The 1967 Porsche 911 S is the first “S” model 911 offered and has been identified as one of the top Porsche collectibles by Sports Car Market, Haggerty, and other top automotive resources. However, the reasons aren’t just because it was the first and there aren’t many complete examples remaining; but rather, they are one of the purest forms of a Porsche 911. They were the culmination of competitive racing for over 15-years distilled into a production road car. Furthermore, very few examples in original slate grey have survived over the years.
This Porsche was built on June 13th, 1967 and sold new on August 18th, 1967 to the fist owner, Joan Ruggerio of Hollywood, California. It was ordered with the following equipment:
Webasto Heater (0207 386)
Blaupunkt Frankfurt radio (US band)
Dunlop Tires (165/15)
Although not much is known about this 911’s early life, it appears that it stayed in California between two owners for over 25-years. The 2nd owner was John Hawkins of Fair Oaks, California. We have receipts dating back to the mid 1980’s. It appears that he repainted the car Viper Green and used it for local PCA time trial and autocross events (see pics).
The car was then sold to the third owner, Stim Kennedy on November 5th, 1993. Stim lived in Colorado and was active in the Porsche racing scene. For the next two-years, he invested quite a bit to get the car ready for track events. It received a fuel cell, full cage, repaired front suspension pan, mechanical freshening, etc. He did a couple of events in 1994 with his good friend Dale Thero. Finally, on December 22nd, 1995, he sold the car to Dale. For the next 12+ years, Dale used the car for various track events, club racing, and instruction. He was very active in his local PCA community. During this 911’s track tenure, it was never hit or damaged. Finally, after nearly 18-years of enjoyment, he sold the car to its current owner on March 12th, 2012. Before selling the car, Dale considered restoring the car himself. He started to amass original/important parts for the restoration. Unfortunately, he didn’t have the time for the project.
The current owner employed the help of David Imes of Apex (top local Porsche restorer) in Lakewood, Colorado for the task. The car was completely disassembled and the body taken down to the bare metal. We have nearly every receipt of the restoration process. This was not a rust pile that was revived. It was a very straight and dry chassis with no signs of damage or misuse. Because it had been a track car for so long, many parts were missing. A 1967 912 was located and used as a donor for some of the trim, radio, and other detail pieces. Whatever else was needed was purchased from top providers such as Porsche, Sierra Madre, and Stoddards.
The goal of this restoration was to build a solid and honest ’67 911S that would be great for the driver/enthusiast. Although the quality and craftsmanship of the body, paint, assembly, etc. are top notch, this was not built to be a car that rolled on and off a trailer as it is paraded around to various concours events. Instead, it was built to go out and drive. Something that one could enjoy without feeling like value was being sucked out of it with every mile it was driven.
Highlights of the restoration include:
Gauges restored by North Hollywood Speedo
Correct Early S 40IDS3C Weber carburetors (rebuilt)
Interior parts provided by Autos International
Complete rebuild of gearbox with final gears AFMSZ
Turbo tie rod kit including correct SWB ends
Correct orange rear defrost tubes
Restored original chain tensioners
All the chrome trim/window frames re-plated
Correct factory date stamped 4.5”x15” Fuchs (restored in proper finish)
The motor was taken apart and everything was in good working order. The crank was verified correct and polished. The rods were refurbished. The pistons and cylinders were in very good condition and cleaned/reused. The heads, guides, springs, and valves were all replaced or restored. All the bearings were replaced along with all new seals and various fasteners. The motor is tight and very dry. It has excellent power.
The paint and body are excellent. There are no signs of use. It is fresh. The panel fit is equally as nice with near perfect gaps. The doors close with that signature “ping.” The interior is all new/restored. It looks and smells fresh. All the gauges operate properly. The Webasto heater is still in the car, but not connected for safety reasons.
This 911 S drives fantastic. Once it warms up, it has excellent power throughout the rev range with no hesitation or unusual sounds. The handling is light and nimble yet precise. The brakes have that signature Porsche bite and have great pedal pressure feel. The clutch engages perfectly and the gearbox shifts smoothly with no grinding.
This Porsche comes with the original owners manual, spare tire/wheel, original jack, Certificate of Authenticity, Kardex, and all the restoration receipts as well as records going back 30-years.
