1972 Porsche 911T Signal Yellow

We are pleased to present this 1972 Porsche 911 T finished in Signal Yellow over a black leatherette interior.  Introduced for the 1972 model year, the E-program 911 debuted a larger 2.4 L flat-six engine mated to a new Type 915 5-speed manual transmission.  This U.S. spec 1972 example has become sought after for its distinctive external oil filler lid which could be seen on the rear passenger side quarter panel.  Having undergone some considerable restorative work including a full glass-out respray and a recent transmission rebuild, this number’s matching 911 T is ready to be enjoyed by its next caretaker.

At some point during a previous ownership, this 911 T was subjected to an intensive glass-out respray in its factory original color of Signal Yellow.  During this time all new body seals and moldings were installed, although the original brightwork was retained.  The paint is noted to be in excellent condition with some typical signs of roadgoing wear, detailed images are provided in the photo gallery.  This highly collectible 1972 example is characterized by a unique external oil filler lid which is located on the passenger side rear quarter panel.  This 911 T rides on factory optional 14” Fuchs wheels which come dressed in BFGoodrich tires.

The black leatherette upholstered cabin has been recently refurbished with new door cards and door rails, a refinished dashboard and a reupholstered steering wheel.  The original seats, headliner and carpeting have been retained and the interior is noted to be in great shape.  Factory features include a Blaupunkt radio, a loudspeaker and noise insulation.  All gauges, electrical components and accessories are stated to be fully functional.

First introduced during the 1972 model year, this 911 T carries its original air-cooled 2.4 L flat-six engine which has been converted to Zenith carburetors for easier maintenance.  Approximately 130 HP is sent to the rear wheels by way of number’s matching Type 915 5-speed manual transmission which has been recently rebuilt and equipped with a new clutch.  Stainless steel brake lines have also been added along with an MSD ignition system.  A new alternator fan and housing have been installed and a recent service was carried out which included a full tune-up, spark plugs, fluids and filters as well as a full rebuild of the carburetors.  This 911 T is said to be in superb driving condition with just over 19k miles showing on the odometer, although the actual mileage is believed to be nearer to 119k.

The sale of this 911 T will include the original books, jack and spare tire, a set of two keys, service records and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.  For any enthusiast in search of a classic Porsche 911, this highly celebrated 1972 example makes the perfect choice.

    @VertexAuto Hi can you please post a picture of the engine number
    and of the Certificate of Authenticity confirming your claim
    that it is a matching number engine.

    When I first saw the car, I liked it.
    What's not to like?:

    A 1972 Signal Yellow Coupe,
    this driver quality car should be flying out the door,
    however the lack of documentation regarding the power plant and the inaccuracy of the "considerable restorative" work done to date are holding it back.

    With no service history available the request for a leak down test is valid,
    and also a compression test.
    the response, however, does not inspire confidence.

    You want to charge $ 600- for a leak down test???

    Something is not right here.
    You are a dealer, you have a shop and this can be done quite easily,
    so why ask for $ 600-?

    If you want to sell this car, you need to get the tests done and post the results,
    straight away,
    and show confirmation of the matching numbers claim.

    @mcbene No, a leak down test has not been performed. We can either do one at our shop for a $600 fee (refundable if you are the wining bidder) or we can take it for a PPI to the shop of your preference.

  • mcbene (registered bidder) 10 months, 1 weekago

    @VertexAuto thanks. Did you perform a leak-down test? If so can you share the results?

  • VertexAuto (seller) 10 months, 1 weekago

    @mcbene Thank you! We don't have and previous service records but we do have a COA from Porsche. The transmission and carburetors was performed by us (Vertex Auto). In addition to those two rebuilds and the interior work, we did the following work. Clutch, MSD ignition, alternator fan, spark plugs, cap & rotor, ignition wires, fan belt, oil change, etc.

  • mcbene (registered bidder) 10 months, 1 weekago

    Beautiful car. Can you share the service records? Also, when was the transmission rebuild and carburetor rebuild conducted?

  • VertexAuto (seller) 10 months, 1 weekago

    Just 48hrs left on this beautiful and very sought after 1972 911T. Feel free to ask us any question or for any additional pics. Thank you and good luck!
