Thread: 1968 911l-bloomington, IN

    1968 911l-bloomington, IN

    1968 911L, odometer reads 122xxx for miles, white, tan interior. With a little work, it's a good driver. Engine seems to run well, but needs to be set up. I tried, and it got better, but is still has some stumbles at part throttle. I rebuilt front calipers, but rear calipers need to be rebuilt, and it may need a master cylinder, as I haven't been able to get the pedal to feel correct. Still feels spongy, and I have bled it repeatedly. Transmission/engine were rebuilt approx 20000 miles ago according to the previous owner. Transmission shifts okay when warm, but cold it's a bit slow into 2nd, and linkage needs to be rebushed. Floor pans are solid and original, but there is one small soft spot that would need to be addressed near the front of the passenger compartment floor pans. Car was painted, and color changed from maroon to white. There are a few spots of surface rust that need attention, as the car sat outside for a while before I got it, but nothing structural. If it was going to be a driver, they need to be touched up. If it is to be a show car, it would need to be painted. Interior needs work. It's all there, but the carpet is faded, the headliner is somewhat dirty, and there are some water stains on the rear interior panels. Would be a perfect starting point for someone who wants to build a R clone, and doesn't want to do a lot of rust repair. I have some records from the previous owners. I have a lot more pictures, and can take more pictures if needed. Feel free to pm me for a phone # and I can go into more detail. I know I am forgetting a lot.

    $12500 or best.

    Car is located in Bloomington, Indiana.

    Please post the 118 VIN number. Thanks.

    11810311, and engine number is 3080314. I don't have a coa, ao I can't tell if that is the original motor, but it seems to fall in the right range.

    Thanks for the VIN info. The engine is 99%+ matching numbers. Looks like a ROW ("rest of the world") 911L. ROW= most of the time rust-prone German (area) Porsches but not always, as in ROW Italian cars for example. Looks decent enough from what we can see. Good luck!

    I wish I knew more about it. I have a collection of paperwork for it that goes back to the 70's, but it's not in the best order, and some has faded to the point that you can't read it. I have pictures from when it was painted last time, and it had the rockers replaced at that time.

    Yes, I'm sure. The table you posted has errors in VIN number decoding (and therefore associated engine numbers). As stated this is a ROW 911L (imported into U.S. by a private owner, no doubt, sometime after 1968) Here is correct table I put together for the confusing, many model 1968's.

    What is a "ROW" 911L? I thought the 911L was a one year only 1968 car only exported to the USA because of emissions laws not allowing the 1968 911S with a real S motor to be sold there, making the 911L a 911S wihtout the "S" motor. Something with real knowledge on this please clarify for me.

    I don't qualify for that (what is real knowledge??) but you can find this information in the little spec book (65-67 models) on page 10. The L was sold outside of the US too. BTW why is outside the USA the Rest of the World? ;-)

    Well, the German's called them that. Why? Probably because at that time the good old U.S. of A. was about 50% of Porsche's sales! So, the balance of about half of the production going all over the world was ROW.
