1968 Porsche 911S Targa

$_57 (1)

No matter how much I read about Porsche 911s, there’s always some little historical tidbits that I come across of which I wasn’t aware. Case in point this 1968 Targa with an optional 100 liter fuel tank. It seems the option lists from the folks in Stuttgart know no bounds, as this one has a few other interesting features, such as the Webasto heater and Recaro sport seats.

1969 Porsche 911S Coupe – Fully Restored

It is no secret that vintage Porsches have seen a serious surge in value over the last couple of years. A decent example of the 356 easily fetch nearly six-figures with some restored models eclipsing $200,000. While the 911 has not quite hit those sorts of values for a non-RS model, we have seen enough upward movement over the past year to suggest that a long-hood 911 is not far behind the 356 in today’s market. Whether those trends will continue remains to be seen, but the car featured here is certainly trying to see just how high the bar has been raised. This is a Tangerine 1969 Porsche 911S Coupe located in California. With 190hp coming from the 2.0 liter flat-six engine only forced to propel slightly more than 2200lbs, a 911S remains a spirited performer even by today’s standards. Having been treated to a full restoration, the example here appears impeccable in almost every way.

Crevier Classic Cars is pleased to offer our 1969 Porsche 911 S Coupe.

1,991cc, 190hp, Bosch mechanical fuel injection, 5-speed manual transmission
Solid and straight original 911S with a completely detailed undercarriage
‘Kardex’, Certificate of Authenticity, original owner’s manual, warranty book, plus toolkit
Highly collectible example

Porsche’s legendary 911 began with initial sketches by Ferdinand “Butzi” Porsche in 1959 predicting a larger, more powerful, and more comfortable successor to the long-lived 356. Ferdinand Porsche developed the chassis and body, while his cousin Ferdinand Piech developed its new air-cooled flat-six engine. With a slightly longer wheelbase and clearly paying homage to its successful predecessor, the new Porsche model debuted at Frankfurt in 1963 as the “901”. However, following Peugeot’s objections to the name, claiming it held the rights to all three-digit model designations with zeroes in the middle, a simple numeric change heralded Porsche’s brilliant new 911.

Production began in September 1964 and as before with the 356, the 911 was relentlessly developed and perfected with an uncanny level of commitment Porsche. Its sporting credentials were confirmed during the 1965 edition of the gruelling Monte Carlo Rally, with a 911 piloted by Peter Falk and Herbert Linge finishing in fifth. “Quick” Vic Elford took victory with a 911 there in 1968. By the late 1960s, the 911 was the cornerstone of Porsche’s racing program.

The high-performance “S” debuted for 1967 and immediately spawned a number of lightweight competition variants that immediately dominated their respective classes. Main “S” upgrades included a compression boost to 9.8:1, forged pistons with raised crowns, stronger connecting-rods, high-performance camshafts with increased overlap, enlarged valves, Weber IDS carburetors and revised exhaust ducting, plus brake and suspension revisions. Bosch mechanical fuel injection debuted for 1969 and maintained the engine’s stout 190-hp output while meeting the increasingly more stringent emissions standards imposed in Porsche’s crucial US export market.

From launch, the 911 S has been the hands-down favorite of driving enthusiasts around the world, with an unmatched level of driver-and-machine interaction and a strong top speed approaching 140-mph. Naturally, its enduring cachet is enhanced by film legend Steve McQueen’s ownership of a 911S, with the car figuring prominently during the opening sequences of his classic film, LeMans.

A great example of the ultimate early road-going early 911 model, this 1969 Coupe is a solid and straight original 911S with a completely detailed undercarriage, show quality paint and trim, and excellent panel gaps. Retaining the correct original engine, it is accompanied by its ‘Kardex’ build record, as well as the original owner’s manual and warranty book, plus toolkit. It is numbers matching and finished in its original color of tangerine. Just fully serviced and ready for the road or the track. As one of the greatest pure driving machines ever produced in its iconic early form, this 911S remains the ultimate early 911 and of course, it is both highly collectible and immensely satisfying to drive.

