Restoring an early production 911 is far more difficult than most realize. It really all starts with the condition of the car before the work starts. The majority of the trim and details are not available even as reproduction. Most of the reproduction parts are generic for all short wheel base (SWB) 911s. As Porsche was ramping up their production capabilities for the new 911 model back in 1964/65, there were frequent changes to the details throughout the first few thousand models making much of the trim and components virtually non-existent.
This 911 was produced on July 22nd, 1965 and delivered new by Brumos Porsche of Jacksonville to a W.A. Stockton of West Palm Beach on September 22nd, 1965. It lived most of its life in Florida. It was ordered with the following factory options:
Webasto heater (01 549)
Tinted glass all around
Wheel caps w/crest
Exterior mirror left
Phoenix tires (165/15)
The owner of this ’65 was fortunate that he found a car that had mechanical failure decades ago. This was key to this car surviving. When the engine failed on this 911, apparently, it was simply tucked away in a garage and covered. As a result, most of the unique details and metal were preserved. This example was very complete with an extensive list of original parts to the car. Some highly skilled and well-respected craftsmen carefully restored these components. These original parts include:
All corner lights
Hella fog lights
All metal panels (correct vin stampings)
Passenger fender washer fluid bag (original)
Correct shock towers
Original floor and front pan
Hood latch panel
Correct concave button door handles
Correct unique handles on ashtray and glove box
All window trim
4-screw horn grills
Original hood crest
Stainless door thresholds
Correct unrestored sun visors
Shift lever and knob (correct year bend)
Correct factory leather shift and hand brake boots
All glass original (except correct stamped replacement windscreen)
Date stamped gauges
Brass ignition bezel
Engine cover grill with brass buttons
Correct 4-button dash
Original factory tool kit and jack (wrenches restored)
07/65 Date stamped wheels (all 5)
Correct cast iron distributor
Correct Nadella half shaft axles
80-90% of all the hardware is original and re-plated
All latches and hinges are original/correct Karmax parts
*NOTE: The original Webasto heater system comes with the car. It is unrestored but complete. Due to safety issues, the owner decided not to install this into the car.
These are just highlights of some of the rare parts this 911 has. The list goes on with correct date stamped engine parts as well (see pics).
This was a three-year restoration. The owner is a long time Porsche enthusiast who also enjoys finding rare and original parts. While work was being done, he combed the country for any other correct and original parts he could find for this project. Some of the best in the industry were employed to help restore this 911. Peter Sorensen with PBR Restorations was in charge of the drivetrain rebuild/restoration. Based in Northern California, Peter is recognized as one of the top engine builders in the area. Aaron Burnham in Camarillo refurbished the original Solex carburetors. Eric with PMB Performance restored the original brakes.
The paint and bodywork as well as assembly were given to Brandon Penserini of Altissimo in Napa, California. Brandon’s work has been recognized not only at the Pebble Beach Concours, but also recent wins at the Good Guys show.
Finally, Autos International restored the interior. Even the carpet is correctly restored with the cloth bindings (vs. vinyl) found on these early production 911s.
Although this example has mostly original parts, in the few cases, none could be found; new parts were purchased directly from Porsche with the exception of the heat exchangers and exhaust, which are from Dansk. This car had very rare ’64 production heat exchangers, which were decided to be used for the owner’s ’64 restoration project currently under way.
The cosmetic condition is excellent and fresh. The paint looks great with no blemishes. All the original brightwork has been restored. The correct date stamped wheels wear new Vredestein tires. The interior looks equally as nice as everything has been restored. The wood dash has been properly finished as well.
Recently, we had a local Porsche specialist go through the car, tune it, and make sure everything operates properly.
The car is a fresh restoration so we put 100 shakedown miles on it. The power is strong and very responsive. We’ve adjusted the Solex carbs a few times. They will probably need to be further adjusted as the car breaks in. It holds idle at start with no smoking. Once it warms up, it drives great.
This Porsche comes with the owner’s manual, spare tire/wheel, original tool kit, jack, build photos, copy of the Kardex, and Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.
