We found this 1970 911T in northern California with 65,000 miles and its original Signal Orange paint. This car was purchased new at Carlsen Porsche/Audi on 8/10/1970, then moved close by to San Mateo. It remained in the Bay Area for the next 43 years.
This was an excellent, rust free car with no signs of any damage, however, after days of rubbing we couldn’t bring the original paint back to our standards. Therefore, we were forced to repaint the car – and, as usual that was only the beginning. With our standards for detail, once we make one thing on a car as close to perfect as possible, it’s very difficult for us to not take it all the way to perfection.
The engine had great service records and had recently had the chain tensioners rebuilt, but the update is cheap insurance and the engine had to be cleaned anyway. We pulled it out, serviced and cleaned it.
The interior was original, but just didn’t match the finish of the engine and exterior. The carpet, headliner, dashboard and door pockets were redone and a set of German reproduction sport seats were installed*.
This is an exceptional 911T in a very desirable color with its books, records and toolkit.
*Original seats are included with purchase of this vehicle.
