1971 Porsche 911 T

The official first-generation Porsche 911 was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show back in 1963 and was the official all-round replacement for the Porsche 356, improving in overall size, power and comfort. After its debut, it officially went on sale in 1964 and was released in a coupe variant and Targa variant for the 1966 year. The 911 T (or “Touring”) was later introduced as a base model from 1967 as a direct sales competitor to other cars such as the Mercedes Benz 280SL.

When 1969 came around, changes were made to the 911 to improve overall drivability such as lengthening the wheelbase and the front fenders and rear quarter wheel openings were flared to accommodate wider wheels and tyres for superior grip and handling. Upgrades to the interior and comfort were applied too, such as the heating and ventilation systems among other things.

Additional changes were also made to the rear mounted, air-cooled flat-six engine as the engine received a displacement upgrade from the 1970 and 1971 models to 2.2 litres from the original 2 litres which was applied across the entire range of 911 models from the D-series production. The engine was paired to a 5-speed manual transmission that powered the rear wheels and produced 123bhp.

This Example

This (D series) car, chassis number 9111120637, is one of 1934 911 T’s produced by Karmann in 1971 and is paired to a correct 911 T engine with number 61000840 (originally 6110667). This Porsche 911 T was delivered new by AMAG in Switzerland in 1971 and was in regular use until the mid 2000’s when the car was taken off the road for restoration. The restoration was not completed when the current owner purchased the car in 2016 together with a partial service history dating back to the 1990’s.

From 2016 to 2019, Bailey Cars in Boksburg near Johannesburg professionally executed a nut and bolt bare metal restoration sparring no expense. A comprehensive mechanical overhaul enhanced the visceral connection with the road common to pre 1973 Porsche 911’s

Bodywork:

The car was examined for structural damage and rust. No issues were detected. When car was taken down to bare metal it was visible that several panels had minor rust damage or had been modified. Replacement panels were sourced from the leading international specialist in automotive heritage parts, Dansk.

Panels replaced include:

  • Floor panels
  • Parcel shelf
  • Rear engine lid
  • The bonnet
  • Front fenders

The car was media blasted by a specialist and treated with chromate to prevent future rust. The 911 T was then painted in its original Conda Green colour (code 26).

Engine and gearbox:

The engine was rebuilt by Hi Tech engines (Peter Frost). During the build, extended sleeves and pistons were fitted to increase the 2.2l engine capacity to the desirable 2.4l configuration. The engine was setup and dyno tuned prior to installation The gearbox was overhauled and reconditioned, a new exhaust system fitted and a new fuel pump fitted

This is a rare opportunity to purchase a rare classic Porsche 911 that has been restored by a leading specialist and is ready to enjoy.

It is available for viewing at the Crossley & Webb showroom at 15 Solan Road Gardens Cape Town
