    This could become a bargain. The car is poorly represented but it’s not a POS.

    Why are we saying this engine is not the original? Looks to be a 67S motor by the stamping.

    Horrible rivets, but both vin plates look to be original.

    Very Rare 1967 Porsche 911S with sun-roof in a stunning Silver with Black Leatherette Coupe with Fuchs Wheels (5.5 inches not original for road safety reason) for sell.

    We have original steering wheel but it has not been restored which is included in this sell.
    We do not have the original 4.5 inches wheels.

    We have original steering wheels and it is included in this sale. (Not in Pictures)

    This Porsche has been maintained by Allen and Jeff from AASE Motors in Fullerton, CA 92831.


    We also used Benton Performance in Anaheim, CA 92806 to fix all of rusty body parts, turning up engine, turning up transmission and torque tube.


    Engine has been completely restored.

    Transmission has been completely restored.

    Calibrator has been completely restored.

    Interior has been original. (original carpet and inside) We can take it to professional that we know from Escondido, CA. We will add the cost of it after the auction if requested.


    We have 4 new tires for it waiting to be put on and we can also redo the wheel at Al Reed Polishing Inc in Anaheim, CA. We have quotes from them to re-do the wheels. We will add the cost of it after the auction if requested.

    The new paint has been put on 2018.


    First Year, first-generation 911S

    Great for everyday driver or collection!


    In 1966, Porsche introduced the more powerful 911S with Type 901/02 engine producing 160 PS (120 kW; 160 hp) in Europe Came to United States in 1967. Forged aluminum alloy wheels from Fuchs, with a 5-spoke design, were offered for the first time.


    It wasn’t until 1966 that Porsche addressed the relative lack of performance with the 911S. Forged alloy pistons helped lift the power output to 160 hp (119 kW) which brought an incremental improvement to the performance, while Fuchs alloy wheel and vented disc brakes meant it could be taken straight out on the track.


    The 911S was followed by faster models with more glorious competition records, so it was largely ignored by collectors for decades. But in the last few years, as prices for the iconic 2.7 Carrera RS have rocketed, collectors have come back around to it. And the one you see here is among the very best examples in the world.


    In 1967 Porsche expanded the model range with the 911S. This really marked the beginning of the 911 as a genuine performance car, both on the street and the racetrack. This was also the first year for the Targa. 1968 marked the beginning of government influence on automobile design and emissions, such that Porsche was afraid the 1968 S might not meet emission standards and opted not to market it in the US. In retrospect it probably would have passed, but Porsche could not take the chance of having to ship large numbers of cars back to Germany. Porsche also brought out the Sportomatic transmission in 1968. The semi-automatic gearbox was an attempt to broaden the appeal of the car to those who didn’t like using a clutch.

    -------------------------------------

    thank god the calibrator was completely restored. those things are EXPENSIVE on a SWB.

    It's also not the original engine nor transmission to the car. No wonder the seller never got a COA. "Original specs and options" should be taken with a grain of salt, it was taken out of color and had a red interior originally.

    Caveat emptor.

    A real shame it wasn't treated to a quality restoration, a factory black S with red interior and sunroof is seriously rare. The missing OG engine? Maybe the original is out there.
    But so many other faults are inexcusable: color and interior choices... door latch panel as has been noted, iffy execution on other details. Missed the target by a mile.

    Handled properly this car could be something special.

    Can you link me to this information? I'm interested in the car, but would like to know where you guys are pulling the engine and trans numbers from and confirming them as not original to this car. Thanks!

    Robbie, the cars and engines didn't come out of the factory with a 1:1 correlation in numbers but they have a rough ordering about them. This engine number is about 800 too high for that chassis number.

    You have to pay up to get the registry list, I have an old list which has this car on it, no engine number listed against it, anybody know the owner from Corona?
