1965 Porsche 911

Back from Media Blasting

We have just begun the process of restoring this very early 1965 Porsche 911 road car.

Originally supplied to Porsche Centre Brumos the famous racing dealer in Jacksonville America in Early 1965 and is from the very first series of 250 cars built in the first 3 months of that year (these early cars retained many of the unusual idiosyncrasies from the 1964 901’s). This car was imported into Germany in the late 80’s the engine and gearbox were completely overhauled by Manfred Rugen Motorentechnic and a FIA Historic Passport was issued for the car. A totally unmolested survivor still having its period correct floors,early 64/65 side sills,doors, original front & rear wings and 1st year of production front bonnet slam panel this car is not one to be confused with the many cars that have been rebuilt with the much later incorrect body panels. The car still retains it’s original matching numbers engine and is a true time capsule example and therefore we feel it would be sacrilege not to sympathetically refresh the car back to how it left the factory over 50 years ago.We have hand scrapped the shell and then gently soda blasted the whole shell and panels the condition and quality of the car is just amazing with only very minor areas needing any attention and you can clearly see the car has had no replacement panels in the past either from rust or damage. the car is currently on one of our factory Celette body jigs to check all the suspension pick up points are all correctly alligned any tiny rust areas will be repaired before the car is prepped for our usual high quality paintwork the car will be finished in its original light ivory colour.
