THE '72 911

The 911 was introduced at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September 1963, meeting all the criteria set out by Dr Porsche. It resembled the previous model but was more powerful, smoother, quieter, and had more space for people and luggage than the 356. The 911 body was functional and breathtakingly attractive in an ageless design that has remained remarkably consistent and incredibly pure to the original design right up to the current 911 offerings.

By 1972, the year of the attractive and fully restored example presented here, the engine displacement had been increased to 2,341 cc (2.4 litres) which produced 140 hp in the 911 T version. An interesting feature for the 1972 model year was that all 911s for that model year boasted an external oil-filler cap on the right-hand side in addition to the usual fuel-filler cap at the front left. This would lead to confusion at petrol stations, so the external oil-filler cap was removed for the following year, making this a one-year-only feature.

THIS 2.4T

Not a lot is known on the early history of this 2.4T but the car was delivered new in Avignon, France. The last owner acquired the car in 2019 at Eleven Cars (Paris) who had it for sale on behalve of mr Philippe Dro, the owner of Ferdinand Magazine. He in turn bought the car in 2016 and had the body restored, the engine rebuilt, the mechanics overhauled... and documented everything in several articles in his magazine. At the time the 911 T was purchased as a restoration project.

The 911 T underwent an extensive restoration and is presented in incredible condition today. Taken to bare metal and properly prepared with new metal where required, it was then painted in a gorgeous shade of Light Ivory and upholstered in black leather with corduroy inserts. The engine is correct for this year and model. The gearbox was fully rebuilt just last year.

Providing a beautiful contrast to the paint, a proper set of polished Fuchs wheels complete the car’s good looks. According to the documents on record; this car was delivered new to France as presented today.

Having driven only 10.250km since said restoration; the car still presents beautifully well. The car comes with an unused spare wheel, battery cut off switch, lots of invoices, the original French manual and correct Sonauto badge. There's a lovely Terratrip rally meter that is included in the sale as well.

With photographs and invoices chronicling the restoration over the course of two years, this 911 is ready to be driven and enjoyed by its next lucky custodian.

The car currently has Belgian registration.
