I remember years ago my father recanting the story about how he almost bought a used Porsche 911T in the early 1970s, only for his better sense to kick in and find something a bit less expensive. Enter, then, the Fiat 124 Spider and the eternal nagging of what might have been. Frequently I consider what a great investment a car like this would have been, if it were kept in the family all these years. Then again, considering a car like this as an investment would have missed the point at the time, as we would have used it as intended. Sure to satisfy that sports car hunger, this 1969 911S for sale in New York has benefitted form a bare metal respray and a sympathetic restoration.

The 1969 911S is considered the quintessential 911 driving experience. This one has matching numbers and Kardex. The only year of the fuel injected 2-liter engine combined with the uprated suspension of the S model made this the closest a driver could come to the factory race cars of the time. A well documented service history from 3 meticulous owners provides confidence of condition and performance. The car is finished in Signal Yellow with a black interior, this beautiful classic has had a bare metal respray, interior refreshening and a complete drivetrain rebuild. The car needs nothing except for the new owner to enjoy the experience on the show and driving circuit. Please call for inspection or information: (914) 997-9133
Top of the lineup for 1969, the 911S is highly prized in the collector market today. This one is priced at the high end of the range, but this looks to be a car with few excuses that thankfully comes with the Certificate of Authenticity (Kardex). It will be interesting to watch these early 911 models over the next decade. Has the market leveled off for these cars, or is there room for growth? I’d certainly think given their popularity over the years, they probably aren’t going to get any cheaper.
