According to the Porsche-issued Certificate of Authenticity, this 911 was built as a 1966 model year, and completed at the Zuffenhausen-based Porsche factory in April of 1966. It was finished in nearly the same color combination it wears today, 6604 Light Ivory over a black leatherette interior. The new 911 was completed with a long list of optional equipment, a Webasto heater, left hand exterior mirror, and the Blaupunkt Frankfurt radio with loudspeaker and antenna.

The Porsche is believed to have been sold new in New Mexico, and have had just three owners before being purchased by the consignor some years ago. Between 2009 and 2013, the early 911 was treated to a comprehensive restoration. The exterior was stripped to bare metal, the necessary rust work performed, and elegantly finished light ivory while the exterior trim, seals and gaskets were replaced or refurbished as necessary, yet keeping as many original parts as possible. A new black interior was installed, with the seats neatly accented by houndstooth inserts. The wood-paneled dash and steering wheel was refurbished as well, as was the period Blaupunkt radio. The matching-numbers engine and transmission was gone through, and an MSD-triggered ignition system was installed with stock points. A new SSI exhaust system was fitted, and the optional Webasto heater was restored, although it has not been operated with gasoline yet. The Porsche retains the original cast iron weights in the front bumper corners, originally installed by dealers to improve the handling of the early short wheelbase cars.

This early 911 has been driven less than 1,300 miles since the restoration work was performed, and the current odometer reading of less than 58,000 miles is in fact believed to be the car’s original mileage. The Porsche is offered with the Certificate of Authenticity, restoration photos, a correct tool kit and jack, and features the optional rear seat delete unit that provides a great package shelf. A matching-numbers example presented on correct type silver-painted steel wheels with chrome hubcaps and shod on Vredestein Classic tires, this early 911 Coupe looks just right.
