1966 Porsche 911

It was September 14, 1965 when Paul and Helen Dickey walked into Vasek Polak's Porsche dealership in Manhattan Beach, California, and signed their names on the bottom line for their new Porsche 911. This is the heaviest optioned short wheelbase 911 we have ever seen with the original bill of sale to back it up! The documentation from new, the options including A/C is incredible and the condition is stunning for a virtually unrestored car. Paul's brother later lamented "I saw Paul's Porsche once, before I moved from California. His love for that vehicle could only be compared to the love he had for his wife." Paul's care for the care is unbelievably well documented. He never worked on the car himself but only the most trusted of mechanics got the job. The 911 was serviced at Polak's shop from the day it was new until late 1974. That was when a few of Vasek's most talented mechanics left him to open their own shop, something called Andial!
In 1975 Paul's 911 had accumulated 95,000 miles and the original paint was no longer up to his very particular standards. He went to one of Southern California's best painters, Big Al Martinez. Al painted so many Porsche's he printed up a brochure explaining what was involved and the difference between lacquer and enamel, as well as custom touches available in 1975. The bare metal re-paint came out to almost $3,000, a huge sum back in 1975. The condition of that paint today is the true testament to its quality. I could continue with a few more decades of history on this 911 but this car really needs to be seen to be believed. This is the best documented early 911 we've seen.
