Detail about this Porsche, by owner
1969 911T (2.0L) Targa, Webers, rebuilt 5-spd, #119110979. NO RESERVE.
Please ensure you have read the full description. This car is being sold as a NON-RUNNING VEHICLE. This means it cannot be driven without some serious maintenance being performed. At minimum an engine teardown and rebuild or installation of a replacement engine. Also there is STRUCTURAL RUST-THROUGH in the Trunk Pan and outer sills.
The car is currently in located Northeast North Carolina.
I originally purchased this car in Pensacola, Florida, in 2003. The car has been in North Carolina since 2006 and has a clear North Carolina title and current registration.
I recently replaced the original 2.0l engine case #6192065 with 2.0l engine case #6191431 during a recently completed three year rebuild. The original engine had developed problems with the Intermediate Shaft Bearing (around 2006). I obtained a replacement 2.0l engine (from the same year) and completed a build-up of the replacement case, using new parts where needed (main bearings, intermediate shaft, two pistons / rings, gaskets, seals, O-rings, etc). I had previously completed a full rebuild of the original 2.0T engine in 2003. Engine rebuild (2003) included the following (most parts new at the time):
Main, intermediate shaft and oil pump bearings, rings, tensioners, upgraded chain guides, 930 lower rocker covers, 50% replacement of rocker arms and shafts, rocker arm shaft seals, rebuilt Bosch distributor (I still have the Marelli and cap), new plug wires, new seals, new gaskets, new oil pressure sending unit.
While attempting to start the engine for the first time (2014), I heard a mechanical knocking deep inside the motor. I pulled all of the covers and visually inspected everything (cam timing, rockers, oil circulation) and cannot find an external cause for the knocking. I was able to get the car started, but the knocking sound did not go away. I trailered the car to the local Porsche mechanic and he said that what ever it is, it is not good. I think that there is something in the #3/#6 cylinder area causing the knocking because when I turn the engine by hand, there is binding as #3 piston is coming to TDC. The engine will turn over on the starter with no problems, other than the knocking sound. The only way to figure out what is going on is to tear down and inspect.
The 5-speed transmission (#733830) was rebuilt in 2003 and has less than 5000 miles on it. I recently replaced the input shaft seal and gear selector shaft seal since they were leaking from lack of use. The tranny is filled with new Red Line oil. The tires have less than 5000 miles on them and still look new but are showing dry checking on the sidewalls from lack of use.
Overall the body is in descent shape (10-footer) but the cheap paint re-spray completed by the previous owner more than 10 years ago, is starting to give up in places and is starting to bubble in several places. The interior is in great shape considering its age. May be original. The car has buckets with the waffle-weave pattern, no rips or tears. The dash cover is unmarked and has no cracks. It may have been replaced but I do not know. The lower knee-pad has dry-rot. The front passenger seat does not lean forward but I have a new release cable to fix it. The passenger interior door handle is broken. The speakers were installed prior to my ownership.
The forward lower pan area, in front of fuel tank, has rusted through (see pics). In the lower right side where the front torsion bar bolts to the front pan, there is rust-through of the structural member to the outside of the torsion bar mount (pics). This looks pretty UNSAFE and I would recommend replacing the front pan before too many miles are accumulated. There are some small rust areas on the body but most are barely noticeable. The floor pans were by the previous owner, with the proper replacement parts and are holding up very well. However, I noticed some areas of rust through in the bottom of the right sill towards the back of the car (pics). I do not think this will affect the performance of the car but I want to make sure you are fully informed.
Here is a short list of items that will need attention that I haven’t mentioned already:
- Carbs – When I had the car running, I noticed the right carb was leaking gas. May be a stuck float from lack of use, may need a rebuild.
- Alternator – Although it is wired correctly I do not thin that the ground is making good contact with the alternator, since the red GEN light stayed on when the engine was momentarily started. Also, I had no oil temp on the gauge. This probably means that the battery will not charge until this is fixed.
- Brakes – Since the car has been sitting for more than two years, the brakes are sticky. While the car does roll freely, I think the right front caliper will need a re-build (may be original) and the left rear caliper will need some work as well.
- Lights – The left headlamp and turn signal are very dim. There may be a common part between them (relay) that needs replacing but I have not done the research.
- Oil Pressure sending unit – I broke part of this during install, where the wire connects. There is no readout on the gauge but this could be because of previously mentioned alternator issue.
- Odometer – Has been stuck at 24,224 since I’ve owned the car. I am sure that this is at least 124,224 but that is all of the certainty that I have in the reading. The Speedo worked last time car was driven (2009) and Tach worked fine at restart (after a couple of taps on the glass).
- Tires – Right front valve stem is leaking where it goes into wheel. The tire will hold pressure, but will needs to be checked frequently.
The Targa top frame front clips replaced are still attached but may need replacing.
I have all of the engine tins. They were removed to get better access the covers.
I have owned this car for 11 years and know it pretty well. The previous owner owned it for about five years. He kept it covered and I have kept it garaged since 2004. Here is a partial list (what I can remember or have receipts for) of what has been replaced, repaired or rebuilt on the car:
