    '. . . 1969 Porsche 911S Coupe finished in its original color combination of Tangerine over Black with factory houndstooth inserts. This example has a wonderfully detailed history and has been treated to a very high level of restoration.

    -High-quality repaint in its as-delivered Tangerine
    -Interior in the CoA-correct combination of black leatherette with Houndstooth inserts
    -Completely numbers-matching example, including engine and gearbox
    -Factory option with Comfort Package, Golde electric sunroof, tinted glass, and Michelin tires.

    This US market 911S completed production on November 14th, 1968, and was delivered to its first owner in Kent, Washington on November 25th, 1968. After just over two years of ownership, the car was sold to its second owner on December 10th, 1970 where it remained within the family with several members for the next 44 years. The car remained with the second owner until April 23rd of 1979 when it was sold to the second owner's cousin. The second owner's cousin then kept the car for the next nine years before selling the car to the second owner's son on September 28th, 1988. The car remained with the second owner's son for the next 26 years. In 2014, the car was sent to Kundensport in Oxnard, California to be restored but sold shortly thereafter to CarparcUSA where the restoration was completed.

    This example was put through a detailed restoration by Carparc, where an emphasis on retaining as many original parts as possible was applied. The car arrived at Carparc having already completed its body restoration and paint. Carparc began assembly and performed the following work:

    The original wiring harness was disassembled and repaired as necessary. All instruments were sent to Palo Alto Speedometer for their respective overhauls. The car received a new starter, voltage regulator, alternator, and a set of NOS Hella 169 fog lights were sourced and installed.

    The sunroof mechanism was overhauled by Carparc in-house, and the interior was completed by Autos International of Escondido, California. The vast majority of interior components were in outstanding original condition and were retained including the window cranks, dash knobs, door handles (inside and out), shift knob, and boot and front door pockets. The original dash was recovered, and Autos International installed a carpet and insulation kit, headliner, the refurbished dash, and rebuilt and recovered front seats and knee bolsters.

    Carparc performed the transmission overhaul in-house which included all new bearings, all new synchro rings including dog teeth, pilot bearing, throwout bearing, and new bushings. A new flywheel and clutch kit was installed on the engine.

    The matching numbers engine was overhauled in-house at Carparc as well. The oil-bypass modification was performed, case savers were installed, and new NOS Mahle weighed and balanced pistons were sourced with new Mahle cylinders. New rods were installed, the crankshaft was micro-polished, and the engine case alignment was checked to be in factory spec. The engine received new timing chains, chain guides, chain gears, and updated 930 chain tensioners. The engine heads were fully re-machined and overhauled by Degroff Cylinder Head Service in Northridge, California. Mark Jung of MFI Werks rebuilt and calibrated the mechanical fuel injection system.

    The car's suspension and brakes were completely overhauled, including new surface finishes, bushings, bearings, and Koni dampers. The car was then aligned and corner balanced. The date-stamped original Fuchs wheels were refinished and reinstalled on the car
