This Porsche 911S is sequentially the 836th of only 1,430 examples built in 1973. Chassis 0836 was a special-order vehicle completed at the request of Forest Lane Porsche Audi in Dallas, Texas on behalf of a prominent and highly favored local client. The original order specified a low-option “S” model without the “S” trim and with tinted windows as well as air conditioning with the exterior finished in the standard color of Bahia Red with Black leatherette interior. No other options were specified or requested.
This Porsche remained in single family ownership from completion in the Spring of 1973 until June of 2013. In that 40-year time frame, this Porsche 911S covered only 64,424 original and well cared for miles. The family greatly treasured this particular Porsche as evidenced by a large and highly detailed documentation album consisting of records and receipts during their ownership along with tools and owner’s manual and pouch.
In 1996 with 56,000 miles having been covered, this Porsche was carefully treated to a full mechanical and cosmetic rebuild that focused on keep the car as original and correct as possible. The work continued over the next five years and cumulated in the full rebuild and refitting of the original high-output type 911/53 “S” engine.
Today, this Porsche has covered a total of 64,424 documented, original miles from new. This 911S is without any known mechanical or cosmetic defects and even the ultra-fussy original clock still functions and keeps perfect time. The original stock steering wheel is included along with the updated one shown in the inspection photos.
Rust and accident free, early 911S models are highly sought after today and few truly outstanding example find their way to market. This is particular example as such represents a very rare chance at a truly spectacular example and I encourage all interested potential buyers to contact me at their soonest convenience.
