Description

First registered in August 1973 and one of only 59 UK-supplied, right-hand drive,E-Series911E TargasFitted with the 165bhp, 2.4-litre flat-six, with the later K-Jetronic CIS fuel injectionFactory optioned with a steel Targatop, 911 Sair dam and a five-speed gearboxThe subject of a total rebuild from 2010- 2012including a full engine rebuildNow superbly finished in Mercedes Silver over a new black interiorCorrespondence from the Porsche Club GB Early 911 Register confirming matching numbersRight-hand drive, ETargas from 1973 are incredibly rare making this example eminently collectableOne of only 59 UK-supplied,right-hand drive,911E Targas from 1973, 321SXV was initially registered as NMR 720M on the 20th of August to its first owner in Wiltshire. Originally finished in Gold/Bronze, the car morphed into black circa 1986 and was finally changed in 2012 to the classic shade ofMercedes Silver it wears today. It was factory optioned with a five-speed gearbox, the front air dam from the Sand a steel Targa roof.Within the history file, there is somecorrespondence from the Porsche Club GB Early 911 Registerconfirming that this appears to be amatching numbers example although not certificated as such. Itscurrent custodian has owned this beauty for some 20 years (within his company initially and then privately) and it was used as his daily driver for years.In 2010,it was decided to return the little Porsche to its former glory andPCT Porsche Services in Coventry were called upon to fully rebuild the car.The engine was taken out and sent to Motor Meister in Downey, California to be rebuilt. They were (at the time) well-respected engine builders and the invoices returned with the engine are very detailed and professional. Whilst the engine was away, PCT carried on with the rebuild at a pace dictated by our vendor.The gearbox had beenrebuilt previously (documented) so this was left as it was and anew clutch installed. Over the following two years, the car was comprehensively refurbished includingthe whole interior andtheFuchs alloys were refinishedto the original specification. Replacement door cards have beendifficult to find so slightly later examples have been fitted, however, the originals are still available with the car. The onlyitem still outstanding isthe luggage compartment carpet set which will need putting in.The car was returned to our vendorin 2012 and has been enjoyed as and when time allows, however, it'sbeing used less and less and consequentlyisbeing offered to the market for the first time in 20 years. This is a rare car and wouldgrace any collection.Within the history file in additionto the Porsche Club GB correspondence and the thick pile of invoices from the US engine build and PCT restoration, there is a DVLA list of previous owners,some old MOTs and the usual ownership documents.mediumVideo of the 1973 Porsche 911E 2.4 Targa (MFi)
