A once in a lifetime opportunity! This is an amazingly original 1972 911T that was delivered new to California and has only had 2 careful owners. The last owner was an aircraft pilot and over the last few years he has tastefully upgraded this rare Sepia Brown 911T into a subtle street racing sleeper. He upgraded the car to 2.7Liters and added 911 SC suspension and 911S brakes.
The previous owners of this car have been very meticulous with it, most of the paintwork and the interior are all original. This 38year old Porsche has never been restored!!! This is truly an amazing find! The last owner bought it back in 1978 and he always kept it in a garage and had it detailed on a regular basis.
When the previous owner retired he decided to upgrade his 911T, he contacted Dwight Mitchell and had him upgrade the original engine case to 2.7 liter, identical to a desirable 1973 Carrera RS. The intakes were modified to improve low end torque, the case has been shuffle pinned and line bored, the heads were rebuilt and ported/polished and matched to the throttle bodies, all new factory S injection parts were employed. Stainless steel heat exchangers and a Dansk single outlet muffler (all polished) were fitted. The car received factory 911S brass oil cooler lines with a fender-mounted Turbatrol oil cooler. Wevo engine mounts secure the engine onto the body. The transmission is the original 915 (matching numbers) upgraded with a Quaiffe limited slip differential and coupled to a Wevo short shifter. Only the best was good enough.
The Brakes were upgraded to 911S specification and the front suspension came from a 911SC, all powder coated and detailed. It has Koni adjustable shock absorbers, 21mm and 26mm torsion bars. He added 19mm sway bars (Wrightwood) with Zerkite bushings and a black powder-coated Weltmeister strut tower brace. The wheels are 7″X15″ Factory Fuchs, in their original “Frosted” finish. Finally a 911S front bumper was added to make the car even more stable at high speeds. The car has been fully aligned and corner balanced, it’s ready to be enjoyed on the street or at track days.
This car is truly as clean inside as outside, top to bottom, and with all it’s mechanical upgrades it really is a blast to drive! The car comes with its original steering wheel, Fuchs spare tire and original books/toolkit.
