Seldom do you have the opportunity to go back in time. In this case you can go back to the time and place where a legend was born. The Porsche 911.
This 1965 Porsche 911 chassis 302470 was finished on the 6th day of October in 1965 and as the number indicates was the 2470th made.
Originally purchased at Harper Motors in Charlottesville Va. by a computer programmer for the National Radio Astronomy Observatory it is thought to have lived its entire life in Virginia. After a 25 year lapse in history it resurfaced in the Richmond area and was purchased by the gentleman that sold it to the current owner.
It is reported to have had a professional restoration in 1990 with the original color Polo Red /6602 that shows very well today. The interior is said to be the original black leatherette in very good condition with patina in all the right places.
The original chrome wheels with the correct date stamps are included with the car however a newer set are mounted on the car with Vredestein Sprint Classic tires. All the glass is thought to be original.
The Kardex indicates that the engine number is correct however I suspect that there is a clerical error in the transmission number. The Kardex shows 223447 but the actual number is 223497. You decide.
The odometer shows 25999 but is inoperative. Not unusual for a 55 year old classic but it will be sold as TMU true mileage unknown.
The engine has the uber rare 6 Solex carburators with the twin fuel pump. Both have been recently restored and run great. The axles are the unique Nadella style.
Included with the car are : Owners manual, Jack, Tool kit, sales brochure, color chart, and COA.
I have been fortunate to have owned a 1964 911 for more than 46 years and know a thing or two about these first generation cars. I have personally inspected and driven this car and can tell you that it runs, drives, and shifts correctly. It is a beautiful example of the first generation….Keith Martin