Tangerine is such an eye-catching color on these cars that complements the black interior and fits their period of production quite well. Overall, every thing here looks beautiful. But is it worth $185,000? Probably not, but I’ve certainly come across sellers with far more unrealistic prices than this one here. This is a near perfect example of a 45-year-old car whose lineage has shown excellent valuation in recent years. It’s simply a matter of how high the market is willing to go.

1973 Porsche 911S

For the 1974 model year Porsche had to redesign the front bumper of the 911 in order to meet US impact requirements. Thus was born (in hindsight) the Porsche 911 long hood. While the new bumper design would remain with the car all the way to 1989 when Porsche introduced the 964, collectors have sought out the more aesthetically pleasing original design and long hood prices have gone through the roof. With their slightly larger displacement, along with stronger 5-speed transmission, the prices of the 1972-1973 models represent the peak of the classic 911 market. Just how high have prices shot up? That brings us to the car featured here: a very pretty 1973 Porsche 911S in Grand Prix White that is located in Washington. For those curious about the differences in appearance between a long hood and its redesigned successor (the G-Series), the final picture in the gallery below highlights the original shape very well. This particular example comes with an added bonus: rather than the standard 2.4 L of the 911S, this car has been fitted with the motor from the 2.7 Carrera RS, which provides a nice bump up from the standard car’s 190 hp.

1973 911S Sunroof Coupe

This 1973 911S (9113301387) is nearly 95% concours, and an excellent quality presentation good enough to be shown without reservation or excuses. The west coast car is 100% rust free with no accident history.

Power Plant: The ‘73S is powered by a very strong 2.7 Carrera RS spec motor professionally built on ’74 U.S. Carrera RS case (911/93), fueled by a ’73 RS MFI. This motor has been balanced/blueprinted and is bullet proof with a turbo oil pump, Carrera chain tensioners, advanced oiling and more. All engine metal was re-anodized and the motor presents as new.

Transaxle: It features Quaife torque sensing Limited Slip Differential, with a solid shifting 915 gearbox.

Factory options: Full tinted glass, full leather interior, power roof, power windows, through the grill fogs, engine light, and AC (not installed). Also included: The original tool kit, jack, owner’s manual, and service book in their original red vinyl jacket.

Exterior: The ‘73S has undergone a windows-out bare-metal re-spray in the original Gran Prix white and is flawless. All exterior rubber and seals were replaced during paint. The floor pan was not touched and is completely straight. New H4s and Euro lenses front and rear compliment the exterior.

Interior: The newly reupholstered black leather seats with black and white hounds-tooth inserts beautifully compliment the Gran Prix white exterior. This combination must be seen. To enhance the forward view, a German sourced dash was fitted while the original instruments were re-faced to like-new condition. Looking out, a new SIGLA German windshield was installed. To complete the package, the steering wheel was recovered and double-wrapped. In the rear view, a new rear parcel shelf was fitted while the original seat pockets were reworked for proper fitment.

Performance: This ‘73S will blow the doors off all stock ‘72 and ’73 Ss. It possesses outstanding torque through the entire rev-range and has a conservatively estimated 215 hp (compared to the stock 190). The S has oversized torsion bars with LSD that aggressively puts the power down. The S sits at Euro-height, is corner balanced, and challenges the corners like it is on rails.

Misc. Mileage: 114,500. The matching numbers 2.4 S block (6339134), front over-riders, AC, standard torsion bars, and sugar-scoops included with the sale. Original sportomatic NA, but know of an available unit. Two extremely nice “7X15” Fuchs available at extra cost for a more aggressive staggered stance.

In Sum: This well prepared 1973S not only presents beautifully on the show field, but also possesses the performance to more than best the competition.

I will be curious to see what happens with this car. The seller has placed the starting bid at $95,000, which would be strong money for a ’73 911S with this mileage. The question is how potential buyers react to the engine. The engine is a performance upgrade and a good one at that. But in the realm of 40-year-old collector cars selling for six figures originality is always going to be a sticking point. The car presents very well. The paint looks excellent and while I could do with some more complete interior shots, the interior shots that are shown look very good. So it comes down to the engine and I’m just not sure that a buyer is going to be quite as interested in the improved performance for a collector car at this price. Had the starting bid been set a bit lower we might get an idea of what sort of price this will fetch. At $95,000, it may not see a bid. We shall see. Regardless, this looks to be an excellent car that would be quite fun to drive, there’s just the matter of figuring out the value.

