In 1985, the first owner replaced the 2.2L motor with a T-spec 2.4L motor #6530653 ordered direct from West Germany and air freighted over via Lufthansa cargo. As such, the car is not numbers matching but it was a worthwhile upgrade, as it performs much better than original. More recently, the current owner has had the correct date-coded Fuchs professionally refinished and fitted lowered ride height, Pirelli P6000 tires, and performance front and rear sway bars. Another noteworthy upgrade are Hella H4 headlamps, a welcome addition for night time visibility. Recent servicing includes; new Porterfield brake pads, all 4 calipers rebuilt, all fluids changed, new oil lines, fresh valve adjustment, new distributor cap, coil, spark plugs, and plug wires. Both front tie rods have been replaced, a fresh 4-wheel alignment has been performed, and the Solex carburetors were just rebuilt.
All this work helps to make this 911T very reliable, fun, and daily drivable. The clutch operation is good and the transmission shifts smoothly and easily up/down in all gears.
If you are looking for an early 911 that you won’t be afraid to put some miles on, this would be a fantastic addition to your stable. This is one of the best documented early 911s on the market and it is ready for a third owner to enjoy the next chapters of its life ahead.
