The 1969 Porsche 911 was the first major change to the 911 design. This one-year only example was the beginning of the longer wheelbase 911s and many other significant changes. The Karmann body cars were the lightest chassis built and as a result, most of them were cut up to be racecars or hot rods…very few of the original 3,500 examples have survived.

This 911 was built on September 11th, 1969 and sold new by Trans Atlantic Motor Cars Porsche dealer in New York, New York on October 17th, 1969 to the J.B. Williams Co, Inc. of Cranford, New Jersey. It is one of the last built 1969 model year cars I’ve seen. As a result, it has some details of the 1970 chassis changes. It was ordered with the following options:

5-speed transmission

Chrome wheels

Bumper guards front and rear

Retractable antenna, left

Blaupunkt radio, Frankfurt USA

HCD ignition

Pirelli tires

The MSRP was $6,380

Annetta Chester, wife of one of the company officers, was the primary driver. Her husband gave her the car as a wedding gift. Within a year, Robert and Annetta Chester relocated to Florida and brought the car with them. By the late 70’s, they moved to Northern California. From there on, the car lived in the Southwest at the owner’s various homes. By the mid 1990’s, it ended up at the Chester’s vacation home in Scottsdale, Arizona where it remained until the current owner found the car in January of 2015.

Throughout the years, the car was always well maintained and serviced. We have a 3-ring leather binder with most records from new. The car was regularly driven. It was never stored or parked. Highlights of significant services over the years while in the Chester’s care included:

Upgrade to larger (911SC) front brakes-calipers and discs (@ 112k-miles)

Annual oil service and brake flush

Replace all door and window seals and other misc. worn rubber (@ 107k-miles)

Complete repaint at cost of $17k (@ 104k-miles/2005)

Replaced fuel pump (@ 89k-miles)

Installed new oil return tubes/align all rocker shafts (@ 89k-miles)

Front Bilstein shocks replaced/install front swaybar (@ 89k-miles)

Original factory 15x6 refurbished flat Fuchs purchased (@ 94k-miles)

Since the car was relocated to Arizona, Ken Rosegay, owner of Zuffenhausen, has been servicing the car. Ken is a highly respected early Porsche specialist in the area. Shortly after purchasing the car, the current owner employed Ken to go through various items on the car and prepare it for the annual Monte Shelton Classic Car Rally (vintage speed controlled time/distance fun rally) that the owner had been participating in for many years. The list of services were extensive and included:

Cosmetically refurbish engine (drivetrain was removed…see pics)

Zinc chromate plate various engine parts

Repair oil leaks

Replace worn out throttle linkage bushings

New oil return tubes

Replace many engine seals

New fan belt and pulley

Repair gearshift linkage

Replace axle boots

Install new rear Bilstein shocks

Update to turbo tie rods

Repair front sway bar links

Repair vacuum leak/tune carburetors

Alignment

New starter motor

New Coco mats (all 4)

In total, the owner spent over $22,000 getting the car ready for fun driving/touring.

Upon receiving the car from the current owner to help sell on consignment, we took the car for an extended test-drive as well and had our local Porsche specialist inspect the car. The car drove great with excellent road manners. We found an issue with a fuel smell and difficulty starting the car once warm. The mechanic discovered that the fuel pump needed to be replaced as it was running too much pressure. Furthermore, the mechanic found an oil leak on the O-ring on the #1 main bearing. Ken at Zuffenhausen had resealed it but to repair it properly the engine case would have to be opened. Although the engine runs fantastically, number 5-cylinder is low on compressions (75 psi) and leakdown (75%).

This Porsche is a very nice driver. It is in nice condition and presents very well. Many years ago, the car was completely repainted and the job was performed quite well. There are a few minor blemishes (see pics), but, all in all, very good for a 10+ year old paint job. The original color was Irish green, but it was repainted a shade of Leaf green (slightly darker than the factory Leaf green). It appears that that the car was repainted because it was hit on the rear. A very well respected Porsche specialist looked at the work done and said that although it was clear that repairs were made, they were done very well for the time. The rear cross member was replaced (see pics). The windscreen has also been replaced, but the rest of the glass, brightwork, and deco trim is original and in very good, unrestored condition. The 15x6 flat Fuchs are in excellent condition and are wearing Bridgestone tires with more than half life (although they are a bit older, there are no cracks or signs of age). The front brakes have more than 50% life remaining and the rears are just under 50%.

The interior is in excellent survivor condition and is mostly original except for the dash cover (probably replaced when they did the windshield/painted the car). The seats are in good condition with no rips or tears. The stitching on the driver seat bottom is starting to stretch on one of the seams but is not torn. The seats probably have the original stuffing and are soft. The tilt and slider mechanisms work fine. The seatbelts are original with the correct Repa tags. The headliner is also original and shows some discoloration with a tear by the passenger side C-pillar (see pic). The carpet and door panels are original and in very good condition. The bungee cords on the door pockets are a bit tired and the pockets sag a bit. The dash has a couple small cracks by the speaker grill (see pic). All the gauges work properly except the clock. The radio powers up and plays. All the interior and exterior lights work.

From a driving perspective, this is an excellent original example that is very tight and drives great. The power feels strong with excellent throttle response. Idle is incredibly even at 900 rpm. The 901 gearbox shifts smoothly with no clutch slip or gear grinding. Even shifting into 1st while rolling is easy. The brakes feel strong and the handling is crisp with excellent road feedback. It is easy to see why this car would make a wonderful vintage touring example.

This Porsche comes with the original owners manual, Porsche maintenance record book, Blaupunkt radio pamphlets, most service records from new, original factory invoice/bill of sale, original delivery documents from Porsche, tool kit, spare wheel/tire, and extra keys.
