Successful from launch, the first-generation, short-wheelbase (SWB) 911 produced through 1968 is coveted by enthusiasts and collectors today for its carbureted two-liter engine, visceral performance, and pure design.

This 1968 911 is an exceptional find, as it has benefited from over 45 years of single family ownership and remains in outstanding unrestored condition. As documented by the original window sticker, this 911 was well equipped with a long list of factory options, including the Sportomatic clutchless four-speed manual transmission, Veluran floor mats, front and rear bumper guards, a Becker Monte Carlo radio, full tinted glass, front and rear stabilizer bars, safety belts, an outside rearview mirror, and Pirelli tires. Passenger comfort was heightened with a dealer-installed Meier-Line air-conditioning unit, specially designed for the Porsche 91 1 and 912. Today, this 911 displays 82,700 miles, a figure that is supported by an extensive file of service records. Retaining the majority of its original paint, the 911 also retains its original glass, interior, and undercoating. Recently serviced, it is well detailed and ready to enjoy. An extensive file accompanies this very special early 911, which includes a copy of the Kardex, the Porsche CoA, receipts, records, manuals, original documents, and rare brochures.

Simply excellent, it provides the new owner with a potentially strong preservation class show contender and, of course, the immense joy and satisfaction that only an unrestored early 911 can deliver.
