A genuine early 1965 Porsche 911 (300512) that was produced in the very first series of 250 cars built in the first three months of 1965. These early cars had many of the unusual idiosyncrasies that the 1964 901’s had and differed from the cars produced from April onwards. 300512 still retains many of these distinguishing features.
The car was originally supplied to Competition Cars in Culver City, California and at some point was imported back to Europe. It was at this time that the car was purchased by the Ex Porsche driver and Swedish Rally Ace Åke “Bryggarn” Andersson. Åke rallied the car with great success from 1992 to 2000. With many outright victories most notably the Historic RAC rally and in 1994 was the FIA Historic Trophy Winner (European Champion).
We have begun the metal work restoration on 300512 and will finish the body to our usual exacting standards with all 65 details in place. We will also be finishing the body without a roll cage so the new owner can decide whether to build a road or race car or maybe even somewhere in between as a period correct “Sports Purpose” car.
