This 1965 Porsche 911 is a non-running project that retains its matching-numbers 1,991cc flat-six and 5-speed manual transmission. The car was originally delivered in Bali Blue with a Webasto heater, though it was repainted by a prior owner. Reported to have been stored indoors for at least 22 years by the previous owner, the car was acquired by the seller last month with the intention of performing a restoration. Significant corrosion has developed on the undercarriage and body panels, and the original carbs have been replaced with Webers. The car is sold with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and a clean South Carolina title in the owner’s name.
Finished in Bali Blue from the factory, the body was repainted red by a previous owner. Factory glass appears intact, and the car retains a complete set of chrome hubcaps.
Bubbling can be seen along the rockers, above the rear bumper, on the deck lid, and elsewhere as pictured above and in the gallery.
Interior trim, seats, rear seats, and door panels appear complete but have rotted from prolonged exposure to moisture. Modifications appear limited to an older aftermarket stereo and shift knob.
A series of gallery photos show the condition of the front and rear interior floors and the dash underside. The front compartment can be seen above and contains a Webasto auxiliary blower.
The original 1,991cc flat-six is appears to be largely complete but has not been started for at least 22 years according to the seller. Weber carburetors have been installed in place of the original Solex units, though one carb is currently uninstalled as shown in the gallery below.
Engine #902196 can be seen above and matches the number provided on the CoA. Transmission #101926 is shown in the gallery and is also original.
The Porsche Certificate of Authenticity confirms the powertrain numbers, colors, and factory options.
