This particular example, 3280588 was completed on March 1st 1968 in Silver (6851) over Black Leather (B) upholstery, fitted with a substantial selection of special optioned equipment such as: US equipment, exterior mirror, spare parts kit, rear window wiper, antenna, loudspeaker, engine noise suppression, 2 headrests – leather, tinted glass – all around, 100 liter gas tank, Recaro sport seats – leather, halogen fog lights, halogen spot light and Dunlop tires. Extraordinary to say the least.
Of significant interest the factory Kardex shows that this 911L was completed March 3, 1968 and purchased by Mr. H.K. Mills of Pontiac, Michigan, via Jabsen Motors of Hong Kong, famed for their introduction of Porsche to Asia in 1955.
The Porsche Kardex for states that 11805188 received multiple services from May-December 1968 while accumulating 12,067 miles in just 5 months (early globetrotting or testing???)! Of note the 911 had 5,311 miles at its first in service of May 6, 1968 just two months after delivery. Scania-Vabis in Sweden is noted as one of the service handlers. The options and early history lead us to believe possible testing or long-distance touring/rally use in period. Of note the transmission type on the Kardex and Porsche Certificate indicates type 904/14 with number 3280871. The 911 eventually made its way home to Michigan, U.S.A., where it would reside for the remainder of its life. After what we can only presume was an exciting life lived, the car was tucked away in garage storage for many years, until its recent discover in Michigan.
Presented as found, 3280588 offers an amazing opportunity for its next caretaker to restore back to former glory and delivery presentation. In addition to the abundance of factory installed equipment, this special 911L would also receive a Golde manual sunroof and aftermarket air conditioning system, while retaining many of its original components.
