This 2.4S was delivered new in France in the beautiful classical color scheme of Silver metallic with a black leatherette and corduroy interior. This car resided in Dubai for a long time and the owners are proven by the records since 1980! It moved to Europe again around 1999, by then the Porsche was in need of some TLC and a minor restoration by a Dutch Porsche Specialist.
This lovely '73 911S was completely disassembled and gone through, the body returned to factory-fresh condition. Beginning with a very solid and original car, the body was completely stripped before being finished in its original color.
In addition, extensive corrosion protection was applied to ensure the body remains in good shape for years. The chrome and windows were left in their original condition. According to its owner and our inspection, no evidence of rust repairs or prior accident damage could be found. Being an older restoration, the paint still presents very well.
The interior has been completely refinished while a lot of the original parts were maintained... We can also see factory Recaro sport seats; a rarity albeit not original to this car. In accordance with its COA, this EU example was delivered with corduroy seats and they are included in the sale of this car.
During the restoration of the body; the gearbox and engine were overhauled as well and lots of invoices are available for this work. Mechanical components were restored wherever possible, and any worn parts replaced with new ones. Attention to detail was maintained at all times, and all components and systems work and perform as they should.
Mechanically, the original matching numbers engine has been fully rebuilt. In addition, the MFI injection system has been re-freshened and re-calibrated. The engine is perfectly dry; starts at the turn of the key and idles very smooth.
Accompanying the car are the original seats, a spare gearbox, a tool kit, a lot of invoices and old titles. Acquired by the current owner several years ago, this Coupe still presents in excellent condition overall. Early 911 S coupes offer amazing performance to this day and prove to be eminently usable today—impressive when considering that this example left Stuttgart nearly 50 years ago.
A 1973 911 S is an excellent automobile in every regard, one that combines both performance, practicality, and the thrill of the classic 911 shape. A wonderful opportunity to own one of these highly collectible 2.4-litre Porsche 911S, a car in great condition and a wonderful color scheme.
The car currently has Belgian registration.
