This is an incredibly original 1966 Porsche 911 that was recently purchased by a customer from out of town. This car had previously been owned by a single family who took great care of the car as it was handed from generation to generation. The car came to us with over 10 boxes properly labeled, and full of parts that had been replaced on the Porsche. This documentation is incredibly cool, to see many parts that have come off the car as well as dates as to when they were removed. We love to see others treat cars the way we would. Documentation and identification of parts is a good portion of the battle.
Over the past ten years or so, that car has sat indoors without much running. It came in for the Farland Classic Restoration treatment. We started out by running the car through its paces. As unique and original as this Porsche is, anytime a classic car sits it invites issues. Thankfully after running the first-year 911 a bit we found there were some fuel issues as well as some worn suspension componentry. Not a whole lot wrong with the car, all things considered.
Now the car is up on the lift having the fuel system fixed up. This includes working on the fuel lines and putting in new rear shocks and suspension componentry under the front of the vehicle. This one will be up for consignment soon enough. Like usual, the cars seem to come in pairs, check out the Porsche 911E that came in a few weeks back!
