1967 Porsche 911 Sunroof Coupe

I should get this out of the way from the start: this is not a correct original 1967 Porsche 911 Sunroof coupe. It has seen quite a few modifications, though for the most part those modifications have been done in a manner that is befitting of the original cars that provided these builders with some inspiration. Its lack of originality will mean that it won’t appeal to everyone. Truth be told I’m not entirely sure how much it appeals to me. It is, however, undeniably pretty even wearing a color that most would struggle to find appealing. But here it all seems to work. For details on the full work done to this car see the ad copy below, but, suffice to say, this car has seen extensive work both inside and out, including quite a bit of engine work. All things considered, it’s pretty fantastic!

1967 genuine ‘Sunroof’ 911 an almost 3 year build. It’s rare and desirable to some – less than 200 sunroofs produced in 67, but the car is far from stock and is a non matching color change car…originally Polo Red and now Golden Green a 68 color… the car is a personal build and makes no apology for its correctness or incorrectness – it is what it is, it may disappoint some but will engage the majority.

This is a usable ‘Hotrod 911′, a streetable car that looks and goes the part! This car has the right attitude and goes like a scalded cat. The idea was to build a car that was narrow body SWB with throw backs to late 60’s Porsche and privateer race cars, but with full body and interior trim. The interior is German square weave, lightweight early door panels – leather pulls etc, square weave mats not rubber. New German headliner and window rubber throughout.

Newly rebuilt 2.7motor on a 2.4 7R 73T case, running NOS Triple 40IDA Webers, S cams, BURSCH racing headers and sports muffler, gauze air filters. Petronix electronic ignition and Pertronix Blaster Coil. Rebuilt 5speed 901 box from a 1970’S’, Bilstein suspension, Cibie driving lights, GTS style driver’s seat and stock newly covered passenger seat, 70’s Momo Prototipo and American Racing Torque Thrusts (all a must for the desired look). Front calipers are aluminium 73 RS items.

The bare shell was rotisserie’d and the original factory spot welds of the floor were drilled – the floors were replaced from the rear bucket seats to the front nose section with a NOS factory 1 PIECE complete floor/front pan unit. The floors were then coated liberally as per factory with Wurth Schutz treatment. The car has many new parts, but is a user, the paint is new and deep and well applied.

Green and black ‘S’ clocks/dials, and early door frames. New Euro lenses front and rear and original US spec headlamps. The car is special, set up for fast road and will drive anywhere reliably and swiftly.

Determining a proper selling price here is difficult. An original ’67 911 in this sort of condition and with as few miles as this one would normally hit six figures without much difficulty. I’m not sure this one will, but we’ll see. Early bidding has been strong with the price currently sitting at $65,300 with reserve still on. I imagine the reserve here will be quite high and there’s a good chance the auction ends without a sale. Regardless, this is the sort of car for which word should spread and a buyer will almost certainly be found. It is not going to be for everyone, but that certainly shouldn’t be a strike against the car itself. It’s beautiful with clear homages to its era and is surely a hoot to drive. There will always be a place for just such a car.

  1. never see a 911 with these wheels, and i can´t even imagine one
    look nice

  2. I like this car a lot. However a 45 year old Porsche with a six-figure price tag doesn’t exactly fit my definition of “streetable.” Best of luck to the seller…

  3. The resto/mods by ToSh are amazing! I would love to own a ToSh Classic, no expense is spared and no issues are ever left unaddressed. . The ToSh team moto, “taking something once good, making it better and THEN making it the best it can be”!
