1967 PORSCHE 911 S for sale!
Imagine: the house is quiet, the birds have a particularly welcoming song, and the aromas of fresh coffee grounds brewing and warming idle exhaust fumes are swirling together to set the stage for the ultimate Saturday morning. Maybe you are headed to a Cars & Coffee, about to tack on another long and twisty cruise, or just going to browse the hardware store to plan out that project you’ve been meaning to get to. Whatever the reason, you know this is the car you want to do it in. As that garage cracks open, the light cascades and begins to reveal this Polo Red 1967 911S. Little details like the lower fog lights and the roll bar begin to emerge and bring a smirk of excitement for what’s to come.
CPR Classic is thrilled to offer this wonderful 1967 Porsche 911S finished in Polo Red over a Black interior that comes with an interesting race history. First sold in California and nicely optioned with Webasto heater, tinted glass, loudspeaker, antenna, Dunlop tires, and a black leatherette interior, the beginning of the story for this 67 911S may have the same beginning as most others, but its racing history is where it gets a whole lot more fun, and the next chapter is up to you.
As the car was approaching its mid-20s, the prospect of pursuing a journey of vintage rally events was becoming evident as noted by its successful career in Colorado and California, but the real prize came during the La Carrera Panamericana in Mexico. The owner at that time had finally found this car in Northern California, and in his mind, it was the perfect car to bring to his shop in Texas for prep to tackle the 1,900-mile cross-country trek traversing up the spine of Mexico across deserts and mountains that is the La Carrera Panamericana.
It was during this time that the car underwent extensive race preparations and a mild restoration including a complete engine rebuild by Steve Henry of Eagle Racing in Dripping Springs, Texas. The La Carrera Panamericana is a grueling 7-day race and everything needs to work perfectly. The entire car was thoroughly inspected and all mechanical systems were rebuilt including the original 901 transmission. During the restoration, the car was repainted in its original factory color, Polo Red, and affectionately named the car “Conejo Rojo – Red Rabbit”. Final preparations included fitting Porsche race seats, a roll cage, and proper timing equipment for rally checkpoints.
It was now 2003 and the car was shipped to Mexico where it was entered into the La Carrera Panamericana. There it won 5 of 7 stages, placed first in class, and 9th overall out of 76 cars. The 67 911S went on to race its’ celebratory final rallies in the American vintage circuit.
Following its’ victorious racing career, it received a second mild restoration at Kundensport in California. The matching numbers transmission was rebuilt in 2018. Though the original matching numbers engine was taken out years ago, the current 2.0-liter engine (the same one that won the La Carrera Panamericana) is the correct spec 911 engine built to S specs. All brightwork has been re-chromed, the original glass only shows a few minor scratches, and the windshield has been replaced with Sigla glass. The one-year-only 5.5” Fuchs were refinished as well and are wrapped in Pirelli Cinturato tires.
The most recent owner elected to add a front-mounted oil cooler with thru body oil lines and also sourced rare period-correct Porsche racing bucket seats. The car had one more round of fame by having been featured on the television series Gas Monkey Garage.
Now imagine again, as you find yourself standing in the garage with the now empty cup of coffee and warm engine calling you closer, you enter the race-inspired interior with a radio delete and rear seat delete; fit securely in the bucket seats you only have one decision to make: which racing memory will you let this car channel into you that morning.
