When a car is found in a barn or garage setting, a few scenarios are possible: it’s parked on a concrete pad with a car cover; it’s parked over dirt with a cover; or, it’s parked over dirt and completely unprotected, aside from whatever trash gets tossed in said garage/barn. That’s certainly the setting for this barn-find 1969 Porsche 911E here on craigslist, which is listed on the Los Angeles page but appears to be in New Hampshire.
There’s no price listed and very few details aside from the seller mentioning that it’s been in the same family ownership since 1975. As a pre-’74 model, this would fall into the desirable “long-hood” category of 911s, but it also is more susceptible to rust than the later cars. That, as you can see, is definitely a factor on this example, which appears to have rust blossoming from multiple locations along the body.
I’m a bit thrown off by the rear, as I thought a 1969 model would have the pretty chrome bumpers with narrower overriders attached – this appears to be a bumper from a later car. But the front end appears correct, with the vents inboard of the sidemarkers just under the headlights. Given the presence of a later rear wing, it’s possible a previous owner attempted to give this 911 the appearance of a later car.
The interior is quite messy, with a cracked dash, dirty cloth seats and a hodge-podge of mats covering the floor. The three-spoke steering wheel (a Prototipo, perhaps?) looks smart despite the rough surroundings, and that might even be an original, or at least period correct, radio. Overall, this 911 has plenty of questions and will need a lot of love to return to form, and the seller’s request for “real offers, no nonsense” may give you some sense of where his head is at.
