In 1964, the Porsche ‘901’ was born in Stuttgart. After Armand Peugeot and Ferdinand Porsche had argued over the 0 in the middle, Ferdinand decided to give up. Something to do with the motto; Choose your battles. The ‘911’ was an instant hit; Today, Porsche is equivalent to the 911 in name recognition.
In 1972, the ‘Ur-911’er’ was slightly modified before becoming the G model. This modification proved perfect on paper. After the battery was split in two in the nose for weight distribution, the fluids distribution could not be left behind. From there, an oil system was chosen which could be refilled with an ‘oil valve’ at the rear. Everything was better in the old days, filling stations were manned and they even filled up for you! You guessed it; most 72’ers ran on mixed fuel… However, this one was born on 2/1/1972, so one of only a few non-Olklappes!
Other than that, of course, ours is as you’ve come to expect.
