This 1966 Porsche is the “Holly Grail”, an all original 911. In 1974 Bob Gould bought this Porsche in Quebec Canada. The car was advertised for sale in Montreal by a locale Cello player for the price of $5000 as 100% original. Bob was experiencing his last gasp of the single life while courting his soon to be wife Francine. Bob and Francine started their love affaire with Porsche and it outlasted the 911 and its still going strong today with their 356’s. After 31 years they sold the 911 in 2005 to a collector in New York.
While in his possession she was lovingly detailed and cared for and sparingly driven around the Hampton’s.
I found Bob’s number in the records and called him to chat about his 911. This well taken car of car has been featured in two of Dennis Adler’s Porsche books and had been shown in several Porsche Parades. Bob had to have the decklid painted after a ding (no dent guys back then) and the drivers side door had a spot touched up before he bought it in 1974. The original all leather interior features headrest and a “Frankfurt” radio as well as the webasto gas heater to help on those cool Canadian days.
Bob was most proud of the engine detail job he performed when he had to rebuild the engine due to a burnt piston. Saying a car is documented is one thing, backing it up is another. Bob and Francine back this story up! The End!
