This Porsche falls into a similar category as the last Porsche that made it here, uber clean, somewhat modded, and well documented.
The listing provides good information, (some a bit over the top description), a little history, and plenty of photos. Because of the modifications, this 911 can’t quite figure out whether it is a E, T, S, RS, or SC, the VIN shows it started life as a US model E series 911T. An easy identifying feature on this car is the ölklappe, oil filler flap, mounted behind the passenger door on the rear fender. This feature only appeared for this one year after too many Porsche drivers were finding their service attendants filling the oil tank with gasoline.
This car was updated in 1989 with a 3.0 180 horsepower SC engine. Presumably the other mods and restoration work like the repaint occurred at the same time.
The car comes with a set of deep lipped Fuchs 6Jx15 alloy rims and European H4 headlights. It also has a nice combination or original and custom interior bits.
The seller is a bit shady on the actual mileage, only listing that it has covered 5,300 miles since the modifications. Someone who is good enough to write such an elaborate description, really should know better and should have included the actual chassis mileage in the space eBay provides.
The seller does have a binder full of receipts documenting the car’s service history, which is always a nice bonus.
If one was looking for an original 1972 911T, this is not the car, but if you were looking for a vintage 911 that is partially original with a well cared for history and tasteful restoration and modification, this could be the one.
It is listed on a British site for £21,950 or about $35,400.
Nice car but the seller is looking for top dollar for a car that is essentially a mutt. (Albeit a very attractive, well-turned out hot rod, but a mutt nonetheless).
It has a replacement engine from a different series 911 (so is not even an original “type” engine) and in its original form, was the lowest-spec 911 available in the USA. The 1972-only “oelklappen” feature makes it interesting, but I’m not aware that this feature has been seen as particularly desirable on its own merit, but is notable really only as a one-year oddity.
When I saw this listing I knew I had seen the car before. It has also been listed for sale at “The Kent Collection” website at 21,950GBP, and two weeks ago went to $25,600 on eBay with reserve not met.
Someone will get what looks like a very nice driver/hot rod but will pay a good dollar for it.
