In 2011 the car was discovered still in Victorville by Gary McKillip’s of McKillips’ Auto who is well known for trading in British classic cars (mostly Jaguars) and some European cars. It was collected from the desert (photo attached) and was in remarkable condition and sold on to well know Porsche enthusiast and part-time Porsche racer George Valerio (trading as EuroSport) of 1825 Shamrock Lane, Lincoln, CA 95648.
It was George who gathered all of the early information on the car and was about to restore the 911 but decided he and needed space for another project.
So in 2014 he sold the car to Vincent Vandenberghe of Vandenberghe Garage, Kortrijksesteenweg 168 9830, Sint-Martens-Latem, Belgium.
While the car was for sale at Vandenberghe Garage it was inspected by Michael Roock of Roock Sportsystem, Leverkusen Germany and purchased on behalf of a UK client who sent the car straight to Roock for a nut and bolt restoration.
Prior to restoration the car was 100% complete and was in remarkable condition retaining all of its original components, the body shell required very little in the way of rot repairs and apart from new front wings the remainder of the body shell is original.
The car is fully matching numbers even retaining its original date stamped wheels.
This car represents a very rare opportunity to acquire a beautifully restored and very original, fully matching numbered 1965 Porsche 911 Coupe finished in its original colour scheme.
