THE 1965 911
Porsche started developing the next model wanting both a faster and more efficient car, while offering more space. The '64 and '65 911's are you unique because of many small details like the chrome horn grill with 4 screws, fixed shock absorbers, small key contact, ...
In the end 3150 early 911's were built during the first 2 years.
EXTERIOR & INTERIOR
This example just finished restoration and looks wonderful with the Gulf blue paint and black perforated leatherette interior. We can find the tinted windows allround as well as the Webasto auxiliary heater in the smuggler box.
The body was restored and received a special KTL treatment. Body was very well preserved before restoration and we can find original door panels and wings, proved by the number. All 5 wheels are original 4.5 x 15 inch and matching 07 / 65 examples.
On the inside we find the original wooden steering wheel, dash panels were remade from original 1965 mahony wood, just like the original. We can also see the original flat floor, 3 screw seats hinges and window frames, window winders, chrome carpet holders, 4 screw horn grills,...
ENGINE & MECHANICS
Engine and gearbox are the original and matching example, of course completely cleaned, revised and restored!
The car came to Europe with lots of original parts like gauges, wheels, buttons, mechanics,... Supension, brakes and all other mechanical parts were overhauled, repaired, restored, replaced, ... to achieve the best possible result.
This car left the factory in october 1965 wearing beautiful Gulf Blue paint over black leatherette interior, as confirmed by the COA. The 911 was driven in and around Michigan for a long time, and was always kept in a good condition. In 2015 it was sold to California were the current owner bought it in 2017 before bringing it to Europe for restoration.
It was still rolling and running but could do with some proper care. The car was once painted black, but still showing the original blue paint on several parts and panels. It proved the perfect 'early 911' for complete restoration!
After a nut & bolt restoration the car looks exactly like it left the factory back in 1965. It has Belgian registration and papers.
