The Appeal

This fabulous late 911T is in great all-round condition, having been extensively renovated and restored to a very nice and useable, rather than concourse, condition that would look great as part of any collection or in your garage.

The simple lines and design of the 911 are very evident in this model, and it being one of the last first generation 911’s is bound to send some hearts racing and attract a lot of keen interest.

The History and Paperwork

 • First registered in July 1973 
 • Believed to have been extensively restored in around 2007
 • Fully re-commissioned, with engine, suspension and brakes overhaul
 • Current owner bought in 2016 from classic Porsche Specialist
 • 2 original sets of keys
 • Spare wheel and tools
 • V5c photocopy present; the vendor has applied for a new V5c from the DVLA

The Interior

 • Good condition throughout 
 • Black leatherette with cord inserts
 • Recaro comfort seats with headrests
 • Tinted windows
The early 911 Porsche interiors were fairly basic but ergonomically designed around the driver so you could never forget that you’re in a 911. 

The black interior is in great condition, with just the right amount of patina and wear to give the car that lovely classic feel. 

The Exterior

 • Excellent Light Yellow paintwork
 • Chrome bumpers
 • Rear wiper
 • Wheels and tyres all very good
 • Nudge bar & front spoiler
The Light Yellow paintwork, re-sprayed during its renovation, is still looking good with only an unfortunate scratch on the rear left wing detracting slightly from its overall excellent presentation.

All the panels and bodywork are straight and true, with great shut lines and a nicely snug-fitting new Targa roof.

The Fuchs wheels are all in great shape and are all shod with good tyres, with the brushed stainless-steel finish of the Targa hoop really completing the whole classic 911 look.

The Mechanics

 • 2.4 litre air-cooled engine
 • Five speed manual gearbox
 • Fully serviced and ready to enjoy
The last full service was carried out in 2020 in anticipation of an aborted rally (due to covid) in France with the vendors Guernsey Old car club, and the car has done very little mileage since that time. More recently, the car has been checked over and road tested as per the two-page inspection report found in the gallery, which we are happy to say, it passed with flying colours. 

Part of a larger collection of vintage Porsche’s the car has spent some time on the Chanel Islands with its present owner but is now back and ready for a reluctant sale due to some rationalisation of the car collection.

The car drives very nicely, with no issues to report, and the owner has enjoyed trouble-free open-topped motoring throughout his ownership.

The Summary

It’s hard to think of a more iconic classic sports car than the Porsche 911, and this is a great opportunity for someone looking for that special example of an early 911.

The safest way to buy a classic car online

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.

Anti-sniping

Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

Pre-authorisation

We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
