Like Jesse’s recent Thunderbird post, this 1966 Porsche 911 is a barn find that was cleaned up and prepared for the new owner to take it to whatever level they want to, or just drive it now. It comes complete with its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and is listed for sale here on eBay for the
bargain price of $130,000. Bidding is up to over $100,000 but hasn’t met the reserve yet. No, I’m not kidding. It’s located in Sunnyvale, Texas.
The seller says this is what the car looks like after cleaning and buffing. I’d say they did a nice job! I’ve got some dirty cars I’d like to turn them loose on. They do describe some door dings and scratches, and there are some dents in the nose as well. The car was stored for twenty years prior to being cleaned up and partially readied for the road.
Now you may think they just cleaned up the engine and put some stock parts back on it. Nope. This was a full engine-out rebuild to original specifications. The transmission was rebuilt at the same time. Both now have under 200 miles on them. The car itself is showing 93,431 miles. Naturally, they also had other mechanical work done, including new brake pads, rebuilt brake calipers, new brake lines, new gas lines, a refurbished gas tank, new shocks and a new set of tires (including the spare).
Being a thorough seller, they have also included pictures of the underside of the car, which looks used but not abused. This also gives you a nice shot of the newly rebuilt mechanical components and new mounts for them.
I don’t think you’ll be disappointed by the inside of the car either–at least if you like early 911s. I’m not too sure about that radio, though; it really spoils the period appearance (although if you’re driving it you might feel otherwise).
The seats are pretty good looking as well. I guess it’s an acquired taste (early 911s)? Are you interested in spending small house money on acquiring this Texas find?
