This 1971 Porsche 911T is claimed to be mechanically restored and rust free, and waits for its next owner to make final paint and interior choices. Find it here on eBay for a fraction of its build cost.
Considering the extent to which long-hood 911s were modified to look like racecars or the later 964, 993 and rubber-bumpered Porsches, untouched project cars like this are becoming a rare sight. Straight, claimed to be rust free, and with the desirable “S” front apron this 911T retains all of the visual charm that made the 911 one of the most recognizable automotive shapes ever penned. Perhaps best of all, this car’s original color is the eye catching and beautiful Albert Blue.
Underneath the 911 has received a comprehensive rebuild and updating within the last 15,000 miles. The 2.4 liter flat six has been rebuilt to RS specs with S cams, pistons and cylinders. The mechanical fuel injection has been rebuilt to S specs as well by a well-regarded outfit and the entire engine benefits from Carrera chain tensioners and the fender mounted S oil cooler. Handling revisions include a full Carrera front suspension with polyurethane bushings and complete corner balancing.
Inside the 911 shows its racing intentions with a stripped interior, MOMO one-piece race seats and TRW five point harnesses. The good news is that the dash (with all of its expensive components) remains, and the floorboards look incredibly clean and solid.
If this long hood were ours we’d paint it the original Albert Blue, install a correct interior kit, and find some factory optional sport seats with hounds tooth inserts. That, or take it to the track immediately.