1967 Porsche 911S

It’s rather remarkable that the basic formula for the Porsche 911 has been with us for 50 years, even if there have been a series of evolutions along the way. It’s no shock that such a well loved car commands such high resale values, especially when it comes to the earlier models. This 1967 911S for sale in Connecticut has a rather remarkable history as documented by its sole owner for the last 42 years. The car isn’t original, but was sympathetically restored just short of the 140,000 mile mark.

History of our 1967 911S

We bought the car at Mesa Porsche in San Diego CA. in December of 1972. The car was traded in for another Porsche by a Navy Captain so we are second owners of the car (he had installed red & green seat belts i.e. port and starboard). We were in the Navy at the time as a Naval aviator (helicopters…. only real airplanes). We were in San Diego from 1972 until 1977. In 1977 we received orders to Japan, not wanting to sell the car we stored it in San Diego on blocks in a military storage warehouse. When we returned to San Diego in 1980 on the next set of orders we got the car out and used it in the San Diego area. In 1983 we were sent to Navy War College in Newport, anticipating that we would return to San Diego we stored the car again in San Diego in a warehouse. 1984 (war college is a one year school) we received orders to the Pentagon in Washington, DC to the Chief of Naval Operations staff. My wife and I moved to Springfield, VA and then flew out to San Diego picked up the car and drove back across country together. We were in the Pentagon until 1987 when I received orders to CINCPAC staff in Hawaii. Not desiring to expose the car to the salt air in Hawaii we stored the car on blocks in my mother in law’s garage (tolerant lady needless to say). We received our next set of orders in 1990, to the Sikorsky helicopter factory as an executive officer at the NAVPRO (Military organization that accepts helos and monitors contracts).

Up until this time the car had been maintained by myself for oil changes, wires plugs, air filters which are very easy on this car but the mileage had accumulated to 138,000 or so (48,000 when we bought it) and the car needed some significant work. It became a decision to restore or sell for parts. We chose to restore, KAM in Waterbury (Gerry McCarthy now retired) did the complete engine, transmission, body and subbed out the interiors. The expressed aim was to keep the car as close to original as possible without going crazy. The body was stripped down to bare metal, all rust removed re-primed and painted to match the color code (Porsche LIGHT IVORY) on the manufacturing plate. Interior was done to match the original (IVORY). The original engine has new pistons, valves, rocker arms, springs etc. The engine oil pump was upgraded to a later better model, the transmission also had all later upgrades put in, they could not find an oil tank that had the fitting for the oil level gauge so we opted to go without it since the tank had a dip stick any way. Of the original engine the engine case, crankshaft, cam shafts are all original, all valves and pistons were replaced and upgraded where necessary. The engine was powder coated as well. Up until the restoration only a bit of the front of the floor pan was replaced as it had rusted. You may notice earlier invoices for paint or body work it was all part of the process of keeping after rust issues. The car was never in an accident or raced while I owned it and there was no evidence of any previous body work when it was restored. The whole time in CT it has been a third car, stored in the garage when snow comes and comes back out in the Spring.

This car has 40 years of complete documentation, including original bill of sale and restoration records! California blue plate car. She car remains in wonderful condition, the chrome is good, though the front vents some pitting, and the rear view mirror is incorrect. The door cards are correct, and the trunk area is in excellent condition, as it was rust proofed during the restoration. This is a correct, very original, numbers matching car with the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity! The Porsche 911S is one of the most iconic designs of its generation, and this car, with its wonderful story, is one of the finest of its kind.

The 1967 911S is interesting in that the S model would disappear the following year, only to return once again in 1969 with mechanical fuel injection. These S models don’t come cheap, and this particular car is priced at the very top of the spectrum when it comes to values. This particular car has great provenance but it is not original, a point that will no doubt be a factor with the serious collector. Considering others I’ve seen on the market as of late, I’d suspect this 911S would bring somewhere in the $90,000 to $100,000 neighborhood.

