    Auction Description:

    *Final year of the longhood 911
    *Offered from a near 40-year present ownership
    *Matching numbers example
    *Tremendous factory equipment

    Originally sold by Continental Porsche & Audi in Portland, OR, this luscious 911S left the factory in fall 1972 wearing color code 62 Light Yellow paint. Factory equipped with an electric sunroof, Koni shocks, sport seats, a limited slip differential, an auxiliary oil cooler and Pirelli-wrapped Fuchs, the retail price of 0714 was easily pushed into the lower teens (a substantial increase over base $9,500). A Mr. Victor Powell of Gresham, OR purchased the S-car in February of 1973 and retained it until '75. Changing hands four times after Mr. Powell, the car was offered once again in 1981.

    With a 2-seat 914 failing to meet the needs of a growing family and with a wife convinced, this 4-seat rear-engined 911S was purchased. A family car as it was initially to be, so it remained for the succeeding 38 years. From learning "stick" to later highlights in a Portland high school yearbook as "cool student cars," the 911 dutifully filled its role. Continually maintained and kept out of the Pacific Northwest's precipitation, this 911 has seen a mere 1,400 annual miles on average since purchase. Although few invoices exist between 1973-81, every receipt from '81 onwards is present in the vehicle's portfolio.

    Later in 0714's life, it was decided that a restoration was in order and Redline Service in Tucson, AZ was selected as the shop to perform the services. In late 2012, the car was driven south from Portland and the operation began. The engine and transmission, matching numbers of course, both were rebuilt, cleaned, and reassembled. The body, taken down to the bare metal, was painted correct light yellow while the interior and its sport seats were reupholstered in brown leatherette. Redline completed the restoration in May the following year. Shortly afterwards, 0714 began its renewed life not just as a driver but as a concours participant.

    Supplied with its correct spare, tool roll, jack, manuals and supporting documents from new as well as a factory issued Certificate of Authenticity, this 911 checks all the necessary boxes. Offered from a near 40-year ownership, any Porsche enthusiast seeking a solid and drivable example of one of Zuffenhausen's most exciting sports cars need look no further.

    It was a decent car... Only two bidders... Daniel Schmidt and Me... It will be for sale on his website in the future (I believe).

    I looked it over pretty close. It was rough, poor body work, and based on the sunroof seal installation, all work is suspect.

    Can't wait to finally compare Sports Car Market write ups with reality, now that GLed is on the ground in AZ.
