David Loop European performed the complete mechanical work for the car including full overhauls of the numbers matching engine, gearbox, suspension, and braking systems. Following assembly, the car was sent to K&H interiors where a complete new interior in black leather was installed. All of the car’s chrome was refinished by Superior Chrome and the car’s zinc and chromate components were refinished by Swift Metal Finishing. The original Fuchs wheels were refinished by renowned specialist Harvey Weidman.
Following restoration, the car was entered into the 2016 Carmel By The Sea Concours and took first place in its class, certifying the outstanding level and attention to detail that was performed during the restoration.
The car was minimally optioned from the factory to include a Websato heater, warning lights, and Dunlop tires. The Webasto heater was fully restored and reinstalled in the car during the restoration but was disabled as period gas heaters were not designed with safety in mind and could be a potential fire hazard. At some point, a set of very rare and valuable 1967 factory sport seats were sourced for the interior and were restored when the interior was completed. Although not original to the car, the sport seats round out the aesthetic of the interior and provide much better support for spirited driving.
This 1967 Porche 911S Soft Window Targa is one of just 483 built and presents as likely the nicest example available anywhere in the world. Factory soft window targas have become one of the most valuable and sought-after 911s that one can own and add to a collection. This example has been painstakingly restored and retains all of its factory original panels. The level of finish from the exterior paint down to the most superficial of nuts and bolts is second to none and will provide its next owner with both the experience of a better than new 1967 911 and a car that can be entered into any concours event immediately with a strong chance of winning. If you are in the market to add a blue-chip early 911 to your Porsche collection, this is a must-consider example.
