Description

We are glad to present this gorgeous Champagne Yellow 1965 911 2.0 Short Wheel Base. This car was delivered new to the US in April of 1965, it remained there for a few decades where it was owned by a famous baseball player of the time before being brought back to Europe by its then new owner following a "barn find".

The car came to Europe in 2016 where it was subject to a full "nuts and bolts" restoration by a known specialist. The car was stripped to its bare shell, every part and every screw were removed and restored. The matching engine and gearbox as well as the infamous Solex carburettors were fully rebuilt. Since the restoration completed the car has driven just over 7'000 km and has been serviced once a year.

This 911 is presented in a condition you would expect it to be after a full restoration, it is immaculate. Being a 1965 model (chassis 300828) this 911 is eligible for the Peter Auto 2L cup.

A complete restoration handbook, Kardex, original service book, original owner's manual as well as several registration documents and invoices accompany this beautiful 911 SWB. The car was also featured on the cover and in a 5 page article in the Porsche specialised magazine "Excellence" from the US.

The car is currently registered and located in Monaco with EU tax paid.
