For Sale
Up for sale is a nice 1971 Porsche 911T. It has been well cared for and has often been used as a daily driver. It looks very good from 20 feet, and is a blast to drive. The engine has 140kmi - though a 2.2T engine probably has many years before it needs to be rebuilt (top end/valve rebuild at 115mki) The brakes were rebuilt a year or two ago including two new calipers.

It also includes many extras that will be good for basic Drivers Education events. (racing seats/harnesses/truss bar, etc.) I bought this car from a relative of the head mechanic at a highly respected Porsche garage in Salt Lake City. It had a very solid chassis and was a replacement for a 911 that I left in England. It's also a very reliable car that served as my primary summer transportation for several years. It spent most of the past 2 years stored indoors.(started every month or two) With 7 cars on the property, it's time to sell it to someone new.

1971 was a good year for Porsche, not only were they dominating rally racing, they won 1st in all three classes at the 24 Hours of Le Mans - a 911S winning the Grand Touring class.

It a solid chassis desert car that was brought to the salty roads of Connecticut four years ago. (stored indoors for 6 months each year) The silver paint is on top of the original tan paint. There are 5-6 spots showing bubbles (one behind the drivers door has metalic tape since it was getting worse). It is a good candidate to be freshened up or just driven for a few more years.

The interior of the trunk is still tan and there are a few tiny areas where you can see chips in the silver paint that show the tan. (if you look carefully) Also, the roof is showing microscratches that might be able to be buffed out.

It has a smooth, easy reving 2.2l 6 cyl. 911T engine. (The underappreciated short stroke blends good power with decent fuel economy and runs forever.) The engine has 140kmi - and had a top end rebuild 25kmi ago. I had the engine and tranmission out roughly a year ago (to replace the clutch). Everything looked solid - showing wear but not needing attention.

The engine is fed by a pair of Weber 40IDS carbs (Porsche put these all of their early race cars - similar to the stock but with an extra high rpm fuel feed). I never found them difficult to tune up. (I used an air flow gage to get them balanced - and the installed air/fuel gauge helps.). It comes with various venturies so you can play with the jetting. Right now it is tuned slightly rich for power (about 15-20 mpg). I leaned it out to 30mpg for a trip cross country, and even had it up to 40mpg once on a highway trip in a rain storm.

Note: It has the recommended engine updates (for reliability) including the '84 Carrera chain tensioners, idler wheels, etc. Also, four years ago, I sent the carbs off to be remachined, plated, etc. ($1000 process that makes them brand new again.)

It is comfortable inside and very presentable. The original seats are not as firm as a modern car but they are quite comfortable. The dash has a dash pad presumably to cover sun/heat cracks. The carpets are in good condition and it smells good.

The original clock in the dash is not working (perhaps from a blown fuse). The fuel mixture guage is currently in it's space. Also, the aftermarket CD player doesn't appear to load cds. (I spent maybe 5 minutes playing with it in the 5 years I've had the car).

There is a small rip in the drivers side of the headliner, the door "map pockets" are a little beat up. Otherwise everything is perfect.
