During the restoration the body was disassembled, media blasted and repainted 17 years ago in its factory color of Conda Green (2626). The gauges were sent out to be restored by North Hollywood Speedometer. The original wiring harness was used, cleaned, checked for circuit continuity, and rewrapped. The brightwork was re-chromed by Astro Chrome and Polishing. The Fuch alloy wheels were refinished by Weidman’s Wheels.
All the hardware and components were restored per factory specifications. All parts used in the restoration were sourced from Sierra Madre Collection or Stoddard Import Parts. In 2013, the 911T was purchased by the third and current owner who, over the next 7 years, spent time improving the cosmetic and mechanical aspects of the car. On October 10, 2013, Artwerks in Pasadena, California was commissioned to rebuild the transmission. In 2015, the interior was completely reupholstered including carpets, headliner, seats, and rear seats, with houndstooth inserts. According to the current owner, the engine was rebuilt in 2017 and the first 1000-mile service was performed by Pasadena Air Cooled including an oil change and tune up. On December 9, 2021, Rusnak Porsche in Pasadena was commissioned to rebuild the carburetors and flush the fuel lines. The work was performed by Bill Manuel who apprenticed under Vasek Polack, and now is the Head Mechanic for the Classic division at Rusnak Porsche, Pasadena, California. Under 2,500 miles have been added since the engine rebuild. By 2017 the 911T began competing in PCA Street Division concours events.
