder) 6 days, 19 hoursago

    @wschmoopie: Thank you. Old gauges get sticky for sure. Kind of heart-stopping when it happens sometimes! Other than the front latch panel how is the corrosion situation? The pic of the front suspension mount looks a bit crispy and I'm trying to see from the picture of the rear of the driver's door jamb if it looks like there has been repair work done there. Have you been under the car to investigate?

  • wschmoopie (seller) 6 days, 20 hoursago

    @Deep_Six yes. It sticks. If you tap gently it pops up. There’s another video I sent in showing that that they did not publish. I will ask him to find the clip and posted. Thank you

  • Deep_Six (registered bidder) 6 days, 20 hoursago

    In both cold start videos there is no activity on the oil pressure gauge? Have you looked into that? Thanks!

    The date on fuel pump invoice was 12/16/20. I was trying to cover up the name and covered up the date inadvertently. That receipt will be in the package with all of the records.

  • wschmoopie (seller) 6 days, 20 hoursago

    @wschmoopie the tires, appear to be fairly new.

    @dr911 I appreciate your knowledge. I took a picture of the owners manual pages about the injection system and a picture of the serial number on the motor that will be posted probably tomorrow I sent them by email to Pcar earlier

  • dr911 (registered bidder) 1 week, 3 daysago

    @wschmoopie No, not a Porsche mechanic, but have read up on the various details on the early 911s

  • wschmoopie (seller) 1 week, 4 daysago

    Two perhaps confuse things more. This is from an article from car and driver in 2020. Specifically about 1972 Porsches. I’m willing to bet that whoever buys this car knows a lot more about it than me. The 911 is now produced in three versions, T, E and S, in ascending order of both performance and price. Since its introduction the T has had two 3-bbl. carburetors while the others were injected. Now all have Bosch fuel injection. But the big news is the increased displacement, up from 2195 to 2341cc, which was accomplished by a 0.17-inch increase in the stroke—not a complicated operation.

    I am going to verify the serial numbers on the motor and the transmission. Thank you for all your comments

    @wschmoopie I make up because of your email address that you are a Porsche mechanic?

  • wschmoopie (seller) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @dr911 I wish they figured that out before. Thank you

  • dr911 (registered bidder) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @wschmoopie Right, only CIS cars have the air box that can blow apart when it backfires. That's why it's always recommended to put a pop-off valve in the air box to keep it from exploding.

  • wschmoopie (seller) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @dr911 I did not know that. Apparently I’ve got information. Thank you. All I know is it does not that bloody airbox Thank you for the clarification.

  • dr911 (registered bidder) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @wschmoopie I think you need to check your source again. ROW (rest of the world) 911Ts had carbs, but US models had mechanical fuel injection. I'm not trying to be combative, just pointing out an inaccuracy in your listing.

  • wschmoopie (seller) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @dr911 We have determined that since it is a 911 T that it is carbureted. Note the article That said that the 911 E and S were mechanically injected and the T is naturally aspirated. Hence the lower horsepower and more reliability.

  • wschmoopie (seller) 1 week, 4 daysago

    We had a 19 73 1/2 911 T with Sv instrumentation, the super tight torsion bars, which I would recommend putting on this car. I wanted to fix this car up but I got married. Also, when you pull up the heater I make up the big cable is either broken or disconnected because you can’t get any hot air. The defroster works with the air that blows through it but the heater is non-functional currently. Back to the 9/11 color if you were decelerate going down hills it would backfire and blow out the airbox. That happened probably six times. As much as I try to avoid it it was unavoidable. It was explaining me to CVS injection was the problem. I’m not a mechanic. I just know it was expensive. Also, after about three years the target top started to leak. That’s why stuck with coops from out on until the 2008 that I owned it was a targa. This is by far my favorite Porsche. It makes me sad to think of letting her go. But my wife is certainly worth it!

  • dr911 (registered bidder) 1 week, 4 daysago

    @wschmoopie and @Pcarmarket

    Now that it's been determined that this fine looking '72 911T has mechanical fuel injection and not carbs the writeup should be changed to reflect this. Curious @wschmoopie, you said you had problems with your '73 911 with CIS, so could you elaborate on that? I have one and had a '79 911SC previously with CIS and haven't had any problems with either. Would like to know if I need to look out for anything in particular. I do know that prices for pumps, etc on these systems can be quite expensive. GLWA

    @sparkbone 1969 brought the first substantive
    changes to the Porsche 911 lineup,
    which now consisted of three
    models: the 911T, 911E and 911S. All
    of these were available in coupe
    and Targa body styles. The T was
    carbureted until 1972, while the E

    CiR&essure in this area. The fuel is mixed with the aide the
    center of the venturi to aid atomization of the fuel and to
    improve intermixing of fuel and air.
    A fuel injection system uses pressurized fuel forced
    through an injector valve/nozzle to achieve atomization.
    Porsche used Bosch's diesel-based mechanical fuel
    injection (MFI) system in racing engines for decades and
    in the 1969-1973 911. While a full description of the
    operation of Bosch MFI is beyond the scope of this
    article, an important feature of this system is that it
    operated at about 250 psi, which allowed fine
    atomization of each precisely measured and timed shot
    of fuel into the intake ports. This served to promote the
    evaporative cooling effect of the injected fuel and was
    quite conducive to the high-revving Porsche racing
    engines with individual throttle bodies.
    Porsche successfully used Bosch's more emissions-

    My point is that this is the last year before that disastrous CIS system came. I lived through five years of hell with a 19739/11 with that CIS injection system which is why I sought out the naturally aspirated car.

  • DALESMITH (registered bidder) 1 week, 5 daysago

    Sparkbone you are correct it is MFI! I just looked at the pic's and see the steel lines even though I can't see the pump

  • DALESMITH (registered bidder) 1 week, 5 daysago

    @wschmoopie Didn't the 72 originally have MFI system? My all original 73 that was built in November 1972 still has the original Bosch Mechanical Fuel Injection.

  • sparkbone 1 week, 5 daysago

    From the photos, it's pretty clear this car has the original Bosch mechanical fuel injection (not carbs) that was standard for US 1972-1973 "T" cars.

  • wschmoopie (seller) 1 week, 5 daysago

    One of the cool things about this car is that is his basic. The only thing upgraded in this car are the seats and the wheels. No radio to break, no air conditioner to repair nor drag down on the engine, it’s just a fun car to drive!

  • wschmoopie (seller) 1 week, 5 daysago

    @jovanybg Since there is no injection system, I am confused. Do you realize that this is the last naturally aspirated 911 year ever? With the biggest engine?

  • wschmoopie (seller) 1 week, 5 daysago

    @jovanybg The car has the original Bosch carburetors. I’m not sure I understand your question.

  • jovanybg 1 week, 5 daysago

    Will the fuel injection system accompany the car, or it is lost after the switch to Webers?