1982 Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia with 911S motor!

Screen Shot 2013-05-13 at 4.17.59 PM

As soon as I saw this van I emailed one of my best friends from home and said “this is YOUR van!” Not because he should buy this one, but because it is the result of a swap we have been talking about for years. He is the lucky inheritor of a gold Westy as well as a 1974 911S that has been unfortunately and rustily neglected since a complete rebuild over 15 years ago. Our dream has been to combine the two for the perfect aircooled Westfalia. It may lack the durability and cheap repairs of Subaru-swapped vans, but I can only imagine the perfection of hearing an air-cooled 911 engine in a VW camper. His project has yet to commence, so we’ll check out this one for now.

Though currently in Canada, today’s 1982 Vanagon was originally a California car and should be easy enough to get back to the States, should you choose to get awesome. It was completely restored in 2004 with the transmission rebuilt and a rebuilt 1977 911S motor installed. From almost every angle it’s classic and perfect Westy, extremely clean and beige through the interior and exterior. That’s until you lift the rear engine cover or peak underneath and see a yellow Porsche flat-six hiding under there. Holy moly.

Talk about a sleeper! I’m surprised at the lack of brake upgrade as this tin can has double the power it originally came with. And unfortunately the fake rotors on the wheels do even less for the looks than the performance. I can get over that (it IS French-Canadian, after all), as this is a very cool van with an exceptional swap. With 3 years and $50k in the restoration, it’s obvious this van was cared for. The $25k starting price may cause initial sticker shock, but if this had a GoWesty bill of sale, it’d be going for at least twice that. Clean stock Westfalias can easily eclipse $30k these days, so this is a relative value for a damn cool car. I’m dying to get my friend’s van project going because I have to hear that engine in a van!

1968 Porsche 911S Coupe Barn find

In the early 60’s the 356 was nearing the end of its life, and was starting to be considered antiquated. Enter the 911, Porsche had developed a totally new GT car that was the higher evolution of the 356, but did everything just a tick better. With more interior room, better handling, and more power the 911 took Porsche to the next level. In the ‘60’s the highest evolution of the 911, was the 911S. In 1968, the 911S was not available to the US market, making these cars very rare on our shores.

This barn find for sale in San Francisco, CA is an example of an all original ’68 short wheel base 911S, and a rough one at that.

1968 Porsche 911S Coupe Barnfind on pelicanparts.com

Rare numbers matching 1968 Porsche 911S Coupe. A true California barn find hidden away for many years. A rare Euro only model and 1 of only 227 produced. A California car, since early 1970’s. Original Burgundy Red color. Odometer showing 80,170 kilometers. Original 2.0 liter 911S engine number . Very rare original Sportomatic transmission. The value of the short wheelbase 911S is rising rapidly. $24,995 obo.

No one can deny that barn finds are cool, it’s any car guys dream to be the one that exhumes a piece of automotive history from some old timer’s garage that is just the way it was when it was tucked away decades ago. I for one fantasize about it every time I’m on a road trip in the country. The more you watch the market, the more popular these types of cars are becoming, but where’s the line between barn find, and lost relic? To me the quintessential barn find has 3 major elements, originality, collectability, and preservation. While original, and collectable this car lacks the one element that I would consider to be the most important in a barn find; preservation.

The market for these early Porsches is certainly strong, as these cars are very desirable, with a full concourse ready ’68 911S commanding as much as $92K. That being said, any Porsche 911, especially early models are expensive to restore, since parts are so rare. So where does a car like this fit in to the market? At $24,995, this is a purchase that would have to be made as a labor of love. This car is priced far too strong considering that a restoration on a car like this could spiral out of control very quickly, and could far exceed the $92K high market value.

While few things are cooler than a barn find, but in this case I would say that it’s best to consider a sound, more complete car.

