FOR SALE; PORSCHE 911 CARRERA 2.7 MFI // UK RHD // RARE 'BITTER CHOCOLATE' PAINT

EQUIPMENT
Electric Sunroof, Carrera chrome trim, Gold Carrera graphics, Blaupunkt Radio/Cassette, Wider rear wheels, Tool kit, Jack, Spare wheel, Crested centre caps, Air compressor

EXTERIOR
The short bonnet G series chassis will forever remain a hallmark of automotive design and this outstanding example presents in a period shade of the wonderfully named ‘Bitter Chocolate’. This MFI has been subject to a comprehensive cosmetic overhaul whilst in the US with marque specialists Autobahn of Costa Mesa, including a bare-metal and glass-out re-spray of the body shell with the correct gold carrera graphics. As such the car is in first class condition with M446 bright work that tastefully offsets the body with mirrors, headlight surrounds and door handles all in superb order. As one would expect, grilles, rubbers and trim are as new whilst lights remain chip and crack free.

INTERIOR
The Cinnamon light-grain leatherette upholstery presents incredibly fresh and clean having been replaced during restoration in the States. The leather and carpet is offset distinctively with a black dash and door handle / storage combination that succeeds in a styling union further enhanced by new old stock sun visors, fresh carpet and weaved mats. Optional equipment includes the very desirable M650 Electric sunroof whilst there is also a period-correct Blaupunkt AM/FM stereo with a tape player, speakers and an antenna. Instrumentation and switch gear is clean, crisp and fully operational.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Having been treated to a top end overhaul, the flat 6 sits in fine order and performs strongly with that distinctive bark synonymous with MFI units. The gearbox mechanism has been overhauled and adjustments including a new clutch fork bush and cable ensure the drivetrain remains fluid and smooth. The engine is completely dry and presents in excellent cosmetic order having had a mechanical check and tune with marque specialist Andy Prill in the past along with a further more recent tune by Autofarm.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The special crested Fuchs wheels are staggered fitment with wider rears from new, showing wonderfully well with a polished lip wrapped in excellent Michelin rubber. The brake discs and pads have just been de-glazed all round during the most recent service and as such perform admirably with strong bite and feel

HISTORY FILE
Delivered new to London, England in December 1973, Chassis 600485 is supplied with its original matching-numbers engine, date-coded and colour-matching optional wide wheels and centre caps, a jack, an original tool kit, a spare wheel and correct gold Carrera graphics.

A considerable portfolio of receipts and work orders dating back to the 1970s offer excellent provenance, with marque specialist Charles Ivey responsible for the majority of service work early on. An ownership timeline is present in the history file that tracks its whereabouts between car collections worldwide, alongside an extensive recent restoration work from both Australia and the United States. Also included is a factory Technical Specifications booklet, a Carrera supplemented original owner’s manual in a perfect maroon vinyl cover and of course, a Certificate of Authenticity.

The car has covered nominal mileage since restoration, primarily to break in the freshly rebuilt 2.7 engine, has been health checked by Prill Porsche Classics and more recently with Autofarm.

Please visit our website for a full write up and additional photographs.

The car is supplied having had an extensive intake inspection. Warranty, Finance, Part Exchange and Worldwide shipping are all available on request.
