1969 PORSCHE 911 S 2.0

KEY FACTS

  • This Porsche 911 S is a rare and desirable car which has been owned and meticulously rebuilt over the past 10 years by renowned specialist Francis Tuthill.
  • In the rear sits the original 2.0-litre engine producing up to 170bhp and driving the rear wheels through the five-speed manual gearbox.
  • Originally delivered to the US, this left hand-drive 911 S is a complete, ‘matching numbers’ car that was imported to the UK and registered with the DVLA in March 2011.

EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES

  • It is presented in the original colour scheme of Tangerine over a black vinyl interior.
  • The chassis number confirms this car left the factory in 1969 with the range-topping S engine, which remains in the car today, along with the original gearbox.
  • The jack, spare wheel and tool kit are present, and will be accompanied by detailed records of recent maintenance work and the V5 document.

CONDITION

  • There is no known body work damage and the vendor notes how solid the original underside of the car is.
  • Resprayed in the original hue of Tangerine over 10 years ago, the paintwork presents in very good condition, showing minor stone chips to the front end, small chips to the leading edges of the doors and a touched in mark above the driver’s side door handle.
  • The chrome bumpers, grilles and other trims exhibit very minor signs of the cars age, but present smartly, and are complete.
  • All four of the original 15-inch Fuchs alloy wheels are in very good order.
  • Inside, the cabin presents very smartly, with the seats, carpets and main contact points in very good order. The passenger side window winder has been replaced since the photos were taken, and a glove box has been fitted.
  • The most recent MOT test was on 29 March 2012, which was a pass with one advisory regarding slight play in the offside front wheel bearing, which has since been rectified. It is exempt from mandatory testing based on age.

SERVICE HISTORY

  • Over the course of the last 10 years the car has been subject to an extensive rebuild by marque specialist Francis Tuthill.
  • As part of this process, the engine was stripped and rebuilt in 2020, including the mechanical fuel injection pump.
  • The car is presented for sale fresh from its final assembly.
