The 1969 911S cars are finally coming into their own. This was a unique transition year for Porsche and as a result, one of the most unique 911s was produced. The 1969 S had one of the lightest chassis as well as a 2.0 Liter engine derived directly from its race program. Making use of the new mechanical fuel injection, these motors produced 170hp. This combination with the longer wheelbase and lighter chassis produced a true sport purpose car.
This 911 was built on April 11th, 1969 and brought in through Porsche Cars Northwest of Beaverton, Oregon. Merle Taylor Volkswagen/Porsche of Albany, Oregon sold it new on August 6th, 1969 to a Mr. Lyle W. Gilmore of Albany, Oregon. It was only ordered with a loudspeaker in the dash and Michelin tires.
This owner kept the car until 1975. He sold it with around 30k miles to Bob Salvatore of Portland, Oregon. On November 2nd, 1984, Bob had complete rebuild of the drivetrain, which included the following:
New front oil cooler
Full rebuild to transmission with new pinion/gears/synchros/bearings
Refinish/machine cylinder heads
Recondition crankshaft and connecting rods
Balance bottom assembly
Rebuild to 2.2L specification with new Porsche cylinders and pistons
New valves and guides
The total cost was over $14,000. That would be over $36,000 in today’s dollars.
He sold the car in 2005 with around 91k original miles to Billy Morgan, a local enthusiast/collector. Shortly after purchasing the car, Billy took the car to one of the top area independent Porsche specialists and had them go through everything, as he likes his cars in top running condition. Highlights of recent/significant repairs and services include:
Install SSI stainless steal heat exchangers
Rebuild brake calipers and new brake lines
New brake master cylinder
Brake pads and rotors
Overhaul pedal assembly
New heater hoses
Replaced spark plugs
Replaced fuel lines
Restuff/restitch front seats and repair door panels
Ceramic coat OEM muffler
Replace all ignition wires
Upgrade to turbo valve covers
Repair shift linkage and bushings
Finally, a compression test was performed at 94k miles and the results were excellent:
1) 165 2) 170 3) 170 4) 165 5) 170 6) 170
In total, over the last 5,000-miles, more than $12,000 was invested on routine services. This owner shared the car with a close friend over the past several years on vintage touring events throughout the Northwest. The car has always performed flawlessly and been an absolute joy to drive. Finally, at the end of last year, he sold the car to his close friend/co-driver. Unfortunately, this owner really has way to many toys and will not be able to enjoy this early S as much as he thought he would.
Recently, we had a top local Porsche specialist inspect the car and perform a leakdown test. The results were excellent (numbers off of 100%):
1) 5% 2) 6% 3) 8% 4) 8% 5) 6% 6) 5%
Furthermore, the stated that this example was a very nice driver with an excellent chassis. There were a few items they found which the owner just had serviced (in total, $5k more was just invested):
Rebuild MFI pump and properly install
R & R pump/set up and adjust
New valve cover gaskets
New spark plugs
Adjust cam timing and throttle bodies
This example is one of those 911s that has always been cherished and enjoyed. Although it is not perfect, it is indicative of a low-mile/properly maintained and driven Porsche. The car is extremely dry and straight with no signs of damage, rust, or misuse. The black repaint is an older high quality job that looks excellent. It has minor nicks from use but nothing major. The rest of the trim and glass (except the windscreen) are original. The U.S. headlamps have been upgraded with H1 units that are in great original condition. The factory deep 6” Fuchs appear unrestored and in good condition with hand painted center caps (including the spare). They wear Dunlop tires with nearly full tread. The brakes have over 80% remaining as well.
The interior is equally as nice and mostly original. The seats have been re-stuffed. Most of the leatherette is original and there are no tears. The door panels, carpet, and headliner appear to be original as well and in very good condition. The dash top was replaced many years ago and there are no cracks. All the gauges including the clock are original and operate properly. The radio powers up but the speaker is not connected. It appears that the original factory Blaupunkt was most likely installed at the dealer as the original delete plate is included.
The best part is the way this 911 S drives. It is pure Porsche. There is nothing like the way these short stroke early motors free rev. The 2.2L upgrade certainly helps on the low-end grunt. Once you hit 4,000 rpm, the motor feels like it wants to rev forever. Shifting is precise and very smooth with no grinding or any other issues. It is one of the better feeling 901 style transmissions I’ve experienced. The steering is very light and responsive with no pulling or other alignment issues. The brakes have excellent bite with no fading. This would be the ideal long hood 911 for vintage touring events.
This Porsche comes with the original owner’s manual, service maintenance book, Certificate of Authenticity, extra key, spare wheel/tire, jack, and most significant records.