Post for the Daytona 500, 1977 Porsche 911S

As well as being Valentine’s Day it is also the Daytona 500. While I thought about posting that ran in the 1985 24 hours of Daytona, on eBay for $685,000, instead I found this Porsche 911 for sale in Daytona Florida and the kicker is if you watch the video in the auction showing off the car, you can hear the NASCAR boys practicing for the 500 at the track in the background. (How’s that for relevant tie-in?) Listen at the start of this video:

The rust free 111,985 mile car has that funky copper paint, but looks to be in need of a respray. That copper color sometimes strikes me as ok, other times it looks kind of ugly. The car has a 5-speed that the seller states shifts well and an engine in good shape, that leaks a touch of oil.

This one needs a bit of work, but it is very nice to see such an honest seller that lays out all the minor imperfections instead of trying to hide them. The little things that could be fixed don’t appear to be highly urgent so one could enjoy the car while fixing it up. This looks like it would make a great around town and weekend driver just as it sits.
$5,500 no reserve opening bid.

1967 Porsche 911S: Guest Post from Dallas

Note: Dallas is a fan of our site and wanted to contribute on occasion. Here is his first guest post. Please say hi in the comments! -dc

This one is described as a ““. For people that know even a little about vintage Porsches, this is like describing a vintage watch as a “Rolex Submariner 5513 5517” – it’s sort of like nonsense. Just as there are “Submariner 5513s” (cool vintage Rolex watches) and “Submariner 5517s” (very cool incredibly valuable only-issued-to-the-Royal-Navy vintage Rolex watches), there is the “1967 Porsche 911 Coupe” (cool vintage car) and “1967 Porsche 911S” (very cool quite rare vintage car). Let me elaborate…

By 1967, Porsche was into the third model year of its seminal 901/911 series of rear-engined sports cars. For model year 1967 the factory introduced the “S” model as the range-topping version, featuring a hotted-up engine boasting 160bhp – 30 more than the base Coupe and Targa. The factory produced just 1,823 “S” coupes and 483 “S” Targas that year. Despite the power boost, some considered that the S models made inferior street drivers as the increased power was made partly at the expense of low-end torque. However, nowadays, S cars are highly sought after, and an original S can bring serious money. Which brings us to the car on auction…

First off, the car looks fantastic. I’d have left off the racing numbers as a matter of taste, but I think the white stripes and “Porsche” script look great against the dark green paintwork. The cosmetics of this car just look super, with nice Fuchs wheels (introduced on the ’67 S) presenting the classic, iconic short-wheelbase 911 look.

Where things get a bit chancy with this example is in the description, and the question of whether the car is a real “S”. With collector Porsches, much of the price premium is based on originality – original engine and equipment in particular, and whether the car was originally built as the variant it is billed as, or converted later as a “clone”. Porsche will even issue, for a fee, a “Certificate of Authenticity” that confirms the original trim level, equipment, and paint colour of a vintage 911. The seller states:

“this car was born as a straight 911 homologated to an “S” back in the 70’s.”

When I queried the seller as to what this actually means (I asked point-blank “does the CoA issued by Porsche list it as an “S”?), the reply was rather unclear. The seller stated in an email that an S engine was installed in 1984 but the auction description states that the “homologation” occurred in the ’70s. It was apparently “born a 911” (i.e. not an “S”) so I would place a caveat on the description accordingly. The fact that an incorrect VIN was quoted in the auction (and not yet corrected) doesn’t help the comfort level. Once the correct VIN is posted, all questions will be answered… a real factory 1967 “S” has an “S” suffix to the VIN.

A hallmark of this seller’s auctions appears to be extensive quotation of “factory history” information on the marque, but it’s unclear how this relates to the car in question. In particular, the seller quotes extensively regarding the special equipment supplied with the “S”, but doesn’t actually confirm that the car for sale (“born a 911 [non-S]”, remember) comes with the special parts.

I give the seller kudos for listing a telephone number for inquiries, and I hope that a prospective buyer will avail himself of the opportunity of speaking to the seller and clarifying these issues. While a minty real “S” might now bring ~$40K+ (notwithstanding the dreamers asking $100K or more), this car should be considered accordingly. I think an enthusiast would do well to acquire a totally-sorted turn-key (and beautiful) ’67 911 Coupe with non-matching engine like this one for ~$20-25K.

**Note that this car is listed for sale at the seller’s website www.myclassiccargarage.com for $42,500.
