The cars 70s history is not that well known but it spent most of the 80s in California ending up in San Francisco in the 90s and there are some old photos showing it on California Blue plates and some large receipts for maintenance work.
In August 1999 the car was imported to the United Kingdom and its history from that point is nicely detailed:
The car was purchased in the UK by a Mr D Bonner of St James, London at the end of 1999 and transported to Gantspeed to be restored over the next 18 months. Robert Gant has been restoring Porsche since 1975 and Gantspeed are renowned as one of the top UK restorers of classic Porsches
The car was stripped and a detailed bodywork and mechanical restoration was carried out.
Invoices for Gantspeed alone total over £30,000!
The car has been correctly wax oiled by Autofarm.
The car retains its original matching numbers engine and had a comprehensive rebuild back in 1985. At this time they upgraded the engine to use 2.2S pistons and cylinders, rods and cams. The cost of the rebuild back then was £ 6200 and the breakdown of what was done is still on file.
After the body restoration the engine was newly rebuilt by Chris Sargent at GCR Central including the original Webers and transmission.
After the car was sold from the UK to Germany in 2010 we purchased this rare car earlier this year and decided to ship it back to the US together with other cars which were already scheduled for transportation to the US.
Once the car arrived at our shop here in Costa Mesa CA, we completely went through the car and decided to redo the interior, we replaced the aftermarket sport seats by correct 1966 911 seats and had them redone by Autos International together with new door, rear and quarter panels.
Though the car was delivered new with the tan interior we think it looks much better with the black leatherette and OEM houndstooth (black/beige) material.
The car retains its original 4½ Fuchs wheels completely redone.
The engine and Weber Carbs have been professionally dialed in by us on a dyno, now showing a nice and healthy 175HP. This documentation has been added to the file.
Original tool kit is in the trunk as to be expected, just like the original owners manual in the Porsche pouch.
We are proud to offer such a rare and early 911S for sale and welcome inquiries and inspections on site.
