The work performed totaled over $10,000 and included all major service items that would be necessary after sitting for thirty-four years. The fuel system, braking system, MFI, and suspension were all gone through. The pneumatic front suspension that is unique to this era of 911E was swapped out for traditional 911 parts as everyone has done by now. In 2014 after 2,000 miles of road use by the original family, this car was sold to an avid Porsche collector in Fairbanks, Alaska. While in his care, maintenance was done as needed, but the work was so thoroughly done by John Walker’s Workshop, not much was necessary.
The body is in excellent shape and wears mostly orignal paint. The left rear fender was painted after being scraped on the garage and the lower hood and headlight area was resprayed to cover up rock chips. The paint match is excellent and is only noticeably via meter readings. The Targa top is in good shape and fits well. The headliner was replaced a few years ago. The Fuchs wheels on this 911E are the ultra-desirable 15″ “Deep Sixes.” The interior is very good with original dash and door pockets in excellent shape. The vinyl seat covers have a nice patina and the cushions have just been rebuilt. Up front, the trunk is solid with no rust or battery acid problems. The engine is original to the car and has never been rebuilt. It fires right up and doesn’t smoke or smell of oil although drops can be found underneath from time to time. The transmission shifts smoothly and the clutch and brakes feel good. This is one of the best driving and early 911s we have had in a long time.
Included in the sale of very well cared for 911E is the original window sticker, warranty book, registrations from new until the early 1980s, owner’s manual and some service records.
